Dear Parents and Carers, 

You wouldn’t believe it: Miss Lake has been safely delivered of her baby boy already! He arrived a week early and Mum and baby are doing very well indeed. It was a good job that she *did* start her maternity leave last Friday!

Miss Miskowicz has also just popped in to say just how proud she is of the new Reception cohort. They have settled in wonderfully and have coped really well with their first full week. They are a joy to be around and I cannot wait to see them shine even more brightly next week. 

We have had a lovely week. The weather has been very kind and we are all enjoying being outside and playing together in our year groups with our friends.  It is also fantastic to see so many school lunches being eaten – definitely an improvement on meals delivered to classrooms for everyone. 

Our new rules of ‘Be Ready, Be Safe and Be Respectful’ are being followed extremely well and today in our Shining Stars assembly we celebrated the rule ‘Be Ready’. Again, we had some wonderful examples of pupils who are always ready to learn, ready to listen and ready to do anything that is asked of them.  Please see their photos attached – they are a lovely bunch! 

Mrs Wilton and Mr O’Dwyer were also celebrated this week for all that they do for the school and both were thoroughly deserved. They were recommended by other teachers and TAs and were clearly delighted by their Shining Stars certificates.  They received HUGE applause, which was lovely to hear!

The Year 5 WOW day was indeed epic, with all pupils completing painting, modelling, researching, playing games and eating Chinese food.  Everybody thoroughly enjoyed being totally immersed in Chinese Culture all day. 

Next week sees the start of clubs for everyone and swimming for Year 4. Year 4s need to come to school in their school uniform every day but to bring their swimming kit every day and their Forest School clothes on their Forest School days (Tuesday 4B and Thursday 4W).  

Next Tuesday also sees PHOTOGRAPHY DAY. Please make sure that your child is wearing FULL WINTER UNIFORM (as in not summer dresses). Year 2 has PE on that day but please come to school in your SCHOOL UNIFORM and bring your PE kit with you. 

Thank you again for all of your support (especially with the roadworks in town!) and we hope that you have a wonderful weekend. Let’s hope the forecast rain doesn’t materialise and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday. 

Kindest regards,

Ms Whitlock

We have a large two-story Library, separate ICT suite, a well equipped technology room, conference room, resource room, staff room, Teachers’ planning area and associated office space not to mention our fabulous outside areas! This is a school with space and creative opportunities to fill that space!

We are committed to developing all aspects of learning in the creative way to allow children to experience and consider art, dance, drama and digital media and learning outdoors. We offer wrap around care with our on-site club Bridge Kids. Here children are able to join our breakfast and after school facilities from 7.30am-6pm.

Friends of Wadebridge Primary are a well organised group of parents, grandparents and friends who help to organise additional community activities which raise money to provide some of the ‘extras’ our children enjoy including end of term treats, theatre visits, additional school trips and additional resources to use at playtimes.
