Dear Fair Oak Family
News for all pupils
Just a reminder to check out the Fair Oak Junior School YouTube channel – you will find lots of lessons but also some ‘how to’ videos – including how to upload work on to Purple Mash – so that teachers can see it and comment!
Please remember that the daily timetable on your child's year group tab is there to help and support families, please only complete as much as you can and what fits with your family's circumstances. I am sure you are all doing a fantastic job and remember we are always here for help and support where possible. If extra work is required please check out Mr Stredwick’s PE challenges and Mrs Tottle’s Music lessons (which were emailed separately) as well as all of the other extra's on your child's page such as the mindfulness activities or activities posted on the general home learning page.
As you may remember from some time ago, Mr De Silva sent out correspondence based on building work which has been scheduled to take place across the whole campus. The timescales for this work to begin have been changed a number of times due to various circumstances including the covid pandemic. There are plans for lots of work to commence across the whole campus impacting on Wyvern, FOIS and FOJS. I will update you further as the work progresses but as a reminder and information to new parents, we are going to be having a new entrance and office block built where the current staff car park is based, we are losing our playground next to the infant school as this initially will become a base for the contractors and afterwards will be given to the Infant school as a playing area due to increasing demands on the school for places and to become a 5-form entry school. We are also going to be having some work carried out on the millennium garden to make this a much more useable space transforming it into a new playing area/sports court. As you can see this will be a busy period of time on top of all the demands already on schools. A 'soft' start date we have been given from the contractors is Monday 18th January. At this time, they will be setting up the site compound. From the 1st February work on the new office block is due to commence. As always dates are subject to change and we will continue to update you as and when new information becomes available.
What will the impact be on children and families of FOJS?
News for Year 3
Thank you for all your support with the work the children have completed so far.
A video has been made to support you with how you could upload photographs of the work completed to their personal Purple Mash folder. Teachers will be able to access the folders and see what they children have completed and share their achievements. There is also a class blog for your child to write on should they be unable to access a piece of work or find that they need some support. The comments are visible to the members of staff but need to be approved by staff first so don't worry if their comments can't be seen when they send it.
News for Year 4
It has come to our attention that some of our Year 4 work packs (paper copies), have been photocopied incorrectly and are missing slides. This has given the illusion that only answers are available for some of the practice pages. This is most certainly not the case and should you wish to see the maths pack in its entirety please head to the website or ask the office if you can come and collect a new one. We apologise for this error and this will be resolved for next week’s pack.
