Aldi Kit for Schools competition

Thank you so much to all of the children, staff and families that have contributed stickers to our Aldi Kit for Schools poster.

We have collected over 300 stickers to fill our poster, which is absolutely amazing! The School Sports Crew have created a way that we will create a lasting healthy legacy at Oxford Grove, but we will have to wait and see if we are one of the fortunate schools to be chosen to win £20,000!

Please keep your fingers crossed for us and once again thank you so much!

Harvest thanks

Thank you again to all our amazing families who contributed to our Harvest collection this year. We have received a letter of thanks from the Destitution Project in Bolton, who received our Harvest gifts.

Dear Miss Harvey, staff and children,

Thank you so much for the wonderful Harvest collection you made for Destitution Project.

Our shelves were bare last month and we were having to buy in some of our essentials which meant money could not be spent elsewhere helping our service users. However, the shelves are now almost full again, thanks to you and generosity of your parents. Now, if someone doesn’t have a coat for winter, we can scour the charity shops or a cheap shop in town to get them something warm and dry without having to think of spending that money on food.

We really are very grateful. Thank you!

Best wishes,

Kath Webster (Treasurer, Destitution project)

Our school’s local PCSO.

Today PCSO Jonny visited our school to talk to us about being safe during the Bonfire period. He talked us about rules we need to follow and how we should behave to ensure our safety.

He also spoke to us about how we should keep safe online.

What did you learn from this assembly.

Smiley Reward – Teach Rex

The whole school has had an amazing time at the smiley reward today! We were so lucky to spend time with Jam the dinosaur, and learn lots about fossils and Science. We also worked in teams to create green screen videos of us with dinosaurs!

Well done to all the children who filled the front of their smiley card to attend!

Harvest at Oxford Grove

Today, we had a whole school assembly to celebrate Harvest. Mrs Bain explained that Harvest is the celebration of food grown from the land. We talked about why it is important and how we celebrate it.

Mrs Bain demonstrated making a pizza with the children and explored where all the different ingredients came from. We discovered that some foods travel thousands of miles to get to the UK.

Nowadays, most churches have a Harvest Thanksgiving service. They celebrate this day by singing, praying and decorating their churches with baskets of fruit and food. Harvest Festival reminds Christians of all the good things God gives them. This makes them want to share with others who are not so fortunate. In schools and in Churches, people bring food from home to a Harvest Festival Service. a

As a school, we have collected different foods to share with people who may need some help. We would like to say a massive thank you to all who have donated to our Harvest at Oxford Grove. The food will be distributed to those in need.

Once again, thank you for all the help and support from parents.
