Year 6 Leavers
24 July 2019

We said an emotional farewell to our lovely Year 6 pupils at their leavers service in church. We listened to their humorous and poignant memories of their time at Woodbury Salterton, heard some beautiful prayers, poetry and all joined in with some resounding hymns and songs.

Thank you to Rev. Nigel for presenting each leaver with a Bible and to Ian form Exmouth Rotary Club, for presenting Dictionaries.

We all wish you the very best of luck at your new schools and success for your future journeys.

Summer Reading Challenge
19 July 2019

Why is reading for pleasure important?

  • Currently, 1 in 5 children in England cannot read well by the age of 11. We know that reading for fun improves literacy.
  • Reading for pleasure is more important to children’s academic success than their parents’ level of education or socio-economic status.
  • Embedding a love of reading in children can help their wellbeing later in life. 19% of adult readers say that reading stops them feeling lonely.
  • Studies have found that those who read for pleasure have higher levels of empathy, greater self-esteem and are better able to cope with difficult situations.
  • The Summer Reading Challenge gets around 700,000 children into libraries each year to keep up their reading skills and confidence during the long holidays.

It’s fun, it’s free and it’s local!
