Vision for PSHE
At Oatlands Junior School, we aim to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children. We want to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they already face and for adult life. We will provide them with information about keeping healthy and safe, emotionally and physically. We will encourage our children to understand how all actions have consequences and how they can make informed choices to help themselves, others and the environment.
What a busy time we have had! Enterprise Week has been full of activity and has been an incredibly enjoyable week, learning more about our theme of 'Healthy Body, Healthy Mind'. Our key aim has been developing skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work. The children have had the opportunity to consider the role money plays in all our lives, how to manage their money effectively, and how to make money through an enterprise. Key skills of teamwork, communication, resilience, flexibility, delegation and patience have all been practiced this week.
This all came together for Enterprise Afternoon on Tuesday 11th June when all the children ran their own stalls. There was an amazing buzz around the school. All the money raised this year is going towards Active Play equipment. We look forward to hearing how much we have raised soon.
Be a Wellspring Hopper in the Big Brain Bounce
A big thank you to everyone who brought in some money for our Big Brain Bounce on Tuesday 9th April. Also thank you to those who lent us one of their space hoppers. We have raised a great amount for Wellspring, the mental health charity we have chosen to support this term. We had so much fun bouncing around on space hoppers with our class. Even some of our teachers had a go! We will be giving the money to someone from Wellspring at the start of the summer term when they come into one of our assemblies. This event put everyone in a good mood.
A big thank you for your support this year for Comic Relief. All the children looked fantastic in their red outfits today! We raised £239 selling red noses and £281.41 making a grand total of £520.41.
Red Nose Day 2019
On Red Nose Day itself, we would like the children to come to school wearing something red, with a donation of £1. We will be filling that Friday with fun; the children will be able to take part in activities in class during the day.
During health week, as well as thinking about how to keep our bodies healthy, we thought about how to keep our minds healthy. In Flamingos class, we thought about what we can do if we are ever feeling stressed or anxious and made our own stress-relieving cubes.
Anti-Bullying Week - The Power of One!
Fire Safety Assembly
On Wednesday 26th September, Blue Watch from the North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service came to give us a talk about fire safety in our homes. They led a very interesting assembly for the whole school. Two of the key messages they talked about were the importance of fitting a smoke alarm at home and checking it regularly and encouraging children to make a fire action plan with their family, so that everyone in the house knows how to escape in the event of fire. A really informative assembly!
