Applying English Skills to Topic lessons

At New Oscott Primary School we are trying really hard to apply the skills that we learn in English lessons to our afternoon lessons like History and Geography. Here are some comments from year 2 pupils about the skills they are trying to apply in the humanities subjects.

“You have to use cursive handwriting and punctuation like full stops, capital letters and question marks.”

“I can use exclamation and question marks. I try hard to make my handwriting neat.”

Poppy Hat Competition 2016

Many children from New Oscott Primary School entered a Poppy Hat Competition this year.

On Wednesday 2nd November, three children from New Oscott Primary School attended a judging ceremony at the Birmingham Council House. They had been shortlisted out of over 800 hundred entries and had then made their hats based on their excellent designs.

Well done Rajanveer Marwaha for coming first in your age group and Elijah Nixon and Joe Newman for coming second. We had a fantastic morning and really enjoyed meeting the Lord Mayor.


We celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday with a whole school picnic! We had yummy food, made crowns, sang the National anthem and did a march around the field. What a fantastic day! Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!

Enjoying our birthday lunch in the sun.

Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!

Do you like our crowns?


The children at New Oscott did themselves proud with an impressive collection of food this year for Kingstanding food bank. Each year group sang a song or performed poems in our assemblies led by Reverend Skelton.
