Children in Need and Odd Socks Day

 

Today was Children in Need day and we also marked the start of Anti-bullying week. It was great to see all the boys and girls coming to school wearing their odd socks. Thank you for your kind donation to Children in Need.

Anti-Bullying Week and Children and Need 2020

Dear Parents

Anti-bullying (Alliance NI) week begins on Mon 16 November with this year’s theme being ‘United Against Bullying.’

As well as several in class activities on Monday 16 November we will be joining schools all over the UK to spread awareness of Anti-Bullying by wearing odd socks to school (with normal school uniforms).

We are also aware that Friday 13 November is Children in Need Day. Therefore, we plan to celebrate Children in Need Day on Monday 16 November by wearing odd socks.

If you wish to make a donation to the Children in Need charity, simply send the money into the class teacher on Monday 16 November and we will pass all donations on to the BBC Children in Need appeal.

Kind regards

Miss J McAnearney

PDMU Co-Ordinator

 

The Daily Mile Banner

The Daily Mile banner was erected today at the path entrance where our pupils enter school.  This banner is to promote our participation in The Daily Mile.  Each class have enjoyed the challenge of taking part in The Daily Mile during the month of September.  

Time spent outside in the fresh air is good for children – now more than ever. The Daily Mile always happens outdoors and while social distancing restrictions are in place, this activity helps us as a school community to keep our pupils active and to promote their health and wellbeing. 

 

WPS Complete The London Mini Marathon Event 2020

Many of our classes recently took part in the Virgin Money Giving London Marathon.  We registered our school for this event agreeing for everyone to complete the 2.6 mile distance.  Along with more than 100,000 other children across the country our pupils proved energetic participants in completing the full distance.  Well done to all on this great achievement. Take a look at our photo gallery to see how everyone got on.

Foundation Stage Enjoy An Exciting Day With The Sentinus Team

Foundation Stage had a very exciting day with the lovely Sarah Rowland from the Sentinus Team. She educated us on the importance and fun to be had through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The workshop was based around the story of the Three Little Pigs with each class from Primary One and Primary Two each enjoying their own individual slot.

During each session the children got the opportunity to explore the various materials used to build the three little pigs homes with every child being given time to explore each of the stations.
