In line with this year’s Comic Relief theme of ‘share a smile’, students at Oak Hill Academy and Oriel Academy, both in Feltham, had a day exchanging jokes, dancing and singing to Beyonce!

Students across both schools wore an item of red to represent Comic Relief.

At Oak Hill Academy, students took part in numerous activities to share a smile. Jokes were created and shared in class, and quizzes on the heritage of Red Nose Day were also completed.

At break time, students took part in a dance off! Two groups from each year group battled it out to be the overall winner for their year group. They were judged by members of staff and the groups with the highest scores were awarded a certificate and prize.

Rachael Saim, Principal of Oak Hill, said: “With everyone being back at school now, this year’s Comic Relief was perfect timing.

“It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to have fun and celebrate with their friends again for the first time in a while.

“Lots of smiles were shared and celebrating with their friends again really helped boost their mental wellbeing following lockdown.”

At Oriel Academy, fun and positivity were also themes of the day!

In Reception class, students took part in a special sing-a-long. To share a smile, they sang their own version of Beyonce’s hit ‘Single Ladies’ – this one was called ‘Red Noses’!

Kirsty D’Cruz, Reception teacher, said: “The children in Reception love to sing, so doing a sing-a-long was the perfect way for them to celebrate Comic Relief today.

“Lots of smiles and laughter were shared and the students all really loved it! It was great to see how much they enjoyed it.”
