Pebble Painting! 


Dear Pupils / Parents,


During the lockdown we have been supporting the NHS and Key Workers by clapping every Thursday evening as well as raising money. So at OLSB we have decided to show our appreciation for the NHS / Key Workers and anything else that we have been grateful for during this difficult time.


The Corona Cobra is a snake made out of the pebbles that we have found on our walks or in our garden. We would like you to paint or draw a picture to show our care for the NHS/Key Workers/ or someone who has helped you during this tricky time, you can add a message to the back of the pebble if you like. We will create a long snake of all of our messages and pictures. Please drop the pebble to your class reading box on one of the up and coming Mondays during the book swap.

Many Thanks

Home Learning Timetable

Home Learner of the Week

Home Learning W/C: 20th April 2020


Dear Parents / Carers, 

We hope that you had a restful Easter. This term we will add the work in a slightly different format - each day there will be a daily PowerPoint for all the work that needs to be completed for that day. This may help to keep the routine and structure. The work will stay on for the duration as we understand that your child may not be able to complete the work on that day due to your work commitments. I have added mathematics tasks to a new online maths learning platform - my maths. Please email for your child's individual log in. If you have any other questions please just email - 


We thank you for your continued support. 

Mrs Cogan and Miss Farrell
