Hot off the press! SWIMSAFE Final Success
Both the Year 5 and the Year 6 Swimsafe Teams did brilliantly today - with the Year 6 Team coming THIRD in the whole of Cornwall. This is an amazing achievement and I am so very proud of all who took part. Wahoo!
5W’s assembly this week went really well – we were dazzled by magic and treated to some superb singing. It was much enjoyed by all and we thank you for all of the support and the (I suspect) hours of practice that would have taken place at home. 5B and Year 1 have their turn next week and we can’t wait!
Shining Stars this week were for excellent presentation and were awarded once more to very deserving pupils – well done to them all as they are all definite Shining Stars. Staff Shining Stars were awarded to Mrs Reeve and Mrs Gallie, both of whom are amazing colleagues and friends and whom we love dearly. Mrs Gallie has in fact taken over from the marvelous Marcia Momber, whose final day at WPA was last Friday. Marcia was never one for a fuss, but she was thoroughly spoiled in her last week and took with her many memories, gifts and cards from all of us. We miss her terribly, but Mrs Gallie is doing a wonderful job and, as ever, thank goodness for Caroline.
Year 5 and Year R continue with their Bikeability and are doing extremely well – Year 5 continue into next week too. We are loving see their cycling confidence grow and we are very grateful to Bikeability for their hard work and patience.
As I mentioned a while ago, Mrs Berridge is very sadly retiring at the end of this term. Talking to her about what she treasures most from her time at Wadebridge Primary, she said that her class photographs and the lovely notes that she has received from her past pupils is waaaaay up there and so I have a big ask for all of those of you who have ever known the lovely Mrs Berridge: if you were ever taught by Mrs Berridge, or you knew her as the teacher of one of your children, please could you send her a note of some kind – either involving a memory or just some good wishes. We will then put them all together so that she has her very own magnificent box of (WPA) memories. Email or real paper very welcome but if sending an email please send to: email@example.com. Thank you.
Now, there are many, many things coming up, but first, please see some messages from our ever fantastic FOWPA:
FOWPA Ground Force Day A Big Success
Last Saturday, members of FOWPA and some very helpful pupils made great progress on the environmental garden. FOWPA hope that with a couple more days work on the area, which includes erecting the teacher's chair and completing the brick edging, it will soon be ready for the children and staff to enjoy.
Finally, a shed to be proud of: THANK YOU COUNTY SIGNS
FOWPA are so pleased to now have their very own shed, where they can store all of the equipment needed for their fundraising activities and their groundforce days. The shed could not have come at a better time when lots of storage is needed for the Summer Fair taking place on Saturday 16th July 2022. FOWPA received a very generous donation of £250 from COUNTY SIGNS based at Winnard's Perch, who specifically wished to help FOWPA fund the purchase of this shed, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH 'COUNTY SIGNS'; your generosity is very much appreciated.
Also, thanks to the fantastic Tom and Emma Taylor who put the shed together last weekend, which you can see was then tested by some very happy children in the FOWPA groundforce team!
PLAYGROUND PLANTERS ARE BURSTING WITH COLOUR THANKS TO TRELAWNEY GARDEN CENTRE
The planters in the school playgrounds have been given a fantastic burst of colour with some lovely bedding plants. FOWPA would like to extend a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Trelawney Garden Centre for their generosity in assisting with this. A huge thank you too, to Wendy Pool, a member of FOWPA, who kindly gave up her day yesterday to plant the flowers. Not only do these look fantastic for the children and staff to enjoy, but the planters are now also more wildlife friendly too, so THANK YOU!
Summer Fair news:
Don’t forget to fill in the FOWPA consent form sent out last week if your child or children would like to take part in the Summer Fair Talent Show and, last but not least, we are collecting 2nd hand toys and books on Monday morning (4 July) and 2nd hand uniform on Wednesday morning (6 July). Thank you all for your support – we are getting really excited now!
