Well we’ve all had a very strange half term, but despite this, the children have been learning lots of new things and making some fantastic items both in school and at home.
We have created a slide show for you to enjoy, to showcase all the fantastic work the children at Woodland Primary have done.
This term Squirrel class topic is London and Owl class topic is the Anglo Saxons. We have had some fantastic creative items made both from the children doing online learning at home and also by the keyworker children in school.
Watch out for more work to be put on the Blog next week!
Luke and Lewis made this fabulous cake of Queen Elizabeth with their mum and dad as part of their home learning topic on London. Keep the London themed food coming Squirrels! They also made ladybird cakes after reading ‘What the Ladybird Heard on Holiday’. Lewis informed everyone that a group of ladybirds is called a ‘loveliness’! Did you know that? What a lovely name!
Matilda’s London home baking were biscuits of Big Ben and a London bus, fantastic!
Nursery have been making construction items, a fabulous bridge was built, but some slight adjustments had to be made to the story as they didn’t have a goat – so they improvised and used a horse instead! Wonderful work.
Great artwork and models made of the London guards and Tower of London ravens
In school the children made Chelsea buns. They looked delicious! Yum, Yum
Well it’s been a strange old week, thank you for bearing with us!
The snow at Woodland has provided lots of educational experiences and learning for both our keyworker children in school and for our children at home . We have had lots of masterpieces created! But the ‘Creme de la Creme’ was the hot chocolate at the end!
What a busy couple of week it’s been at Woodland!
Since the start of December school has been Christmas ready with our tree and decorations for all to enjoy. A special thank you to Doris and Lenny for making us a beautiful new Nativity scene.
This year our Christmas play – A Very Special Christmas and the Journey, followed the 2020 trend and went online! Thank you for all your lovely comments we are so pleased you enjoyed it.
Last Wednesday we all had a delicious Buffet Christmas Lunch made by our fantastic school cook Karen Yum, Yum! It was a lovely treat and we all had great fun eating and listening to Christmas songs together with our bubbles.
Squirrel class made beautiful Christmas cards to send out to everyone who usually enjoys our singing at the Woodland Village Hall luncheon club.
Wednesday was party day and we had lots of exciting games. The children played in their bubbles and it was lovely to see how well they all help each other to share the fun. Santa sent a surprise video and presents for all the children and then we enjoyed a party feast!
Friday was ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ and we all enjoyed our last day in school before Christmas and finished the afternoon off watching Christmas films!
We have had a fabulous term in spite of the strange circumstances and we would like to wish you all a happy, healthy Christmas break.
See you all next year!
Co-op Local Community Fund
We would like to say a ‘Huge Thank You’ to all the customers and staff at Cockfield Co-op for raising the fantastic sum of £1244.13 for Friends of Woodland School, through your Local Community Fund.
The money has been used to install some outdoor gym equipment for our school and pre school children to enjoy. They are all having lots of run on the equipment and keeping fit and healthy too.
The children took part in various activities and lessons explaining the importance of Remembrance Day. They made stained glass poppies with cellophane and created a window display which as you can see looked fantastic. On Remembrance Sunday Mrs Denham took our school poppy wreath to Woodland Memorial and on Remembrance Day at 11.00am we all took part in a 2 minute silence on the school playground to remember the brave soldiers who gave their lives to make ours better.
At lunch time our lovely cook Karen made all the children and staff a poppy cupcake which were both amazing and delicious!
The children enjoyed an afternoon of Halloween fun today. They came dressed in costumes, did lots of craft activities and had fun dancing to Halloween songs.
Everyone at Woodland hopes you have had a lovely summer despite the difficult circumstance we are all dealing with. We have had a great couple of few weeks back at school and the children are enjoying being in their new classes and seeing all of their friends. Our new reception starters have settled in well and are already getting used to the school day.
Over the Summer the wildlife camera has been very busy. Lots of rabbits, 3 woodland cats on the prowl, a frequent snuffling from our local hedgehog and 3 very special visitors, fox, stoat and badger!
