Since the start of the year choir have been working hard every Friday morning before school with Mrs Hudson. Yesterday we visited St Lukes for a very special performance. Our Oxford Grove choir wowed the audience with beautiful singing of a range of Christmas songs and carols and everyone was swaying along with a smile on their face. This is what Christmas is all about!
On Monday we are starting to raise money for Readathon to provide books and authors for children who are in hospital. You need to read as many books as you can, whenever you can, wherever you can and ask your family and friends to sponsor you! Remember that you can read books, magazines, newspapers and also read online by using Bug Club. Every little helps. Sponsor money will be collected in on the 16th January so you have all over the Christmas holidays to do this too and to raise as much money as we can. Good luck Oxford Grove!
