WG Primary School News

Apr 1, 2020 | Primary School News

Once again we have been rushed off our feet with so many exciting learning opportunities – I don’t really know where to start!  From art week to theatre trips to World Book Day and a new school magazine – it is fair to say we have been incredibly busy.

Colour mixing galore, origami butterflies and Kandinsky circles have all added to the excitement of art week.  The children loved immersing themselves in the art extravaganza, all based around colour. Our portrait masterpiece is on display in our school hall and I am very proud of how hard the staff and children worked to create some outstanding learning.

It was fun seeing everyone in their PJs celebrating a day totally dedicated to reading.  The children enjoyed bedtime stories and hot chocolate, a visit from Reverend Clive dressed as Bob the Builder and sharing books with their buddies. 

Our super talented Year 6 Book Club produce a trailer to promote the book ‘Speechless’ by Kate Darbishire.  Their entry was judged against other locality primary schools at The Weald Book Awards and we came away winning the gold!  You can view the trailer on our school website – it is something not to be missed.  The author herself was also very impressed and tweeted to say how much she loved their work.  Thank you to Miss Jeal, Mrs Maree and the book group for all their hard work! 

Out of every challenging situation there is always a positive to be found.  We have opened our ‘Stop and Drop’ service to all the children in school.  This means parents with younger children can drop them at the front of the school in the morning, therefore reducing the traffic around School Road.  We would like to say thank you to all the parents and carers who have been considerate and sensible during a disruptive period.  We are hoping to continue to offer the facility to all children in a bid to support our travel plan.

We are excited to share the second edition of our school magazine, “We Are Wisborough”.  The Marketing Club have worked incredibly hard, with the support of Heidi Lang, to produce an outstanding product once again.  Thank you to everyone who has bought advertising space and helped us to raise additional funds for our school.  If you would like a copy of our magazine then please contact the school office – office@wisboroughgreenschool.org.uk.  We are asking for a suggested donation of £1. 

The term is nearly over but we still have so much to do!  The children are preparing to sing their hearts out at the Spring Concert, we will spend a day celebrating trees to help us achieve our platinum Green Tree Schools Award and we look forward to welcoming professionals, from the world of work, for our ‘What’s My Line?’ assembly.  

No time for our feet to touch the ground – must dash!

Warm regards
