Date: 29th Sep 2020 @ 4:13pm
Year 3 have started to develop their ability to count in 4s and 8s.
Below is a link to a video we have used to support their recall of counting in 4s. They really enjoyed listening and watching the number patterns in school but requested I shared the website with you at home so that they can sing along to it at home.
Have fun singing and dancing along counting in 4s Superstars!

Adrift performance Tuesday 29th January 6.30 pm , by Mrs Bailey
Date: 25th Jan 2019 @ 6:54pm
We look forward to seeing as many families as possible to the Adrift performance this Tuesday evening in school. The performance is pitched at Key Stage 2 children and will take place in the school hall. Families and children are welcome.
Oldfield Primary School, Action Transport Theatre and the Ignite Teaching School Alliance would like to invite you to our community showing of Adrift:
Two children are in a boat. One is rowing. One is fishing. They dream about a land, a beautiful land that’s waiting for them. A safe land. Adrift is a poignant and important play from acclaimed children’s theatre company Action Transport Theatre. Told from the perspective of two children adrift at sea fleeing conflict, it is a celebration of the resilience and imagination of childhood.
Time - 6.30pm on Tuesday 29th January 2019 at Oldfield Primary School.
Doors open at 6.10pm, refreshments available both before and after.
Please join us after the show for a discussion about the play and how we can develop our curriculum to support our children in their learning.
Please RSVP to email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01244 981772 by Tuesday 22nd January

Well done to the Year 5/6 girls who played their first football match of the year today. They played a cup match against the Kings school. The girls played brilliantly together and didn't give up. Well done to Lindsay for her first goal for Team Oldfield. The score was 9-1 so sadly we are out of the cup but we are looking forward to playing our league matches.
A special mention to all the adults who came to cheer the girls along. It was wonderful to have a crowd to support the team.
Well done girls!
Under 9s girls football , by Miss Jones
Date: 9th Nov 2018 @ 3:11pm
On Friday afternoon, Miss Jones took 6 children from Year 3 and 4 to take part in a girls football tournament. The team played 4 other local schools. For most of the team, it was their first ever football match! They played brilliantly together as a team and learnt lots of skills as they played more games. It was wonderful to see their confidence grow as they played each game. A special mention to Heather for her brilliant goal and Eve for her amazing goal keeping.
Thanks to Mr Powis and Mr Evans for their sideline support and thanks to Mrs Weeks for helping with transport too.
Well done girls!
