The Acorn Project!
Over the last few weeks, a team of Year 6 children have been taking part in the Acorn Project, at Oakhaven Hospice. After successfully
completing application forms to explain why they would like to take part in the project and being chosen to represent the school, the team of 13 children spent their time each week meeting carers, patients and volunteers, working on various craft activities, performing a medley of World War Two songs – even giving up their INSET afternoon so the project could begin. It was a fantastic few weeks and, in line with their studies on World War Two, they became evacuees and were asked to take home a small cardboard box and fill it with items that they thought were appropriate to have taken away to visit a new family, when escaping the war. Each week they then explained their choices and why these items had been chosen. The items ranged from precious family photos to the more practical side of life which included toilet roll! The children thoroughly enjoyed the project and were gifted with a certificate, goody bag, all the arts and craft activities undertaken and many new friendships in place. Very well done team, for bringing all the MOSPS values throughout the project. It truly was an amazing project this year!
