Staff who work in Oaks.

Hooke Court. All arrived safely and they have enjoyed their afternoon team building activities.They have enjoyed their dinner, Spaghetti Bolognaise with choice of tomato or beef sauce (or no sauce), cheese, garlic bread and salad. Apple crumble and custard or fruit. The evening's activity was Greek urn making.

1.10.21 Kyan String Quartet visit. As part of the Two Moors festival year 4 and 6 were treated to a string workshop today. We enjoyed different pieces from Haydn and Benjamin Britton as well as a few pieces the children recognised.

15.9.21 Greek myths are great to roleplay. A real mix of love, revenge, Gods swallowing babies and then vomiting them up alive years later after being tricked into drinking potions. I'm sure you can imagine which character they were all keen to be!

10.9.21 Decorating our vases on Friday afternoon after looking at different patterns and designs on real Greek vases.

9.9.21. We made a start on our Greek vases today in Creative Thursday. Be ready to be impressed tomorrow, the designs are looking great.
