Open Morning – Friday 7th April
We are looking forward to welcoming you into school between 9.30 a.m. and 11.30 a.m. to see the work that the classes have been doing during our planned RE week.
Year 5 and 6 took part in a Swimming Gala at the Oratory School on Wednesday this week. We won all but one of the medley races and the group displayed excellent teamwork and they encouraged each other really positively. A parent from another school commented how smart the Woodcote pupils looked in their PE kit which was good to hear. We were second overall which was an improvement on last year. Olympic Value of courage went to Lily Assadi.
Year 3 and 4 High Five Netball Tournament
On Thursday this week the team played in their first tournament since the club started. After a slightly tentative start their confidence grew with each game. The matches were all very close and the team won 1, lost 4 and drew 1. Olympic Value for improvement went to Eleni Southby.
Summer Term – Running/Athletics club
This will start on Tuesday May 2nd. Thursday’s Mile Club will be held on the School playground. This means you won’t need to fill in a permission slip.
