Headteacher weekly blog – Friday 17th October

We have had two lovely celebrations in school this week.

On Tuesday 14th our year 5 children led our harvest festival celebration at St. Stephen’s church. They did really well and helped us all realise the hard work that goes into growing, transporting and selling the food that we eat. Lots of parents were able to join us at St. Stephens and it was good to see the church full for this annual occasion.

On Thursday 16th we had our first class assembly of the year. Class 5 children were able to tell us about some of the themes they have already enjoyed learning about. They told us all about electricity and about some of the important inventions that we now take for granted. We were asked to imagine a world without windscreen wipers, television or the internet. Without these we wouldn’t be able to drive in the rain, enjoy Strictly Come Dancing, or receive top quality weekly blogs from Woodville Junior School. See if your children can remember anything about the people who invented these three things and see which one they think is the most important.
