Woodcote Primary School


Newsletter 12 June 2014

Year 6 Residential Trip –Willow Class had a fantastic time on their residential trip to the Brecon Becons last week. The weather wasn’t brilliant but it didn’t hamper them from any of their planned activities which included canoeing, high ropes, a very wet hill & waterfall walk, caving, gorge walking, a visit to a castle and a gold mine.


Twitter – Mrs Lecorgne has set up a Woodcote Primary School Twitter account. If you would like to follow our school please find us at: @WPSoxon There will be updates posted throughout term time.


National Grounds Week – thank you to all the parents who donated a variety of things for our large piece of art. The children had great fun creating the piece of art, in the style of Andrew Goldsworthy, on the school field. Photos of the work can be seen in the foyer.

Class Photos– on Tuesday 17th June Tempest are coming into school to take Class Photos. These will take place in the school hall and we remind you that all children will need their school jumpers or cardigans for the photos. Tempest will also be taking the Year 6 leavers photos too.


Curriculum planning – on Tuesday & Friday next week most Teachers will be out of class, meeting to plan the 2014/15 Primary Curriculum due to the Government changes that need to be in place by September. The effected classes will have appropriate cover in place for both days.


Sainsbury’s Vouchers –the closing date for these is Tuesday 1st July 2014. Unfortunately any vouchers received after this time will be of no use, so please turn out your handbags, pockets and purses and bring any vouchers to the school office before 1st July so we can place an order for free school resources.


Messy yoghurts – bring do not include in your child’s packed lunch, the pouch style yoghurts or the ones with tiny peel back tops on as many children find it difficult to open them.Whilst we expect to help the younger children, the more independent children can end up in rather a mess.


PE Kits – a reminder that PE kits should be in school from Monday morning until Friday afternoon every week. Many children are forgetting their kit although will have to take part in their PE lesson anyway wearing their school uniform. This is far from ideal but we are keen for the children not to miss out on PE.
