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!

FREE Food Parcels For Woodcroft Families

You will be aware that the government in England rejected calls to extend a voucher scheme for children to receive free school meals over the half-term and winter holidays. This puts many families in additional hardship. 

A member of our school community, and with the support of Morrisons supermarket, arranged for FREE food parcels to be made available to Woodcroft families over half-term. This took place on Tuesday 27th October between 10.00am and 12.00pm. 

On the day we distributed an amazing total of 64 food parcels and 40 packed lunch bags. Thank you to everyone who supported this local community event. Special thanks to Mrs Clark and her family who organised the entire initiative.

Woodcroft Weekly News Issue 392

Today, we have had a wonderful climax to a most unusual term with our International Day celebrations. However, you will have to wait until after half term for that to feature in the news. This week’s issue was already jam packed as we are including the autumn activities schedule for our local children centres.

Also in Issue 392 is a reminder about the flu vaccinations programme. Year 6 families must also check that their secondary applications are finalised. Over half term we shall also be running a Battle Of The Bands (class vs class) times table competition, so encourage your child to log on to Times Tables Rock Stars every day.
