As a whole school, Oxford Grove is running our very own Spellathon!

Today, in your literacy groups, you were given your spellings to learn for your Spellathon! It is your job to ask your friends, family and anyone you know if they would sponser you for every spelling you get correct!

Oxford Grove are raising money for: The World Wildlife Fund and also Cancer Research UK as well as other Bolton based charities!

I am looking forward to seeing lots of children getting full marks after learning all their spellings at home…

Eco Committee – Its good to be green!

Image result for eco committee


In spring term 2, the eco committee will be joining together once again to take care of our school and the environment!

It is important to make sure we do not waste; paper, water or electricity. We must look after our school and also look after the wildlife around our school.


Jayden from Year 5B wanted to share a rap that he found in one of his poetry books! Good find, Jayden!


Listen to me children. Hear what I say.

We’ve got to start recycling. Its the only way,

to save this planet for future generations –

The name of the game is reclamation.

You’ve got to start recycling. You know it makes sense!

You’ve got to start recycling. Stop sitting on the fence.

No more messing. No more claptrap.

Get yourself doing the recycling rap!


If you think you could make a difference and want to help, you can apply to join the eco committee. Get your applications from Miss Brewer before Monday 12th February 2018!

Celebration assembly!

Little Princess Trust

This weekend, one of our Year 5 children donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust. The Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young adults up to the age of 24, who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.

We couldn’t be more proud! What an achievement!

Football Vs Homophobia ..

Football for everyone

Today, Key Stage 2 experienced an assembly about Homophobia and how this is linked to football. This assembly used football as a means to communicate messages of inclusion to our children. Upper Key Stage 2 then took part in some workshops.

What did you learn from this assembly ? What did you enjoy the most?

Our Oxford Grove choir wowed the audience with beautiful singing of a range of Christmas songs and carols and everyone was swaying along with a smile on their face. This is what Christmas is all about!
