Headteacher Update - Friday 10th June 2022
Welcome to Term 6 to all of our pupils and their parents! I hope you all had a fantastic half-term break. All of the staff are really looking forward to the term ahead - the last for this school year!
Our children have enjoyed this first week back at school and finding out about their new learning journeys for the term. This term, the subject in focus is Geography. We're looking forward to lots of field-work, map-reading skills and some off-site visits too, for some of our year groups.
In Reception, our pupils were visited by Ali the bus-driver, from Stagecoach in Eastbourne. This term, the children are learning about 'transport' and how things move. Ali brought his bus on to the school grounds and the children asked questions about the bus and had a look around, before Ali took them on a ride around town. They had a brilliant day.
We have had some fantastic 'Hive' groups this week, and the children have joined learning with their friends, and some children they know less well, too. Sensory Circuits have started in the morning, and the children who are attending are benefitting from the trampoline activities, rolls and balances, and having lots of fun too.
Well done to all of our certificate winners this week. Our 'Stars of the Week' are: Archie in Reception; Seth in Year 1; Frankie and Georgia-Mae in Year 2; Jayson and Annie-Rose in Year 3; AJ and Ollie H. in Year 4; Louis and Aiden in Year 5; Esther and Santiago in Year 6.
Congratulations to Year 3 Ashe Class and Year 5 Pankhurst Class who won the Term 5 Attendance Challenge. The leaderboard now resets for Term 6! Well-done to Harryson in Year 4, who won this week's Attendance Raffle.
We have lots of events taking place across the next few weeks, including our Aspiration Week and Sports Day. These will be listed on the Bulletin, weekly, and we will update them here, too. We are all really excited about Art Week at Oakwood next week!
Have a great weekend!
