‘How We Teach Reading’ parent workshop

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.”

Road Safety Poster Competition 2019

Dear Parents
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!

Yours sincerely

Shan & Daniel, on behalf of the School Council

Work Related Learning

Yesterday, we held our annual Work Related Learning summer fair!

There were loads of stalls selling items made by the children, and each stall was based around a country.

Lots of delicious food was sold too, and there were many different games to play.

What did you like best about Work Related Learning?

Harvest Assembly

Key Stage 2 have enjoyed a Harvest assembly led by Mrs Bain and Year 5B. We talked about and celebrated the Harvest gifts brought in by our families.

5B performed a play to teach us the importance of sharing, being thankful and showing tolerance for other religions and beliefs. We talked about how lucky we are to have enough food to eat, and gave thanks for all the choices that we have.

Work Related Learning 2017

Our annual Work Related Learning event was a huge hit! We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather just like last year, so we were able to hold the event in the Key Stage 2 playground. 

Thank you so much to everybody who came and enjoyed the food, drinks, games, stalls and activities on offer. We raised a total of £688.82!
