U11 Boys District Cup Finalists!!


A massive well done to our Under 11 boys who have reached the final of the District Cup.

Last night the boys kicked off the evening with a very difficult game against Greenfields, we always knew this was going t be a tough game, which ended goalless but was a well-deserved point.

Second match we played Oxon, the boys showed great strength, matching them all over the park, and came away with a well-deserved victory winning 2-0.

Then we went onto play a strong St Georges team, from the first whistle you could tell the boys were up for the occasion and dominated the game coming away with a 2-1 victory.

Our last game in the group stage saw us dominate from start to finish beating Mereside 2-0.

Four great team performances set us up for an exciting semi-final against St Giles.

The game was always going to be tight, with end to end action, the boys were determined to get revenge after last seasons heart break losing to them in the final, with minutes left on the clock a superb save from Ben meant we could counter attack and score a great team goal to win the game 1-0.

 

The boys will now play Mount Pleasent in the final – on Friday 11th May at Shrewsbury Sports village, time TBC.

Well done boys we are so proud of you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Goodbye from Mrs. Kearney


A huge thanks to everyone in the Oakmeadow CE School community for giving me such a wonderful send off at the end of my career. My retirement assembly was truly beautiful and it was a real pleasure to hear from all the children and to receive their wonderful pictures, posters, cards, memory books and bumble bees! I will treasure them all. The morning was made even more memorable because many Bumblebee parents were there and stayed on afterwards for a little tea party. Thank you to every one of you for taking the time to share with me. The gifts I have received from staff, children and the school community have made me feel very special. I think I will be wearing my bangle full of charms for a long time to come, the roses will be planted soon and we plan to visit our first National Trust property next week in Cornwall.

 

I know I leave Oakmeadow at a good time, with such a strong leadership and teaching team. They will have all my support in the years to come.

 

Many thanks and very best wishes to you all,

 

Cheryl Kearney

 

Mufti day – Thursday 22nd March


On Thursday 22nd March we would like to have a mufti day, in support of a family in our community who have recently lost their house and belongings.  All money raised will go to the family in a hope it gives them the opportunity to have a family day out.  All donation are greatly appreciated.

Half marathon challenge week 2 – the muddy mile


On Friday we completed our second mile for our whole-school half cumulative half marathon challenge.  Despite the elements, we successfully navigated a muddy field in order to show that living in Britain, we cannot let weather dictate how active we are!  It was great to see the children take the safety warnings on board and understand that this is a collective and supportive challenge to push ourselves and show resilience, even if we do not find it easy.  As Mr. Ostermeyer preaches at Junior Parkrun, ‘it is a run, not a race’, and the children were a credit to themselves and our school in how they navigated the course sensibly.  We do appreciate your support and patience in this.  Fingers crossed that Spring finally appears sometime soon.  However, to meet our challenge before the event itself on 17th June, we will need to be completing a mile each Friday, so please send in a change of footwear and even a change of clothes that can be changed into afterwards.  Whilst even the Shrewsbury 10k was cancelled this weekend, we will not be!

This photo was taken before the start of week 1.  United and excited for a fitter and more active Oakmeadow!

Dear Parents/Carers

As we head towards saying farewell to Mrs Kearney and wishing her a happy retirement, we are making some small adjustments to the classes. We are also welcoming back from maternity leave Mrs Williamson.

As you know, Mrs Davies will be moving into Bumblebees and Mrs Williamson will be returning to her role as Nursery manager in the summer term. For next term, only Mrs Williamson will be sharing this teaching role with Mrs Brooks. She is a highly experienced Early Years teacher and regularly works with the team in the Nursery and Reception classes:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday – Mrs Williamson teacher lead

Thursday and Friday – Mrs Brooks teacher lead

We are really excited to see Mrs Williamson back, we will also be seeing Mrs Kearney around school in an advisory capacity and we are all committed to continuing and further developing the outstanding nursery provision we already have at Oakmeadow.

If at any time you have any queries, please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Williamson or Mrs Brooks.

Best wishes

WALK.JOG.RUN.A.MILE


As we are taking part in the HALF MARATHON challenge, we would like to get the whole school involved.  We are asking parents to allow their children to come to school every Friday in their school PE uniform. This will start on Friday 2nd March.

Children who don’t come in their school PE uniform must come in normal school uniform. This should not be classed as a non-school uniform day.  Children who do not adhere to this will be asked to return to normal school uniform.

PE school uniform must consist of:

Black joggers or shorts.

School Logo PE T-shirt or plain white T shirt.

Black sweatshirt or zip top/ hoody.  Plain black please and no big logos or a normal school jumper.

Trainers or pumps (no football boots please).

  • You may want to consider spare footwear (for after the run).

The above will enable the children to go out more efficiently on a Friday afternoon and run/ jog or walk the mile.

Those who have registered and paid the required fee will participate at the Shrewsbury half marathon to complete the event.

Thank you for your continued support in this activity in ensuring that this is not classed as a non-school uniform day.

Mr Ostermeyer and the Leadership Team

U10 Boys County Shield Finalists


A massive well done to our Under 10 boys who have reached the final of the County Shield.

Last night the boys kicked off the evening with a very difficult game against Mereside, from the first whistle you could tell the boys were up for the occasion and dominated the game coming away with a 2-1 victory.

Second match we played a strong team from Newtown, the boys showed great strength, matching them all over the park, and came away with another well-deserved victory winning 1-0.

Our last game in the group stage saw us dominate from start to finish beating Pontesbury 2-0.

Three great team performances set us up for an exciting semi-final against Greenfields Primary School.

The game was always going to be tight, we went 1 nil down after a great goal by Greenfields, the boys heads did not drop they became more determined and went straight up the other end and equalised – we couldn’t of asked for a better response.

With the score all tied at half time the boys knew what they needed to do in the second half, they continued the pressure and got the well-deserved winner.

 

The boys will now play St Giles in the final – date and venue to be confirmed.

Well done boys we are so proud of you.
