Spring Into Action Sponsored Event

As the weather has warmed up, we have been busy enjoying the outdoors and ‘springing into action’ for our sponsored event with the help of the Friends of Oakwood.

We had a sensory obstacle course around the playground.

Look how much fun we had raising money for our school !

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored us and a huge thank you to everyone who helped to arrange the fun.

Book Week Cooking!

All classes have had a bag of cookery ingredients this week and the children have been making tasty treats linked to our stories.

Owl Babies nests, Jack and the Beanstalk cakes and jam sandwiches as well as our pancakes from Tuesday.

So tasty!

Dressing up and fun in classes

Throughout the week we have been sharing a dressing up box for some of our favourite characters from stories and games to play.

Who will we be today?

We have also been getting very creative, making models and having fun with characters from our favourite stories.

Jack and the Beanstalk

On Wednesday we were joined by the Funtime theatre group who performed Jack and the Beanstalk for us.

The beanstalk grew so quickly it took us quite by surprise!

We all enjoyed the songs and story.

Nicky our cook and the team in the kitchen also added to our Jack and the Beanstalk day by decorating our puddings – delicious!

On Monday we had birds nests and chocolate mice on our cakes as we had the 2 owls visit us in school.

Thank you so much everyone, we really enjoyed them.

Pancake Day Fun!

We celebrated Shrove Tuesday with lots of pancake fun in our classrooms and school hall. We decorated giant cardboard pancakes, made pancake faces and took part in a pancake race.

Of course, we were also able to try them – yum, yum!

Puppet Workshop

We were joined by Flip, Dippy and Co. puppet company yesterday. The children were able to meet the puppets and interact with them.

We had a lot of fun!

Buzz Lightyear

We also had a visit from Buzz Lightyear! He visited all of the classrooms throughout the day to hand out World Book Day vouchers for the children to take home.

‘To infinity … and beyond!’

Owl Babies

We all know and love the story of ‘Owl Babies’ and to start off our book week, we have been really lucky to welcome some real owls into school.

Some children were able to hold the owls on their arm with the protective glove and under the close supervision of their handler.

What a fantastic opportunity to see and ask questions about these magnificent birds up close.

We even got to see their friend ferret.

Book Week 2019

We have an exciting week in store to celebrate Book Week 2019!

Keep watching our blogs to see all of the wonderful experiences we will have throughout the week, all around our topic ‘The Stories People Tell’.

In the Reception area you will already be able to see examples of our hard work at home to illustrate some of our favourite stories.

Well done everyone!
