The sun shone for our gardening morning on Saturday. The Woodland Ground Force team came out in strength to tidy up the outdoor area. The refreshments were enjoyed by all after a lot of work and digging done by our parents, children and staff. Thank you so much!

Coronation Celebrations at Woodland Primary
Coronation Afternoon Cream Tea and Colour Run
Thank you to everyone who supported our Coronation afternoon cream tea and colour run.
It was a fantastic way to celebrate and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! Everyone had a great time.
We would like to thank Friends of Woodland School (FOWS) for purchasing the Colour Run package for the children to enjoy!
Woodland Parish Council for buying every child a commemorative mug and spoon
Lynesack & Softley Parish Council for their kind donation to our celebrations
Mrs Samantha Brown for suppling all the delicious scones and Mrs Lee for helping to serve them
Without this help the children at Woodland Primary wouldn’t have so much fun!
This picture says it all!
The children had a fantastic time last week learning about life and school in Japan from our visitor Richard. They took part in a fabulous range of activities and are now on their way to becoming experts!
Red Nose Day at Woodland
On Friday 17th of March, the Year 6 playleaders organised the highly successful comic relief activities to raise money for people around the world. Although we did not have much time to work with, we managed to lead 5 separate games and competitions alongside (and sometimes competing with) the teachers!
Mother’s Day Afternoon
On Friday the children had a wonderful afternoon sharing activities with mums and other special people. The event began with environmentally friendly craft and Spring bulb planting activities; resources were kindly provided by Durham County Council’s ‘Low Carbon Economy Team’. This was followed by scrumptious cream teas. Of course, the event wouldn’t be complete without the pupils creating cards for their own special people earlier in the day.
World Book Day at Woodland
Thank you to everyone for making World Book Day one of the best yet! Donning a range of fabulous costumes, the children engaged in a range of activities from making ‘guess who’ riddles for well-known characters and voting for their favourite book character in Squirrels, to creating a human library and making expert book recommendations for their classmates in Owls.
Of course, no World Book Day would be complete without time for a good story too!
Durham Environment Award Winners 2023!
Music in Squirrel Class
Year 1 and 2 in Squirrels have been learning to read the notes B, A and G as crotchets and quavers in music this term. This week we made our own compositions using these notes. We even used the repeat and rest symbols. After rehearsing we put on a mini-concert for the class. The new music was greatly received with the audience praising the way the musicians played their new pieces with care.
