Saplings Class


Welcome to Oak’s class page. Oak class is the Springfield House School transition class. Pupils who are new to the school begin their time at school in Oak class.

We are very lucky to have our own separate unit, which we share with one other class, in the lovely school grounds. We have two lovely classrooms, a quiet room, a sensory room and a conservatory where we eat our lunch and snacks and do cooking. We also have a fantastic outdoor space which is split into different areas. There is a learning zone, a large sandpit, a climbing frame and playhouse, grass to play on and garden space for planting and growing our own fruit, vegetables and flowers. 

We spend a lot of time getting to know each other and finding out about all our likes, dislikes, strengths and challenges. As well as all the normal fantastic things children do at school, we have a big focus on learning to become successful learners and helping us to see school as a brilliant place to be.

We are really looking forward to helping everyone settle in well and are learn about Springfield House and all the exciting things we are going to be doing here.

We hope you come back soon and enjoy looking at the photos of some of the exciting things we will have been up to.

Please look at our photos opposite.

We are learning all about traditional tales, from the Three Billy Goats Gruff, Goldilocks and the Three, Hansel and Gretel and Bears and Jack and the Beanstalk.

We have looked at the sequence of the stories and acted them out using story language and we have used part of the stories to involve some of our mathematics – like counting Jacks beans and the hunting for the numbered bears.
