Y6 Prom

A fuller write-up coming, but here are the photos!

We promised, you delivered...Ms Dowle gets gunged!

Year 3 and 4 were challenged to get 40 logs in the final few weeks of term with the promise of gunging Ms Dowle if they were successful. Well done Year 3 and 4 you smashed the target and achieved over 50 logs! Unfortunately for Ms Dowle this meant being covered with a rather smelly gunge...

French Day

On Friday 6th July, most of Oakwood took part in a French Day - to aid their understanding of different cultures and enjoy the opportunity to speak in French.

Year R enjoyed the story of La chenille qui fait des trous - The Hungry Caterpillar, learned to count to 10 and did some French Flag coloured butterflies. Well done Year R!

Year 1 learned the vocabulary for different fruits and did their own art in the style of Henri Matisse. Fantastic art, I'm sure you'll agree!

Year 2 researched  the Tour Eiffel and tried building them from art straws and modelling clay. They said it was très difficile!

Years 3 and 4 were given the opportunity to have le petit déjeuner - croissants, pain au chocolat et jus d'orange and Year 4 took part in some role play.

Year 3 were taking the parts of both waiter and customer and they also learned how to play pétanque in their PE lesson.Great fun!

Year 5 watched a video on how to make the perfect croque monsieur and then made their own toasted versions. They also researched Bastille Day and created art in the style of Cezanne. A full on french filled day. Well done Year 5!

Year 6 were busy rehearsing their end of year production, but they managed squeeze in a little role play a la café. Well done to Miss Patchet in her sparkly - J'adore Dior!

Year 3 Photo Frames

After investigating the stability of different materials and shapes, a 'build your own bridge' challenge to support a given weight, Year 3 made and decorated their own Hugo Cabret inspired photo frames. All frames stand up securely and the ingenious inclusion of a bullclip means that it fits its design purpose of ensuring different photos can be displayed when required. Take a look at the finished frames:-
