This morning, we have held our new parents intake meeting for the new Nursery and Reception classes.
Mrs Ainscough (Foundation Stage lead) and other members of staff talked about what our school is like, and parents of children currently in Reception discussed their experiences of their children starting at our school.
Our Parent Area on the school blog is updated with articles from CEOP on a regular basis, as well as containing links to websites and resources you can use to support yourself and your child in a variety of areas, based around some of the difficulties of modern parenting.
The Parent Area has also been recently updated to show categories for all of our resources, making it even easier to find support for different topics.
If you need a reminder of the username and password, please ask at the School Office.

In our assembly this afternoon, we have been giving out lots of prizes! The winners of Mrs Calland’s bookmark competition were announced – well done to all those who won!
Also, some teachers in school have been holding blogging competitions within their classes. Well done to all those children who won with their comments! Other classes will be taking part in class blogging competitions next half term.
Also, Miss Harvey is holding a competition for the best child bloggers over the Easter holidays! This is in addition to our current adult blogging competition which runs until July.
Get blogging, everybody!

Over the last two days, all of our classes have enjoyed spending time with Farmer David and the animals at the farm! Every child who filled the back of their second smiley card was given this opportunity as a behaviour reward.
Please visit our class blog pages to see information and pictures.

Every year in the Autumn term, our School Council chooses charities to support. These charities are chosen by the children, who have to give presentations to explain why their chosen charity should be supported. The Council then decide from this selection which charities they would like to support for the coming year.
As one of their charities, last year’s School Council chose the Christie, the leading cancer hospital in Manchester. Last year we took part in a Spellathon and non-uniform days to raise money.
This week, Howard from the Christie came into school so we could present the money we have raised, which is a total of £1,515. He told Key Stage 2 all about the Christie’s current work on proton beam therapy, which is what the money we have raised will be going towards.
Thank you so much to everybody who supported our fundraising efforts last year, and who continue to support us this year. Well done, Oxford Grove!
