Tree of Kindness.

During our kindness week in school the children were set the challenge of achieving 1000 kindness acts by the end of the week.  The children were asked to think about ways they can be kind to other people and to record these on post it notes.  

We managed to achieve this goal by gaining 1014 kindness notes by the end of that week.

Well done to everyone, especially Acorns Class who collected the most as a class with 310 post it notes.  

Valentine's Day

Here at Wood Lane love has  been in the air.  We celebrated Valentine's Day with lots of different activities.

We had a Key Stage 2 disco.



We offered the children the chance to purchase cupcakes for someone special in their life.  




We had a raffle.

Whole School Christmas Party 2019

On our last day before Christmas, the whole school joined together to party!  We all had a dance and had a fantastic time being together. 





Pantomime - Peter Pan Christmas 2019

On Thursday 19th December, Wood Lane went on a whole school trip to watch the pantomime at Crewe Lyceum Theatre.  This year it was Peter Pan and starred Chico and Cannon and Ball.  It was so funny and the children loved it.  We were even treated to an ice cream during the interval!




Christmas Lunches 2019 

This year Christmas lunches took place over three days.  The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was amazing.  Thank you to Mr Buckley for another fantastic meal and thank you to everyone that came and enjoyed it with us.   

Tree of Light 2019

This year, here at Wood Lane we created a Tree of Light that enabled pupils to remember someone special.  The idea was that they decorated their bauble and then we hung it on the tree to celebrate special people to us.  

It looks fantastic.
