We are Redwood Class and Miss Young is our class teacher. We are a mixed class of year 3 and year 4 children, so we have many friends in different year groups.

Mrs McHugh helps and supports our learning; in class and in small intervention groups, welcomes us at the door in the morning and she also runs two extra clubs that some of us attend. We enjoy learning in a variety of different ways and at the moment we are studying the topic Egypt. We have really enjoyed learning about the different myths and gods, creating pyramid sunset pictures and learning an Egyptian song. Every day we have an assembly which we enjoy going to, especially when we have keep fit for five minutes at the end as a whole school. Some of us get to stand at the front and lead the session. Our play times are really fun too because there are lots of different activities we can do and our Year 4s can help run some of the games for the younger children.

Here are some of the comments the children have said:

“I enjoy this class because everyone is friendly.” Samuel

“I like Redwood class because I have lots of friends in here.” Daniel

“This class is really good fun and has very fun lessons. The teacher always gives you a challenge.” Tilly

“I like Redwood class because we have really fun P.E and learn new things.” Nicole

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.
