Our Science topic this half term is all about materials. This week we have been looking at the Morrisons building near school and thinking about why the different materials are suitable for the building.
The walls are made from brick because brick is strong and will hold the building up- Jack
The windows are made from glass because glass is transparent- Stephanie
The shutters are made from metal because metal is thick and hard wearing- Muhammad Zain
The bollards are made from concrete because concrete is thick and strong to keep the people and the building safe- Chloe
Can you remember the disadvantages of glass windows 2B?
Oxford Grove is a ‘Centre of Excellence’ school.
We recently maintained our status after assessors visited to have a look around. The assessors spoke to children and staff to find out about our inclusive school.
The report has now been shared with us all and we are so proud! The assessors think that our school is extremely well resourced with high quality teaching and learning materials so that pupils can access their learning.
We are proud to be part of the Oxford Grove family!
This week in our History lessons we have been learning all about Guy Fawkes and why we celebrate bonfire night.
On the 5th November 1605 Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the houses of parliament but he was caught out just in time! This event was known as the ‘Gunpowder plot’.
What did you do on bonfire night 2B?
At Oxford Grove we understand that everybody should be treated the same and get an equal chance. This week an assessor came into school to have a look at our amazing school and we maintained the Centre of Excellence Award for Inclusion.
