A message from Mrs Mooney

Dear Parents and Carers,

How refreshing it has been to have a five-day week in school! It has been action packed with lots of fun learning across the school. Year 1 were particularly fortunate with the weather for their outdoor learning days. They had a fantastic time using their imaginations to create fairy villages and potions using magic wands that they had made themselves. In class they have been learning how to multiply using arrays and were delighted to be able to create their arrays using daisies and other natural objects. Thank you to the parents who accompanied Year 1, making this great experience possible.

Starfish class oozed confidence in their assembly this morning, speaking so loudly and clearly with huge smiles. They shared their exciting learning all about Beegu the alien, who visited their class earlier this term. They retold the story and shared the posters they had made using adjectives. They also told us all about their visit to the Synagogue and finished with sharing what they had grown in confidence in this year. A huge thank you to Mrs Tooley, Miss Morgan, Miss Forde and Mrs Hawkins for creating such a wonderful assembly.

We are looking forward to presenting awards for our April/May Writers of the Month on Monday. The children have been trying really hard and the quality of their writing is getting better and better as a result. Children’s writing will be available to view on the website next week.

As the weather hopefully continues to improve, please remember to apply sunscreen before children come to school. We encourage children to wear sunhats rather than sunglasses due to the in evitable breakages and losses that would occur.

And finally …….the evening we have all been waiting for! We are looking forward to the annual Oatlands Spring Ball and we are sure it is going to be an enormous success! A huge thank you to the organisers and to all who will be there to support Oatlands!

Mrs Tanya Mooney

All Reception parents are welcome to join us for a whole year group assembly on Friday 24th May at 2pm in the school hall. This is also a mufti day so children can come to school in mufti but Reception children will need to bring in their school uniform in a named bag to change into at lunch time ready for the assembly. We look forward to seeing you there.
