Woodchurch CE Primary School News - December 2018

Here is the latest news from Woodchurch CE Primary School.

Last term we celebrated National Baking Week.  Each class did some little treats - Year R made chocolate cornflake cakes, Year 1 and Year 2 made shortbread, Year 3 made Stone Age oatcakes, Year 4 made chocolate rice crispie cakes, Year 5 made rocky roads and Year 6 made a non-baked chocolate cake.  We all really enjoyed this and wish we could do baking every day!

Recently most of the Year 6s took part in cycling proficiency lessons where they were seen cycling through Woodchurch learning how to stay safe on their bicycles. They completed tests and have earned badges and certificates for their skills.

Our first home learning projects of the year have been brought into school.  We really enjoy these as it helps us to learn about different things and we can present what we have learned in many different ways.  In Year 4 we made board games which we really enjoyed presenting to our class and then we were able to play these with our friends.

We held school discos for KS1 and KS2 in October.  These were great as there was a DJ and we had lots of dancing and lots of treats.  The music was very loud and the rainbow lights were amazing.

We were very lucky that Mrs Redmond and her helpers came into school and helped us to make ceramic poppies for Remembrance.  We made them with clay, making the centre separately.  When they were dry, Mrs Redmond came back again and we stuck the bits together and painted them.  We really enjoyed this activity and the poppies look amazing.  We would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to Mrs Redmond and everyone who helped.

On Friday 2nd November the author Grant Koper came to our school.  He read his book ‘The Day Granny’s Knickers Blew Away’ which we enjoyed listening to.  He then led a workshop where he explained how he writes his books.  We were surprised how long it takes!  He signed copies of his book too.

We are now looking forward to all the exciting events, including Children in Need and the Nativity, in the run-up to Christmas.
