Shoe Box Appeal

Woodthorpe have been collecting shoe boxes for the Manor shoe box appeal. The children in the school have been incredibly selfless. We would like to say a massive thank you to the parents and carers.

The deadline for bringing any shoe boxes or items in is Wednesday 19th December 2018. Thanks again for all the support.

School Council

The school councillors went to Sheffield Town Hall on Wednesday 21st November to meet two local councillors' as well as having a tour in town hall. We also got to go into the Lord Mayor Chambers and sit in the comfy arm chairs.

The children had an actual meeting in the town hall and will be discussing the following question with their peers: 'Should we mix the year groups during learning time?'. We will let you know the outcome of the question.

The Fab Year Fives

Wednesday 14th saw the second visit of the Fab Year Fives to the care home. The children sang a variety of songs and performed some dance routines for the residents.

Both the residents and the children enjoyed the morning session.

The Fab Year Fives

The Fab Year Fives are five year 5 pupils who have been chosen because of their excellent attitude to school to go and read, play games and talk to residents at a local care home.

Their first visit was on Wednesday 17th October; the residents thoroughly enjoyed the presence of the children and they all sang songs together.

We are hoping the children can visit fortnightly and build a bond with the residents who are suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We've had the Macmillan coffee morning for the children and raised an amazing £115.19!

This is a fantastic achievement - well done!

We would like to thank all the parents in year 5 LM/SC who donated buns and cakes to such a worthwhile cause and to the children for being so passionate about a worthy cause.

A massive THANK YOU!
