At Woodthorpe we are very lucky to have such a wonderful natural resource: our forest! Every year group has the opportunity to explore and investigate the natural world first hand. From pirate topic launches, den building, scavenger hunts, forest weddings, mini beast hunts, making clay faces on trees, working across year groups to build relationships and look after the younger children to planting more trees to help extend our forest we do a bit of everything there and we love it! It allows us to have the independence to lead our own learning and develop key skills such as perseverance, problem solving and risk-taking. See some of the activities that we have done this year in these pictures.

Sunflower Festival - Raising money for St Leonards Hospice.

This week, 20 children from KS2 joined 1000 other school children from all over York at the Brownlee Foundation mini triathlon at York Sport Village. The event included a 30m swim followed an 800m bike ride and finally a 300m sprint to the finish line where the children were greeted by a goodie bag and medal. Everyone who took part did amazingly and it was definitely a day to remember!

Our year 5/6 Basketball team took part in a Basketball tournament against other schools from across York. We were lucky enough to have 3 teams representing Woodthorpe, with one team coming an amazing second place in the tournament All the teams played brilliantly- well done Woodthorpe!

This year, years 5 and 6 had an incredible time at Robinwood, partaking in activities ranging from the infamous piranha pool, to the 30ft giant swing! The children were fantastically behaved and excelled at activities requiring resilience, perseverance and determination. Many of us achieved and accomplished things that we would never have dreamed of attempting before and everybody was incredibly proud of both themselves and others.

St Leonard's Hospice Assembly

This Year at Woodthorpe, we are taking part in St Leonard's sunflower festival. Every child in the school will be making their very own sunflower. We was lucky enough to meet Lenny the bear who explained to us how the hospice care for people. Lenny the bear showed us different ideas about how we could make our sunflowers. We can't wait to see what 400 sunflowers will look like!
