Today, we were joined by some rock musicians who sang and rocked for us! They belong to a rockschool club called ‘irock’. They teach children to form bands and play the instruments. During the session, they chose some children to play the instruments – or should I say – ‘jam’ !
Toby, a boy in year 6 was in his element and performed alongside them on the rock guitar with a little tune from ‘Nivada!’
Here are a few photos of the event:

Music and Magic Makes for a Marvellous Morning
Today the whole school went on a musical trip to hear some classical ‘live’ orchestral music at Guildford’s G-Live venue. There were many other schools and we were lucky enough to be seated at the front. Music by Handel, Tchaikovsky, Mozart and a musical story by Hans Christian Anderson – ‘Tubby the Tuba’, was interwoven with a variety of magic – one included a very long balloon being swallowed.
We all enjoyed the concert and towards the end had an obligatory song to sing- a-long to. During one of the pieces, Charlie was spotted dancing away and getting into the feel of the music. So, when a selection of children were required, who better to ask than our very own Charlie in Oaks Class!
Yes…he really is levitating!
Well done Charlie, we were all very proud of you.
Oak class have been enjoying playing with some very large cardboard boxes left over from a delivery last week. So far they have been used as a house, a bed and a life sized jack-in-a-box!
Today a couple of the children suggested that we make a ball pit! We raided the PE shed for all the plastic balls we could find and the children had plenty of fun in their make shift, al fresco ball pit.
This week in Oak Class we have been learning about The Very Hungry Caterpillar, writing shopping lists for fruit and talking about healthy eating.
This morning, the children followed instructions to make fruit kebabs. They washed and cut up the fruit and then threaded it onto a skewer. The best part was of course eating them (especially as they were each allowed to sneak 2 marshmallows on it too!)
Next week we will be retelling the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar 🙂
Today, Oak Class went on their first outing, a walk to the Rec. We were number and letter investigators spotting signs all along the main road. We looked at signs, symbols, numbers and even a map on our way. We had a lovely (but cold!) play in the park before we headed back to school for snack time. The children were beautifully behaved and sensible throughout. Well Done Oaks!
We will continue being number investigators over half term for our homework.
Mrs Evans worked her usual magic by creating a lovely retirement cake for Mrs Cantoni on her final day of term. Yum Yum!
