“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.”
(Norman Vincent Peale)
The magic really has been cast upon Wisborough Green Primary School this year with our many festive celebrations. Choral voices rang out through the school during the month of December, especially in preparation for the brilliant Nativity, ‘The Inn-spectors’ was a roaring success: the costumes, dancing, singing and acting was first class – I think we made our own sparkle and shine. Well done to the brilliant staff production team for once again putting on a superb show.
As we love outdoor learning, we decided to theme our Christmas tree decorations around the autumnal wonders. Pine cones were transformed into angels, wooden discs were decorated with sheep and cleverly crafted wooden trees donned the magical trees in the church. It was lovely to receive feedback that our children were so well behaved, decorating the trees – they are a tribute to our school.
Changing the world is always an aim for us at WGPS! There really is nothing in the way to stop us making a difference to others, no matter how young we are. We once again entered the 7 Billion Ideas competition to design a new life changing product. Our Year 3 children won the school finals and represented us at Wakehurst Place in the South East finals. The competition was fierce and we were among much older children, however the fighting spirit of Wisborough Green came through and we once again took home a prize – the best model! Well done to the children for representing our school so brilliantly and for sharing our creativity and perseverance for success. We are very proud!
Beauty is within and very much outwith. The children really did find an inner peace in the ancient woodlands, known as The Mens. Thank you to The Sussex Wildlife Trust for helping the children to learn more about conservation, biodiversity, orienteering and bird, tree and track identification to name just a few. You don’t need Christmas to wave a magic wand over children as there is so much magic within them already. You just need to know how to unlock it – something we do everyday.
Thank you to the amazing team of staff, parents, governors and children at WGPS for making every day a magical day.
