This week was Book Week at Woodcroft. Every year we have a week-long celebration of reading that coincides with World Book Day. We select a focus text that is then studied by the whole school. This year it was ‘The Secret Garden’ by Francis Hodgson Burnett.
The week began for KS1 and KS2 with a wonderful, live performance of ’The Secret Garden’ by our friends at M&M Theatre. Year 6 also enjoyed a stagecraft workshop as part of their Arts Award qualification.
We also created our very own Woodcroft Secret Garden in the foyer, and pupils had a special book study project to carry out.
Book Week was also the official launch of our new reading curriculum called ‘The Reading Rainbow’. The Reading Rainbow helps children develop rich language and knowledge about books.
We have lots of important information in this week’s newsletter.
Firstly, I have to inform you of the likely closure of school next Thursday as a result of the industrial action. Issue 477 goes over the detailed arrangements including the option to book a family lunch on Thursday.
Next week is also Book Week! Read all about our focus text, The Secret Garden, including Monday’s theatre performance of this classic story.
We feel that Book Week is the ideal opportunity to launch our fantastic, new reading curriculum – The Reading Rainbow! Take a look at the display in our foyer, or check out the English curriculum
pages on our website, if you want to find out more.
We are NOT dressing up on World Book Day next week. However, in the diary section of issue 477, you can find out about our plans for Red Nose Day!
Read about our online safety work and activities supporting both Schools’ Football Week and Children’s Mental Health Week. All are national initiatives that took place this week.
We have also identified a new supplier for our school uniform following the surprise announcement that Essential Schoolwear had ceased trading.
Have a good half term week. We will see you all again when pupils return to school on Monday 20th February.
We are looking ahead to next week in today’s newsletter. We have got Children’s Mental Health Week coming up, and we will be following a ‘Take 5’ approach to maintaining our wellbeing in school.
