Next week is Road Safety Week! Help us to keep the roads a safe place for us to be!
Thank you from Oxford Grove School Council
This week, Oxford Grove choir took part in a fabulous music festival at Bridgewater Hall! They performed a medley of songs in front of a large audience and their parents. Everyone at Oxford Grove is extremely proud of everyone involved and it was a fantastic evening! Well done Oxford Grove for representing the school brilliantly – you were amazing + a huge thank you to all the parents for your support!
Well we have finally come to the end of our Readathon!
We have all been very busy across school to read lots of books to raise money for the Read for Good charity.
As a school we raised a HUGE £740 for the Read for Good charity and all of this money will go on buying clean books for the poorly children in hospital.
We had a winner from each class:
Inayah and Evie from Year 1
Zarmin and Sumayah Year 2
Amelia and Zack Year 3
Alena and Bobby Year 4
Karima and Amy Year 5
Saarah Year 6
A HUGE well done to all these children who read the most books in your class. You have won a book to take home 🙂
The next winner was to a child who raised the most money in the whole school!
Well done to Isabella in Year 2! You raised a HUGE £90!
You have won a unicorn book, top trumps and a £10 book token to buy yourself another book!
Well done to everyone who took part and a very big thank you to you all and family and friends who helped to raise the money!
We have had a fabulous morning showing all our amazing work in reading!
Over 90 parents and carers attended our ‘How We Teach Reading’ workshop this morning. Thank you so much to all who could attend, and thank you for your overwhelmingly positive feedback.
Some comments from our parents and carers:
“I think it was brilliant being able to see what my child is learning and understanding what she’s doing.”
“It was very useful and I learnt new ways of looking into a story.”
“Everything went well because I have seen that the teachers are very dedicated in their jobs and help children understand when they are struggling.”
“The event was very informative. Very impressive teaching and I can see that everyone (the kids) is very attentive and could tell they enjoy learning. (Well done Oxford Grove.)”
“It gives you an idea how your child performs in the class and their learning skills.”
“Everything was perfect. Very nice event which explains a lot to parents.”
“It was nice to see my daughter in a well behaved learning environment. I was very impressed with the paired work.”
Thank you to the parents who took part in our transition survey! Here are the results:
We know that transition can be daunting for some children, so we are continuing to work hard to ensure all children feel confident and happy about their new classes for next year.
If you would like to make any further comments about transition within school, please speak to the School Office or leave a comment on this post.
Following parent feedback to our road safety survey, we are aiming to improve our safety outside school at the beginning and end of the school day. To help with this we are holding a poster competition to design safety posters to be put up at the front of school around our drop-off zone.
We hope to achieve two things:
1. All drivers must not park in places that may endanger us!
2. All drivers drive as carefully as they can to ensure our safety.
We appreciate that the vast majority of parents do this already but unfortunately a small minority do not.
We hope that putting up poster reminders will lead to improvements to both driving and parking and help prevent a catastrophic accident.
All pupils are welcome to enter this competition and design a poster which will get our important message across the school community.
THERE WILL BE PRIZES!!
If your child wishes to enter, these are the competition rules:
1. Please use a piece of A4 paper.
2. You may use paint, coloured pencils or felt tip pens.
3. Make your design simple but effective with eye-catching, vibrant colours and give it sharp and distinctive lettering.
4. Include a safety strapline ~ there are some suggestions here that you can use:
Please drive like there’s a baby on board! Please drive like your gran’s in the car!
Please drive like every child is yours! Please drive like you’re taking your test!
Please park responsibly. Please drive with care.
Please slow down! Please do not park on the zig-zag lines!
Please respect our school. Caution! Children!
Please THINK before you park. Stopping here puts a child in danger.
Thank you for not parking here.
5. Remember to add your name and your class on your design.
6. All entries must be in school by Friday 14th June.
We look forward to seeing your entries. Good luck!
