What an exciting end to the year for our year fives!

They have produced and performed an excellent 'Just Dance' video, which was enjoyed by all who attended the Global Garden Party.

See more about the event on our Year 5 Yeargroup page.

School Attendance

I am pleased that the majority of pupils at Woodthorpe have very good attendance records and I would like to thank all those parents who ensure that their children attend school every day.

However, I am concerned that some children have sporadic unauthorised or unexplained absences that have a significant impact on their learning.

It is important that parents aware of what the law says about school attendance. The letter issued to all parents on 2 May 2017 explains more and gives further information about the Education Act 1996.

Storytelling Day

Many thanks to all who supported us during our Woodthorpe Storytelling Day on 31st March.

We have more photos to show you on our Events page ...

As always your children were simply brilliant, performing their own incredible stories, plays and poems.

We'd like to say a special thank you to storyteller Roop Singh and children's author and illustrator, Pippa Pixley, who entertained us with lots of fun stories and activities throughout the day.

Red Nose Day 2017

Red Nose Day was on Friday 24th March 2017.

As usual, we supported this worthwhile cause. Red noses were available to purchase at school and we had a non uniform day where children were invited to contribute £1 towards our fundraising efforts.

We raised an amazing £595 for Red Nose Day.
