FOPPS Film Night is back!
Fopps Coffee Morning 25th May at the Allardice Hall
Please remember that next Friday morning is the FOBBS Sponsored Walk. Please encourage your children to get as much sponsorship ahead of the event as possible so that they really feel a sense of achivement when taking part. Please also keep an eye on the weather forecast at the end of the week so that your child is suitably dressed – be that waterproofs or sunblock and hat! Thank you
Just a reminder to Woolsery parents that on Friday, the school is travelling to the Queen’s Theatre, Barnstaple to watch Gangsta Granny. We will be leaving after normal school drop-off time and returning for a late lunch at 1:30pm. We will be providing the children with a snack to keep them going! As you’ll remember, the cost of this visit is being funded by FOWS and so is free to all families.
On Thursday morning, Woolsery children have a visit from H. Tempest to take Class and Leavers’ Photos. Please could you make sure your child’s uniform is smart on the day, and that Y6s bring their regular Woolsery sweatshirt as well as their Leavers’ Hoodie to school for their pictures? Thanks.
This is the last shout-out for spending money for the Y6 residential. All money must be in school by Friday (in a named envelope, not wallets/purses please) otherwise I won’t be able to process it before we leave for Bude on the last day of the Half Term holiday.
A huge well done to the children from Buckland and Woolsery who took part in the Cricket Tournament last Tuesday. We heard fantastic things about your team spirit, confidence and manners throughout the event. All children showed remarkable perseverence and we’re very proud of them all. I think everyone who went had a great time and we’ll certainly participate in future events when they come around.
Outdoor Learning Day
Yesterday was Outdoor Learning Day and all three schools marked it with activities outside. here are just a few photos from the day from across the schools…
Please remember if your child is unable to attend school, you must let us know, either by phoning and selcting Option 1 and speaking to Mrs Davis, or by emailing email@example.com We still have some families who are contacting their “home” school directly and as a result absence reasons are getting missed so please avoid doing this. Thank you for your help.
Stop Press: Burton Art presentations!
We’re just back from this afternoon’s presentations at the Burton Art Gallery where Poppy and Ethan were presented with a set of paints, a sketch book and a certificate for their amazing work. If you’ve not yet seen the exhibition yourself, do go along… it’s well worth it!
Well done to everyone who received a Headteacher’s Award this week for great Learning Behaviours… It’s really interesting that at this nearly-half-way-through-the-term point, we’re seeing lots of awards for tortoises.
