Autumn Term 2017


This term, Classes 14, 9 and 7 have recieved specialist coaching in gymnastics from one of the coaches from District Sports. This has been to develop both the children's skills and the teaching skills of the Class teachers. Everyone that I have spoken to has really enjoyed this experience.

Football League

The boys team have had heaps of success in their recent football matches.  They worked well as a team to secure 3 wins and 1 loss. The team worked really well together, never gave up and encouraged each other throughout each match. The boys hardwork and perserverence led to the following results:

Oakwood 2 - 1 Dunalley

Oakwood 2 - 1 Gotherington

Oakwood 0 - 4 Greatfield Park

Oakwood 9 - 0 Sr. Thomas Moore

We are extremely proud of the teamwork, effort and determination displayed by the boys football team.  We eagerly await the results of the league! Well done Oakwood!

Netball Match: Oakwood V Charlton Kings

Oakwood competed in their second netball match against Charlton Kings Primary School. Despite the cold weather and the setting sun the team perservered and played an excellent defensive game. Although Charlton Kings led the match with a 4 point lead in the first half, Oakwood's defensive skills managed to prevent the opposition from scoring any additional points.  An example of their outstanding teamwork!

For this match a review was written by Jess in C13:

"We were playing a netbal match against Charlton Kings. It was a tough match.  We lost but we worked really hard. Personally, I'd like to give all my thanks to Miss Spencer as she gave the team courage, support and most importantly hope! We all worked so hard as they were taller and visibly more natural at it but we never gave up."

Well done Oakwood netball team, the school are very proud of your achievements.



Netball match: Oakwood V Rowanfield

Oakwood's netball team competed in their first ever netball match against Rowanfield Primary School. The team worked well together and quickly began to implement the skills they had developed during the after school netball sessions. Despite losing 3 - 0 to Rowanfield, Oakwood displayed qualities of: passion, determination, teamwork and excellent sportmanship! Even though they did not win the team encouraged and cheered each other on.  They gained valuable experience ready for their next match.  For this match Lilly from C13 was team Captain and gave the following match review:

"Oakwood's first match of the seasion against Rowanfield went really well despite losing 3 - 0. The team showed great netball skills in intercepting the ball despite our height disadvantage.  We played really well as a team calling and encouraging our team mates.  We had some great chances of scoring but hopefully better luck next time. Well done team Oakwood!"

Super Skipping

Well done to everyone that took part in our Jump Off for British Heart Foundation this morning. Super skipping and lots of fun! You were all amazing! Please send your Sponsor Money in to school by Wed 15th November.



Jump Off for British Heart Foundation

We have all gone Skipping crazy for a great cause. This Friday 3rd November, we will be holding our very own 'Jump off' in order to have some fun whilst raising money for the very worthwhile and life saving research carried out every year by The British Heart Foundation.

The children will complete a circuit of activities in the hall and will then head outside (weather permitting) to wow their friends with the new skipping skills they've developed or try out a few new challenges.

Don't forget your comfy skipping shoes!     heart by tomas_arad

Peripatetic Teacher

This term we have been really lucky to have Mr Roberts, from District Sports, in school one afternoon a week. Although he has fitted an awful lot in during that time.

He has organised lunchtime clubs: focussing on running longer distances and a playground games club. He provided some excellent sessions for three different classes, to help develop the teachers skills in the most practical way possible. Class 4 had a term focussing on Multiskills, Class 12 had a term focussing on OAA (Outdoor and Adventurous Activities) and Class 10 were particularly lucky trhat they had two terms with Mr Roberts, one focussing on Invasion Games through Rugby and one focussing on OAA. After school, he also ran our Hockey Club for the Autumn term which will be continued by Mrs Jacobs next term in preparation for the Quickstiks Hockey tournament in March.

We have all loved having Mr Roberts in school and the fantastic range of expertise he brings with him.
