Traffic Survey 2019

Dear Parents and Carers

In our School Council meetings this year the issue of children’s safety on the roads outside of school at the beginning and end of the school day has been brought up a number of times by children right across the school.

Sadly there have been a number of incidents of parents parking inappropriately as well as setting off without enough care and attention when we are all trying to get into or out of school safely.

We know that the vast majority of you park and drive with great care and thought for our safety but this is not the case with everybody and we as a school council are convinced this is putting us at risk of injury or even worse. We would like to change this situation before a disaster happens.

As a result of our discussions and conversations with Miss Harvey we have developed some ideas to try to help improve the situation and we would like to test which of them you would support should they be implemented.

We should be most grateful if you would complete the questionnaire below. We will use your responses to make a plan of action which we will share with you before implementing from the start of the summer term.

With our thanks

Oxford Grove School Council

Online Safety Competition Winner

Last month, many of our children entered the Bolton Schools ICT Online Safety Competition. 

Schools from all over Bolton entered, but there could only be three winners – and Oxford Grove was one of them!

Well done to Saarah in Year 6 for her amazing online safety story! Her class will be enjoying a STEM engineering workshop with Mrs Temel next half term.

Oxford Grove’s parents do Maths!

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.

World Book Day

Last week we had lots of fun dressing up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day and working with some brilliant and authors and poets during the week. Foundation Stage worked with Lynne Chapman, KS1 worked with Liz Million and KS2 worked with Matt Goodfellow.

Mrs Calland also took the lucky book review competition winners to Bolton Library for some special World Book Day activities. The children were able to listen to different librarians tell lots of stories and even took part in a catwalk to show off their outfits!

Fun Food Chef

Today, the winners of our DT competition had their prize of an afternoon with the Fun Food Chef.

To win the competition, the children had to design and make a model of their house to display within school. The 15 winners were able to bring a family member in to participate in the Fun Food Chef workshop with them.

They all had a great time! Thank you to all the families who supported their children in the competition over half term, and especially to those family members who accompanied their children at the workshop this afternoon.

Times Tables Competition Winners

We are so proud of all of our amazing Times Tables winners!

Well done to everybody who worked so hard on learning and improving their times tables facts to enter this competition.

Keep practising hard – you’re always a winner if you know your times tables by heart!

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!
