On the 7th March it was World Book Day. In school we did many fun activities: made bookmarks, had a book trail and a book fair. Year Six also raised £104.81 by selling used books. This money will go towards for the Year Six residential trip.
On Wednesday 6th March we celebrated World Maths Day in school. Key Stage One and Two children were able to log on to the World Games website and had lots of fun competing against children from around the World. We had tangrams, cookery and puzzles throughout the day.
A fun time was definitely had by all. You could say…mathstastic!

Anti-bullying week was packed full of fun things including: making photo frames, bookmarks, anti-bullying slogans, word faces and colouring in. We made posters for anti-bullying and posters to show how the listening buddies can help you. One poster won out of each class in Friday assembly. On Wednesday, in singing practice we sang ‘Don’t worry be happy’ but changed it to ‘Don’t bully be happy.’ We had Friendship Tokens instead of Pupil of the Week slips too. On Friday, we could add something blue to our uniforms for ‘Beat Bullying Blue.’
It was a hard week but altogether it was lots of fun!
On Friday 16th November the pupils at Windy Nook had a jam-packed day filled with lots of fun activities to do with ‘Children in Need.’ The Oaks and School Council made all of these fab activities happen. The activities included: making cakes, biscuits and crispy cakes, pencils, badges, and key rings. There were also a group of hard working face painters that spent the full day face painting. Altogether we raised over £600! The most that we have ever raised. So thank you for all of your donations. Also a big thank you to all of the staff for organising such a great day.
This academic year we will be continuing our fantastic work with
Sustrans and the FEAT First project. Last year this involved pedal free biking,
Nordic walking, pedometer challenges and Walk, Wheel Wednesday. To kick start
our activities this year Emma Spence, our FEAT First officer, will be in school
on Wednesday 26th September to repair bikes belonging to Key Stage One
children. Watch out for the flier coming your way next week…
To help The Queen celebrate 60 years on the throne we had a red, white and blue day in school. We were all dressed to impress! We decided to mark the event by making a WN60. What do you think of our creative efforts? I’m sure the Queen would be ‘Jubilee-ous’ about it!
Even though the weather was miserable the Athletics team had a great time at the Stadium and got two gold medals!!! Well done to all the children who took part and congratulations to Ryan Green for getting a gold medal in the long jump and to Daniel Watson for getting a gold medal in the 80m sprint.
Anna Ingram and Owen Shannon showed true star quality last week when the Evening Chronicle came into school to report on my new book ‘Sixth Sense’. We had lots of fun and giggles.
Thank you to all the children and parents who have expressed an interest in my book and given such fantastic support. There will be a book signing on Tuesday 22nd May after school in the community room. Free bookmarks will be given with every book purchased. Make sure you order in advance. I’ll look forward to seeing you there!

During our Key Stage Two assembly on Wednesday we had some visitors from Larkspur Primary School. They brought their Olympic torch and handed it over to our Sports Ambassadors. Their torch was brilliant. Our Olympic torch will be taken down to Colegate Primary School on Monday. A huge thankyou to Mrs Bulch and the Sports Ambassadors for making it.
Last night a group of 26 children from Year 5/6 perfomed an excellent Musical Medley. The children have worked hard over the last couple of weeks and this has paid off because their performance was amazing!!! Well done to all the children who performed and thank you to all the parents, grandparents, relatives and carers who came to support them.
Okay, okay, so he’s easy to spot here. A fun day was had by all. Fantastic costumes were worn to celebrate the wonderful world of books. Look inside your own class section to find out what each class got up to!
