Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

One of our Year 8 students, Amina Hasan is doing something incredible this weekend.  After careful deliberation, Amina has made the charitable decision to cut her long hair and donate it to the Little Princess Trust.  

Amina has been a student at Oasis Academy Don Valley since 2015 and has always had long locks.  Will she be unrecognisable without the long hair after this weekend??

Amina has already had over £300 in donations and is now seeking your help in raising more money for this wonderful cause.  If you would like to donate, no matter how small, Amina has left her sponsorship form with Main Reception.  We hope you can support her and this worthy cause.

Don't worry, it won't be Mr Pape that cuts her hair!  We can't wait to see what she will look like #proudtobeOADV #littleprincesstrust 

Deutscher Morgen

Since September, students at OADV have been learning German and on Wednesday 2nd October we hosted a German Breakfast event to celebrate European Languages Day.  This was a great opportunity for families and students in years 6, 7 and 8 to join together to celebrate language learning.  We all enjoyed a typical German breakfast of crusty rolls, German black bread, cheese and sliced meat.  The black forest gateau was particularly delicious and it was lovely to see students trying the different foods.  Families were taught the German words, or body parts, and learnt how to sing ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’ in German.  There was also an opportunity to take part in a treasure hunt to learn more about German life and culture and staff were really impressed by the enthusiasm of all pupils. Many thanks to the families who attended the event and joined in with the activities #proudtobeOADV

Year 3's Big Top Circus

Year 3 enjoyed a circus day with Circus Sensible where they learnt how to spin plates on sticks, juggle, hula hoop and do many more amazing circus tricks.

Bright Smiles

Class Ahlberg were visited by a student who wanted to teach them about looking after our teeth. They had a go at brushing teeth with toothbrushes and toothpaste. They also learnt about how to look after our teeth and sorted food and drink into those that help our teeth and those that might cause cavities

Living Things

As part of Year 5's science topic of Living Things, they visited Manchester Museum. They explored different plants and animals, comparing their life cycles and how they are different or similar. They found out that some plants and animals have changed over time because of the environment around them, leading some to become extinct!
