Rights Respecting School Week

Last week, we had a focus on our Rights Respecting School learning.

As a Rights Respecting School, the Unicef Convention on the Rights of the Child is threaded through all of our learning at Oakwood. We have whole school, class, playground and restaurant charters which remind us of our rights and how we can respect them. We learn about our rights in assemblies and in our lessons. Our whole school PSHE theme for this half term is 'This is Me', and we are learning about ourselves, and how our words and actions portray our character.

Last week, we learned more about the rights of children in other countries, particularly those children who, for one reason or another, are forced to leave their homes. We also took part in the Send My Friend to School Campaign. This year, the focus for this is 'Let's Unlock Education for Everyone'.

Our learning included reading books, completing research, drama and freeze frames - to name but a few. Every child has also written to our MP as part of the Send My Friend to School campaign, and we will be sending off our letters very soon.

Groundforce Move-a-Thon!

We had a fantastic day completing our non-stop 15 minutes of activity for our Groundforce Move-a-Thon. Thank you to everyone who managed to collect sponsorship money - all of this will go towards our plans for improving our school grounds!

A big thank you to TMC who supported us with the day and made it lots of fun!

For World Book Day Year 2 created "Reading Dens" to enjoy with their friends and soft toys.

After reading "The Book with No Pictures" the children then designed their own page in the style of the author.

Year 5 visit Jude's Ice Cream

Last week Year 5 were very lucky to visit Jude's Ice Cream factory in Twyford. We received a talk from Jude and her husband about how they started the business and then had a tour around the factory. We are now working hard on our Jude's challenge, creating a new flavour of ice cream. Jude will be visiting Oakwood in a couple of weeks to judge which idea she thinks is best. Watch out for more Jude's updates!
