Thursday 1st March – World Book Day 2018!


World Book Day takes place this year on Thursday 1st March 2018 and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child make the most of this special occasion.

World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child receives a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more.

You can find out more about the books at http://www.worldbookday.com/books . Your child’s token is enclosed and can be redeemed at most UK bookshops. Please help your child to use it on or around World Book Day by visiting your local bookshop (if you need help finding one, visit booksellers.org.uk/bookshopsearch).

Here are the many fantastic ways Oakmere will be celebrating this World Book day:

  • Dressing up as our favourite book characters and donating £1 to BOOK AID INTERNATIONAL- this is a charity who aims to change lives through reading by using the money to send books to schools, universities and hospitals in disadvantaged communities.
  • Scholastic Book Fair (Infant Hall after school 1st and 2nd March) come and use your £1 off voucher!
  • A special World Book Day themed lunch if your child usually has school dinners

World Book Day is always one of my most favourite events in the school calendar and I cannot wait to see this years amazing costume efforts!

Celebrating the Centenary of World War One with costumes and an exhibition

Thanks to Mrs Kaye our history subject leader, all the classes have been finding out more about the time of The Great War 1914-1918 and discovering how much the past alters compared with our modern lives.  There have been some wonderful outfits on show today and many thanks go to all staff, children and staff for getting into the spirit of things. We look forward to seeing many of you at our exhibition from 3pm this afternoon, where you will be able to see the work completed by the children across the school in the KS1 Hall. We do hope you enjoy it!

WE ARE OPENING TOMORROW – BUT KS2 CONCERT CHANGED TO 2pm WEDNESDAY

Although the forecast suggests temperatures are going to plummet, we are going to open school tomorrow. Mr Viala has cleared a pathway to the main door in both buildings and we ask that all children are dropped to the entrance halls where staff will meet them to help them change out of their wellies ( please bring a plastic bag to put them in!).

The roads are still very icy so please be very careful on your approach to school.

To prevent people travelling on dark, icy nights, we are moving the KS2 concert to Wednesday afternoon. It will start at 2pm. We know this may cause annoyance for working parents but we have no other evenings free and we have to put the safety of performers and audience first. We do hope you all understand.

See you tomorrow!

SCHOOL IS CLOSED MONDAY 11th DECEMBER

We all woke up to some beautifully snowy scenes but by this afternoon, my thoughts turned to whether or not access to our school through the narrow streets of Oakmere estate would be possible and whether or not the site would be safe enough for the staff and children on Monday morning.

After speaking to the heads at Wroxham, Cranborne and Ladbrook schools, we all agreed that the roads around Potters Bar were not worth risking, in light of the forecast of more snow Monday morning. The other schools soon followed suit! This is never an easy decision and I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

Huge thanks to my on the scene staff members and all the parents who have shared the news far and wide that we will be closed tomorrow.

We are hoping to have made the site safe for Tuesday and will let you know through the same channels as today. If anyone wants to help Paul Viala with path clearing tomorrow, I am sure he will be grateful for any extra pairs of hands.

When we return, it is likely that we will allow those that want to, to play in the snow on Tuesday but only if they come with appropriate changes of clothes and shoes. Please bring all children to the main entrances to both buildings, as the main pathways will be gritted and the safest way into school.

The KS2 concert is likely to be postponed. Texts will be sent out when we have returned to school.

Have a safe and fun time in the snow –  make sure your homework is complete and take some time out to read a book and recall your Magic 10 number facts.

Festive Family Fun

What a wonderful Mistletoe Fayre filled with fun, cheer and a lovely sense of community. As always it was lovely to see many of our ex pupils and their families return and to welcome our newer families into our Oakmere traditions. A huge amount of work goes into the preparation and performance of the event and  huge thanks must go to Natasha, Eve and the PTA committee for another triumphant event; Paul Viala and Lena Hammond for  the additional decorations; Lynda Buckley and the choir for their entertaining performance; the staff and children for their delicious and creative contributions and of course Santa and his Elves for making their way to Oakmere this evening. I think it’s because he heard just how wonderful Oakmere children are, he just had to stop by and say “Ho Ho Ho!”

Next week the whole school are reading and producing work from a storybook called “The Santa Trap” and the following week we will be enjoying entertaining all our parents and carers at our Key Stage concerts. It is highly unlikely ( due to staff numbers) that we will be able to provide a creche for these events, so please start making alternative childcare arrangements.
