End of Year Production of 'Treasure Island'
This year the children in Oak class performed their end of year performance in an auditorium decorated to resemble the Admiral Benbow tavern. Family and friends gathered to watch this wonderful performance.
The show reflected all the hard work and effort the children had put in over the last few weeks and they didn’t disappoint.
I think we will all have the line ‘cheese on toast’ playing in our heads for some time to come!
Remembrance Day Service 11th November 2021
In preparation for Remembrance Day, the children in Oak Class have been learning about the Dickin Medal that was instituted in 1943 in the United Kingdom by Maria Dickin to honour the work of animals in World War II.
It is a bronze medallion, bearing the words "For Gallantry" and "We Also Serve" within a laurel wreath, carried on a ribbon of striped green, dark brown, and pale blue. It is awarded to animals that have displayed "conspicuous gallantry or devotion to duty while serving or associated with any branch of the Armed Forces or Civil Defence Units". The award is commonly referred to as "the animals' Victoria Cross ". Oak Class focused particularly upon the story of 'Able Sea Cat Simon'.
The children have also worked alongside local artist Sarah Hicks, creating lanterns in preparation for the service at St George and the Martyr Church, Preston today.
