Summer Newsletter 9 [Friday 18th June]

Dear Parents & Carers


We’ve had another wonderful week here at Woodlands. The children continue to impress us with their attitude towards learning, their outstanding behaviour & their all-round enthusiasm for whatever they are doing!


Here’s this week’s ‘nudges’.



Who would you invite to tea & why?

{‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ Judith Kerr}


Reception [Red & Blue]

Can you find half of different amounts up to 10?

(You could try sharing out sweets, toys or mange tout…)



Y1&2 [Green, Yellow & Purple]

What does ‘prehistoric’ mean?

{History topic: ‘Prehistoric Britain’}


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

Why was Queen Mary I referred to a ‘bloody Mary’?

{History topic: ‘Tudor Monarchs’}


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

Who was Gandhi?

{RE topic: ‘Hinduism’}


We have decided to hold our sports days this year with no parents present. I know it’s a decision that will disappoint a lot of people, but we have made it with the best of intentions. There has been an increasing stream of notifications over the past few weeks of primary & secondary schools in Sefton having to send classes/bubbles of children home to isolate. We have worked so hard for so long to keep everyone safe at Woodlands that it would be a shame if we let things slip now with the end, hopefully, in sight.


This week, no classes achieved 100% in their attendance this week. Our overall attendance for this week has risen to 96.7%, this still needs to improve (anything under 97% is poor).

This week’s attendance by class:

Red Class 98.9%

Blue Class 91.1%

Green Class 95.9%

Purple Class 99.3%

Yellow Class 93.1%

3A 96.8%

3/4M 98.6%

4G 96.3%

5D 95.1%

5/6P 98.7%

6R 97.9%


We had 7 classes who had no late marks this week: Red Class, Blue Class, Green Class, Yellow Class, 3/4M, 4G, 5/6P & 6R. There were only 5 late marks across the whole school, but to be honest, this should be zero.


Next week, our class photographs are being taken on Tuesday 22nd June – that’s all classes from nursery to Y6. We also have our nursery parents evenings on Tuesday 22nd June (Mrs Jones) & Wednesday 23rd (Mrs Simpson), both from 1.30pm-5.30pm, both by telephone (don’t forget, the phone call will come from an unknown/withheld number).


Take care

What kind of cheese do you use to entice a bear down from a tree?
