Christine Jefferies (ex parent) and her Biker friends delivered free Easter Eggs and cuddly toys to the whole school today. All the children had the chance to sit on a motor bike and listen to the engines roar. How exciting!
This is a picture of 6 of our KS2 children taking part in the fantastic ‘Strictly Junior Dance Competition’ on Saturday 19th March 2016.
The children rehearsed every week for 2 months to learn 2 routines – the Viennese Waltz and the Jive! The children dressed up in sparkly costumes to entertain the large crowd at the The Christian Life Centre in Cowley and were told they were the ‘cutest group that performed’!
Today lower school visited upper school to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday. We all enjoyed dancing the waltz, listening to the National Anthem and looking at pictures of the Queen. This was followed by a traditional British tea of cucumber sandwiches, scones, jam and cream. It was a fantastic afternoon of celebrations.
Thank you to Upper school for hosting the event.
This is a picture of Blue Class at the science museum in London on 21st March 2016. As part of the term’s topic, ‘Space Odyssey’, Blue Class have been learning about astronauts and their journey to space.
At the museum, Blue Class enjoyed going on a simulated 3D computer animated flight to the moon, where they experienced the sights and sounds of an Apollo expedition!
Three of our post 16 pupils were once again asked to work for TRAX and the Social Enterprise on Friday 15th April. Samuel, Thomas and Harry became waiters for the Lord Mayors charity dinner at the Oxford Town Hall. The young men excelled themselves as waiters serving the Lord Mayor and his distinguished guests.
They began by handing around the canapés which included ‘smoked salmon and cream cheese’ and ‘roast beef and mustard’ and then proceeded to serve a four course meal to 80 guests. They learnt that they had to serve to the left of the guests and clear away plates from the right, to not clear away plates until all the guests on the table had finished eating and that at all times they were on duty.
The Lord Mayor and his guests were very impressed by their professionalism as were the Directors of TRAX and the Social Enterprise. Samuel, Thomas and Harry all really enjoyed the evening, even though they all said it was very hard work, and they all especially appreciated the fact that they were paid for their efforts.
They left the evening asking when they might be able to work again.
This is a picture of Chanele, Rhianna and Libbie dressed up as characters from their favourite books for World Book Day, which was on Thursday 3rd March 2016.
Blue Class organised an afternoon of book-related events, including making bookmarks, a mini cinema showing our favourite stories and a book swap area!
