This afternoon, we had a special visitor from our local library. She read us some stories using fantastic expression ! We found out about all the different kind of books we could access at the library 🙂 Have you ever been to a library?
This morning we had a fantastic Maths morning and parents were invited into our school to see how we learn maths and to help them support their children at home. Mrs Day firstly met with all the parents to model how to use our brilliant computing resources that they can access from home. Parents were then able to visit their children’s classes and were given an insight on how they can further support their children at home.
It was a fantastic event and lots of adults across the whole school attended.
Thank you to everyone for their support.

Today, in our assembly,we were given some important messages…
1. Some children within the school were awarded their gold coins for the ‘Good Friend’ award.These children have been given the seat covers constantly within their classroom to show they have been good friends , because of this, they have now earned their gold coin. This gold coin has amazing powers, you can swap it for a prize of your choice from the Argos catalogue. Children across the school are showing what a good friend they are and are being spotted by teachers. Here are another two children who have won this award:
2. Mrs Calland has launched her reading competition. Can you fill in a high quality reading book review within your record to be in with a chance to visit Bolton Libary on World Book Day?
3. Mrs Thompson has launched her Computing competition . Can you create a way to share information about e-safety ? You could design a game, rap, poster anything . The winner will be given a chance to take their class on a computing trip! Oxford Grove have won this before!
lots of exciting things going on and more information about this will be in our newsletter so do not worry if your confused or missed anything. The newsletter will tell you everything you need to know 🙂
Today Miss Nelson visited our school . We had a special assembly about football against homophobia- which means using the word gay to mean something bad. We talked about how some footballers experienced this type of bullying from the crowd. We learnt about how they came together and set up a campaign to put a stop to this , they became role models and wore t-shirts to support this.
Year 5 and 6 then took part in workshops to learn more about this and why it was important.
What did you learn today?
On Wednesday we had a whole school assembly to celebrate Harvest. Mrs Bain told us why Harvest was important to Christians and how they celebrated it.
How do churches celebrate Harvest today?
Today, most U.K. churches have a Harvest Thanksgiving service. The church building may be decorated with a display of flowers and food, perhaps including a large loaf in the shape of a wheat sheaf. Often people bring more gifts of food to add to the display during the church service.Afterwards, the food will be sold to raise money for charity, or given directly to those in need. At harvest-time, the sharing of food helps Christians to remember that all good gifts come from God.
Lots of children donated food which was then given to people who were in need 🙂 Thank you to all the help and support from parents to help us celebrate this festival!
On Monday our School Sports Crew Leaders presented a ‘ Healthy Living’ assembly to Year 1-6. They explained why it was important to stay fit and healthy and ways they could achieve this. They asked all the children to take part in a quiz to find out what they knew about fitness and keeping healthy already. They explained about how keeping fit can help you release stress and that being active is great for your physical health and fitness too! Evidence shows that it can also improve your mental wellbeing. What you do with your body can have a powerful effect on your mental wellbeing.
What did you learn from this assembly ?
Did you win a gold box prize for a correct answer?
What are you going to now change to help you keep even fitter?
Miss Stockton and the School Sports Crew.
This week our School Sports Crew had their first meeting of the year.
They discussed what clubs and competitions we needed to put in place this year based on feedback from children across the school. We had lots of exciting ideas!
They have now set up their own rota to support at playtimes with playing games fairly and correctly.
The Sports Crew are also trained to help children across the school keep healthy and fit during their playtimes.
