Welcome to a new year.
Welcome to the Pine Class! Throughout the year there will be information about the activities we have done and photos. This term the children will be focusing on the following:
In November we will be visited by the Plympton FIre Service to talk to the children about fire safety and smoke alarms.
This week is Anti-bulling week. On Monday we talked about what bullying is, how people feel when they are bullied and what to do if you are being bullied. At Woodford we take bullying very seriously and is not tolerated.
Fire Service Visit
This afternoon we had a visit by 2 fire officers from Plympton Fire Station to talk to us about fire safety. We looked at potential fire risks in the home, what to do if we found lighters or matches and how to check smoke alarms. Some of us even got to dress in fire fighting uniforms.
Mayflower 400 Poetry Competition
2020 will see the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrim Fathers leaving Plymouth on their voyage aboard The Mayflower to America. To celebrate this important date, Plymouth City Council have asked children across the city to write poems on the theme of "Over the Horizon" which could be included in an anthology. As a school we all wrote poems linked to the unit of work we were covering at the end of the first half term. Each class teacher choose 3 which were judged by the school's English Subject Leader. 1 poem was chosen as the class winner which was read out in a special assembly and submitted to be judged for the anthology. Well done to James for writing the Pine class' winning poem about fireworks.
Fireworks are pink
Fireworks are gold
Fireworks are all different colours, it really matter.
Fireworks are pretty
fireworks are bright
fireworks are fiery and they light up the night.
Fireworks go bang and crash
we don't mind
They are so pretty
They can't go away until dawn.
