AUTUMN 2020- Word Mental Health Day


Oakwood have had a fabulous 'yellow' day, thinking about the 5 ways to well being in support of World Mental health Day.

We all enjoyed being Active on the climbing wall. We were so proud of the children trying something new,  facing their fears and challenging themselves to climb higher and higher each time. each time.
The mobile walls came from The Warehouse, Gloucester. If your child enjoyed their session today, why not take a visit. They have lots of different sessions for climbing, bouldering and caving, for all ages.

Move More Key Steps Gymnastics- Y5/6

Mrs Godsell and Mr Boston took the Y5/6 gymnastics team to the Move More Key Steps Competition on Thursday 13th February and were immensely proud of the girls. They had trained hard together as a team learning routines for the floor and vault, encouraging and helping each other out during practices. On the morning lots of the girls were feeling nervous; about forgetting their routines and the vault which looked much bigger than the one at school. The team dug deep, demonstrating the values of determination, passion and self-belief. They competed in the first part of the morning and spent the rest of the time watching the other schools competing.

The girls were rightly very pleased with themselves returning back to school with a number of medals. Most notably the team was awarded 2nd place silver medal position. What a fantastic achievement. All those positive attitudes and dedication to practising really paid off.

They were also awarded:

2nd place on Vault- Lily-Mae

3rd place on floor- Jess

2nd place on floor- Chloe

Values bands for; Determination- Taiya and Teamwork -Jess.
