Cadbury's World - Year 5

As part of our summer topic, a New World, we are organising our fabulous finish for the end of term.

The Mayans were thought to have first come across the cocoa bean, and chocolate. To end our topic we will be visiting Cadbury’s World, in Birmingham. We will be learning about how the Mayans used the cocoa bean, watching a 4D show and then taking a trip around the chocolate factory.

We will be going on Tuesday 2nd July. The cost of the trip will be £20.00.

We aim to leave school at 9am and return by the end of the school day, however if we are caught in traffic a text message will be sent out.

Reply slips must be returned by Friday 24th May

While there is no obligation on the part of parents to contribute to the cost of this activity and pupils will not be treated differently according to whether or not their parents make a contribution, the activity will unfortunately not take place if parents are reluctant to give it adequate financial support.

If any parent would prefer to pay in instalments please contact Mrs Wille in the school office. Cheques should be made payable to Sharnbrook Academy Federation.

Your child will need:

To arrive in school as normal, dressed in school uniform.

A water bottle (named)

Other (suntan lotion applied, hat, light weight coat, sensible shoes)


If your child would like a packed lunch provided by school, please book your child in for SANDWICH on TUESDAY 2nd JULY on the online system. If you are providing your own packed lunch for your child, please indicate on the reply slip below. Please put all food in a named carrier bag so it can be thrown away afterwards.

Welcome to Oakley Primary Academy

I would like to welcome you to Oakley Primary Academy. We are a friendly village school with exciting times ahead as we begin our journey of being part of the newly formed Meridian Trust. We work closely with all the schools within the Trust, 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 our staff members 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 knowledge in each subject to enable children to grow in all areas and be successful, not only academically, 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, and governors.
