This month the news from Woodchurch CE Primary School is brought to you by Brunel Class (Year 4)

Our Year 6 class recently visited Canterbury Cathedral for the Cathedral Schools' day, which included an insight into some of the workings of the Cathedral.

On Wednesday 1st November and Tuesday 7th November we held 'open school' sessions to show prospective parents of next year's Reception children our wonderful school.  Our Year 6 children gave guided tours of the school and answered all their questions.  We also had our parents' evenings on Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th November, giving parents time to look at their children's work and talk to staff about progress.  These were both well attended.

We have started our 'Come and Learn' sessions, with Da Vinci class inviting their parents to share an amazing learning experience with them.  Other classes will also be inviting parents to 'Come and Learn' with their children in the lead up to Christmas.

Reverend Chris came and shared the message of Remembrance with the children and then some children attended the Sunday Remembrance Service and laid a wreath on behalf of our school.

November 17th brought a non-school uniform day for Children in Need, which for some children is their favourite day!  We had a large bouncy castle in the hall and in small groups we had to complete as many bounces as possible in a minute.  This was a sponsored event, raising funds for Children in Need.  Later that day, Homewood School came to present their 2017 Dance Dash, an event enjoyed enormously by the whole school.

Our Christmas Nativity and other Christmas activities are starting to get underway and we look forward to telling you all about them in the next newsletter.
