The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations

 Today we have had a special assembly from Christine from St Luke’s Church. The assembly was all about Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday.

Over half term, the children have been working really hard on their competition entries. The competition was to create something to celebrate our Queen, and we had a huge range of entries, from models and sculptures, to cards and poems, to detailed pictures (both drawn and digital).

The winners (chosen by Christine) are as follows:

  • Vishnu (Reception 2)
  • Michal (Year 2B)
  •  (Year 4L)
  • Matthew (Year 5)

Each winner won a £10 Sainsbury’s giftcard, kindly donated by the St Luke’s Community Charity Shop (‘Sewing The Seed’ on Chorley Old Road).

However, we were slightly sad as this assembly was Christine’s last assembly with us, as she moves onto a new parish. We are very grateful to Christine for all the time she has spent with us Oxford Grove over the last three years and we wish her well for the future.

SMILEY REWARD: Science Magic Show

On Thursday 26th May, we enjoyed our Smiley Reward for Summer 1 – the Science Magic Show!

KS1 enjoyed a performance all about different forces, such as pushes and pulls, that you can find at the funfair.

KS2 enjoyed a performance all about superheroes and how their superpowers could be made real with the magic of science and technology.

Take a look at some of our photos:

Fundraising for Freya

At Oxford Grove, we are immensely proud of all our children with their wide range of talents, interests and abilities.

Picture215Outside of school, Freya in Year 4S takes part in a cheerleading club run by Bolton Gymnastics Club. Her team have been incredibly successful, winning the UK National Cheerleading Championships to become National Champions. They now have the unique opportunity to travel to Slovenia to take part in the European Cheerleading Championship!

As Freya’s team is now fundraising to raise money in order to take them to Slovenia, our School Council decided to hold a non-uniform day on Friday 13th May.

We raised £330 altogether, and the cheque was presented to Freya’s mum in assembly this morning. The cheque will be passed on to Bolton Gymnastics Club to help towards the costs of cheerleading uniforms and travel to the international competition.
