Key Stage 2 Egyptian Day

As part of our exciting topic, The Ancient Egyptians, we have arranged for the children to experience an Egyptian day in school on Thursday 16th March.

An Egyptologist will join the Key Stage 2 team for the day and the pupils will take part in several hands-on activities whilst learning what it was like to live in the
Egyptian times. The day will be full of both history and geography of the ancient world. The children will be learning and translating hieroglyphics, learning some Egyptian maths, discussing the beliefs of the Egyptians (gods and goddesses) and finding out more about mummies! There will even be genuine artefacts from the Egyptian times for the children to handle.

There will be no need for pupils to dress up for this day; the children will need to be in school uniform as normal.

As a part of this exciting day, they will be tasting a small piece of pitta bread. This will not be given to any children with related allergies or intolerance. If you have any concerns about this, please feel free to speak to a member of the Key Stage 2 team.

Welcome to Oakley Primary Academy

On behalf of the governors, the staff, pupils I would like to welcome you to Oakley Primary Academy. We are friendly village school with exciting times ahead as we continue along our transition of moving towards a primary school with our first year 5 pupils joining us this year. We are a member of the Sharnbrook Academy Federation and work closely with all of the schools within the Federation, as well as other schools and pre-schools in the local area. This enables us to share expertise, good practice and learn and move forward together. The close links we have with the pre-schools enable us to really get to know the pupils and their families before they join the Early Years.

We are proud to be a ‘Values School’. The values we teach are modelled by all of the team and through our teaching of the curriculum. We are a supportive and hardworking team, where all stakeholders are valued and listened to.

At Oakley Primary Academy we deliver the National Curriculum through a creative curriculum so that learning is creative, fun and meaningful. There is a clear progression of skills in each subject to enable children to grow in all areas and be successful, not only in key assessments, but in daily life.

We work very closely with the families of our school and acknowledge the importance of close home/school links. We have an open door policy and there is always someone available if you wish to talk.

I am extremely proud of our school and of all the hard work from our pupils, families, staff, PTA and governors.

If you would like any further information about our school please make contact via the details on this website.
