Deputy Headteacher Update - Friday 15th March 2024

It's been another great week of learning at Oakwood this week. I have seen some wonderful examples of writing and art work produced by some very proud children!


After last week's British Heart Foundation fundraiser, we have this week raised money for Red Nose Day - and had great fun in bouncing for this worthy cause. Thanks you for all your contributions, they are greatly appreciated.


The week began with some visitors to the school who were looking at reading provision across all ages. They left greatly impressed with the confidence and effort of the pupils as well as the skill of the staff.


Year 1 have been doing some practical science work and looking at how changing the size and shape of a boat's sail can make it move faster in the water. They were having a lot of fun when I saw them! Year 5 have continued with their craft based careers project. They have been fully engaged in the design and making process as well as developing a greater idea of a range of career opportunities. Year 6 continue to work very hard in their SATS preparations, but have also been very creative and produced some amazing art work in the afternoons.


Although we had no celebration assembly today due to the bouncy castle, we still presented 'Stars of the Week' and the list of winners can be found in this week's bulletin.


It was fabulous to see so many of you at our Parents' Evening consultations this week. There were lots of proud parents and happy children around on Tuesday and Thursday. If you were unable to make an appointment this week, please do speak to your child's class teacher and they will make arrangements to see you at a time that suits everybody.


We have another exciting week to look forward to next week, with some events carried over from science week - including a hedgehog visiting some year groups and a 'Silly Science' session for all!


Also, we have extended the writing competition into next week to give as many children as possible the chance to enter. finally, do look at the bulletin for the dates for our popular curriculum events which take place in the last week of term.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone next week!


With my best wishes
