Christoph from The Junk Orchestra visited us on Thursday 10th May. We had an amazing time learning how we can make music out of rubbish - literally! We had a whole school assembly and then a class workshop where we got to form our own orchestra and play the different instruments. When we got back to our classroom we carried on looking for things to make music with! It was an amazing day :)

What an exciting week! On Wednesday we all came to school wearing odd socks to raise awareness of anti bullying week. In Oak class we talked about what makes us different and what makes us special. We thought about how we should treat people and who we could tell if we are not happy about how somebody has treated us. We have also been enjoying the story of Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and have learnt lots of owl facts. Ask us what we know about owls! Also this week our new touch screen arrived!
