Note from our Head
Dear Oakfield families,
It has not exactly been the most straightforward of weeks to round off the half-term. Thank you to all of you who have once again exemplified your incredible support, understanding and adaptability as we had to temporarily close the Prep and then the Pre-Prep buildings this week given the positive test results. Thank you to the staff for adjusting to remote teaching once more, and to the whole Oakfield community in general for the spirit of partnership that shines through even in very trying circumstances.
I hope you all have lovely and safe half-terms, and we sincerely look forward to welcoming everyone back through the red gates on the 7th June.
Year 3 has been learning about cubism this half term. First, they made portraits out of geometric shapes and then tried cutting multiple faces out of magazines to construct portraits of people.
Last week, their journey into cubism went 3D! Using foam board cut into irregular geometric shapes, Year 3 built gravity defying structures representing musical instruments, animals, cities and adventures into abstraction.
After half term, year 3 will look at the origins of geometric design when they explore the world of Ancient Roman mosaics.
The Year 1 children have been working very hard this week on their Assessments and deserved a treat at the end of the week. They enjoyed playing some board games and had a gorgeous picnic in Belair Park!
