Oak Class 

Welcome to Oak Class.

Oak Class is a Year 2 class.  Our teacher is Miss Beamish and our teaching assistant is Mrs Burkitt.


 Welcome to Oak Class home page! We really hope you enjoy exploring all our amazing learning.


Calling all volunteers!

In year 2 we really value your child's reading and how this can have a massive impact on their education.

We are therefore looking for any parents, carers, grandparents or family members who may have a spare hour in their week to come in and read with our outstanding children.

Any time you have that you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
