Thanks to Friends of Weddington Primary School, the whole school were treated to a fantastic panto performance of Peter Pan. The children and staff all loved watching this truly amazing end of year extravaganza.
Having studied Earth and Space, as part of their Science work, Year Five recently visited the National Space Centre, Leicester. It was a fantastic day out and was great to see the children getting so involved in the Earth and Space workshop. They also really enjoyed their trip up the rocket tower and the 'Astronauts' planetarium show. We were very proud of their behaviour throughout the trip - they were a credit to our school!
Today we welcomed Malcolm from Severn Trent in to school, Malcolm spent the first part of the morning in 3CS before holding a whole school assembly and moving in to 3ER after break.
Thanks to his visit, we now know loads of fascinating information about the water cycle. Amongst the information we found out were facts about where our water comes from and how it gets to us, how long it takes to clean the water and how it gets back to the rivers after we have used it. We were given valuable lessons on how we could save water and discovered that we only actually use 1% of the Earths water, 2% is frozen and 97% of the worlds water cannot be accessed.
Thanks to the 'Into Film' Festival, Year 5 and 6 went to see Rock Dog at the Odeon. It was a brilliant film, had us all laughing out loud on more than one occasion. A great morning out, enjoyed by all the children and staff.
Thanks to the 'Into Film' Festival, Year 3 and 4 went to see Moana at the Odeon. Wow, what a fantastic film! Thoroughly enjoyed by everyone on the trip.
WOW! It was magnificent to welcome author and illustrator Mini Grey in to school on the 9th November. While in Year 2, Mini ran a work shop centred around her book Traction Man, they have really enjoyed reading it in Year 2 as part of their topic. She spoke about her well loved characters and showed the children how to draw them too (she kindly donated her 2 bespoke illustrations to the school). After her demonstration the children had a go at drawing Scrubbing Brush for themselves.
Knowing that the current Year 3 children had fallen in love with Traction Man last year when they were in Year 2, Mini went to run a workshop especially for Year 3!
Our Year 2's were also treated to a personal book signing session and then Mini was kind enough to stay after school too, signing books for the rest of her fans (there were lots!).
Special thanks to Friends of Weddington Primary School for funding this visit and giving the children a truly special day.
Year 3 were honoured to welcome the RNLI in to their classrooms, they found out incredibly important information on how to stay safe when they visit the seaside or when near a river. The children were fascinated to find out the history of the RNLI and to learn about the different roles the organisation undertake.
Weddington School welcomed two representatives from the Dogs Trust to our assembly on Tuesday 31st October, in the assembly we learnt all about dogs behaviour, what to do if we are frightened by a dog and how to approach a strange dog.
Year 4 were then lucky enough to have the ladies go back to their classes and continue their teaching, back in classrooms they found out all about the dogs senses.
Thank you to Steph, the swim manager from the Pingles Leisure Centre, who came to visit us today (2nd February).
She delivered a fantastic assembly telling us exactly how we can stay safe when we are swimming. We found out about dangers we may face, not only in the swimming pool but also in open water areas such as the beach. Also, she told us how to raise the alarm if we see someone in danger.
In December, the whole school were treated to a visit to Bedworth Civic Hall to see
......Ohhhh yes, we did!
