Whole School News – w/c 16th May

Year 6 Residential

On Monday, year 6 parents and children will get up at the crack of dawn to alight their coach to Edale, Derbyshire, for their five-day residential. The children have been busy preparing for the trip for many weeks and will be treated to an action-packed itinerary. This includes climbing, abseiling, visiting Chatsworth House and exploring the ‘plague village’ of Eyam. We look forward to sharing their experiences with you via next week’s newsletter.

Contacting school next week

Due to the redeployment of staff cover next week, please direct all your enquiries to office@woodbridgeprimary.suffolk.sch.uk rather than comms@woodbridgeprimarysuffolk.sch.uk for Monday to Wednesday next week. You can continue to contact us on the Comms account on Thursday and Friday.

Jubilee Day in school, Friday May 27th

We will be celebrating the Jubilee ahead of the half term break on Friday 27th May. The dress code for this optional non-uniform day is ‘Red, White and Blue.’ The children will be working on some Jubilee-themed activities next week, both in class and also in their breakfast and afterschool clubs.

Student Council

The student council had a great meeting this week. The main topic was to discuss ways to improve playtime, and they came up with lots of ideas to make playtime active, safe and fun.

They are now going to work out the different costs of their chosen items, which include skipping ropes, balls, tennis racquets, badminton equipment and more.

Their next meeting will involve creating a Playground Code to help people play together safely and respectfully.

The council includes class members from years 1-6. Each member is nominated by their classmates, and there are also reserves for those occasions when the Councillor is unable to make the meeting. We took pictures of as many councillors as we could find this week 🙂

Sports Stars

Congratulations to Darcey and Noah in Y4, who had a brilliant sporting success last weekend. Noah played in a football tournament for Woodbridge Woodpecker U10s and received a medal for participating against ten local teams! Darcey undertook an Aquathlon – a swim, immediately followed by a run. Great effort, you two!

Help for Ukraine

Councillor Sue Bale together with Churches Together has organised a meeting for anyone in Woodbridge who would like to find out more about how to help any Ukrainians arriving here. This might be people who have volunteered to be a host or people who may not be able to accommodate someone but who just want to help. The meeting is on Saturday 21 May 12- 2 at St Mary’s Church Centre.

Please see the flyer for details.
