Thursday 3rd October saw a very special Assembly based around the beautiful country of Jamaica thanks to the Peterkin family. Grandma Georgia sang a traditional song from the tropical isle, while mother Lisa had delicious Jamaica breads for the children to taste. A beautiful time was had by all!
Perfect Pizza Making
Year 1 channelled their inner Gino D'Acampo to make their very own pizzas at Pizza Express on Wednesday 2nd October. They got to learn all about the different ingredients involved, 1AW made the yummiest pizza and were lucky enough to eat their delicious creations for lunch .
Dinosaur Discovery at Oakfield
This term we have been learning about dinosaurs. On Tuesday 1st October, our Year 3s returned after their school photographs had been taken to find a strange discovery in one of the classrooms!
A cracked open egg with orange spots was found in the middle of 3HB, sitting on a multi-coloured straw nest. There were also some suspicious footprints leading towards an open window. Curious indeed.
In their upcoming English lessons, the Year 3 children will be interviewing each other and writing up a newspaper report of this event to try to figure out the mystery!
British Museum Trip Back in Time
On Monday 30th September, half of Year 4 embarked on a digital discovery workshop at The British Museum.
They used smartphones to find artefacts in the galleries and then we produced and filmed news reports on the fascinating Anglo Saxon burial ground of Sutton Hoo.
The other half of the year group have the same trip to look forward to in a few weeks time!

Trip to West Ham v Spurs in the WSL
On Sunday 29th September an eclectic group of girls, boys, parents and staff ventured out to the London Olympic Stadium to savour West Ham v Tottenham in the Women's Super League.
Conditions were wet, wild and windy but that didn't put off players or fans alike, with the second highest-ever attendance figures for a WSL game at over 25,000 people.
Well done to Spurs who won 2-0. And thank you to ALL that came along.
Special mention goes to Miss Chandler who kindly organised the trip.
For those who have been inspired on Saturday 12th October, Oakfield have two girls' football teams competing in a tournament in West London. Do register your interest now.
Also, any girls interested in playing football outside school, should speak to Head Girl Sophie Collier in Year 6 or Mrs Collier. Sophie plays for a girls' team in Dulwich and they would be interested to hear from new players.
