After School Club 6C

Every Monday of this term, 6C have been taking part in rounder’s club after school.

It’s safe to say there are a lot of talented rounder’s players in this class.

Lots of rounder’s have been scored and the club has been played in high spirits with smiles on the children’s faces.

This will be one of 6C’s last after school clubs at Oxford Grove I hope you enjoyed it.

Football After School Club Year 2B

This term 2B have been showing off their silky skills, perfect passing and sizzling shooting after school every Wednesday.

The children have played fun games with a football at their feet as well as taking part in mini tournaments at the end of each lesson to help gain valuable knowledge of working as a team and respecting your opponents.  Each week children have the chance to win the spectacular FUNDA gold medal which they get to wear and show off the following day.

Well done Year 2.

What has been your favourite part of the After school club?

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 sponsor 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!

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?
