Very soon we will be using our new sketchbooks and have been creative in designing our names for the front covers.
Class 2 have designed their names using bubble writing, whilst Class 3 have learned how to create 3D lettering for their artwork.
The whole school enjoyed an excellent performance from Theatre Alibi. The production was based on a Michael Morpurgo book and called “ I Believe in Unicorns.” Some of the pupils had the opportunity to meet the cast, ask questions and look at the very creative props.
Thank you Theatre Alibi for another great show!
We hope you all have had a lovely summer break and had the opportunity to enjoy some of the amazing weather we had.
Look out for the new school lunch menu and for the calendar of after school clubs.
School returns on Wednesday 4th September. We look forward to seeing you all then.
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.
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!
As we come to the end of our Summer term there is lots of tidying to do including our Forest School area which has been in use for den building, pirate ship sailing and team building games to name but a few of the fun activities!
A big thank you to the pupils who helped to tidy our Forest School site ready for September.
Well done to all of our pupils who have been showing school values, academic achievements and sporting prowess. What talented children we have.
We also said a huge thank you to all the kind people who give up their time to help out with school activities including swimming, outdoor learning and reading.
