Welcome to Our School!

Welcome to our school website which we feel offers a small taster of what life is like here at The James Oglethorpe Primary School.

We are a good school that is growing and are at an exciting time in our development. At the heart of everything we do is the school community and the people who work together to make this: children, staff, parents and governors. We believe that, by providing a school in which everyone feels secure, knowing that they matter and are cared for, we create an atmosphere where learning is encouraged and developed, ensuring our children always strive to do their best.

Class 2 Tower Making

admin on: School Blog:

Class 2 had a go at making the tallest and strongest towers they could using straws and masking tape.

Our budding engineers and architects of the future used their maths shape and space skills to good use.

The children had to work together and once completed evaluate their tower.

Well done to them all.

Mathletics Award Winners

In assembly today, we were delighted to present Mathletics certificates to those children throughout the school who have achieved their silver award on the Mathletics website. We were also particularly pleased to present Evie Green, Helen Wilkens, Chelsea Bastick and Dylan Teece with a gold certificate which is a fantastic
Mathletics is a web based maths site which the school has subscribed to. Children can log on and are awarded points for each correct answer they get. If a child gets 1000 points or more in a week they are awarded a bronze certificate which you can print should you wish. Once the children have earned 4 bronze certificates they will be awarded a silver certificate; the silver certificates will be printed off by us and awarded to them during a whole school assembly. Ultimately, they can achieve a Gold award. We know that when children use Mathletics on a regular basis, their speed of recall, enjoyment and confidence in maths grows and we would encourage all children to use this site.
All children should have their own log-in, but if they have forgotten theirs, please contact your child's teacher.


Paramedic Pam's visit to Reception

admin on: School Blog:

We had a very special visitor in Reception this week. Paramedic Pam came to visit and taught us all about her job and the vehicles they use. The children had great fun, trying on her uniform, bandaging each other and learning how much medicine to give. We'd like to thank Pam (Aiden's mum) for volunteering to speak to the children and for a very informative and fun session.
