Road Safety Day Glow Day

It was lovely to see so many children wearing bright and fluorescent accessories today to mark Day Glow Day and Road Safety Week. The children learned about the importance of safe travel; staying with their adults near roads, the Green Cross Code reminder to “STOP, LOOK, LISTEN AND THINK” and how to “BE BRIGHT, BE SEEN!”

Anti Bullying Odd Socks Day

Lots of us wore odd socks to school yesterday for Anti Bullying Week to symbolise that we are all different in some ways, it’s good to be ourselves, accepting of one another and celebrating difference. Here are some comments from Year 2 pupils talking about what they learned in Anti-Bullying Week: “Step up for yourself and your friends.” “If you see someone being unkind to someone else ALWAYS tell a grown up.” “Don’t stand and watch someone being mean to someone else - don’t ever be a bystander.” “Say no to bullying!”

Happy Diwali!

We would like to wish all of our families who are celebrating a very happy Diwali!

Goodbye Mr Fahie...

Thank you so much Mr Fahie for looking after our school for 21 years! We wish you a very happy retirement and look forward to seeing you when you come back to visit us.

...and Welcome Mr Troullis!


'Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth'

by Oliver Jeffers

All of our children, from Nursery to Year 2, have been inspired by their project on Oliver Jeffers' new book, “Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth.” We have created an exhibition to retell the story. We hope you enjoy looking at our work.

    Oakdale Infant School goes GLOBAL! 


On Wednesday we held our annual Jolly Phonics Conference. This is when we welcome visitors from other countries into our school to meet children and teachers and observe how we teach phonics. This year we had 15 visitors from a variety of countries including Oman, Nigeria, Uganda and Ghana and of course Mr Jolly himself from England.

The visitors were very impressed with the children's behaviour, learning and attainment.  They were also pleased to meet some of our Rights Respecting Ambassadors and tell us about the work of Unicef and the rights of the child in their own countries.

Rights Respecting

Send My Friend To School 


Education is a universal human right. It is the key to a positive future for individual children, whole communities and the wider world. However, due to inequality, millions of children are being locked out of education simply because of who they are and where they live. Access to education and learning is not a level playing field. This needs to change - education should be for everyone. Oakdale Infant School joined the campaign to UNLOCK EDUCATION FOR EVERYONE by creating paper keys.

Unicef Soccer Aid! 

On Sunday 16 June, Soccer Aid for Unicef took place at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge. Over £6.8 million was raised on the night as a star-studded lineup of football legends and celebrities battled it out on the pitch so that more children can grow up happy, healthy and able to play – just like children should.

Oakdale Infant School raised over £200!

Science Club - Week 3

This week in science club we looked at states of matter. We know materials can be a solid, liquid or gas but today we made a Non-Newtonian fluid, which is neither a liquid or a solid. It can be picked up like a solid but oozes like a liquid and it changes its shape to suit the container that it is placed in. After we made our slime we investigated all the different ways we could change the shape of it.  

Science Club - Week 2

This week in science club we learned about magnets. We investigated which materials and objects are magnetic and which ones are not. We also closely observed what happens when you try to join two magnets together.  We found that magnets have a North and South pole. We learned that opposite poles attract and same poles repel. 


Dayglow Day - Be Safe, Be Seen

Science Club - Week 1

This week in science club we learned about where rain comes from. We looked at how clouds are formed and how rain is made.

We then investigated this and made our very own rain in a jar! 

Year Two walk to Wanstead War Memorial 

Remembrance Assembly Friday 9th November 2018

Mrs Linning explained why the image of the poppy is so important and the children marked a two minute silence to remember those lost or injured in war.

Class 2 read us the poem 'On Flanders Field'.

We had a thought provoking Harvest Assembly on Monday with a special visitor - Major Glenda from the Salvation Army

Thank you so much for the Harvest gifts. They will be donated to local homeless charities.

We enjoyed an amazing live performance by Nick Cope - a very talented musician and composer.
