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!
