Note from our Head
Dear Oakfield families,
It has been the greatest joy to see and hear our playgrounds, classrooms and corridors buzzing with activity again. I managed to see many of you on Monday morning as we returned to school, and it was thrilling, and has been thrilling, to see the excitement of the children as they see their friends again and resume their usual school life.
Both I and all the Oakfield staff are keeping a very careful watch on how all the children are adapting back into the normal school routine. Their strong character and resilience has shone through but we are conscious of the mental and emotional strain that the pandemic has placed on everyone.
Therefore, please feel reassured that the Oakfield community are looking out for each other, treating everyone with care and consideration, and greatly looking forward to the rest of term, here, in school once again.
Have wonderful weekends,
World Book Day Winners in Pre-Prep
There has been a buzz of excitement in my office, as the World Book Day Winners have received their stickers, certificates and prizes today! It was such a joy to reward the children for their great efforts in dressing up, making puppets, reading aloud, making props and sharing their favourite stories with us!
Congratulations to all who participated – we are very proud of you all.
Keep showing your creativity in all you do.
Year 5 were thrilled to be back in school. We learned lots in Science lessons at home, but it was so fun to be able to get back to the practical side of things and experiment with the different elements of an electrical circuit!
This is what the children said about the year 4 play "Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits"
"I am very excited! We are against the clock but it is still fun. It will be great!" Sophia
" We have 2 weeks to rehearse this play and we are working together to make it happen" Sadie
Year 2 were so delighted to be reunited with ALL their friends!
The children were so happy to be doing all the things they love about school, sitting and having lunch together, catching up with one another, enjoying outdoor games and playtime!
In Science the children had the opportunity to work with circuits. They had fun following the correct steps in order to make the lightbulb glow:
Do we have two wires with crocodile clips? Check!
Do we have a light bulb? Check!
Do we have a battery with two terminals? Check!
We have loved having the children back this week and it is so nice to see them back with all of their friends. They have all settled back into the school routine well and seem very happy to be back!
For Show and Tell this week the children in Lower Foundation bought in their wonderful masks that they made at home.
They used their loud, clear and expressive language to describe and talk about their amazing alien mask. In further detail they discussed the colours, features and techniques used.
We spoke about how to be a good audience and the children all demonstrated wonderful listening skills. Many questions were asked and lots of detailed responses were given.
Well done all (parents included!)
What a fun day we have had exploring our Oakfield Solar System! The children travelled from each classroom to conquer a space challenge! They built fruit rockets, made sand rockets and designed alien masks to name just a few....
The children listened well and followed instructions successfully. Well done everyone and we hope you enjoy your space treats!
We look forward to space dress up day, next week on the 17th, where more space fun will continue!
'To infinity and beyond!'
