Y1 visit the Railway Museum at York

Our Year 1 children broke a St Oswald’s record this week by travelling the furthest by any class for a day trip! Our mini explorers completed a 160 mile round trip to York, via the National Railway Museum.

The children had such a fantastic time meeting British Transport Police officers at Central Station and then travelling at high speed on the mainline train.The children not only had the chance to get up close to a replica of George Stephenson’s rocket, but also Tim Peake’s spacecraft!

Oliver – Karate King 🥋!

We just wanted to share with you Oliver’s award he received at Karate tonight. He received Mini Dragons Student of the Year for his group voted by the teaching staff from Burns School of Black Belt. Well done Oliver!

Y1 Technology Tinkerers!

Year One had a very exciting morning investigating technology. The big question was, how is technology used in our local environment? The children spent time tinkering with the technology before starting their investigations. By the end of the lesson, the children could list a wide range of technology, recall lots of different uses and one group wrote instructions of how to use our new electronic signing in system. Fantastic work!


Year One Homework Trip – 26.1.18

As a reward for completing their Autumn term homework, Year 1 joined their fellow ‘hearties'( Reception and Year 2) for a morning of swashbuckling fun at Pirate’s Cove soft play. The St Oswald’s landlubbers had a fantastic time and were a credit to the school.


KS1 Homework Trip – 26.1.18

Well done to all of those children in Key Stage One who met the termly homework target and a special well done to all the parents and carers that supported with this.  As a treat to those children and recognition of all of their hard work and resilience towards their homework they got the opportunity to slide, jump and run their way around Pirates’ Cove.  Well Done to you all!

Year One STEM COOL Afternoon

Year 1 have had a super STEM week! Their work this week focuses around a challenge, to fix an umbrella so that Aunt Stella can go to the Queen’s garden party. The children investigated the umbrella, the different materials they could use to fix and join. They also tested, fixed and finally evaluated their results. The children also made videos communicating their results. The best part was definitely sharing with the parents and carers during our COOL afternoon.


Phoebe’s Christmas

Phoebe wanted to send a few pictures in from over Christmas, we didn’t really get up to much but the most important thing was spending time together with family & for the 1st time ever Phoebe got to play out in the snow over Christmas so I’ve just included some family shots from Christmas day & of Phoebe enjoying the snow…simple things.
