In Oak class, parents were invited in to participate with their child in a coding lesson. The children and parents were challenged to create their own interactive Google logo. Parents really enjoyed the session - please read some of their comments below.
You can also view some still images of the logos which were created during the session.
Journey through space, the final frontier. Navigate beyond the sun; the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system. We will be investigating the 8 planets, look closely at the moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth. We will investigate gravity and shoot off into space.
Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone? Or are there other life forms out there?

During Oak's literacy lessons, children have been writing their own moon myths linked to our Stargazers topic. These creative writing pieces were inspired by moon myths from around the world including: China, Africa and North America. Click on the images and have a read of two of our myths below and be immersed in our class moon-mythology.
Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone ... we have been investigating the bizarre and eccentric minds of gallery rebels
Art can be an act of rebellion. Dream the dream or show your nightmares. Paintbrushes and sketch books at the ready.
A child at war
A siren sounds and a Spitfire zooms overhead! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war.
This half term, we’ll imagine what it was like to be evacuated and live with a family other than our own. Using different source materials, we’ll learn about evacuation and write letters to our families ‘back home’. We’ll plot the Second World War’s events on a timeline and learn about rationing, Pearl Harbour and the Battle of Britain. From a range of maps, we’ll identify safe and dangerous places during the war and make persuasive posters to support the war effort. After reading an extract from The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, we’ll write our own diaries. From a range of sources, we’ll find out about children and school during the war and learn about discrimination that existed at the time. We’ll learn about what it was like during the Blitz and think about how soldiers might have felt. In D&T, we’ll make Anderson shelters and cook delicious wartime food.
At the end of the topic, we’ll reflect on Winston Churchill’s stirring speeches and write our own. We’ll compose and perform wartime songs and create a presentation to show what we have learned.

As part of our WW2 project , we looked at recipes which were created using rationed foods then had a go at making some chocolate oat cakes
