Spring Fun

March is here and with it comes spring, a time of transformation and change. Flowers bloom, animals awaken and temperatures slowly rise – meaning there are new things to do and see in Oakley Vale!

This month, we also welcomed World Book Day and Oakley Vale Primary Academy celebrated in style with children dressing up as their favourite words and book characters! The literary fun doesn’t end there either, because World Poetry Day is around the corner on the 21st of March and you can bet that our schools will be taking part in that too. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates, news and pictures.
