13/7/18 Year Three GANAS share
Thank you so much to all the Year Three parents for a fantastic turn out for the GANAS share. The children’s projects were amazing, and this was down to your wonderful enthusiasm and commitment at home so thank you!
I loved seeing their creativity come alive, and the visiting children in Year 2 and 4 were inspired by incredible projects.
Official Flag raising ceremony 22/6/18
Thank you to 2 ex pupils for coming back to Richard Clarke to be the first to raise the flag they kindly bought for us as a leaving gift. It was a great ceremony and we sang our new Richard Clarke winning anthem and found out how the children are getting on at Oldfields. A super occasion.

All the children have again enjoyed a wonderful experience at Goat Lodge. They got to learn all about nature and wildlife.

Thank you to Goat Lodge and the Forestry Commission for having us again.

Easter Hat Competition March 2018
Congratulations to all the children who entered the Easter hat competition. Every hat was different and there were all sorts of fantastic designs and themes. The children voted for the winners and Mr Gliddon, (Headteacher from OHMS) voted for the overall winner.
We presented prizes at the Spring Sing which was a most joyous event enjoyed by all!
Harley the Hawk visit (18/4/18)
We had a wonderful day on Wednesday in school. Each class had a workshop with Katie and Harley and learned all sorts of great things from our village expert. We learned lots of science regarding things like food chains and animal classification as well as about falconry terms still used in language today like ’under the thumb’ and ’fed up’ and a little about it’s place in our history. It was fascinating and everyone learned lots of new things, including the grown ups!
We got to see Harley fly, although this didn’t entirely go to plan as Harley decided to have long rest in the tree and it took us a while (and some help from the fire service) to get him down safely! This added to the excitement and the tree will now, forever be known as ‘Harley’s Tree’ !!
The children will all have a souvenir photo to take home of themselves with Harley and Katie to remember the day by and I hope they’ve shared their new knowledge with you!
It’s a world of motion in Year 4! (14/3/18)
Year 4 Design Technology Project: March 2018
It’s a world of cams, linkages, motion and fun for the Y4 children at the moment! With careful assistance, everyone has had the opportunity to build an ‘automata’ based around the traditional ‘Punch and Judy’ show. Turn the handle and characters burst into life: crocodiles, policemen and Punch arguing as they do in the traditional puppet theatre.
Children learn many engineering and science principles, turning rotary motion into reciprocating motion, building levers and linkages and the advantages of different types of levers plus real practical problem solving skills.
It is claimed that the UK was short of 20,000 engineers in 2017. Let’s hope that in 2027 some of these bright young students from our school will consider a career in engineering when they finish their ‘A’ levels!
Homelearning Share (12/12/17)
Homelearning ‘GANAS’ Projects
Well done to the whole school for their fabulous efforts with your homelearning projects. It was wonderful to see such a range of different ideas to present learning. Thank you to all who came and looked around school to admire the great diversity of successful projects. Fabulous!

We all enjoyed December in school and took part in many activities to celebrate Christmas. We had parties, Christmas dinner and performed our Christmas plan ‘Its a baby’. Our RCFS choir also sang Christmas songs in church and at the Christmas fair. A joyous time.
