Woodlands Weekly | 22nd April 2022

Welcome Back!

We have loved welcoming back our children and families to school this week, after the Easter break. We hope you all had a restful beak and are ready for another fantastic term of learning!

Please make sure that your children:

  • come to school on time, every day
  • come to school every day in correct uniform
  • bring their book bag to school every day
  • bring their PE kits to school on their PE days.

We also have a number of upcoming festivals and events for our families, including Eid and Orthodox Easter Celebrations. Please return the attendance slip to let us know which day you will be celebrating this on. Children are entitled to one day abesnt from school for these events.

Finally, please make sure that when leaving the school site by the small, padestrian gate that the gate is securely closed behind you and that you do not let any of our children out behind you.

If you have any questions, please pop in or give us a call.


RESPECT Badge Assemblies 🏆

This week we’ve had our next round of RESPECT badge assemblies. We are so proud of all our children, showing our RESPECT values and our Ways of Being. Well done! Remember, you still have two more chances to earn more badges – keep it up!

Staff Ukraine Fundraiser Challenge 👏

Some of our staff are taking on a personal challenge, to run, walk or cylce a number of miles by the 24th of May. You can find out more on our JustGiving page. We’d like to wish all of the staff taking part the best of luck with their challenge.

Year 6 Netball Tournament 🏀

Year 6 joined some of the other local Co-op Academies at Co-op Academy Nightingale on Friday 22nd April for a Netball competition. The children have been working hard, practising their skills and developing their team work. The children showed great teamwork and communication throughout the tournament. Their hard work payed off and won the tournament, bringing the Co-op Cup trophy back to Woodlands! Well done Year 6!
