Sports Day

Thank you to all those who donated baked goods, cut up the bananas and oranges and helped out serving refreshments to the parents and children at Sports Day and a huge thanks in advance of next week, to everyone involved in the Year 6 Production!
 

Classlist Marketplace


Oatlands PTA will be using Classlist Marketplace to sell some excess items, you can use it too. If you have unwanted pre-loved items for sale from bikes to toys and clothing, posting is simple. It works very similar to ebay or Facebook Marketplace, but the best thing is you can automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the PTA to fund improvements and enhancements to the school to benefit your children.  Look out on marketplace soon for items for sale.

Summer Jamboree

An absolutely huge THANK YOU to all the parents, carers, children and staff who contributed time, donated gifts, sweets and baking to the Summer Jamboree 2019 and to all those who came along to support the event.  A huge £3,500 was raised on the day, this will be spent on new playground markings that will be painted in during the summer holidays.  Again, we can’t thank everyone enough for all the time and effort put in.

 

Reminder there is still time to purchase tickets for the Infants and Juniors Summer Party at Harrogate Rugby Club -

Knaresborough Bedrace Saturday 8th June - The annual Knaresborough bedrace is happening on Saturday! Please come down and support the super fast Mens Team captained by Jules Murray - they are bed number 9 and will be wearing yellow OJS running vests sponsored by Verity Frearson. Georgia Murray is the passenger so please give her a shout out. Also a big thank you to the Arts Committee for decorating the bed surround - an amazing Yorkshire dales scene decorated with fabric flowers made by every child in the school. Finally, please look out for Mrs McNerney and Mrs King who will be wearing their hi-vis vest and marshalling near the Worlds End Pub. Big thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to get the OJS team ready for the day. Good luck and see you all in Knaresborough on Saturday!!

Summer Jamboree – 22nd June

We would still really appreciate some Tombola prizes and sweets in jars for the Summer Jamboree, if you have anything to spare, please hand in at the office or let us know and we can organise handover.

We’ll be sending raffle tickets home in bookbags next week so please do look out for them

 

Verity Frearson Boards

07/06/19 Thank you to everyone who has offered to support the PTA by putting a VF board up outside their house, these will be going up in the next few days. There is still time, if you are able to help - please let the PTA know.

24/05/19 Thanks for all those who have agreed to have a VF board outside their house – the easiest £25 the PTA can make! We would love to secure a few more so if you live on a main route around town and wouldn’t mind a board temporarily outside your house, please do let us know on Classlist or at sec.ojs.pta@gmail.com the boards will be placed and removed for you – so no work required from you!

 

Class stalls

Every year each class takes responsibility for running a stall for the Jamboree and these run from 3-5pm. Class reps have been great in taking on stalls for each of your classes so please support them by offering some time on the day to cover a stint on the stall. That way it’s shared out, avoiding one person being tied up and unable to enjoy the event. So, please find your class rep and offer to help if you can (details of all the Class Reps are on Classlist and you can message them there too).

 

Plea for sweetie jars & donations

We are also of course, seeking donations of sweetie jars and donations for prizes for the Tombola, these can be brought directly into school.

If you own or work for a business which could donate or sponsor a prize for the raffle or one of the competition stalls please contact Carl Wright or Karen Lister - either in the playground or via Classlist.

The Summer Jamboree is a great event for both kids and parents and a fab fundraiser for the school so any and all support in making this happen is greatly appreciated!

Movies – Peter Rabbit – Wed 10th April 3.30pm – 5.30pm

Deadline for signing-up Monday 8th April - 6 pm

This event is being managed solely through Classlist and unfortunately there will be no admission to children not on the event list. The reason for the change to procedure is twofold; primarily for safeguarding, it is really important the event list is accurate and also administrative reasons, as a large amount of volunteer time is spent unnecessarily chasing payments and updating spreadsheets. So please just log on to Classlist.com or use the Classlist app to purchase tickets in the events section.

Year 6 Hoodies

Today is the last day for payments and orders. Thank You Jo Beagley and Miss Mansfield for organising the hoodies!

Save the Date - Quiz night – Friday 17th May 7.30pm

Hosted by DJ legend Alex B Cann, fuelled with fish and chips and a licensed bar. Form a team and take on pals, pit yourself against the teachers team, or just come along join a team and meet some new folk, tickets to released on Classlist.

Plea for help - Summer Jamboree – 22nd June (fingers crossed)

We are trying to get a group together to assist with running this event. There are a number of jobs to be done to make an event like this happen - some big, some small, but all important - so if you feel you contribute in anyway at all it would be greatly appreciated so either grab Karen Lister in the playground or email sec.pta.ojs@gmail.com . This event raised an awesome £3000 pounds for the school last year and was great fun for both families form the school and the wider community. It would be a real shame if we didn’t have the support to run it.

Handy with tools? A Carpenter? Please can you spare 2 hours of your time?

If anyone has carpentry skills and would be OK to help with building the frame for the Knaresborough Bedrace, please can you let Viv Melville know. Miss Joseph and the children have put in a massive effort with very grand designs for the bed this year, podium potential for the best dressed bed! We just need a couple of volunteers who are handy with tools to help us out.

New Playground Equipment

On Monday 18th February, Mrs Evans and Mr Wright (from the PTA) came into school for a special assembly all about playground equipment. The PTA have worked hard to raise money for brand new equipment which has made our playtimes even more fun and enjoyable. We have had: tail balls, jumbo dominoes, footballs, sponge balls, bean bag catchers and catch cups all added to our collection of equipment. We asked some children what they thought of the new equipment:

 

‘The new equipment is super because there’s more for everyone to play with.’ Ezekiel Y4

‘I like the bean bag catchers the best because they’re challenging.’ Hannah Y6

‘It’s really fun. I like the tail balls the best!’ Ruby Y3

 

We hope that the children continue to enjoy the equipment.
