Today, Oak Class visited the Seniors Group at the Horspath Hub to sing carols. I was extremely proud of how the children represented our school and how well they sang. At the end, the seniors joined in with a rousing rendition of ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’. The children were rewarded with a round of applause after each carol and at the end squash and biscuits.
On Friday 29th November, Horspath School Band performed at the Wheatley Christmas Fayre. They were joined by friends including past pupils and parents. A large crowd enjoyed the mixture of carols and other well known tunes and there was even some audience participation. Congratulations to all that took part and a big ‘thank you’ to Pat for organising it.
In Oak Class we have been learning about how musical instruments make their sounds. We then designed and made our own instruments. When we had finished, we evaluated how successful our designs were and whether they could actually be played.
On Friday afternoon, children across the school pair up to share stories and books. It is fantastic to see children enjoying reading stories to each other and working with children in different classes.
