Space 4 Schools

Today, Key Stage 2 have enjoyed working with Steve from Space 4 Schools, who has taught us all about launching rockets. His aim is to make space tourism (holidays in space) a reality!

Years 3-6 had an assembly, where we learned all about the first animals and people in space, and how rockets are launched.

In the afternoon, all of Key Stage 2 gathered to watch a one metre rocket (powered by real rocket fuel) launch above our school. Watch the video below to see the launch!

Music Assembly

Today, we held our annual Music Assembly, where our parents got the opportunity to see the Oxford Grove Choir singing their music festival songs and the Year 5 parents got to see what they have been learning in their music instrument lessons this year.

Mr Bamford was so impressed with the Year 5 children this year and all their hard work learning brass instruments and the djembe drums!

After the assembly, the children got to spend some time with their parents. Thank you so much to everybody who could make it to watch the children.

Pop Project

Oxford Grove really enjoyed the Pop Project!

To go to the Pop Project, the children must fill the front half of their second smiley card. Well done to everybody – you have worked hard for this reward!

Take a look at our video and have a look at some of the fun we’ve had this afternoon.
