Congratulations to Emily, Lucy, Rhaianna-mai and Isaac, who represented Oakfield at the Quays diving competition on Saturday.
The children have begun diving since participating in the ‘core skills’ session run at the school. They were selected for coaching and now all that hard work is paying off as they enter local competitions!
Rhaianna-mai, Isaac, Emily and Lucy came 4th, 6th, 9th and 15th respectively (out of 22) and as a school we came 3rd out of 20. What a fantastic achievement. Well done team!
The children have to train 2/3 times a week and soon they will have an interview to find out if they will take a place on the squad. We are all behind you. Keep up the great work!

Y1&2 had great fun at Marwell Zoo today! The weather held off right until we got back on the coach!
We saw penguins, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, tigers, snow leopards, monkeys and many more animals! We even saw flamingos and ostrich eggs.
Some of us did a workshop about Lemurs as they are opening a new closure for them. Did you know that Lemurs have had to change to fit their surroundings because of the food and weather changes?
We also learnt that cheetahs can run as fast as a car goes on the motorway…but only for 15 seconds and then it has to rest.
It was a really fun day but we were very tired at the end from all the walking!
