Woodthorpe JI School nurtures children to become confident and creative learners. Children are encouraged to meet challenges with enthusiasm and a willingness to solve problems within our inclusive, secure and caring environment. We promote respect for individual differences and community values.
On Saturday, Mrs Jones, who teaches the children sign language through song, will be at Kings Heath Hub performing with her group. The children who attend sing and sign after school have been given flyers about this and have been invited to join if they wish. The group will be performing between 11am-12 noon and the children can perform the songs they have been learning in after school club. There is no obligation to take part. Children can wear their own clothes (not school uniform). You can ask other relatives to come and watch you too.
There are lots of other activities going on too so please feel free to pop along even if you don’t do sing and sign at school.
Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a restful half term and that we are all looking forward to a successful and happy new term leading up to Christmas and the winter break.
Getting creative during COP26
As part of our school’s ongoing engagement with the climate change event COP26, we have been engaging with a number of online sessions run by experts. Our session this Friday is for children in KS1 and KS2, and it is a creative session. Therefore, we are asking all children to bring in (either tomorrow or on Friday) a clean Tetra Pak juice or milk carton (ideally a 1ltr. long life container which has a foil interior).
New member of staff
We are lucky to have a new member of staff joining our class for the greater part of the rest of this year. Mrs Smith is a trainee teacher who will be in our class as part of her qualification. The children have done a great job already at making her feel very welcome and I know she is feeling very excited for the rest of the year.
Thank you to all the parents I was able to speak with as part of parents evening. Apologies for the technical difficulties some of us faced. I am pleased to have been able to speak with all the parents with a few exceptions which I am in the process of catching up on.
I will upload a post with some more insight into how this first week has been since the class have come back next week but I wanted to say that I have been very pleased with the outstanding attendance we have achieved so far and the effort and attitude the children are showing towards school. Keep it up Year 1!
Please see our breakfast and after-school club provision for Autumn Term 2 below. The sessions will run over a six-week period from Monday 8th November 2021 to Friday 17th December.
