Happy Birthday Vincent Van Gogh - self portrait & Sunflowers
Monday 30th March 2020
Happy Monday Oak Class,
So, we Spring forward an hour (yes, that’s how I remember the clocks go forward 1 hour this time of year). More chance to enjoy the sunshine. Can you find out who put forward the idea of British Summer time? There’s a Kentish connection!
Clip of the day is David Attenborough meeting some adorable meerkats!
It is the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh’s birthday, today. Can you research some of his paintings and see if you can paint in his style? What did Vincent do to himself when he was unwell? (Clue in the self portrait).
I have uploaded two new fun book based activity resources Into Extra resources - Reading:
For those in my puppet club - here’s a fab puppet making idea - as long as you haven’t run out of toilet roll!
And, I saw this homemade catapult and thought it was such fun!
It’s Easter soon so you can start making Easter cards - go to Pinterest for some great ideas https://www.pinterest.co.uk/kidssteamlab/easter-crafts/
Finally, if you’d like a 10 minute writing challenge from some published children’s authors go to this website https://authorfy.com/10minutechallenges/
Have a fun learning week!

It's Friday Oak Class!
Hope your first week of home learning has gone well. I have really enjoyed all the amazing work you have produced this week. Most of your great work is on the Your super work page (unless there has been a technical issue!).
Well done to those who have won Superhero learner certificates this week and I look forward to seeing more of your amazing work next week.
Don't forget, our MP is running an online live surgery TODAY at 3pm and wants to hear from you about you experiences of home learning, so far. You will need parental guidance as it is on Facebook at https://m.facebook.com/tomtugendhat/
Have a lovely relaxing weekend.

Hello Oak Class
Miss Leigh is in school and looking forward to seeing some of the children today!
Great new resource - Miss Chapman has signed the school up to the First News website resources, a newspaper for children. Each child has their own log in and log in details which is on the useful website page. You can choose what activities you do and they include debates, comprehensions and news articles. https://ihub.firstnews.co.uk/
