Acting Head of School Report

It has been a really enjoyable week at Oakwood, with lots of great learning going on!


Once again our Nursery children worked with our friends from Eastbourne Gardens Care Home. This time, our children went on the minibus to visit the residents in their home - and it was a wonderful morning for everyone concerned. The children were beautifully behaved as well! Well done to all our Nursery children.


There has been fantastic work all around the school again. Year 6 were doing some amazing drama work in the hall that linked in to their History unit on Smugglers. Several of the children showed me examples of their written work that had been inspired by what they had done. They told me that the drama had helped them gain a better understanding of the various 'roles' involved in smuggling.


Year 4 shared some great work they have been doing as well. I saw wonderful 'Helping Hands for the World' which will hang in their classrooms. On them, the children made five pledges (one on each finger) regarding how they will help preserve our planet. This involved recycling more and not wasting water.


Oakwood are currently at the top of the table for the Aurora Schools Times Tables Rockstars challenge! There is one more week to go - so keep playing those multiplication games as Heron Park are very close behind us! Well done especially to Parks class who are the leading class in the challenge so far!


Today's celebration assembly saw our 'Stars of the Week' receive their awards, and the winners are named on this week's bulletin. Rashford class  won the Golden Lunchbox due the their outstanding lunchtime behaviour, and Stephenson class have taken the lead in this term's attendance challenge. Well done to Noah C (number 34) who won the individual attendance raffle.


I hope you all have a wonderful bank holiday weekend and hope the sun shines for everyone!


With my best wishes
