Thank you NHS
Year 5 parents do not forget the Kent and Medway test application will be open from 1st June - 30th June. We do not yet know whether there will be any changes to the testing dates or arrangements.
If you are a key worker and will be returning to work please notify me on email@example.com regarding the days you wish your child to attend school.
I expect that some of you are worried about returning to school tomorrow and some of you who are continuing with your home learning wish you are were able to return. We are trying our hardest to make it all as normal as possible for you all, whilst ensuring we keep you and your families safe
We know it is strange times, but it is all beginning to get a little easier as rules relax and things start to return to normal. Have a look at the link below on the Book of Hopes - it has some lovely pictures and things which may make you smile or may even inspire you.
Enjoy the outside this week, make the most of the sunshine and fresh air, keep working hard and trying your best, and make the most of your learning opportunities whether you are at home or school.
Take care of yourselves and your families,
Returning to School
On Monday 1st June we welcome back to school, children in Year R, Year 1 and Year 6.
Book of Hopes
We are expecting that some children will find coming into school very daunting on Monday, Here is a link to an online book called The Book of Hopes, which may help during this difficult time of transition.
Our New Look Classrooms
We are busy making our classrooms ready for our return on 1st June.

No Printer - Not a 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.

Collective Worship at Home
Thy Kingdom Come
It would be wonderful if you would like to join in with ‘Thy Kingdom Come’. It is a national initiative that invites us all to pray in the 10 days between Ascension and Pentecost (21st to 31st May 2020).
The Diocese of Rochester is encouraging its parishes, schools and communities to pray together at this time. There are some great ideas for you to try on https://www.thykingdomcome.global/category-families-and-young-people
Check out the video of the Archbishop of Canterbury trying out the new digital family prayer adventure map. https://www.thykingdomcome.global/resources/digital-family-prayer-adventure-map

Composers of the Week
Randall Stuart Newman was born in 1943 in Los Angeles and he is still alive!
Randy Newman is an American composer who is most famous for his animated film compositions - probably the most famous song is 'You've got a friend in me.' from Toy Story. Film music was in his blood as other members of his family worked in the music industry and he has won many awards for his work. He loved New Orleans Jazz and Gershwin who wrote jazzy classical music which influenced his style. He is added to the Songwriters'Hall of Fame and has been honoured as a Disney Legend.
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.
