Christingle Service, by Mrs Edwards

Date: 11th Dec 2019 @ 1:43pm

On Tuesday 10th December 2019, the children at Woodcocks' Well took part in a wonderful Christingle service at St. Luke's Church. The children all created their own Christingle on Monday and were taught about the significance of the different elements of the Christingle. We had a lovely service led by Reverend Phillip followed by the lighting of the Christingles for the whole school. There was a lovely atmosphere when the lights were turned off in a moment of reflection with only the candles burning. The service was ended with the children and congregation singing 'Shine Jesus Shine' which was very fitting for the event! It was a fantastic service and enjoyed by all who attended. 

Mad Science , by Miss Booth

We had a very exciting assembly this morning! We welcomed ‘Turbo Tom’ from ‘Mad Science’ into school, who shared lots of exciting experiments with us all focused around the 2020 Olympic Games! 

 I think the children will agree, that this assembly was most certainly one of their favourites. There will be a ‘Mad Science’ after-school running after Christmas for the Key Stage 1 children, who should have come home with a letter today with the details of how to book on. Following on from this, there will be a club for the Key Stage 2 children.
