March 2017

We have had another packed term with lots of exciting things going on in school. Our entry point was very exciting, we followed a map to find clues to tell us what our new topic would be. We have spent much of the time outside, investigating our environment. We went on a habitat hunt and found lots of frog spawn in the pond. Some of us even found frogs hopping around!


World Book day was on 3rd March this year. It was so lovely to see all of your children dressed as book characters. We spent the day exploring the wordless book ‘Quest’ by Aaron Becker. The children really enjoyed predicting where the secret door might lead to. We discussed settings and came up with lots of imaginative ideas for the character to get lost in. We ended the day by creating pieces of art which depicted the rainbow of colours found at the end of the book.


It was wonderful to spend a morning creating lots of Easter themed crafts with you all. Grown ups and children alike enjoyed making eggs, chicks and bunnies ready for a happy Easter. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us.


October 2016

We have had a wonderfully fun filled, first half term at Woodland.

We thoroughly enjoyed the parents reading session and more recently it was thrilling to watch the Mighty Zulu Nation. A Dance company from South Africa who play loud drums and dance energetically.

Year One had a great time and couldn’t wait to write all about their experiences.


September 2016

Come and Join us on the 28th September for a reading morning in Year 1!

We are really looking forward to sharing our love for reading with the Year 1 parents and have planned a selection of activities that are regularly carried out in school to help your children to read.
