Wisborough Green Primary School News

April 2017 

Land Ahoy! We started this half term with an invasion of pirates and mermaids. They sailed the Wisborough Seas, drew treasure maps and helped us find the gold! We were lucky they were friendly so enjoyed writing letters to them everyday!

 Keeping the children safe online is something we are having to spend an increasing amount of time on in school. Technology is more readily available to children and they are able to access the World Wide Web with ease. We were visited by the NSPCC and PC Phillips to help us develop skills to keep safe, especially online. We were very proud to hear that Henry won the JSPC prize for the best 'Internet Safety Poster'. His poster was chosen out of 2850 entries across Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. He won a 500 voucher for the school and a digital camera. Well done Henry!

 Everyone enjoyed World Book Day, wearing an accessory representing their favourite book character. It was fun guessing who everyone was, by the clues they brought in. Everyday is book day for us at WGPS so we took the opportunity to share our love of books with families and friends. Thank you to everyone who shared their love of books with us.

 Ten lucky children were chosen to take part in a locality sporting event with a difference. They enjoyed archery, wheelchair basketball and skateboarding - to name a few. They loved their morning and came back full of inspiration. We are now looking forward to welcoming a paralympian later in the term. It is not just about learning a new sport though, we continue to learn about the importance of persevering when things are difficult and not giving up.

 We were proud to send our first placed team to the regional Indoor Athletics Finals. They were up against some tough competition and came 3rd overall. In true Wisborough style, they supported each other, rose to the challenge and had lots of fun. Well done to all of our winners!

It seems hard to believe spring is here and summer is around the corner. We are looking forward to our 'Wild Wisborough' topic next term and would like to work with YOU - our local community. If you think you can support us with our topic, then we would love to hear from you. We will be learning about: local history, growing, cooking, healthy minds and business and enterprise. Please contact the school office if you think you can help. office@wisboroughgreenschool.org.uk

Enjoy the spring flowers, the sunshine and the smiles they bring.
