Christmas at Odessa

The children performed the musical nativity ‘Star Shine Star’ to celebrate Christmas. The children really put on a spectacular show and wowed the parents with their acting and singing skills. 

We had a very special visitor come and deliver some gifts to every child at Odessa. The children sang Christmas songs to Father Christmas and asked him lots of questions – they wanted to know his age and how he travelled around the world so quickly! 

The children and staff took part in Christmas Jumper day to raise money for the charity Save the Children. Everyone looked very festive and thanks to our families for raising £75 for this very worthy charity.

Sports Day 2022 

It was wonderful to welcome parents and carers to watch our sports day. The children enjoyed competing against each other in a variety of activities, even the adults took part in a race! The children demonstrated some fantastic balance and coordination skills. It was also lovely to see some partner work during the three-legged race. We felt like proud peacocks. A special thanks to our PE lead Mrs. Codjoe for organising a memorable sports day and to all staff for cheering on the children.

Windrush Day at Odessa 

We were proud to mark Windrush Day by providing a themed lunch to mark this special event. Some children enjoyed tasting familiar foods, whilst others were eager to try some new flavours! 



Jubilee Celebration

At Odessa we celebrated the Queen’s platinum jubilee in style. Children and staff came dressed in red, white or blue and some even dressed up as royalty to mark this historic event! We all had a turn on the bouncy castle and enjoyed an alfresco lunch in the sunshine. Much fun was had by all.

World Book Day

At Odessa we celebrated World Book Day by inviting all children to take part in the potato challenge. We asked the children to create book characters out of potatoes and to be as creative as they like. The characters they created with the support of their families were brilliant. Children and staff also dressed up as book characters.

Mr. Mineiro our Literacy leader planned opportunities for whole year group reading time in the hall creating a cozy, relaxing atmosphere for reading.

Macmillan Big Coffee Morning at Odessa

We were blown away by the generosity of our families and staff – we had some absolutely delicious cakes donated. We sure have some talented bakers amongst us! It was wonderful to see all the adults enjoy themselves. We even had enough cake to have a cake sale after school.

We are happy to announce that we raised 330.00 pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support – so a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this worthy charity.
