Oakwood's Learning! (29th June-3rd July)


It's been another fantastic week full of fun and hard work from Team Oakwood! Take a look at what's been going on.

Mrs Whitmarsh's Caterpillar Diaries - Part 5

There has been movement!

Firstly, as the chrysalides have now hardened, we have moved them, as still attached to the pot lid, into the butterfly habitat (which is a small net container until they are released into the wild).

The strangest thing was that, as they were being moved, two of them started wriggling and bouncing around like they were dancing! I never realised that the changing caterpillars would be so active while they are transforming!

Mrs Whitmarsh's Caterpillar Diaries - Part 4!

And already, after just a few hours, each caterpillar has started to shed its exoskeleton and begun to form a chrysalis! What amazingly clever creatures!

Mrs Whitmarsh's Caterpillar Diaries - Part 3!

Well, things are progressing nicely, and as I suspected, the caterpillars are getting ready to change into their chrysalides.

They are now hanging upside down and forming a 'j' shape, ready to create each chrysalis that will help them transform into a butterfly:

Team Oakwood-Keep Going with Style!

Once again Team Oakwood have impressed everyone with their great learning. As the time that we haven't spent altogether as a school gets longer, these photos and movies clips have become an even more important tool in uniting us all. It is so lovely to see all the wonderful things you have been doing and all the smiles on your faces. A BIG thank you from everyone at the school for all your hard work and once again we are VERY proud of you all. Enjoy:-

Lily's Litter-Picking!

Lily in Year 2 has noticed that lots of rubbish has been building up in the local area recently. She has learned in school about the importance of looking after the environment, and she wanted to do something to help. So, she's been out with her litter picker and collected two whole bags of rubbish! Well done Lily, and remember everyone, put your rubbish in a bin or take it home with you.

Mrs Whitmarsh's Caterpillar Diaries - part 2!

Well, I never realised how quickly caterpillars grew!

When they arrived, they were like little dots in their home, and ever since they seem to have been doubling in size every day!

On Wednesday they looked like this:


And then this morning, they looked like this - it's hard to see from the photo, but they are developing a furry, cotton wool-like material around them...


...so I think they must be getting near the stage where they are ready to form a chrysalis!

There's a great video here that shows different types of caterpillar turning into butterflies. There is no narration so you could become the next David Attenborough and use it to write your own butterfly life-cycle voice-over!

I'll update you next week on the next set of changes!

Thank You NHS and Key Workers

Mrs Whitmarsh's Caterpillar Diaries!

I hope you all had a good weekend and are safely enjoying the lovely sunny weather.

I have some exciting visitors in my house at the moment....5 little caterpillars!


They arrived last week and were smaller than the diameter of a 5p piece. However, they are growing fast and have already doubled in size!

We are observing them very carefully and using them to learn all about how butterflies are formed. I know already that the species of butterfly that my caterpillars will turn into is called a 'Painted Lady'.

I will be updating the blog regularly with their progress and with facts that I am finding out along the way.

In the meantime, what facts can you find out about caterpillars and butterflies? You might want to find out how many different species of butterfly live in the UK? Which is the most common species? Which is the rarest? Are any endangered?

If you're feeling arty, can you find a picture of a highly patterned caterpillar and create an observational drawing?

I'll update you in a few days with their progress!

A baking challenge from Mrs Mahoney



This is for a message for all our Oakwood Primary children and families.

I love baking with my children, Sophie (9) and Edward (6)!
Edward and I would love you to try baking a carrot cake like we did. We have baked this recipe quite a few times as it always comes out well and we think it is delicious. My mum, who is an amazing cook, uses this recipe now and she has tried many carrot cake recipes over the years!






Baking is a great activity for all the family. As well as enjoyment, there are extra learning opportunities for children in the form of reading, writing, maths and science!

In addition to using the measuring scales to measure the ingredients, here are some of the maths questions I asked Edward as he was baking:
• How many grams are there in 1kg?
• 100g add 150g
• Double 250g
• What fraction of the 500g bag did we use?
• What is 4 tablespoons of butter in grams? 14.3g x 4?


Don’t worry of you do not have the exact ingredients. We used:
• All white self-raising flour as we didn’t have wholemeal.
• 1 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp cinnamon instead of 2 tsp mixed spice (or you could leave out the spice)
• Golden caster sugar instead of icing sugar
We used an electric mixer to make the icing topping but you could also whisk it by hand.
The carrot cake also works well in a round cake tin!

We hope you enjoy the egg yolk in oil video – we thought it was very interesting!
Also, Edward usually says no to cracking the eggs but agreed to do it if I filmed him! He did really well!

Good luck with your baking! Have fun!

Charity Fundraising by Pupils of Oakwood.

We all know what AMAZING and thoughtful children we have at Oakwood and in the past couple of days we have received a couple of emails which illustrate just this.

Incredibly, just like Captain Tom Moore, two Oakwood pupils have gone that extra mile during lock down and have been doing some fundraising.

A very proud sister in 5FL let us know about her very special young brother, Callum in Year 1, who has just finished running a staggering 27 miles for charity-that is a whole marathon! Callum started on the 11th May and finished on the 31st May. He raised a stupendous £686 for Cancer research.  Unbelievably,  he is not stopping there but is going to carry on till the end of July when he hopes he will have run a whooping 100 miles. A-MAZ-ING Callum!



But that is not all. 

For another incredible pupil Lilia in Year 4 has also been fundraising for a very important cause. Dreamflight is a UK charity that changes the young lives of children with a serious illness or disability by taking them on the holiday of a lifetime to Florida. Lilia raised over £530 for the charity- which would pay for a whole day on Dreamflight. She did this by being incredibly selfless and getting sponsored for cutting lots of her hair off. Afterwards she donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children who, for different reasons, have lost their hair. Dreamflight were incredibly impressed and emailed the school to let us know.



Well done! 


Oakwood is very proud of you.

Team Oakwood-Achieving Excellence (even though we are still not altogether!)




Rainy Poem!

Hi everyone!

I'm sat here at my computer, looking out of the window at the torrential rain and hearing the dripping, pitter-patter, and it got me thinking of rainy day poems!

I had a search for some new ones and I particularly like this one by Annette Wynn, called Daisies Standing in the Rain, because it suits the summer rain and reminds me that there is always something positive to look forwards to!

Daisies standing in the rain,
Hold their heads together,
But they never once complain
Of the drenching weather.

Daisies know the sun will dry
All their dripping laces;
They're far too wise to frown and sigh
And spoil their dainty faces.

Can any of you write your own rainy day poems? If you do, send them to me because I'd love to read them!

Achieving Excellence Together at Home.

Well it's been almost a week since we have all been together at school but still the Oakwood School community continues to show what an AMAZING team they are. Even though many of us have switched our place of work and learning temporarily to our homes, this has not stopped everyone achieving excellence. We have been overwhelmed with how positive and enthusiastic you have all been and it has been lovely hearing about all the different types of learning you have been doing. From building shelters, playing maths games, writing stories, drawing beautiful pictures, creating thought provoking songs, daily P.E sessions-you have shown what incredible young people you all are.

Here are a few photos and videos that you have sent to show us what you have been up to. The staff at Oakwood are very proud of you all. Please keep sending in examples of what you are doing-we hope this will be the first blog of many while we are working at home.



And a little something extra from Donny in Year 3 sharing his brilliant home learning project.

Welsh National Opera Workshop

On Monday afternoon we were visited by members of the Welsh National Opera to lead a workshop for those of us who are lucky enough to be watching them perform at the Mayflower Theatre next week.

We learned all about the skills needed to be a good opera singer and the orchestra that will be performing with them. We were then taught a song from Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' that we will be singing alongside the Welsh National Opera and other schools next week. Take a look at some of our practice:-

Y6 'come Dine with Me' challenge

Last week, Y6 were set the challenge of researching, cooking, presenting (and eating) a 3 course meal in small groups.

Each course had to be based on a particular main ingredient (starter - peppers, main - salmon and dessert - pineapple) and should be a meal enough for two. The groups divided in to pairs and worked together to produce some excellent cooking. They then tested and scored each of the course their group had cooked.

We had a wonderful range of culinary delights including: Stuffed peppers, Asian steamed salmon, salmon pasta, pan fried salmon with lemon and rosemary drizzle, pineapple cheesecake and pineapple upside down cake.

Whilst not cooking, children learned about the journey that food goes on as it travels from 'farm to fork' and produced a recipe book of Y6 family favourites which are now on display in the library.

Year 3 Henry Moore Inspired family sculptures.

Year 3 have just finished their Henry Moore inspired family sculptures. Not an easy task! Not only did they have to use all their learned clay techniques-like joining-but had to use what they learned at the beginning of this learning journey about correct body proportions. They worked together in pairs to produce a grouped family sculpture. Well done Year 3.


Y1 Carnival of the Animals

Year 1's music of the week was ' Carnival of the animals'. We listened to the music discussed the tempo and pitch for each section of the piece of music. We then discussed what the animals might be doing? How they might be doing it? what their bodies look like? This links to our science work as well all about animals.

Year 3 write letters in French for travelling journal.

Year 3 were  recently lucky enough to come into the possession of a young French Canadian's travelling journal. The young student had the idea of starting her journal and then passing it on and seeing how far it could travel. We had fun reading all the letters in French and then composing our own letters to be included in the journal. We then passed the journal on so it could continue its journey.

A busy start to the term in Year 3


Y6 and the Ancient Greeks

This half term, Y6 are learning about Ancient Greece.
They have already looked at where the Greeks fall on their History timeline and explored the roles of women during the this time (nearly 3500 years ago). But yesterday, the children investigated the clothing that would have been worn and modelled it in a portrait competition. Wealthy families during the Greek era celebrated and showed off their wealth by commissioning pieces of artwork to adorn their homes.
Have a look at the pictures below to see how they got on...

Lordswood Explorers Part 1

3LM had a fabulous local walk today, despite the awful weather.😱

Our Geographers were in small groups, observing and recording man-made and natural features of our local area. We also had a particular focus on identifying things that definitely should not be there. 

The children were impeccably behaved, energetic and very enthusiastic. They were also a little damp! But this did not stop them!

They were genuinely shocked at how much litter was around, ruining the aesthetics of the local environment and causing possible danger to animals and humans alike.

We talked about how we could encourage the local community or local council to help reduce rubbish and repair overgrown areas such as Goldcrest pond to encourage wildlife. We also discussed how positive intervention could help globally by recycling the plastic and cans we saw.

At a later date, children will be producing a short persuasive and emotive speech about the litter issue (and other issues) so watch this space!

Year 5 have a great start to 2020 with a parachute Eggsperiment!

What a great start to 2020 Year 5 have had. Their scientific morning involved learning about air resistance and gravity whilst designing and making a parachute for an egg. Have a look at how they got on.
