Autumn 2022

Move More Panathlon Ten Pin Bowling

Today 6 children from Year 5/6 attended the Move More Ten Pin Bowling. It was a close call right up until the final ball was bowled.

The pupils were excellent ambassadors for Oakwood; showing each other and the other teams respect and playing with determination and passion. Well done to you all!



Move More Tag Rugby Club

Callum Smith, from Move More, is currently running a very popular Tag Rugby Club for Y5 and Y6 on Mondays after school. We are hoping this preparation will enable us to enter a team or two into the Tag Rugby Festival usually held in March at Newlands.

You may recognise Callum, who worked with a number of classes at Oakwood back in 2019.

Bounce Beyond for Mental Health Week

We were very excited to work with Bounce Beyond to stimulate our endorphins and have fun whilst exercising, in support of Mental Health Week.


KS2 Swimming


The pool is coming back to school, at the end of September for all children in Key Stage 2
We are very excited to be able to run some intensive swimming sessions for Willow, Rowan, Cedar, Hazel, Aspen, Chestnut and Sycamore classes.

After a stressful start, caused by a burst water pipe and collapsed ceiling in KS2, we thought the pool was going to come down without one single swimmer having made use of it. We were relieved the following morning to hear swim sessions could actually go ahead. After a speedy re-fill, lessons went ahead for 3 weeks.


Move More Cross Country Events

A team of Year 5 runners braved the first two Cross country events of this Academic Year. The all ran amazingly, showing determination, immense team spirit and passion for the sport. The final two races will be held in March.
