Questionnaire About Your Experiences During Lockdown

The school has produced a very short questionnaire for those children who will be returning to school next week, (and for those who have returned in the last couple of weeks). We would be really grateful if you could complete it  to describe the time you and your family have experienced during the recent restrictions. Please click on the link below to access the questionnaire. Understandably, we have not “been in the same boat” and we appreciate that some of our children will have maybe had different experiences, leading to differing emotions, to their peers. It is important for us to know and understand this and therefore by completing the questionnaire we will hopefully be able to understand and predict some behaviours that your child may/may not be exhibiting.

Some of the questions may be difficult to answer and we appreciate that. Both Mrs Cox and Mrs Place are always here if you need us. By forming a clear picture of their last few months it really will help us all to move smoothly as possible into the next phase. It has also been an invaluable method for parents to share specific concerns they have about their child, as the comments are shared with their class teacher.

Thank you.

Home Learning

No Printer - No problem

Please do not worry if you don’t have a printer and your child has work sheets to complete. You can screen shot them on your device and use the editing tools to write on them. When finished, screen shot again to save the completed work sheets. We will accept these and may then post them on our pages as photographs. We love to see the work your children are doing.

 Composer of the Week     

Scott Joplin - The King Of Ragtime

 

              Scott Joplin - Wikipedia

Scott Joplin was an American composer who was born in  1868 and died in 1917. He was most famous for a new style of music at the time called Ragtime. 

The Joplins were a musical family, with Florence( his mum) being a singer and banjo player and Giles(dad)  a violinist; Scott learned how to play the guitar at a young age and later took to the piano, displaying a gift for the instrument. Julius Weiss, a German music teacher who lived in Joplin's hometown, gave the young pianist further instruction. Joplin was also a vocalist and would play the cornet as well.

His music became very popular in the 1930s with pieces called The Maple Leaf Rag and The Entertainer. It is called Ragtime because of the syncopated rhythms  in the right-hand melody.

This is a link to  The Maple Leaf Rag played by Scott Joplin himself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMAtL7n_-rc

and this is The Entertainer

If you have ideas for another composer next week please message me on the  Oakwood  class page or you can message your own class teacher. I shall look forward to your ideas.
