Year 6 - Parliamentary Debate

19/11/2019

A huge well done to all the children from Year 6 who attended the Georgian Rooms at Wolverhampton Art Gallery today to take part in a parliamentary debate. They competed against two other schools from the city to persuade the Secretary of State for Education to keep their school open in light of government spending cuts. They spoke passionately and eloquently about the reasons why they loved their school and worked collaboratively to plan, write and deliver first class speeches in front of a captive audience. We are extremely proud of them.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint Challenge

16/07/2019

A group of pupils were tasked within their homes to reduce their carbon footprint.  The challenge was set by the BBC television presenter, Ayo Akinwolere, who also accepted the challenge.

 

The children initially worked with Leicester University, Dr Emma Fieldhouse, in a programme called ‘Carbon Footprinting in Schools’, learning about the effects of carbon footprinting and its impact upon our school, community, country and world.   The children played a game and were required to compare and order the carbon footprint of such things as:1kg of bananas compared with a first class flight to Australia; a furiously boiling saucepan with the making of hard cheese and the designing, making and transportation of jeans and trainers.

Having learned about carbon footprinting, the children rose to the challenge of reducing their own carbon footprints within their homes working with their families.  After seven days, the results were revealed in a whole school assembly and to rapturous applause, the children beat presenter Ayo Akinwolere! 

The children’s research and findings will feature in BBC’s ‘Inside Out’ programme, which, will air on Monday 2nd September. 

Year 3's Stone Age Day

15/07/2019

Year 3 had a wonderful, fun-filled day where we went back in time to the Stone Age. We started our day by creating cave art, working under our tables and drawing Stone Age symbols. Then, we created some tools using sticks, stones and wool. After we finished making our tools, we went outside to hunt for some animals. We also created our own Stone Age pottery.

Mini Medics Training Course

14/06/19

A huge well done to all of the children who completed the Mini Medics training course last week. They spent an afternoon alongside an adult family member learning invaluable First Aid skills including defibrillation, the recovery position, choking, asthma, wounds and bleeding and the treatment of shock. All children are now equipped with the skills to help someone get better more quickly and even save a life. Amazing!

Well done, Isla.

Oak Meadow's Charity Drive

20/12/18

The Oak Meadow community came together with outstanding outcomes in a charity drive for Spurgeons in order to make a difference for families and children in our local area.  Spurgeons offers a wide range of services to support young carers - young people aged 8-18 who are caring for or supporting a family member with an illness or disability, in the way an adult normally would. Because of the fantastic work the young carers in our local area do for their loved ones the children launched Oak Meadow Primary School's 'Christmas Surprise for Spurgeons'.  Exciting learning opportunities and significant events such as designing decorations, taking on responsibilities of a young carer and the luxury Christmas dinner served by teachers helped to develop our empathy and gave a positive focus to all of our efforts.  As a result, our local community has donated hundreds of gifts and raised substantial funds to recognise how valued and special every young carer is in all that they do to support their families.  Thank you and well done to everyone in the Oak Meadow community!

18/12/18

A group of Year 5 children had the wonderful opportunity to take part in a Boccia Challenge at Westcroft School.

Play Makers' Leadership

Recently, a group of fourteen Year 5 children attended the Play Makers’ Leadership Training at Coppice Performing Arts School. They gained their first accredited leadership award, which has provided them with the skills and knowledge to deliver lunchtime activities on our playgrounds.

We look forward to seeing the children take on their role within school and lead a range of activities to help us become a more active and healthy school.
