History Day Success!

IMG 1031

Key Stage 2 had a wonderful day on Monday 13th June as they went back in time to find out about the history of Woolmer Green and its surrounding area.  The children experienced and learnt about life in the Roman times, living as a highwayman / highwaywoman, what it was like in the trenches of World War One, and how it would have felt as an evacuee in World War 2. With the help of parents from the school, history was brought to life with costumes and original artifacts, as well as a special visit from Aunty Bel, who was evacuated during the war aged 5. Following the day, children will be writing about one of the eras in History, as well as completing a whole school timeline with KS1, showing key dates in history from when the school was first built. Many thanks to all the parents who gave up their time in order to make this a special day for the children, with special thanks to Mr Harris (George’s Dad in year 6), and Mrs Gloyn for organising the event.

The Welwyn Festival

welwyn festival colour

This year the Welwyn Festival is taking place from Friday 24th June to Sunday 3rd July. There will be lots of events for the local community aimed at raising money for local good causes. This year’s Welwyn Festival is number 42. As any fan of Douglas Adams and science fiction knows, that’s the answer to life, the universe and everything. So, this year’s Festival will have a space theme. This includes an admission-free presentation at 7.30pm on Friday 24th June at the Small Hall of the Civic Centre by local space expert, Jerry Stone FBIS – “Nell, Esther and Aunt Effie: The story of the world’s first liquid-fuelled rocket”. There will be plenty for all the family, including fun runs, a street market, The Welwyn Oscars, a street parade, a Roman day and a classic car display.Throughout Welwyn Week shops and businesses in the village will be taking part in the annual ‘Cuckoo in the Nest’ competition for children. Mystery objects will be in windows throughout the village and the challenge will be to identify those out of place – or the ‘cuckoos’. For more details please go to the welwyn festival website: http://www.welwynfestival.org.uk/.

Results-of-parent-questionnaires-Spring-2016

Dear Parents/carers

 

Thank you to everyone who responded to the Parent Questionnaire.  We received 100 responses in all, which was very pleasing.

 

These have been collated and the results appear on this Website under “Office” – “Statutory info” tab for you to look at. 

 

In most categories your responses were very positive and show a genuine satisfaction with the education your sons/daughters are receiving.

 

I would also like to thank those parents who took time to express further comment. Many of the comments were positive and illustrate the hard work, commitment and skill that is evident on a day to day basis when visiting the school.  Some comments direct us towards areas for future development and going forward I can assure you that these will be carefully considered by The Finance and Resources Committee and when action points are planned they will be communicated to you via the monthly Newsletter.

 

My best wishes to you all.

 

Sue Gray Chair of Governors
