Whole School Events 2023-2024 

There's always lots going on at Oakfield ...

Community Support / Fundraising

Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

We held a coffee and cake afternoon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support with parents and staff donating cakes. 

The School Council worked with Miss Bray and Mrs Light-Rowsell to plan the event, inviting local residents and sorting out refreshments. On the day they were involved with setting everything up, making decorations, welcoming visitors and ensuring the milk was replenished! They raised £216.52!

Reading Celebration

To celebrate the amount of reading our children did over the summer, we held a Reading Celebration. The children chose a story to listen to and then took part in a craft activity. This was followed by an ice lolly and extra playtime!

Harvest Festival

What a fantastic celebration we had for our Harvest Festival! It was lovely to see so many parents join the whole school at Testwood Baptist Church. Thank you to our wonderful children who amazed us with their fantastic harvest themed learning - they were all superstars. A special shout out to our School Ambassadors for leading the celebration. Thank you to everyone who donated to the Basics Bank - we are so lucky to be part of such a generous community.

Remembrance Day

Our KS2 class ambassadors along with our school ambassadors paid their respects at Totton memorial. Our school ambassadors read 'In Flanders Field' followed by the laying of a wreath and a two minute silence. The children were very respectful, particularly when listening to a veteran telling them what remembrance means to him. Back in school, the children had an assembly and shared their poppy art work.

Bedtime Stories

We held our Bedtimes Stories event. Children came back to school in their pyjamas for a story, hot chocolate and biscuit. There was an opportunity to shop at the Scholastic Book Fair and we also had a book swap for adults. Well done to our book token winners!

Children in Need

We came to school in our PJs on Friday for Children in Need (as voted for by the children). There were Pudsey-based activities during the day and the children had a Pudsey cake at lunchtime.

Christmas Activities

We've had lots of Christmas events happening in school. These included: our School Ambassadors choosing the Christmas Tree, making tree decorations, Year R-2 performing their Nativity, Year R's walk to the post box, the whole school watching Beauty and the Beast, making Christingles for our Christingle Service, Years 3 and 4 going to the Christmas Experience at Testwood Baptist Church, a Whole School Film and Christmas Dinner Day.
