Little Acorns

December 2016

Firstly, we need to give a special mention to one of our pupils: Ryan has been making really good progress in his swimming lessons and he has received a Discovery Duckling Award Certificate level 1. Well done Ryan!

All the children have been working to produce our fabulous cookie jars for our Enterprise project this month. We had to go off on the bus to the supermarket to buy jars and ingredients and then we had to carefully fill the jars with the right amount of flour, sugar and spices. It was fun to experiment with the soft flour, crunchy sugar and smell the spices too!

We have been very busy with lots of Christmas themed activities. We have decorated the nursery with lights and tinsel and have made Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas cards to take home. At our art sessions we have used paint, glue and glitter to decorate circles of wood with pictures of reindeer and robins, and we have been very creative with bundles of sticks and spruce tree branches. When these are dry they will hang on the tree.

On the 13th December the whole school was delighted to be entertained by M & M’s production of Cinderella. It was all very colourful and exciting and quite loud! This was swiftly followed by our own Christmas show celebrating the 10th anniversary of Oaklands School. The nursery chose Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer as our song and the children performed brilliantly. Well done everyone!

Sending all of our best wishes to everyone for a happy Christmas holiday and we will see you all in the New Year.
