Headteacher Update - Friday 2nd February 2024
Welcome to this week’s Weekly Update!
We have had lots of fun with ‘Numbers Day’ today – there have been personal Maths challenges around school, for children to enjoy, as well as lots of Maths and number activities in classes. Our Reception children have been rolling dice, matching numbers and creating number-block towers. Across the school, it’s been brilliant!
Year 6 Parks Class shared their learning in today’s Celebration Assembly – some fantastic Sci-fi stories, knowledge recall of the Space Race and a celebration of ‘body image’ and self-respect. The children presented superbly and had an attentive audience too.
We celebrated a huge number of certificates today – Mathematicians and Writers of the Week and our ‘Stars of the Week’ too (the full list can be found on page 4 this week). We also awarded our very special ‘Lunchtime Awards’ too. ‘Well done’ to all of our amazing winners this week! The 'Golden Lunchbox’ was won by Year 1 Nightingale Class this week, who have a class reward to look forward to next week!
Year 2 Roper class picked up the 10 points in this week’s ‘Attendance Challenge’ and lead the way this term…Can they be caught?
Our pupils in Reception have been talking to all of the staff this week, finding out about all of the different jobs that all the people at Oakwood do. There are some pictures further on to show you who they spoke to.
Unbelievably, we have just one more week of Term 3 remaining. We are really looking forward to welcoming you to our Curriculum Events next week! The children have been busy planning and preparing for your visit…you are in for a real treat! We hope you will enjoy sharing your child’s learning…they are excited about you seeing them in school.
We will also find out who the Term 3 ‘Stars of the Term’ will be, so lots to look forward to!
Just a reminder that the last day of term is Friday 9th February 2024, returning to school for Term 4 on Monday 19th February 2024!
Have a great weekend!
