Christmas Dinner!

Thank you to all at City Catering, and especially Julie our Head Cook, for a fabulous Christmas Dinner today. As usual, the children enjoyed pulling crackers donated by the OSA, and a proper festive lunch, sprouts and all!

Panto Pandemonium!

Years 4 and 6 were our final year groups to entertain us with their Christmas performance yesterday - and what a cracker it was!

The evil witch was trying to take over all the pantos in the land, and make the baddies win. It was up to 5 courageous Oakwood Pupils to save the day by collecting objects from Panto-Land.

All's well that ends well, and good overcame evil.

Another brilliant performance to make us all proud! Well done Years 4 and 6!

Year 3 and Year 5 Christmas is...

The Late Wise Man

Years 3 and 5 treated us to two magnificent performances yesterday.

They told the story of the fourth Wise Man, Artaban, who was always late for everything!

Luckily, this meant that he was able to help lots of people along the way.

As well as amazing singing from the choir, brilliant acting and slick technical support, we also heard some delightful solos and some of our musicians performed for us too.

Well done, Years 3 and 5!

Whoops-A-Daisy Angel!

Year R have treated us to a fantastic first Christmas performance over the past two days.

They told the story of "Whoops-A-Daisy Angel", who keeps getting things wrong - her halo is wonky, her dress is a mess and she is just so clumsy!

However, she ends up with the most important job of all - and does it brilliantly!

Southampton City Mission with Y2

Southampton City Mission came to visit Y2 to explore the Christmas Story and the concept of light. The children explored what they understood by light and different sources of light then made their own "stained glass windows" with pictures from the Christmas Story. Thank you Southampton City Mission for a really fun day.

Y4 Green Ship Art

This term in English Year 4 have been busy learning the Green Ship. Inspired by Quentin Blake's story we wrote our own ship stories, and use watercolour and ink to create illustrations to go with them.
