We are coming to the end of our year of the big Core Words push here at Oaklands School… and we’re ending the term by focusing on AGAIN!
Postcards, symbols and signs for AGAIN are being delivered to the classrooms and going into the pupils’ home-school diaries. Watch the video below to see how sign AGAIN with your child…
We are also taking some time to reflect on how the year of Core Words has gone… would you like to go over them AGAIN next year? Look out for your feedback questionnaire to tell us what you think! Or drop us a line on Twitter or by commenting on this post.
And AGAIN – a *huge* Oaklands thank you to all the volunteers who have helped with the project… from the behind-the-scenes laminating teams to the stars of our videos… over the year.
Have a lovely summer and get in touch if you need any support!

This week has been Outdoor Learning week at Oaklands.
It’s been a fabulous week full of fires, storytelling under a gazebo, songs, a sound garden in the woods and beech wheelchairs. Some of our pupils were even lucky enough to get a ride along Cramond beach with Obama the pony this morning!
Thanks to our Principal Teacher, Ele, for her fantastic organisation and imagination that has made this week such a wonderful experience for our amazing children and young people!
As ever, lots more photos of the week’s events on our Twitter feed @Team_Oaklands
We are adding multi-sensory storytelling to our fabulous programme of events, with Leo and the Lightning Dragons and a specially developed WILDHOOD themed multi-sensory story. We will have music sessions, art sessions and adapted games. We are excited about the return of Pony AxeS, with Simon and Obama bringing wheelchair accessible pony rides to the grounds of the castle. The Pamiloo will be with us as well, providing fully accessible toileting facilities.
PAMIS have a limited number of day tickets for families of children with profound and multiple learning disabilities so book soon. If you’re interested in finding out more, please get in touch with us here and we’ll get back to you with more information.
