Last term, gardening club had over 100 plug plants to plant. These included many varieties of lettuce, cabbage, rocket, spinach and mustard. We had to get the beds ready and prepare the soil. Now in Term 2, our vegetables are looking so healthy and are nearly ready for us to start tasting!
In this dark weather though, it is hard to see the difference between weeds and plants so we are working inside, creating Christmas decorations from all the pine cones we collected from under the trees.
At After School Club there is a dress up group. The dress up group comes up with a story to play every Thursday. The group is funny and we have fun every time we play. If you do not like to dress up there is an art and craft table. There is also Lego, sandwiches, games and dolls for everyone to enjoy. The club is run for us by Mrs Miles and Mrs Mitchell.
We have been learning about how to draw real objects using shapes and lines as well as looking at the different colours we need. This week we decided to draw a picture of the crocus from our garden. We worked very hard to make our pictures reflect the real objects.
Every Thursday at Oaks Primary Academy, we have the largest after school club we have ever had with 40 children all taking part. Children from Year R to Year 6 were all involved and this week they did amazingly well completing high jump and long jump.
Every Tuesday at Oaks Academy, football coaches from outside of the academy come in and teach football to children from across the school. A huge congratulations is in order for all of those who are in involved in the football club after they were all praised for their amazing work and behavior. One of their coaches, Johnny Elwood from EMC Academy even said that “The children at Oaks are a pleasure to coach and we would happily coach the children all day every day.”
We love Stay and play club because we can play whatever we want and we have snacks! Sometimes we make our own snack and we have sandwiches or crackers. We can choose to play inside or outside and some of our favourite things to do are:
Mrs Palmer and Dolly have set up a walking club in the lunch hour and children will be able to join them at 12 O’clock to walk out of school up to the local park for some exercise and relaxation for half an hour. It is an opportunity to learn about responsibility of owning a dog and how to respect our local park areas.
On Thursday Mrs Palmer, Dolly and 8 children from Year 5 and 6 walked out in their high visibility jackets for their first outing. It was very successful and they all took it in turns to walk Dolly. A list has been put up for children to put their name down so that all the children will be given the opportunity to join in. We will be starting with KS2 as a trial.
In January, Oaks Primary Academy choir are taking part in the Young Voices concert at the O2 arena in London. Our choir will be singing with thousands of children from schools around the country. As you can imagine we are all very excited!
We are busy learning the words and practicing the songs and dance moves at the moment. There is lots to learn and one of the songs even has a verse in Welsh, which is quite tricky to learn! Our favourite song at the moment is the Pop Medley.
This term, the children have been working very hard practicing for the the Concert.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.Ofsted
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.Ofsted
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.Ofsted
