Oakfield Primary Academy

We are proud of ourselves. We are proud of each other. We are proud of our community.

After what seems like the longest time away we have ever had, we are really looking forward to welcoming you back into school in September! Whether you are in Deers or Octopus Class, we are all looking forward to seeing you and hearing all about your summer. 

 

Reading books will be sent out on  Monday and will be collected in on Friday. This is to allow time for books to isolate before they enter a new household. We ask that you read with your child a minimum of three times a week and fill in your reading log. the more you read, the more raffle tickets you win!

PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Children will need to bring in their clean PE kits for this day.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information, photos and much more! 

Deers class teacher is Miss Robinson supported by Miss Young.

Octopus class teacher is Miss Hudspith supported by Mrs Holloway.

Welcome to our new normal for the new week. Miss Robinson and Miss Hudspith will be emailing out home learning packs to you each day for your children to complete. We ask that you keep all the work you do safe so we can collect it in once we are back at school. 

Daily videos will be posted on the Oakfield Primary Academy - Rugby Facebook page. These will include morning messages, phonics lesson, guided reading inputs and afternoon messages. We cannot wait to see what you think.


Monday Morning Message from Miss Hudspith

There are many ways which you can support your child at home. Below are some useful websites for parents. 

 

To practice our Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (SPAG) knowledge we enjoy playing Karate Cats. This game has a range of questions about SPAG and you can earn points to build your Dojo. You can also try "Challenge mode". What's your highest score?

There is also now a maths version which tests your skills in all 4 operations.

We also enjoy playing a range of games using 100 Square Splat. Does your number have 5 tens? Or maybe it has 7 ones? We are very good at guessing your number by asking yes or no questions. Ask us to show you!

Important Information about SATs

As you may be aware, at the end of year 2 your child will be sitting the National SATs tests which test children to see if they are meeting the expectations of the year 2 curriculum. These consist of 2 reading papers, 2 maths papers and a spelling, punctuation and grammar test. These will be taken during the school day, by class teachers and in small groups.

In order to make sure that your child is as best prepared as they can be, we have included a SATs pack for you to have a look at.

Here are some ways you can help prepare your child for these tests in May:

  • Look at previous SATs tests on

  • Read the “What will my child learn in year 2?” document to better understand where your child should be
  • Read the Punctuation guide for parents to prepare for the SPAG test
  • Read with your child 3 times a week, talking about the book
  • Ensure your child practices their spellings every week

There are practice workbooks available in a range of shops. We recommend CGP books as they are the most up-to-date. These can be brought through the school or by visiting this website:
