Performing Arts with Meg and Angela – August 2020
It is wonderful to welcome all the pupils back to school this term and we have launched straight into exploring Music, Art, Drama and Dance with every class in our ever-developing Oaklands Theatre (previously known at the Hall!).
Our new project is a Journey Through The Seasons, starting with Spring and making our way through Summer, Autumn and Winter. We have transformed the hall into a magical sensory space, with stage lights, disco lights, torches, projection and huge visual props, made by our very own stars of the show: the Oaklands pupils! It is an exciting and stimulating environment to be in, especially when we combine it with music, story-telling, dance and arts and crafts.
We look forward to continuing our creative journey, making lots of props, singing lots of songs, playing lots of instruments, making lots of artwork and, most importantly, having lots of fun!
Music at Oaklands: Unfortunately, due to necessary restrictions in place to keep everyone safe during the coronavirus pandemic, the Music Therapy service, class Music lessons and the Staff Singing Group have had to be put on hold for the time being. Hopefully sessions will be able to resume just as soon as it is safe to do so but don’t worry, there are still plenty of exciting musical experiences going on every day in classrooms across the school! Music and creativity are at the heart of everything at Oaklands School!
