Great Oaks Home Learning 

Message and links from Mrs Kenny 01/4/20

Hello! We are already half way through week 2 of our Home Learning and I can see that lots of you have been busy on the on-line activities I have set for you.  I haven’t had a request from everyone for their log in details for Active Learn ( )  yet so if you still need it this is what you need to do:

Please contact me for your individual username and password by sending an email request to our office email address : or by ringing the school mobile number: 07399 326030 and leaving a message with Mrs Bamforth.

History project:

Ok my history loving Great Oaks I have a little project for you! As everyone is talking about keeping safe and well in the world at the moment I would like you to find out about a man called Percy Shaw who came up with a brilliant invention which has helped to save many lives. Try and answer some of the following questions:

1. Where is he from?

2. When was he born? Is he still alive?

3. What job did he do?

4. What was he doing when he came up with his invention?

5. What did he invent?

6. What gave him the idea for his invention?

7. How does it help to keep us safe?

8. Draw a picture of his invention.

9. When you next go for a walk count how many of his invention you can spot.

You could make a fact file about him like this below:

I look forward to reading what you find out!

Could you be the next Percy Shaw?

Do you think you could invent something to keep us all safe and well at the moment? What would it be? Can you describe what it would do and draw a picture of what it looks like? Send me your ideas!

Lots of love from

Mrs Kenny
