Non Uniform Day - 13th July 2021


Our final Non-Uniform day of the school year will be on Tuesday 13th July 2021


The theme for this day is to wear something / dress up as something that begins with the same letter as your name. For example, Doris could dress up as a dinosaur or wear a dress. Mr Smith could dress up as a sausage or wear a scarf. It doesn't have to be anything extravagant, just be creative. We can't wait to see your outfits!


In return for the non-uniform day, FOWSA would be grateful for a £1 donation.


Thank you for your support!

** Sales have now closed for Ice Cream Friday **


Ice Cream Fridays 2021


Good news! Ice cream Fridays are coming back to Woodlands this summer!


Due to Covid restrictions we've had to make some changes to how we run ice cream Friday, but we're hoping everyone will appreciate the new format and understand the need to keep it as straightforward and as safe for everyone as possible.


Over on our payment site you can pre-order and pay for your child's choice of ice-cream / lolly ice in a 5 week block for just £5! Choose between Rocket Lollies, Strawberry Cones, Strawberry Splits and Milk Chocolate Majestics at the checkout stage.


The children will then be given their choice of ice cream / lolly ice by their teacher at home time each Friday afternoon (every Friday from Friday 18th June - Friday 16th July).


NEW! You can now add siblings to your order! If your child has siblings which are not at Woodlands you can now order an ice cream for them. Please order under the name / class of the child in Woodlands and they will bring the ice creams out to their sibling(s) at the end of the day.


Please note: Once you have completed your booking, it WILL NOT be possible to change your child's choice of ice cream / lolly ice. Orders will close at 9pm on Wednesday 16th June 2021.


Finally, just a reminder that even though it is ice cream Friday, children, parents and carers should still leave the school site immediately after pick up and not gather on the playground, field etc.


Thank you for your support!

Co-op Local Community Fund


One of our projects, creating a sensory garden, has been chosen by the Co-op to be supported by its Local Community Fund!


Every time a member of the Co-op buys selected products, they will get 2p back for every £1 spent and the same goes into the Local Community Fund.


We have been chosen as one of 3 charities for the Formby and Ainsdale stores until October, so please shop at Co-op and help us raise some funds towards our project.


This link

takes you to our Local Community Fund page and you can sign up to become a member of the Co-op there as well.


As we are unable to fundraise at school at the moment and funds are tighter than ever for everyone, we would really appreciate your help. Thank you for your support and please share this with family and friends to get it to as many people as we can.


Thank you for your support!
