OSA Summer Fete!

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who planned, prepared, helped, came along, spent money, had a burger or an ice cream, played a game, had a flutter on a raffle, picked a tombola ticket, sang, danced, won a coconut, golfed, kicked a goal, nerfed a target, had their nails or face painted, designed a mask, had a cuppa and a cake, climbed or jumped over obstacles, or, in Ms Patchett's case, got gunged!

The OSA Summer Fete was a massive success and a lovely community event - a wonderful day for the Oakwood Family!

Thank you!

City Athletics Championships

Team Oakwood went to the Outdoor Sports Centre on Tuesday to take part in the annual City Athletics Championships. 20 schools competed in the all day event, with some of the best athletes in the City competing.

Team Oakwood performed well and picked up some excellent results. The boys team picked up 15 points -enough for 9th place. Whilst the girls team earned 30 points (just 2 points shy of coming 2nd) for 4th place.

A combined Team Oakwood 45 points was enough for 6th place! Another solid performance at the City Athletics against some much bigger Southampton schools.

Well done to all our competitors but special mentions to our new City Champions  - Edward, Sunny-Rose and Praise.

Willow Class Testwood Lakes Trip

Willow class visited Testwood Lakes Today. They had a great time learning about different animals and plants. They even had a go at pond dipping. They won a Silver award for the Waste Free Lunch Competition. They only had 9.4g of waste per person. The children represented Oakwood very well and the staff at Testwood said they were amazing!






Astrodome Visit at Oakwood!

Today Year 5 and Year 6 were lucky enough to have an astrodome experience in our hall, from The University of Southampton. Each class had a 45 minute show and learnt lots about our solar system.

Thanks again to the university for providing us with the excellent opportunity.
