Cats Protection visit in Young Oaks Class

On Monday, Juliette from Cats Protection visited Young Oaks as part of our learning linked to Varjak Paw. Among answering a plethora of questions, Juliette also taught the children how to understand the body language and behaviour of cats. The children were given a fun activity book all about cats and a cat mask to take away.

Inspiration for a Disney character

In Young Oaks class, children learnt that Walt Disney was inspired to create the character of Mickey Mouse while gazing out of the window of a train.  The Young Oaks pupils then spent some time outside in the school grounds, looking for inspiration to create a Disney character of their own, which they then drew in their art books.

French Day

Young Oaks children were lucky enough to have a specialist French teacher come in and spend the morning with us, giving us a taste of life as a French child. 

The day started with learning some new French vocabulary and playing lots of fun, interactive games to help us remember these words. After break we had the pleasure of trying some wonderful French foods, which the children did fantastically. Not only were they very polite with their pleases and thank yous, they were also very brave at trying lots of new foods. We then tried our hand at art, looking at Monet and trying to replicate some of his famous artwork. 

I was very proud of how the children behaved, and our visitor commented on how lovely Young Oaks were as a class.
