Woodcote Primary School


Newsletter 10 November 2011

Football – On Monday our Year 5 and 6 football team played their first 7-a-side league game away to Chalgrove Primary School. 


We managed to keep the score to 0-0 in the first half, but in the second half, a slightly stronger performance from Chalgrove saw them come out as 3-0 winners.  It was a good effort for their first game.  Well done to Jack Clark, Harry Hogan, Dawson Powell, Josh Wiltshire, Josh Palmer, Adam Wise, Sam Taylor and Tom Ostridge.


Anti-bullying week – After Maths week this week, next week we will be supporting the National Anti-bullying week.  Children will take part in a range of cross curricular activities and competitions to reinforce the theme and the main message this year ‘Stop and think – words can hurt’.  The school and staff will use this week to review the anti-bullying policy.


On Friday next week we are asking you please to send your child to school wearing something pink or green with their uniform.  This could be a change of sweater or a pair of socks but no hair dye please.  Children then pay 50p which will go towards Children in Need.  If you have any questions, please ask Mrs Bodeker.


Parking – The police have asked us to remind parents that they should not park on the Reading Road opposite the Church Farm Road, as this causes problems for other road users at this junction.  The Parish Council supports this request.


Packed Lunches – Please can we remind you to include spoons 

in your child’s lunchbox if they have yoghurts or pasta as we do not have spare spoons to hand out.


Christmas Fayre Raffle Tickets – With this newsletter you should receive some raffle tickets.  The ‘not such good news’ is that tickets are now 50p each. The ‘GOOD NEWS’ is that you have less books to sell! That means less counterfoils to fill in (and less for me to fold!!) Less tickets printed means a saving of nearly £20. JRS Services are generously sponsoring the printing costs. All prizes, of which there are many, are donated. This means that 100% of the money from ticket sales goes to school funds. If you would be willing to sell more tickets, please put a note in with your returned counterfoils. Thank you, Sandra Farmer.
