Y1 Forest Schools, by Mrs Bailey

Date: 10th Sep 2022 @ 4:43pm

We had a great time with Mr Hadfield today at Forest Schools in our incredible school grounds. We learnt about homes and habitats, made a big nest and took on the role of parent and baby birds, built a home for our Gruffalo, went on a bug hunt, practised mindfulness in our quiet spots, used Dragon Sneeze fire steels and toasted marshmallows on an open fire pit to name but a few things! Team work, sharing and gratitude were key elements of our learning today.

Thank you for sending children in with a spare pair of footwear and long sleeved tops and trousers.

Year 1 visit to Year 2, by Miss Jones

Date: 8th Jul 2022 @ 3:36pm

Yesterday we had our transition morning for next year. As the children soon realised, nothing much is changing except our classroom! We had a lovely time exploring our new room and they all decided they loved the green walls!! We enjoyed being creative, turning a black dot into something amazing! It was so lovely to see their imaginations take them in different directions and the work they produced was magical! They were all at ease and seemed more than ready for their Year 2 journey.

We are looking forward to another wonderful year with them.

WOW! The children have been exceptional and it has been a wonderfully busy day! They have smiled all day long and it has been lovely to see their excitement as we explored the different themed rooms. It was hard to pick a favourite! We had a sunny picnic in the park which seemed to be to everyone’s delight. We are really proud of how the children behaved and respected other’s around them. Thank you to our helpers too for doing a fabulous job!

Inter Schools Rounders Tournament, by Mrs Percival

Date: 7th Jul 2022 @ 7:00pm

On Monday a group of Y5 and Y6 children attended the Chester schools Rounders tournament in which over 20 teams took part. Our team won 3 out of their 4 matches and narrowly missed the semi-finals by one point. What we were most impressed with was their team spirit and sportsmanship, they were a real credit to Oldfield.

Y1 had a great day with Mr Hadfield at Forest Schools exploring our wooded area, looking for minibeasts and items of beauty within our enviornment, accessing quiet time and using our senses to notice the world around us, making hedgehogs out of clay and displaying them in our outside art gallery and toasting marshmallows on our outdoor fire. Lots of fun and learning was had by all!

Y1 have been busy preparing their quadrant in the sensory garden.

We have been painting bottle tops and old pieces of wood to make flowers, which will be displayed in the area once they are dry.

We've been planting sunflower seeds and garlic chive seeds in our recycled milk bottles, using the milk bottles as mini greenhouses to aid germination. Keep your eye out for our bunting which will be hung in our quadrant.

Gazebo Day 2, by Miss Jones

Date: 11th May 2022 @ 3:37pm

Today the weather was too wet to set the gazebo up outside so Year One and Jacob moved indoors. We warmed up by playing the game where the children had to clap to catch Bob the fish. We then continued to read the story and acted climbing up to the castle, going inside and meeting the giant! We were so surprised to find out that the giant was friendly. We then acted out cooking a meal from the giant to Jack. After that we climbed back down the beanstalk but it SNAPPED! The giant cried as he couldn’t get back to his castle. We then made and decorated our own leaves to put on a beanstalk.


The children have been absolute super stars and really enjoyed the last two days!

Gazebo Day, by Miss Jones

Date: 10th May 2022 @ 3:45pm

Year One have been so lucky to spend their day in this incredible gazebo with Jacob from The Storyhouse.

We began by playing a game called ‘The Finger of Doom’ to get to know everybody’s name - this was very funny as the rules kept changing. We then started to read the story of Jack and the Baked Beanstalk. We acted out walking to market - the children were fantastic at demonstrating how sad and hungry they might have felt.

We then designed our own colourful labels for a tin of baked beans which we then got to keep take home. We were also given a bean to plant in our tins once we’ve eaten up our baked beans!

Thank you passion for learning and Jacob.

Science Sorting!, by Miss Jones
