Oak class workshop with Ansel Mandingo

Oak class have been working with a Jamaican man called Ansel Mandingo. He is an excellent story teller and has been teaching Oak how to rap like a Jamaican. The story was about a lazy teenager who was engaged to a beautiful woman. At the end, he scared all of the girls in Oak Class. The next day, he taught Oak how to rap. Everyone enjoyed it as much as dodge ball! All of the children tried very hard at making some lyrics, and it was amazing. Once Friday assembly had come, Ansel was showing the adults what the whole school had done. Oak class showed off their raps, and then the whole school started dancing in the hall!

This was one of the best visitors that Oak had received! They thought Ansel was hilarious in their assembly and he was an amazing rapper!

Stan Kenyon 2012

In Oak Class, children have started on their new goal. The goal is "making your journey to school better".  Their ways of being creative whilst learning is incredible. One of our pupils has made a cigarette to go towards 'stopping people smoke'. But he has put warning signs and ways to stop smoking on it as well! Another pupil has made a fantastic model with graffiti on a wall. One side has a clear wall with pleasant surroundings, but the other side has litter everywhere as well.

This is the wall which says "stop grafitti" on it.

And this is on the other side of the wall.

Here is a park that has lots of 'open me!' flaps.

Mrs Warren was flabbergasted at the sheer work by the children! And when some children had finished, she was amazed at the fact that some children had finished in a week!
