Oak Class

The children in Oak class have been busy practising numbers to 20 by jumping on them!! After half term we will be doing lots of learning outside the classroom. Please ensure your child has a sun hat and sunscreen in school.

Miss Beesley has asked if you could make sure that all school jumpers and uniforms are clearly marked with your child’s name.


Hornbeam Class

Hornbeam class will be learning outside the classroom during the first week back after half term and are looking for volunteers to join in with gardening and outdoor activities. Miss Ouellette would also love to hear from anyone who could spare an hour to listen to readers.

The results will be in their school report at the end of the year. Beech class are looking forward to a busy and exciting term ahead.

Message from Mrs Hunt regarding the potential closure of Chiltern Edge School

We have been contacted by Chiltern Edge School to ask if we would remind you all of the consultation regarding the future of their school.  I am told that there are currently about 150 Woodcote pupils attending Chiltern Edge School across their year groups.  Here in Woodcote we are in a very fortunate position to be able to choose from a number of secondary schools for our children.  I would encourage you all to read the consultation and answer the questionnaire in order to have your say about the future of one of our local schools.  The information can be found from the following link:


We hope you all have a great half term break.
