Woodcote Primary School


Newsletter week ending 29th April 2016

Ground Force Day – Saturday 7th May 10am-2pm. As Summer time approaches, the school would like to improve the school grounds with the help of as many parents as possible. It will involve some trimming, weeding, planting and clearing of paths. If you would be able to help please let the office know. We would be very grateful for your support. The more the merrier!!


Yr 2 Open Afternoon – parents of Beech Class children are reminded of their African Story Telling Afternoon on Tuesday 3rd May from 1.30 – 3pm.


Yr 3 Open Afternoon – parents of Ash Class children should have received their invitations to the open afternoon for Thursday 5th May from 1.30 – 3pm. It is a chance to come & have a look around at what the children have been doing. Tea, coffee & cake will be on sale from 2.30pm.


Yr 1 & Yr 4 Open Afternoon – All parents of children in years 1 and 4 are invited to join us for an ‘Open Afternoon’ Tuesday 10th May from 1-3pm. The children and teachers would love to have you in class with them; Year 4 will be covering Buddhism in R.E. and Science while Year 1 will be doing Gymnastics followed by a lesson on this term’s topic ‘Out and About’. Tea and coffee will be available.

Star Wars Theme – Aspens would like to invite children to wear a ‘Star Wars’ themed hat at lunch time on Wednesday 4th May.

Aspens are promoting ‘May the force be with you’!! The children can make hats over the long weekend & bring them in on Wednesday to wear at lunchtime if they wish. Please make sure it is possible to eat your lunch whilst wearing your themed hat!!


Aspens Menu Change – on Thursday 19th & Friday 20th May Aspens have swapped the menu so that Fish Fingers & Chunky Chips will be on the menu for Thursday not Friday. The swap is only for these dates. Please check your orders have been changed if necessary. Aspens have also asked that parents check with their children whether they have enjoyed the meal ordered for them. With the new summer term menu from Aspens, we have found a lot of children have not liked the meals ordered for them and therefore eat very little.


Road Safety – Oxfordshire County Council have issued a Parent’s Guide to Road Safety. Please see the attached leaflet for full information


INSET days reminder – please note the 2 INSET days before the end of the summer term. Friday 27th May & Friday 1st July 2016 for staff training. School will be closed to pupil on these days.


‘Hairy Legs’ Fun  Run – please see the attached flier about the ‘Fun Run’ on Sunday 8th May


Sainsbury’s Active Kids – vouchers will only now be available in store until 3rd May 2016. Please collect these for our school and bring them to the Foyer to post in the collection box or post them through our post box. Please do not staple them together. The more vouchers are collected, the more we can spend on additional resources for school. Over the years we have bought playground equipment, such as stilts and skipping ropes, and gym equipment too.
