South of the River Swim
On Wednesday 10 girls went to JAGS to take part in the prestigious South of the River Girls swimming gala. 14 schools from all around South London took part. Mimi, Holly, Tess, Verity, Izzy, Viviana, Didi, Yusra, Ella and Lara swam with seemingly endless energy and thoroughly deserve their respect cards. Well done girls, you swam with a positive attitude, volunteering for races and working together as a strong team. I was very pleased to be your coach and you represented Oakfield wonderfully. Mrs Cubberley-Lobb
ISA Tag Rugby
On Wednesday there was a great game of U11 Tag Rugby in Tunbridge Wells. Well done to all that took part and behaved impeccably through the day.
WORLD BOOK DAY
Dress to Impress
We were very impressed by the amount of effort and thought everyone put into their World Book Day costumes. Characters and ideas from J.K.Rowling, David Walliams, Roald Dahl et al were all well-represented along with some from classic children's literature. Well done to all for celebrating your favourite books and encouraging the joy of reading!
Lotte Moore Visit
To coincide with World Book Day, WWII survivor Lotte Moore came to visit the Lowers, Uppers, Year 1 and 2 children. She read some the of the books she has written to the children and they were able to get signed copies. She is a master story teller and had the children laughing with stories about a crocodile who ate a mobile phone and she 'turned' the smaller children into wobbly jellies!
Year 2 also got a glimpse in to her life as a child in London during WWII and what it was like to be evacuated. She had some funny tales about Winston Churchill swimming in her pool and the horrible food she was given while she was living in Wales during the war!
Year 1 have had an amazing week expanding our knowledge of Toys! We talked about how they are made and which toys have stood the test of time. We found out that the first toy was a horse on wheels found in a pyramid and dating back 3,500 years ago! Year 1 got to use tools such as a drill and hammer too. What an exciting day of Design and Technology.
This week, the Spanish club children performed a short play inspired in “Coco” the movie.
They sang the song “un poco loco” and recited lines in Spanish and English.
Children in Year 5 & Year 6 received their pen pal letter this week. This is our 4th year exchanging information with our partner school in Spain,“Arquitecto Leoz” in Puerto Real- Cadiz.
