Little Big Sing
On Wednesday morning, Oaks went to Billingshurst Primary School to take part in the ‘Little Big Sing’. They were part of a massed choir which included six other local schools. They had been very busy learning 3 songs, one of which they shared at their Sharing Assembly recently. It was a wonderful morning and the children were really well behaved. We were called, “the smiliest school I’ve ever seen.” As Mrs. Simpson likes actions to help the children learn the words, we had actions for all 3 songs. One of them was used to teach all of the other children. Shipley were very proud and keen to demonstrate.
Here we are singing on our own to the rest of the schools. Mrs. Simpson was extremely proud of the children as they remembered all of the words and actions and sang beautifully. Well done Oaks.
Remembrance - 1918-2018
During Week 9, Oaks learned about the meaning of Remembrance and how poppies are used as a symbol. Poppies were created in lots of different ways, using 'Where the Poppies now Grow' as an inspiration.
