Woodchurch CE Primary School News - August 2018

Woodchurch CE Primary School News

The summer holidays have finally arrived, marking the end of another busy year at Woodchurch CE Primary School.

We have enjoyed a variety of activities and experiences over the year.  Our successful shows (the Christmas Nativity, the KS2 summer production of ‘Rock Bottom’ and our annual ‘Woodchurch has Talent’ show) displayed the children’s confident performing abilities and we have also appreciated the musical skills exhibited in assemblies by Buster’s guitar pupils, Mrs Hill’s piano students and the groups taking Rocksteady lessons.  Particular congratulations go to the school choir, who won the annual Tenterden Lions’ Primary School Choir Competition earlier this year. 


Other enrichment days this year included our Maths ‘Number Day’, our ‘Women in Science Day’ and our Geography Day.  Book Week and Active Writing Days have helped children engage with literacy. The children have also had the opportunity of participating in yoga, tennis and fitness workshops and our Year 5/6 Sports Crew have been organising weekly playtime events to help get children active.  February also saw the arrival of Ofsted, who confirmed that we were, yet again, a ‘Good’ school.


We have also been out and about in the neighbouring area, with trips to Port Lympne, Bedgebury Pinetum, Headcorn Aerodrome, Kench Hill Environmental Centre, Kingswood Activity Centre and Homewood School and we recently welcomed a visit from Woodchurch Class from Ashford Oaks Primary School.


I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who has given up their time and energy to make our school a success.  Our parents continue to support their children in school and at home and have donated generously at FOWSA and charity events.  Our volunteer readers have dedicated their precious time to help children improve their reading.  The ‘Open the Book’ team, Reverend Sue and Reverend Chris have strengthened our links with the church through their entertaining Acts of Worship and activity days such as the Shrove Tuesday workshops. Our new team of governors have demonstrated their commitment to helping the school move forward and the members of FOWSA have worked tirelessly, organising events throughout the year in order to raise money for the school, enabling us to buy much-needed resources.


Looking ahead, we wish all those who are leaving us a bright and happy future and we thank you for all your hard work over the years.  Our Year 6s take with them our hopes for a successful and enjoyable time in their chosen secondary schools.  Finally, I wish you all a restful and joyful holiday and look forward to seeing you again in September.


Miss Harrington
