A huge well done to the children that took part in Town Sports this year. They were absolutely fantastic and we were all so proud of how resilient they were. Their behaviour was exceptional and they all showed amazing team spirit.

Sports Week!, by Miss Booth

National Sports Week 2019

Well, what a busy week we have had for National Sports Week. We were a little worried on Monday that the weather might ruin all of our plans, but luckily the sunshine turned up and we've had a wonderful week. 

This year’s sports week focus was '5 Ways to Wellbeing' and each of these 5 ways have been focused on in a different way across the school. 

Monday was all about being activeand year 1, 2, 3 and 4 children were certainly active on Monday morning. The children all took part in a rugby session, lead by Dan Robinson from Congleton Rovers Club. They learnt some of the skills for playing tag rugby and were well and truly worn out by the end of their session. By the smiles on their faces, learning this new sport was a hit! Dan is joining us again next week to give year 5 and 6 the opportunity to work with him too. 

On Tuesday we connected with Castle Primary School and played in a friendly match against them at their school. The game was tough but our team played really well and didn't give up, showing perseverance and resilience throughout. A special well done to both Sadie, who did some amazing saves in the goal, and to Luke for keeping the spirits of his team up when things got tough. 

Wednesday was all about giving back and some of year 6 children did just this on Wednesday afternoon by getting our little ones moving. Mackenzie, Luke, Abi and Haydn spent the afternoon on our sports field running obstacle course and races for Acorns and Olive Class. Judging by the laughter and cheering I could hear, I would say the children had a brilliant afternoon. 

This year we haven't just focused on being physically fit and healthy but also about how we keep our mental health fighting fit too and this is a topic we talk about lots in school. So on Thursday we took notice through yoga of what our minds were telling us and each class took part in a yoga session, run by Mrs Cosgrove.

During the afternoon, Bee Active got Oak and Maple class busy again with a netball and dodgeball tournament! 

Which leads us to Friday - LearnOver the course of the week, the children have been learning about different sports personalities, including; Richard Whitehead MBE, The Brownlee Brothers and Dan Sturridge. They have not only learnt about their sporting achievements but also about what characteristics they hold to have lead them to these successes. We have talked lots about those two words, perseverance and resilience and how each of us have these skills we just have to dig deep to find them sometimes. 

A very busy and enjoyable week! 

We took lots of photos and these can be seen below as well as on your Class Dojo pages. 

Read4Good, by Miss Booth

Date: 19th Jun 2019 @ 2:34pm

You might remember, back in the spring term, we ran a Readathon to raise money for a charity called Read 4 Good. The chairty raises money to buy new books for children in hospitals. This is due to the fact that used books cannot be donated to hospitals, due to the risk of infection. 

Lots of children took part and we raised an amazing amount of £304.10! This money will now be donated to local hosiptals to buy some amazing new books! 

Well done everyone who took part! 

Juvenile Arthritis Day , by Miss Booth

Date: 7th Jun 2019 @ 11:44am

We have had a lovely day in school today, supporting 'Wear Purple for Juvvenile Arthritis Day'. 

Our campaign was organised by Theo, who was diagnosed with JA when he was seven years old. Theo lead our whole-school assembly this morning and educated not only the children but the staff too on just what JA is and his own experiences with this. We are all very proud of the way Theo manages JA and also how he has encourgaed his whole school to support him in his quest to raising money for a brilliant campaign. 

Well done Theo and a huge well done to all of the children who wore purple today and donated.

Drama Presentation , by Miss Booth

Date: 5th Apr 2019 @ 2:32pm

What a lovely morning we had at school today. We started our morning with singing assembly in the hall, however this was no normal singing assembly. As a treat for the children, after they had worked so very hard on their Easter performance, we sang some of our favourite 'Friday Feelings' songs and had a kittle boogie! Even Mrs Massen joined in! 

This excitement was followed by Maple and Oak Class children sharing their drama performances with the rest of the school and some of the parents. It was so wonderful to see a range of poems being performend in lots of different ways with lots of expression and actions. 

The children who have attended drama club also showed us the poems they have been working on, including a littler surprise for Ms Warrilow in the form of an acrositc poem, written by themselves!

The children and Mrs Cosgrove all worked very hard!

Well, we had an amazing time at Young Voices 2019!

On Monday 11th February, the school choir travelled to Manchester Arena to perform in the Young Voices concert with hundreds of other children, in front of lots of parents from many different schools.

The children sang lots of different songs (along with dancing) including 'Any Dream Will Do', 'Viva La Vida' and 'The Greatest Showman' medley. It really was a pleasure to take the choir to the concert as they were so well behaved and really were the stars of the show!

Here are some photographs for you to enjoy of the children having an amazing day at the concert!

Recently, children in year four along with some year five children visited Eaton Bank Academy to take part in a trampolining lesson.

Rotary Club Art Competition , by Miss Booth

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 2:18pm

Well what an exciting assembly we had yesterday! 

We were lucky enough to welcome Rod Goodier, from the Congleton Rotary Club to our school, who came to present some prizes and certificates to the children. Earlier in the year, during the summer term, some children from our school took part in an art competition, held by Congleton Rotary Club. The theme of the competition was ‘my favourite month’ and the children were allowed to use any artistic techniques and resources they wanted. 

We had some amazing entries and we really don’t know how the judges chose a winner...but they did! 

Lots of children received a certificate and a sample prize off taking part. Emilia (last years, year six) was a runner up, as was Teddy in year three! 

And our winner was Elliot, who as you can see from the photos was extremely proud of himself! Elliot was presented with his artwork, which had been framed and an artists painting set.

This morning, the children of Woodcocks' Well, along with some of the parents, were lucky enough to see the after-school drama club performance. 

The children in the after-school club have been working extremely hard together discovering poetry, which they feel passionatley about.

The children worked in pairs and small groups to perform some of the poems they had previously worked together to find or even write. We must say we were very impressed with everyones performances, as well as their choice of poems to share.

Year 5 fair trade workshop at Eaton Bank, by Miss Booth

Date: 20th Jun 2018 @ 9:18am

An enterprising group of children consisting of our year 5 children visited Eaton Bank for an insight into World Trade.

After an interesting insight into life at Eaton Bank School and it’s Geography Department our children split into teams representing countries around the world. Each team was given a pack and some children were most indignant to discover that the contents of the pack were not fairly split country by country. The aim was to manufacture perfect paper shapes and sell them to the world bank (teacher) in packs of five. Trading was allowed but not any stealing of other team’s shapes! Our children showed such clever manufacturing techniques and enthusiasm for trade ...the atmosphere was electric with competitive spirit. We were surprised to discover that our results mirrored real life trade, in that the country’s that started with least resources worked so hard that they ended up making lots of money through trade. Well done to all pupils who took part.
