A big thank you to Sasha who came in from Hoola Nation on Monday to run workshops to inspire the children with both their physical and mental wellbeing.
Every child went to the hall to try out some hoola hooping (even some of the teachers joined in). It was extremely fun and we all learnt some new skills!
We will be hosting more exciting wellbeing days with Hoola Nation throughout the year.
A Little Ball of Hair
A big thank you to Mrs Hambly, who came to visit Oak Class yesterday. She brought a copy of her new story, which is to be printed in the spring, read it to the class and asked for their feedback and ideas for illustrations. The book is based on a true story and is titled: A Little Ball of Hair.
The Match Girls of 1888
Even though the class turned up in their pajamas for Children in Need, we still went ahead with our mock court case based on the Match Girls strike of 1888. Ask the children some questions about it - who were the people involved? Why did they strike? I am sure they will enjoy telling you about it.
We have been practicing our Pop Art ready for the Image School Art Exhibition. We looked at some of the work from Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg.
A big thank you to Reverend Maureen and Mrs Cartlidge for giving up their time to come and talk to Oak Class this afternoon. The children learnt about: 'Our Boys', World War I and the war memorial, the history of the church and the uses of stained glass windows.
