National Dance Championship Success

Woodcroft Pupils Excel in Solo Dance Category

Two members of Woodcroft’s Dance Team achieved individual success in the National School’s Dance Competition on Friday 7th December. They submitted solo videos for judgeing and overjoyed to both place in the Top 10 nationally. What an achievement!

Danis and Atifa, both Y5, have been part of the Dance Team for the past year. COVID19 has prevented team events taking place, but this didn’t stop the girls representing Woodcroft in the solo dance category.

Imagine our excitement, when results were announced, to hear that both had finished at the top of the leaderboard. Congratulations to both of our amazing dancers!

Take a look at a snapshot of their entries on Twitter …

Art Week 2020 – STEM to STEAM

Art Week Virtual Gallery

Woodcroft enjoyed another fantastic Art Week! This term’s theme was STEM to STE[+a]M where we celebrated visual art using science and technology as inspiration. Each year group had a focus artist who they researched and Art techniques which  were learnt and developed. Artwork inspired by their focus artist was produced throughout the school. Each class has created a display of their amazing work, and in the Gallery Corridor, showcased their project in one of the frames. Because visits are restricted on site we have created this as a virtual gallery for you. We can all agree the pupils have done a wonderful job and that it has been another successful Art Week at Woodcroft!
