Year 6 at Saints Study Support Centre

About 16 people from Year 6 have been spending our Tuesday evenings for the last ten weeks at the St Mary's Stadium in Southampton for Study Support.

Amongst other things we have been...


  • Improving their tables by using a torture square

  • Improving punctuation in English by writing poems

  • Using control technology to move lego robots

  • Using Powerpoint to learn about Southampton Football Club

  • making movies using stop motion technique - here's an example:

Last night, our parents and friends came along to see what we had been up to and be part of our Awards Ceremony!



Thanks to Chris and everyone at the stadium for a great time!

OJS - Podcasting to the World!

We're really excited that our very first podcast is available!

A podcast is a bit like a radio show that you can listen to on your computer or mp3 player. (It works especially well on iPods!) The BBC Podcast Page has a very easy explanation!

If you listen, you'll hear Holli and Cameron telling you all about the Myths which Year 5 have been reading.

It's not hard to do - follow the instructions below:

You can subscribe to the podcast and your computer will download each episode when it's available. You can do that in three ways...

If you have an iPod and iTunes, use this button...



Your podcast is now added, and iTunes will check for new episodes automatically.

If you just want to listen on your computer, use the RSS button...



...and then click on the episode you want to listen to. It will player in your computer's chosen media player.

If you have other podcasting software, copy the Myths and Legends feed URL...

http://www.oakwood-jun.southampton.sch.uk/school/podcasts/OakwoodJunio040308145251/rss.xml

...and paste it into the right place in the software. (That place will vary according to which program you have...)


Happy Listening!

(Let us know if you have any problems and we'll try to sort them out!)
