The concept within our Reception Project work has moved onto the changing seasons and how the weather has begun changing the physical features of our school environment that we looked closely at this week! This links nicely with our upcoming trip to Attingham Park.

Autumn Stay and Learn – Thursday 20th October 2022

Please see the invite to our annual stay and learn. We hope to see as many of you there as possible.

We would usually invite children to wear spooky clothes to school on the day of our autumn stay and learn. However, this year the school photos are on the same day so decided against this! We are instead asking children to bring a spooky hat, mask, cloak etc to wear for the event, which is easily removable for school photographs.

Well done to our SOS Winners this week – we have focused on ‘Imagine’.


Wow Moments!

Please remember to keep capturing your child’s achievements at home and let us know all about them by writing a Wow Moments slip! As always, we really value your input into the beginning of their school journey here at Woodlands.
