Oakfield Academy welcomed sports stars Julian Gollay (Commonwealth triple jumper) and Grant Fielder (World mountain bike champion) to their Superschools fund-raising day. Pupils were sponsored for doing a circuit of fitness exercises. Grant then did a fantastic bike stunt display on the school yard for the pupils to watch. Money raised will go towards supporting our Olympic and Paralympic teams.
With great excitement over 300 members of KS2 travelled to Bath University on Friday 17th March for the ‘Bath taps into Science’ Festival, to celebrate National Science Week. For over two hours the children completed lots of hands on activities including holding giant African land snails and millipedes, making a hovercraft, looking at how we see (pictured), optical illusions and chocolate tasting! The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and looking at the types of careers they could carry out in the future using STEM—science, technology, engineers and math's.

The Year 8 netball team did really well at the Mendip Tournament on 15.3.17
They won 3 matches, drew 1 (although should've won as we were 3-1 up against Hugh Sexeys but that was our first game) and we lost 2. They came 3rd out of 7.
The 2 teams we lost against came 1st & 2nd by a landslide. However, Fairlands lost 17-0 to the 2nd place team and Selwood lost 11-0 to them, whereas we lost 6-0 having the closest margin of all the teams. We lost 4-1 to the overall winners, who were Crispin.
We scored 27 goals in total, so amazing work by our pupils. Lydia Powell 8S was the top goal scorer. She learnt not to be quite so polite, apologising everytime someone contacted her. In the last game, Lydia developed her "game face".
All staff and pupils who attended The Sons of Pitches workshop which was held at King Arthur’s School, Wincanton agreed that it had been a wonderful privilege. The inspirational group of guys who won BBC2’s ‘The Naked Choir’ in November 2015, were not only incredibly talented, but able to connect and communicate with our students. A number of our students were selected for solo performances, a special mention to Alex Jeffries from 7A for outstanding effort, however all of the students really did shine.
