Sports Day

20th Jul 2017

On Monday 17th July, we held our schools Sports Day; everyone took part from Foundation Stage to Year 6. There were a range of activities including: Rugby, Netball, Hockey and an Obstacle Race. The four houses (Kite, Kestrel, Merlin and Peregrine) each were divided into six teams with a team captain and vice captain. It was great fun and we enjoyed working with all different ages as a team! The results were added up over lunch time and revealed in a whole school assembly. Merlin 6 came third with a total of 295, Peregrine came second with a total of 348 and Kestrel 5 won with a total of 359. Well done to everyone that took part!

Wychwood's Got Talent

17th Jul 2017

'On Friday, we had the final of Wychwood's Got Talent. One act from each class got voted in by their class mates and then the School Council each chose a Wild Card from their class. The Wild Card acts then re-auditioned to win a place in the final. It was really fun to watch and all of the children worked really hard. Well done to Annie and Reuben for winning the KS2 prize and Sycamore Class for winning the KS1 prize.'

What a busy couple of weeks for Year 5!

23rd Jun 2017

Over the past couple of weeks we have been very busy. We went to Burford to perform at the KS2 partnership Music Festival. It was very hot but we were pleased with our performance. We also went to an Enrichment Day, again at Burford. We took part in lessons and the D & T lessons were really fun because we made our own mugs, clocks, bookmarks or cupcakes. We've also visited the Pitt Rivers museum where we looked at Evolution and the Dinosaurs. We did an amazing iPad trail with Steve Backshore. Over the past couple of weeks we have also been practising for our cycling proficiency awards. It was hard cycling in the rain and then extreme heat but we all worked very hard. Finally we also had a very sporty Athletics day at Burford, where we got to experience lots of different sports with our partnership schools. We've been making lots of new friends!

R.E. Curriculum Day

23rd Jun 2017

We have all had an exciting day exploring Humility in the Bible. Some of us explored what we meant by 'Don't judge a book by its cover'. We discussed why we need to look at a person from the inside - not just judging them by what they looked like.

KS1 Sponsored Walk

19th May 2017

This afternoon, the KS1 children departed on an adventure into the depths of Shipton! The weather was kind and the children were in high spirits as they headed towards the wild gardens. They then proceeded to walk around the lake, stopping to admire the ducklings, and then out into Diggers Wood. The children were raising money for three Wildlife charities that they had chosen: Crocodiles of the World, Wychwood Wild Garden and The British Divers Marine Rescue. The walk was part of a nationwide attempt to break a World Record for the largest number of people taking part in a sponsored walk at one time. To mark this moment, the children counted down and a huge cheer broke out at 2.15pm. The walk was rounded off with a well deserved, refreshing ice lolly on the school field! The children were fantastically behaved, as always, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
