Woodseaves Academy has an exciting new project that will be getting underway in the next few weeks. Mrs Quigley has successfully applied for a grant for the school from the National Lottery and this has enabled the school to develop some of the outside space. This new space will help us to continue our development of a healthy and active school life. We are all working hard to ensure the pupils at this school know how important it is for them to be as active as they can and to lead a healthy lifestyle. We will keep you up to date with this exciting project!
On Thursday 31st January 2018, the Reception children went to the Brampton Museum in Newcastle-Under-Lyme to explore toys from the past. They had a super day looking at and playing with the toys and got the chance to also make their own out of recycled materials.
The children in Reception spent a wonderful afternoon with Nanna Ferry, looking at all the toys she used to play with when she was a child.
What a fun day the children had, dressed in their own or spotty clothes. They all made “spotty” biscuits in the Hall in the afternoon and played fun games.

Thank you to everyone that came to our community morning on Saturday to start our revamp of the Quiet Area. It was hard work but we managed to clear the area thanks to Mr Gough’s mini digger and lots of wheelbarrows full of soil and concrete. Thank you to Mrs Armishaw for the lovely brownies, they were very much appreciated. There is more work to be done but the aim is to get it finished before we break for Summer. Next job will be laying the path!
On Monday classes 2 and 3 were fortunate to take part in a songwriting workshop with 2 members of Manchester Camerata, using Shakespeare’s Macbeth as a stimulus. The song that they created together sounded great and the descriptive language the children came up with for the lyrics, were really effective! All the children and teachers found it a fascinating and enjoyable experience. They will be performing their songs at the GateHouse Theatre on February 13th.
