8H – Rights Respecting Schools

This week in our RRS lesson we focused on anti-bullying. As a class we looked at different examples of kind and unkind behaviour on the board. We then worked 1:1 to sort a full list of behaviours into friendly or bullying. A couple of our main friendly behaviours were sharing and helping others; so we got out a couple of games to play together. One really tests our fine motor skills; it can be a bit fiddly, so we all helped each other to put the pieces together.

8H – Remembrance Day

8H worked together to create a display to honour those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Year 7 art

During the first half term year 7’s were working on their ‘create’ baseline art assessment. As you can see they produced some fantastic final pieces that demonstrate their creative abilities.

Y7 Walking Group


The Y7 Walking Group, during enrichment activities on a Friday afternoon, have been exploring the local area around The Oaks.  Whilst developing their individual fitness levels they have also been working upon their teamwork skills and supporting each other.  They take it in turns to lead the group, setting the pace by “walking at the pace of the slowest” and sticking together.   Whilst on the walks we have been learning about the environment, wildlife, the weather, walking skills and how to be safe.

Eco Schools projects


Over the last few weeks leading up to the COP26 in Glasgow, our students have been learning about climate change, what it means to them and what they can do to help prevent it.  I observed some great projects from saving the bees to reducing the amount of water when washing our hands and brushing our teeth.  I know many classes that are very passionate and are working really hard to ensure that the recycling bins in their classrooms are used correctly and have been designing reminder posters of what should and shouldn’t be put into them.  I’m sure you will agree that raising awareness of such an important global issue whilst having fun doing it has reaped wonderful results. Well done all!
