Sporting and acting success were shared at Weir’s Weekly Review, this week. I enjoyed watching a video showing lots of goals being scored in Basketball and hearing how Miss Hind was beaten at Badminton by one point! Exercise was the focus for a Scientific investigation, with interesting results. Y6 talked about their ‘Production’ auditions and lots of high quality creative writing from across the curriculum was shared, too. Well done!

There was a Royal Wedding theme running throughout the work that the children were proud to share and discuss in this week’s Weir’s Weekly Review. All children clearly enjoyed learning interesting facts about the Royal Wedding, The Royal Family and the history of our Monarchy.

Our assembly theme for this week is: ‘We’re determined and always try our best’. Today, I listened to pupils who talked about achieving personal goals and working hard to improve and correct their work. Their love for learning really shone through, when they shared work that showed further determination to try challenge and greater depth activates. We were all entertained by a creative piece of lyrical writing, sung to the tune of ‘The Greatest Showman’. Chloe Prytherch put some fun into SATS revision by writing and performing a song about ‘subordinate clauses’. Well done, everyone! Miss Weir

This week, the children were proud to show me work that was based on research they had carried out, using I-pads. Their enthusiasm for sharing the information gathered and the writing they had produced was lovely to see. It was clear that learning fascinating facts and presenting their work beautifully, showed great attitudes to learning. It is this attitude, the Ofsted inspector experienced when speaking with our pupils, which impressed her. Well done! Miss Weir

A superb range of work from across the curriculum was shared with me today. The children were keen to listen to each other and answer questions about their work. They were especially proud of the tricky challenge and greater depth work that they had completed. Very impressive and a wonderful way to end the week. Well done! Miss Weir

There was a cultural feel to this week’s review. We enjoyed watching a video clip of Chloe Brett’s performance of the Haka and hearing Henry Neligan’s conversation in French. The children were engaged when listening to each other’s work, sharing their learning, thoughts and opinions. Well done!

This week the children shared writing achievements from across the curriculum: Science, RE, History and Homework topics. I was impressed at the standard of writing and how much pride all the children take in their handwriting and presentation. The children listened carefully when they each read out parts of their writing, giving superb feedback.

On a personal note, it has been lovely to receive so many messages of congratulations from children, parents, staff and governors on my appointment as Headteacher. The surprise assembly this morning is one that I will remember for a long time! I am looking forward to working with you all in continuing to lead our fantastic school onward and upward. Thank you! Miss Weir
This week, the children were reflecting on Sir Roger Bannister’s achievement of being the first athlete to run a mile under four minutes. They were interested that he didn’t see this as being his proudest moment, but rather his work in neurology. As well as sharing their work from this week, it was wonderful to hear the children talk about their proudest achievements both in and out of school. Always the highlight of my day, meeting children to celebrate their successes on Friday. Well done!

I enjoyed another fabulous meeting with pupils from across the school, who enthusiastically shared their outstanding achievements from this week. Pupils listened carefully to each other, answering questions and giving positive feedback. I was impressed at how the children explained that they were proud of their work because of the ‘learning journey’ they had made, to achieve their final goal. A delightful way to end the week! Well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the children sharing their achievements in the first ‘Weir’s Weekly Review’. Class teachers choose one child each week who has achieved something special. They were very proud of their work and gave each other fantastic feedback. I was impressed at how confident the children were when discussing their learning and what they like the most about Oatlands Junior School. They all enjoyed juice and cake before re-joining their classes for the internet safety workshops. Well done!
