Primary School News
It really has been an explosive term, in more ways than one! The fireworks evening was incredibly successful and once again the PTA made an amazing amount of money. Our fundraising focus this year is for the outside environment. We are developing a ‘Secret Garden’ for our Forest School area so the children can explore the wonder of the great outdoors. The funds from the PTA events allow us to buy some amazing resources, for all the children, and we really are very grateful.
Developing the computing curriculum is high on our agenda this year. We have purchased some exciting equipment to help the children develop coding skills. They explored Ozobots, Ollies and coded a Minecraft game, learning vital skills to prepare them for the future. You can watch the Ozobot race on Twitter – @WGPS864
Listening to the children speak passionately about our school is something that makes me feel very proud. The parents who visited our school on the open days, were very impressed with the maturity our school ambassadors showed.
So what makes Wisborough Green so unique? We are able to offer a very personalised curriculum, to meet all individual needs. Our talented musicians enjoyed composing songs using their electric guitars, our talented runners ran with determination at the locality cross country competition and our talented artists created some stunning designs. Everyone is unique in their own special way and our role is to help all children discover their inner talents.
As the term has progressed, so has the building work. There has been an explosion of work across the school. By the end of the project there will be: a new year 6 classroom, junior toilets, new hall windows, a group room for meetings, a new office space and an enlarged car park. The staff and children have been amazingly resilient to change and disruption during this time and I feel lucky to work with such a brilliant team.
The school governors are another team working hard to support the school. We do have another vacancy on the governing body and would love to have someone from the local community join us on our continual journey of improvement. If you would like to find out more about becoming a school governor and what is involved in the role, then please contact the school office.
As we approach the season of goodwill, we are looking forward to our annual celebrations. The Christmas nativity rehearsals are underway, our special visitor will be visiting us for a mince pie and the Wisborough Green Pantomime could be the highlight of the year again! Let the festivities begin!
