Conference PresentationAt OMS we always embrace opportunities to use technology to enhance the learning experience and we were happy to be invited to share our experiences at the East of England Broadband Network Conference – E2BN – on 23rd and 24th June 2015.

Mr Young, Mrs Tiplady and representatives from Year 6 shared the innovative work the school is engaged in using the latest ideas for “21st century interventions”.

Mrs Tate presented four fantastic workshops offering ideas for implementing the new computing curriculum and explaining how schools can use blogging as a learning tool. You can find her workshop presentations  by clicking the links.

VideocoferenceRepresentatives from Year 5 were invited to take part in a ‘FlashMeeting’ workshop which demonstrated the powerful possibilities for using multi-part video meetings to inspire learning. Including a ‘live’ discussion with the trailblazing ‘Enchantress of Numbers’ Ada Lovelace, the children researched and shared their fantastic questions about her incredible life and groundbreaking work.



Record Breakers!

On Saturday 30th May, 323 children from around the country, including 10 lucky children from OMS, descended on the hallowed turf at Twickenham Stadium to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Longest human representation of a mathematical equation.
The equation was created in celebration of a great year for learning maths with Aviva’s Tackling Numbers programme. Aviva Tackling Numbers uses physical number-based touch rugby games integrated with interactive classroom maths lessons to make learning about numbers fun, exciting and rewarding.

The children had to form a gigantic line on the pitch, holding a card with a number or symbol on it, to form the equation. An adjudicator from Guinness World Records® was present to make the record official.

Following the World Record, we also played a game of tag rugby against a school representing Harlequins on the pitch, during half time of the Saracens V Bath Aviva Premiership Final. The children enjoyed a fabulous, once in a life time experience and we are all really proud of them, they represented the school and Northampton Saints brilliantly throughout the whole day. A huge well done and congratulations!

Red Nose Day

Well done to all the children for an absolutely fabulous Red Nose Day. The children looked brilliant in their inventive outfits and the standard of cake baking was outstanding! A huge thank you to all those parents and carers that helped them and well done to the School Council for helping to organise the event. Although the final total is still being calculated we already know that with the red nose sales, mufti money and cake sale collection the children have raised over £1000 for Comic Relief! As always we are extremely proud of all their efforts.
