Y6 Prom

It's that time of year again!

Everyone in Year 6 has come back to school one last time to say goodbye and good luck to their friends. (And maybe shed a tear or two!)

We will be adding to the Year 6 Prom photo album during the evening.

Year 6 Leavers' Service

A really emotional moment as Year R children present their specially made candle holders to Year 6.

Year 6 reprised "When I Grow Up" and made Mr Taylor cry again!

Thank you to Mrs Larder for your beautiful words blessing the candles.

We will miss you Year 6 - one more day!

Year 6 Leavers' Production

Our Year 6 Pupils say their first goodbye to Oakwood, remembering and celebrating some of their favourite events.

A brilliant production, with emotional songs ("When I Grow Up" made Mr Taylor cry!) and excellent acting!

Thank you for entertaining us, and a really big Thank You to all the ex "Mr Taylors" who turned up to reprise their role from previous years! (That made the real Mr Taylor cry as well!)

KS1 Oakwood's Got Talent

Last week saw the return of the KS1 Oakwood's Got Talent Final!

The finalists in Key Stage 1 performed a variety of acts in front of an audience and panel of judges.

Congratulations to all of the acts who made it to the final.

What a great show it was!

Year 1 Chemistry Day

Year 1 had so much fun trying to make some elephant's toothpaste using dry yeast and hydrogen peroxide. The children predicted what they thought would happen when everything had been mixed together.

Year 1 Space Home Learning

Year 1 welcomed Year 4 to class to look at the incredible Home Learning projects they had produced. The children had made some superb robots; some had specific functions like a Cooking bot or had special features such as flashing lights. Amazing rockets of all shapes and sizes were also on display in the Home Learning gallery. Great job Year 1.

Year 3 Morph Inspired Animations

Science in Year R

Last week Year R had a very sciency week.

We learned about how water can change things, using skittles and felt tip pens to see how the colours change and mix.

We then used our detective skills to go under the sea and work out which colour scales would be best for the rainbow fish to have deep in the ocean, as well as investigating prisms and coloured plastic to see what happens when the light shined through them.

Outside we made predictions about capacity and recorded our results and worked out what happened when we added pressure to the water inside the containers. We may have got ourselves a little bit wet in the process!

Finally, we had a visitor at the end of our week to kick off our final 'Watery World' topic. We learned about the turtles and how to feed them. The We loved observing them throughout the day.

Y2 have been very creative working with willow. Everyone made a petal which was then put together to create a larger class flower.

Great team work showing how everyone can contribute to the bigger picture making it something beautiful.

Transfer Day for 3LM

I am so excited to be back full time with my own class. I will miss teaching every class in the school,  but you can't beat having your own class.

This is how the new 3LM (for 2018-2019) spent their arty transfer day. Making 'Lolly Dollies' to tell their worries, hopes and dreams to; creating Positive Pants to remind us to be positive - You can do it! - These have gone home today.

We also created wonderful self-portraits in the style of Romero Britto - a Neo Pop Brazilian artist who uses vivid colour to portray, hopes, dreams and happiness.

Here is a snap shot of those that were completed.

I can't wait to see what the class and I can achieve next academic year!
