Year 5 Viking Day

As part of our Vikings topic this term, we will be having a Viking day. This will form our marvellous middle before we start exploring water and rivers in our topic.

Our Viking day will be on Wednesday 17th October. We would like the children to dress up for the day as a Viking, this can be a traditional Viking from the farm or a Viking warrior.

Our Viking day will involve role-playing a farmer at a market, trading with others, exchanging money and working out the best value for their cattle, as well as warrior feuds and a traditional Viking burial.

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.
