This week Hedgehog class have been working with year 6 to do some art work. The children have really enjoyed making new friends and the year 6 pupils were very helpful. The children are producing work to go in the school halls to show how fantastic The Oval School is. 

Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth!

Last Friday we had a fantastic day celebrating the Queen's birthday. The children all looked very smart for the party.
We went to the cooking room to see some of the cakes that each class had made and we were very impressed with their hard work.

We had a great afternoon watching all the classes perform their chosen song or dance. 

It was a wonderful day and the rain managed to stay away for most of the day!
