WOW Newsletter 3 24.10.13


Wonders of Wetheringsett - October 2013

Welcome to the first of this year’s celebratory newsletter. Again, there is much to report and celebrate. A huge thank you to all the parents who support us so well, from transporting children, to making scarecrows and accompanying us on school trips - we could not do most of these things without you!

If your child has any achievements out of school, please do make sure they bring in any certificate and trophies so they can be photographed and added to the next edition.

Cross Country

We were delighted that over half of the children in KS2 chose to take part in last week’s inter-school cross country in Mellis. Well done to William Brown and Kieran Pooley who got through to the finals!

Reception Children

It is hard to believe that our new Reception children have only been with us for a few weeks, they have settled into school so well! Welcome to Leo, Daisy. Lavinia, Seth. Mia, Aidan, Bryn and Alfie.

We’re going on a right angle hunt!

Lime Tree Class went on a ‘right angle hunt’ in their maths lesson to find food for ‘Reggie the Right Angle Eating Monster’ who was very, very hungry! Luckily they found him lots and lots of things to eat!

School Newspaper

This week saw the publication of the first edition of the Wetheringsett Express newspaper created by Tom, Bethany and Leah. This will be a half termly event. The team will welcome contributions for the next edition from other children.

Maths Day

Six of our KS2 children had a fantastic, challenging time working with children from other schools at a special maths day for more able mathematicians at Sir Robert HItcham Primary School in Debenham. Mrs Sharpe worked with maths subject leaders from other local schools to plan the day.

Congratulations to…

  • Jessica and Lucy for their Brownies certificates:

  • Ollie and Ben Davey for their success in the tractor and ploughing competition.

Trip to West Stow

Sycamore Tree Class had a wonderful time on their trip to West Stow Anglo Saxon Village as part of their history topic. They were particularly excited to find out that Stephanie’s step-dad had built one of the houses there!

New Baby!

This is Mrs Pratt’s lovely daughter,  Lucy Alison who arrived safely on 22nd September. She made her first visit to school with her proud mum last week!

Baptism in Sycamore!

Sycamore Class were fascinated when Reverend Julia accompanied them to the church and baptised one of the school’s dolls as part of their RE work!

Celtic Cross

Chestnut Tree Class made this amazing Celtic Cross in RE. They each used a single loop of string that represents the trinity in many Celtic designs.


The response from parents and members of the community to the idea of making scarecrows for harvest was incredible and we look forward to this being an annual event. Thank you to our parents and community for all their support with this.

School House

The new space resulting from  the incorporation of the School House into the main building of the school has made a huge difference to the school. Our Reception and Year 1 children are making great use of the extra space!
