Exciting events in the first couple of weeks………………report from Miss Clare
On Tuesday 27th April, 9 Year 6 children were invited to take part in the TSF (Thomas’s Schools Foundation) Reading Competition.
Miss Clare and her radical readers set off for Thomas’s Kensington Primary School for the afternoon. With a hop, skip and a jump, we joined the other three schools for some light refreshments before heading into the theatre and taking our seats. The competition started and Oxford Gardens took the lead in the the 1st round. The 2nd round was incredibly hard for all of the competitors but our team held their own and gave a good shot at the answers. With our brows sweating in excitement and anticipation, we powered through the 3rd and 4th rounds, ending our wonderful afternoon at 3rd place with 900 points (we were very close to the team who took second place at 1000 points).
It was a wonderful achievement for Oxford Gardens and we thoroughly recommend reading the books that we had to read to answers the questions (Ned’s Circus of Marvels, The House on Hummingbird Island and Fizzleburt Stump – The Boy Who Ran Away from the Circus). Well done Jonah, Freya, Fatma, Nour, Daniel, Iona, Ahmed, Verity and Jaida for your commitment and confidence throughout the competition, you were a credit to our school!
