Year 6 Prom

The morning after the night before...!

Thanks so much to all parents, staff and, of course, our leaving Y6 pupils for making the prom a truly memorable evening.

We've tried to make the photos a bit easier to look at this year, so click on the image below for the slideshow! (Use the cursor keys on your keyboard, or swipe left to move through the photos!)

Year 1 Space Day

Year 1 have had a fun day by dressing up in anything "space" related. The children looked fantastic!

Activities included cooking, space games, solving maths problems and having a disco.

Oakwood's The Word! Y6 Perform one last time...

Year 6 told a story of intrigue and sabotage for their final performance to Oakwood today.

In a story within a story, as they prepared to put on their production of Grease, their plans were thrown into disarray by a rival local headteacher who hid the vital USB stick!

Without the photos of them when they were younger, how would they make their parents emotional at the show?

Well, as you might expect, all was well (and no-one from Fairisle was harmed during the making of this musical!)



(Here's the unrehearsed cool-down at the end of the afternoon performance! Nice moves, Mrs Hennen!)



And here's the CarPool Karaoke in Mrs McDonald's Picanto... (on the way to Fairisle!)



And the T-Birds workshop...!

Y4 Carousels

Over the past few weeks Year 4 have been working hard making their very own moving carousels. There have been many stages to complete before actually making the finished product. Carousels and the history of the fairground, then electricity and circuit building. A design and theme also needed to be considered, then the finished article needed to be evaluated. They have all done an amazing job!

Year 2 and 3LD Meet for the afternoon

3LD came to Year 2 this afternoon for some PDR.







Y1 Observational Drawing of the School

Year 1 spent this afternoon outside drawing the school. They had to count the windows and doors, look at the shape of the roof and think about the colours they needed. 


Year 6 Water Antics!

Water Antics on the field! Year 6 are cooling down after a long hard year. Spot the big boys rather wet!

Oakwood's Got Talent

Today we had our final show of Oakwood's Got Talent. The finalists in Key Satge 1 performed a variety of acts in front of an audience and panel of judges.

We saw dances, a comedy act, a magic show and singing. The judges were so impressed with all of the acts and had a very difficult decision to choose the winners.

Year 4 Working Hard On Their Carousels

Year 4 are doing a fantastic job at the moment working on their carousels. They are showing a very positive growth mindset as it is very tricky to complete the circuit and get their carousels to spin! Have a look at our 'work in progress' gallery and check back soon to see the finished carousels in all their glory!

Y1 Papier Mâché Rockets

Year one have created their own rockets. They started with a tube and then attached a card nose to one end. After that they used newspaper and papier mâché paste to cover the rocket. The rockets were left over the weekend to dry and the children were surprised to see that their rockets were then hard. Finally the rockets were painted and windows, doors and flames were added. Don't they look fantastic!
