Netball Match: Oakwood V Biships Cleeve

Oakwood had their 4th netball match of the year against Bishops Cleeve School. The team were very excited and nervous about the game.  They displayed excellent teamwork, passion and determination. The teams netball skills are progressing with each match and they put in so much effort that they achieved a 4 - 3 win against Bishops Cleeve.

Jessica (Year 6) wrote our match review:

"WOW...that was an awesome netball match. I mean really...even though I was only there for half a match. I loved it, Bishops Cleeve were very good. I was sad to leave the match half way but I rooted for Oakwood to win. Everyone had a good attitude towards each other and towards the game. Also the weather was tough but we all played on! After a well fought match, with some fantastic interceptions, Oakwood won 4 - 3"

Well done Oakwood

The Daily Mile

At Oakwood every class are now participating in the Daily Mile. The purpose of this is to encourage the children to continue to be active during the day.  The overall aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of all the children at Oakwood. Each day, the children participate in an active 10 - 15 minutes with their Teacher and class. They can choose to complete this in a variety of ways some children choose to hop, jump, skip or run. 

All children are encouraged to attempt to run 1 mile in the allocated time, especially in Key Stage 2. This provides an opportunity for personal challenge and development. The main aim to to just keep moving! Each Teacher has a number of possible Daily Mile routes to choose from for their class. The children are told how many laps of the route they would need to complete to achieve the mile and many children choose to track their own progress to see if they can improve over time! Ask your child how many laps they managed today! 

We are looking forward to continuing being active at Oakwood!


Reception Multi Skills

This term Class 2 are taking part in 5 Multiskillls lessons during their PE sessions with Mr Green and Miss Jackson from District Sports. Last week we balanced and flipped pancakes in our frying pans (which may have looked like racquets and beanbags) and this week we played lots of rolling based games. We can't wait to see what we will do over the next 3 weeks.



Football League: Oakwood V Glenfall

The overall score was Glenfall 1 - Oakwood 1.  This was one of those games where we just couldn't score! Even though we had most of the play, and put in some great corners, nothing was going our way. Eventually, in the second half, the first goal came - unfortunately it wasn't for us! Despite this, we kept our heads up and Archie scored a fantastic goal to equalise.

The game was very physical, with a lot of pushing and shoving, but we played with discipline and fought on. We thought that we should have won the game,so we felt that a 1 all draw was a disappointing result. Nevertheless, it is another step forward to the final!

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!"
