Eid Celebrations at OADV

The Academy continued Eid celebrations yesterday with having a disco, a cinema afternoon, a dhol player to welcome children into assembly and to top it off, an ice cream for all our families at the end of the day.  We hope you had a lovely Eid.

Reception meet and greet

On Thursday 24th May at 4:30pm we invited our new starters that will be joining us in Reception from September 2018.

This brief meeting offered our parents/carers an excellent opportunity for to meet with Mr Pape our Academy Principal and our Head of Primary, Mrs Michels. 

At the meeting, we explained some of our key expectations around attendance and behaviour and detailed how our induction programme will work both before summer and in September when we start the new academic year. We also mentioned how we will also be looking at ways for you to best support your child during this very important transition period.  

Our Head Boy Kasib Ali and Head Girl Somaya Masood also addressed our families with a speech and a powerpoint presentation.

Farming around!

As the finale to their ‘Living Things’ topic, children in Reception have come to the Academy dressed as farmers.  

Wedding Bells

The Academy is in full swing with celebrations surrounding the upcoming Royal Wedding.  We had a wonderful picnic lunch in the sunny outdoors today.  A typical British sandwich lunch with jelly and cake for afters.  Children have also been busy in arts crafts making bunting, baking scones and Victoria Sponge cake.  KS2 children have also been involved in debates and playing British Games.
