Some of the fantastic things we get up to at Mile Oak!

RE in 3HC

As part of their RE study of Judaism 3HC have been creating Sukkah shelters, as building these is part of the Jewish festival of Sukkot. It reminds them of the 40 years that Moses led them through the desert to the Promised Land.

Anti-Bullying Week and Children in Need

Jasmine and Ruby from Year 4 excitedly came to visit Mr Lording this week and earned a Headteacher Award sticker. The girls had created two posters (and a song) in honour of both Anti-Bullying week and Children in Need. We felt this fantastic, creative and thoughtful work needed to be shared with everybody.

Year 6 Remembrance Sewing

Year six were lucky enough to have a visit from Lucy of The Caring Lady Funeral Directors for an afternoon of remembrance related sewing. She arrived well prepared with lots of fabric, needles, thread and patience!

We talked  about remembrance Sunday and why it is important to sit and reflect thinking of all the people who have fought in wars. As the symbol for this day, we each sewed a fabric poppy.  We were lucky enough to listen to war time songs on a record player as we created out masterpieces.

I am sure you will agree the end products are very colourful!


This Autumn, snail sculptures have popped up throughout Brighton & Hove to help raise funds for Martlets Hospice.

All pupils and staff from our school helped to decorate our very own snail who we named Sheldon. Sheldon can be found at The Open Market in London Road and has be visited by many of our children.

Children's Parade 2014

A selection of images from Mile Oak's entry to the 2014 Children's Parade, which kicked off the Brighton Festival in May. The theme was The Arts and our entry was based around Spike Milligan's On the Ning Nang Nong.

Around the School
