SUMMER FAYRE 2019

A huge thank you to all parents/carers, staff, Friends of Woodlands and children for supporting this year’s Summer Fayre.  It raised a fabulous £646.77.  A special thank you goes out to all the volunteers that give up their spare time to support the events throughout the year to help raise money for the extra-curricular activities. Your continued support is very much appreciated.

 

How you can get involved

There are lots of ways you can help and support your child through the FOW.

Offering to help before events or at other times during the year is so valuable. It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you cannot come into school. There are always jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare e.g. wrapping gifts, preparing raffle tickets etc. We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the behind the scenes help that we receive.

If you would like to be more involved you can volunteer to be a Class Representative or Committee Member. Or you can simply support the AGM and give us your ideas for fundraising events. This is also the time to ask questions or voice your opinion.

If you are interested in helping us or would like to join the Friends of Woodlands please contact Lynn Bailey, School ink Support Worker on 01952 386070.  New faces are always welcome.

Thank you for all your ongoing support.

 

 

 

THE SNAP TRAP PRODUCTION

Last week children from years 4 – 6 watched a Telford and Wrekin ‘Snap Trap’ theatre presentation. It was created to raise awareness of e-safety and highlight the potential dangers of smart technology. For children, smart technology and going online is very much a part of their everyday lives and characters portray this in a relatable way. ‘The Snap Trap’ has been developed with the help of young people who have experienced the negative aspects of smart technology.

Year 6 children pass Level 3 Bikeability

Congratulations to the year 6 children who passed Level 3 Bikeability.  This is an intense practical cycling 2 day course run by Telford and Wrekin Road Safety.   Bikeability is a national standard cycle training programme designed to give cyclists the skills and confidence to cycle in modern road conditions.

Well done everyone!

 

Cycling Together

Why not start cycling together? Riding bikes is a great family activity

and you can help

support your child with their Bikeability training at the same time.

Choose a quiet place away from traffic – the park is perfect, and start by practicing looking back over your shoulder and giving hand

signals whilst maintaining control of the bike. You could also help by showing them how to select the correct gear and use the brakes with control. Simply getting out and about on 2 wheels will improve your child’s confidence.

PUPIL VOICE ELECTIONS 2019

During June, the whole school have been taking part in the Woodland’s Pupil Voice Elections. This has been to re -elect new School Councillors, Eco Councillors and Junior Road Safety officers.

 

Our current Pupil Voice have been in their role for the last 2 years and have worked very hard to help improve both our school and local community.  They have worked closely with the community, going into a local hospitals, care homes, Telford Crisis Support. They have also been involved with local litter picking, achieving gold award for Road Safety plus sharing views about school dinners, playground activities and lots, lots more.

 

Each pupil had the opportunity to complete and present their Manifesto to the class and canvass for votes. Children voted confidentially in their class on the nomination form, then the top 4 girls and 4 boys were then selected for the formal Election Day which was held in our polling station at Woodland’s.

 

We held an Election Results Assembly where parents/carers, staff, children and governors joined us to celebrate the newly elected pupil voice representatives.
