Summer Newsletter 8 [Friday 11th June]

Dear Parents & Carers

Thank you to everyone who completed our governing body’s RSE (Relationships & Sex Education) parental survey - they really did us food for thought. We had 53 responses in total. As you may have expected there is a wide range of opinions on what, when & how different topics should be covered at Woodlands. Woodlands governors & staff will analyse the replies & our PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) / RSE policy will be published on our website during the summer term.


Here’s this week’s questions to begin a conversation about your children’s learning.



We have been studying tigers using video footage in their natural environments.

What words can you use to describe a tiger?

{‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’}


Reception [Red & Blue]

Why are there no dinosaurs alive today?

{Dinosaurs topic: ‘Understanding the World’}


Y1&2 [Green, Yellow & Purple]

How do we find out about prehistoric Britain?

{History topic: ‘Prehistoric Britain’}


Y3&4 [3A, 3/4M & 4G]

Can you name some countries & their capital cities within Western Europe?

{Geography topic: ‘Western Europe’}


Y5&6 [5D, 5/6P & 6R]

What was Britain like before the Industrial Revolution?

{History topic: ‘Industrial Revolution’}


This week, one class achieved 100% in their attendance this week – congratulations to Purple Class. Our overall attendance for this week has risen to 96.2%, but this still isn’t what we’d expect (anything under 97% is poor).


We had 8 classes who had no late marks this week: Purple Class, Yellow Class, 3A, 3/4M, 4G,5D, 5/6P & 6R. There were only 3 late marks across the whole school & not a single late mark in the juniors (Y3-Y6).


Please check out Mr Inskip’s wonderful photographs of a mother duck & her 12 ducklings that hatched in the school grounds over half term – follow the link to the article on the school website


Take care

Last word

I ate a clock yesterday

It was very time consuming…
