Latest news from this week
There have been some exciting events happening at Wyre Forest School recently….
World Book Day
Wyre Forest School Celebrated World Book Day yesterday. Staff and pupils looked amazing and photos will be on our website soon.
Book Tokens from the Lower School pupils were exchanged and children chose a book to take home.
Tilly from MAPLE Class earned this badge at brownies for being a friend to animals. A guide dog visited her group and she learned all about what they do and how to look after them. There was lots of opportunity to ask questions and Tilly learnt lots.
Well done Tilly!
7P pupils were very excited to use the new play equipment as part of their PSHE lesson.
A group of students from years 8, 9 and 10 attended a dance festival on Tuesday at Kidderminster College. Our girls were very excited and enjoyed taking part in a variety of workshops led by tutors from the college.They were most impressed with our girls who also picked up “moves” from Urban, Jazz and Contemporary styles. In the afternoon our group performed a dance medley showing many different dancing styles which they had been practising with their dance teacher, Miss Hopkins, which they had been working on for a number of weeks at their Dance Club. They showed how confident they were by performing in front of a large group of students and staff from both the college and other schools in the area.
The girls were all amazing and worked really hard and weren’t fazed at all about dancing on a stage in front of so many people. “Well Done Girls – you did yourself and the school proud!”
Charity Move for Money Event
8F are very pleased to announce that the charity event they organised was a huge success, bringing in Dave the minion as their surprise visitor was a huge success.
A big thank you to everyone who supported our money raising activity. We raised £55 for Sport Relief and £55 for Cancer Research.
This week Willow class had fun in creative curriculum; we explored the Egyptian process of mummification. We all took it in turns to learn about each of the jobs and to become a mummy. They did seem to have lots of fun wrapping up Miss Harley! We have also mummified apples and are waiting for the results!!!
Guru Nanak Gurdwara
8F & 8I visited the spectacular Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Smethwick. It was a fantastic day, involving a tour around the building, question and answering sessions, a look in the art gallery and was perfectly topped off with a tasting session in the Langar, where the pupils sampled traditional Indian cuisine. The visit was a fantastic experience and we were made very welcome. I have since received an email praising the behaviour and attitude of the pupils whilst in the building. At all times pupils respected the beliefs and customs and adhered to them.
Well done guys – you have made WFS very proud!!
