Year R Monkey Milkshakes

We have come to the end of our jungle topic and decided to venture into the kitchen for the first time this year.

We made some delicious monkey milkshakes and all had a go at chopping and mixing. We thought they were delicious.

School Football Team Match Night 5

Team Oakwood had two games today. The first was against Holy Family and Oakwood started the game very well. Oakwood didn't seem to have much luck in the first half, hitting the post three times and have  shot cleared off the line before Holy Family had even had a shot! However, from their only two shots, Holy Family ended the first half 2-0 up! The team never gave up hope and continued to give their all, finally getting a goal with 5 minutes left of the game. A second goal quickly followed and only the final whistle stopped Oakwood from a dramatic turn around as they were on top.

Well done Goal scorers Sonny and Leo.

After a game break, the second game saw Oakwood take on Shirley Junior School. Oakwood played well and despite some resolute defending by the Shirley team, took the lead early in the second half  -Will finding the back of the net. Sonny quickly made it 2-0 and come the final whistle Oakwood were celebrating a well deserved victory.

Well done to our player of the day, Praise.

Fun at the Factory!

Last week Year 5 have been lucky enough to visit Jude's ice cream factory, in Twyford (Winchester) and meet Jude herself and her husband, Theo, who created the business.They learnt about how the business was created; how ice cream is made; had a tour of the factory and they even got to sample some freshly made ice cream, YUMMY!

This visit was to kick start their latest topic 'Jude's Challenge', which they will be working on for the next 4 weeks. Back at school we have created business groups. Their challenge is to design a new flavour of ice cream and present their product, alongside a charity they would donate their profits to (if their team won) to Jude at the end of the project.

We had a great time meeting the Jude's team and are excited to continue designing our products!

City Cup Semi-Final

The School Football Team took on Springhill in the Semi-Final of the City Cup yesterday, the 7th consecutive season Oakwood have reached this stage of the competition!

Springhill started quickly and took a 0-2 lead before the game had really got going. It stayed this way until half time. After the restart, Oakwood exploded into life - scoring after only 30 seconds. The team started to play some excellent football but couldn't find an equalising goal. With Oakwood pushing forward in the final minutes, Springhill managed to scramble two more goals - scoring with the last kick of the game.

The 1-4 score didn't really reflect the quality of the game and but for Oakwood 'Keeper, and Man of the Match, Bradley, it could have been a very different score.

Oakwood goalscorer - Caitlin (1)

Y6 and the 'Scottish play'

Y6 have been having fun over the last few weeks exploring some of the most famous works of William Shakespeare. Having already studied the comedy, Twelfth Night, they have begun to look into the 'Scottish Play', Macbeth..Shhhhhh.

What better way to begin than to look at the iconic Witches scene. Here is some pictures of their efforts!
