OAK BITES 10th JUNE 2020

OAK BITES 10th June 2020

Please follow us on Twitter @FairOakJS

Dear Fair Oak Family,


Happy Wednesday!




Reminder – Friendship choices for the next school year…


Further to Oak bites on the 3rd June, please be reminded that time is running out to complete the survey to indicate your child’s choice of friend(s) for next term. If you haven’t already done so, please speak to your child about the process – that they will be able to choose 5 friends from across the year group and that the school will do its best to get at least 1 of their choices in their class for next year. Once done, please complete the short survey monkey questionnaire (click here) by Midday on Monday 15th June. 


To date, only 265 responses have been received out of a possible 420! If you don’t respond to the survey, your child will not have had a say.





This week is our Fair Oak whole school STEAM WEEK. 


S.T.E.A.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. 

We were looking forward to the amazing Exxon Eddie's visit and other brilliant visitors to support our special event as last year, but this year needed a re-think. My favourite week couldn't go forgotten so I have created 5 videos of STEAM inspired activities which you can do at home (or in the garden), one for each day, which I hope you will join in with. The first 3 videos have been uploaded onto our YouTube channel and can be watched and joined in with by anyone in the school, any day and at any time. My main aim is for everyone to enjoy the tasks and apply your STEAM skills. Lots of children have been uploading their work on the Purple Mash Blog if you need some inspiration. 


The Activities

Monday started the week with a bang as it was inspired by the awe-inspiring Space X mission. Did you see it? If you missed it, you can catch-up on the YouTube NASA channel.  You will need a small bottle, fruit shoot works well, water and Alka-Seltzer or Berocca. Some people have found that the bottles are sealing incredibly well and you may find closing the sports cap (but not completely) will result in a fantastic take off. 

Tuesday -you will need a toilet roll tube and imagination/ creativity! 

I was incredibly impressed by the creativity of the children who have taken part already. Issac M, Asha G, Ben S, Anna F and Tom S deserve a huge round of applause for the most impressive ideas so far. 

Wednesday - (today) you will need lollysticks, elastic bands and a bottle top lid.

Thursday -you will need an empty plastic milk bottle and imagination/ creativity!

Friday - you will need milk, salt, lots of ice, a small and a larger zip-lock bag and lots of energy. A spoonful of sugar and flavourings such as vanilla too. It will be delicious and worth the effort.


Please post your photos, videos and comments on the Purple Mash science (STEAM WEEK) blog.  I hope you have enjoyed the tasks so far and enjoy the rest of the week. Don't forget, there are lots of Science Time videos for the whole school to join in with too on our YouTube channel.

Year 6 Leavers Hoodies are here!!

If you ordered a leavers hoodie for your Year 6 child, they will be coming home with the children over the next couple of weeks depending on when they are in school with their Bubble group.


If your child is not currently attending school in either bubble week, please come into school to collect them w/c 22nd June. Ideally, on the Monday between 11-11.30 am, when the gates are unlocked for the collection of work packs/food parcels etc. Thank you.
