World Book Day
To mark the 20th anniversary of World Book Day, the children & staff got into the spirit of things by dressing up as their favourite characters. There was some wonderful costumes. Thank you all for your HUGE efforts!
We are delighted to welcome Playground Projects to school this week who have created a fabulous area with new playground equipment to make break times, lunchtimes and even some PE lessons particulary exciting for our children.
We put forward a successful bid which was accepted and therefore the money for the majority of this project has been met from Lottery funding.
We are also very grateful to out Friends of Oakfield Group who have contributed towards the project using funds from school parties, discos etc. and to the local council for providing the bark and to British Steel for their donation of sleepers for the site to become possible.
THANKS SO MUCH TO YOU ALL - WE ARE OVER THE MOON .
Scunthorpe Music Festival
The Oakfield choir sang incredibly well and finished in joint 1st place alongside Bottesford Juniors.
We were also excited to hear that at the end of the music festival the choir were also awarded the 'Gordon Mawson Trophy' and bursary for being the most promising choir of the whole festival! Read more on our Scunthorpe Music Festival tab!
Maths Open Classroom Event- Wednesday 18th May 2016
As part of our continuing work with the Maths Hubs and our firm commitment to improving standards in Maths for all children, we held an open morning to showcase the huge transformation that we have embraced in the teaching and learning of Maths at Oakfield.
Oakfield Primary, Holme Valley, Leys Farm, Scawby and Hibaldstow Academy are buzzing with delight having recently discovered that they have been chosen to help to protect the dwindling population of Britain’s pollinating insects. We are looking for volunteers (family members or friends) who'd be interested in offering sometime to help. Read more on our Polli:Nation tab!
