WOW Newsletter July 2014


Wonders of Wetheringsett - July 2014

It’s hard to believe that this is the last WOW newsletter of this year where we celebrate all the exciting things that have taken place at school over the half term. Summer Term always seems to be so busy and this year has been no exception. A real highlight was our production of Wind in the Willows. This was the first full production since I have been at the school and I was so impressed with the quality of the performance. This was down to an awful lot of hard work for the children and staff and the support they received from their parents - a massive well done everyone!

I would like to  wish you all a very happy, fun-filled and safe break and look forward to children returning to school on Friday 5th September.

Goodbye Year 6!

It was lovely to hear all the Year 6 children’s memories at Leavers’ Assembly last week. We wish Jools, Bethany, Leah, Iris, Ollie, Kieran, James and Tom, all the very best as they move up to Debenham High School.


Hello New Intake!

The new Reception children who will be joining us in September have been spending time in their new class each week for several weeks as part of their induction process. They also got to meet their Year 6 mentors at a teddy bears’ picnic. We are all very much looking forward to welcoming them into school properly in September.


Talent Show

So much talent was on display in this year’s Talent Show organised by the Friends. The standard was even higher than last year!


New Garden Play Area

Children in Sycamore Class had a competition to design a new play area in the garden. The winning design, designed by Taya and Bethan, has proved to be very popular!


Sports Night

Once again, the sun came out for this year’s Sports Night. Well done to the winning orange team and to Jools who won a special award for his positive attitude and support for others throughout the evening.

African Adventure

Chestnut Tree Class had a wonderful time at their residential week at African Adventure at Sizewell Hall. They took part in all sorts of activities which were all linked to some of the difficulties and challenges that some people in parts of Africa face.

Coins for Carers

Children brought 2ps into school to raise money for Suffolk Family Carers who support several children in our school. All the 2ps were laid out along the painted lines in the playground.

Green Fingers

Children in Sycamore Class and Gardening Club have grown many different kinds of fruit and vegetables. These have been cooked in the school kitchen and enjoyed by children at lunchtimes.

A team from the Diocese came into school and worked with the whole school on activities to help them learn about life in the link diocese in Kagera.

Forest School

Willow Class children have absolutely loved their first Forest School sessions, led by Kelly Hammond who has gained her Forest School Leader qualification. The children spend a whole afternoon each week in our own Whispering Wood. They have done all sorts of activities from bug collecting, to a camp fire and mud sculptures. They particularly enjoyed making things from off-cuts of willow!

Key Stage 2 children are very excited that they will have an opportunity for their own sessions from September.photo.JPG

Please note:


We will all be making sure that all child show pride in our school through the high standards of school uniform from September. In particular, please note:

  • socks should be plain black, grey or white

  • no jewellery, except plain stud earrings should be worn

  • long hair should be tied up

  • hair styles should be sensible - no ‘tramlines’/ highly gelled styles

Wind in the Willows

A whole page is needed to celebrate the amazing costumes, scenery and face paints and all the special moments from Wind in the Willows.
