Oakhill link with Barnsley FC

25 Feb 2020   |   Lisa McCarthy   |   Oakhill Primary Academy


Schools from across Barnsley have been working with the Primary Enterprise Challenge team to find young entrepreneurs for 2020. Oakhill rose to the challenge and took part in this football themed competition.

Working in teams of six, they created a plan for an event to take place at Oakwell Stadium later this season. The Y6 children had to work out how to spend their budget, how to market their ideas and then present their ideas to a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style panel of judges!

The children created their business models for match days at Barnsley FC. They thought of everything – merchandise, logos and even mascots! ‘Oak Events’ were eventually crowned winners after their award-winning pitch to the judges. We look forward to seeing how Jack, Matthew, Hollie, Gracie and Esme get on in the South Yorkshire Finals in April! An amazing day was had by everyone- well done Y6!

Dearne FM class of the week!

Every week the Dearne FM Street Team and DJ Matt Foister visit a different school in either Barnsley, Penistone or Dearne Valley. They chat with pupils, visit their classrooms and make one lucky winner the class of the week. This week was the turn of Y2 at Oakhill Primary Academy. Mrs Wattam’s class can be heard on the radio and have been lucky enough to receive some goodies too! Juniper class are great role models and are such a fabulous class!
