Summer Term 2017.

Taking part in the Spelling Bee at Glossopdale Community College.

As part of their topic on Democracy during the last half term, Oak Class formed 6 new political parties. They gave speeches to their constituents (Hawthorn Class),made poster and rosettes, issued polling cards, set up a polling station and held their own General Election. The candidates and parties were:

Samantha Betts - Life Party
Harry Galt - The Easy Way
Daniel Porter - Freedom Party
Kyle Shenton-Cox - People’s Party
Jasmine Tomlinson - People’s Voice Party
Ila Wood - The British Keys.

The party with the most votes was the People’s Party which meant that Kyle Shenton-Cox was duly elected as the Member of Parliament for Hawthorn Class. Well done the People’s Party.

Look at our wonderful artwork, inspired by Brazilian artist, Romero Britto.

Reminder - there will be a brief meeting about Condover on Monday 5 June at 6pm for adults only.

Happy Christmas from all the children in Oak.

On Tuesday, 13 December, Oak class set up their classroom as a gurdwara - a Sikh temple. They invited members of staff and the children from Willow class to show them all they had learnt about Sikhism this term.

Oak attended a dance morning at Glossopdale Community College together with other primary schools. In small groups the children made up their own dance that retold the story of Pandora’s box.

Oak class visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Wednesday 28th September. We had an excellent day with well behaved children who were keen to answer questions and who showed interest in the ‘back stories’ behind the sculptures. They particularly enjoyed working in teams to construct their own sculpture based on two given words.
