We Hear You – Fundraing

Pupils support Sgt. Rachel Clarke with her fund raising for ‘We Hear You’ a local cancer counselling charity.  Almost every pupil ran a mile during the day, which fortunately was bright and sunny.  Many staff also completed the run, including Ms Wilkes who ran the specially made course two times!  Pupils were incredibly supportive of the activity and a total of £73.37 was donated from  pocket money.

Great job everybody!

A massive WELL DONE to all the pupils and staff involved in MATHS WEEK ENGLAND last week.
The 30 KS2 pupils involved in the Primary Maths Challenge were so enthusiastic and excited which was such a joy to see. It was the first time we have entered this competition and the pupils have responded brilliantly to it. We have 4 pupils whose names have been put forward for the final round of the competition in Feb 2020.
Almost 500 pupils took part in the TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS competition which was amazing! They showed commitment in their lunchtimes and evenings.
Around 3000 schools across England took part and Oakfield Academy came 268th in the whole country.
