One of the Chickens is lost!

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

At the weekend one of our  chickens, Ruby, went missing. We think people were in our nature area at night, as we found empty wine bottles and beer cans.  It seems that people let her out of the run, as no feathers were found. The other chickens are trying to cope with the loss of their friend.

We are making the security better so that we can avoid it happening again.


New Allotment Sign

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Michael, Mr Mezo and Mr Hill  have been working very hard and have come up with a new idea that will stop children running onto the allotment.  Michael has decided to put up a sign telling people they are to stay on the playground to protect all the flowers. He helped paint the sign and dug the hole in which the sign is now placed. Michael really enjoyed working on the sign and has worked really hard to keep the allotment looking beautiful.


Super reading day

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Just before breaking up for Easter,  Oakwood Junior School had a ‘Super Reading Day, where we swapped classes throughout the school and did many activities in each year groups. Before they swapped, the pupils were asked to do a activity on their chosen book that they had brought in.  The day was a complete success and everyone enjoyed it!

The 2 school councilors out of class 12 met Mr. Woolly, a representative of St. Johns Ambulance Brigade.  He came in to ask for  ideas of fund raising to raise money for them.   All the school councilors are going to be asking their classes for any simple ideas we could use, such as non-uniform day.
