Children from across our Federation are celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.
As part of The Big Help Out, His Majesty has asked thousands of organisations across the country to give us all the chance to help out in our own local communities. The children of Woolton Hill have been determined to get involved and give something back to the village.
Each class has thought really carefully about how they can make a real difference. Next week pupils from St Thomas Infant School will take part in a 'sponsored danceathon'. We are asking parents to 'sponsor' their children by donating food items, which will be passed onto the Newbury Foodbank.
At Woolton Hill Junior Lower KS2 pupils came up with the excellent idea of setting up a Community Book Swap outside the school gates. Do pop along to either donate a book or see if you can find your next novel.
Upper Key Stage two will paint 'pebbles of kindness' and will distribute these around the village. If you find a pebble when out walking, please do send a photograph and details of where you found it to email@example.com, or add it to an upcoming Facebook post. I wonder where they'll crop up?
Community organisations have kindly provided our children with commemorative gifts to help them remember this historical event. East Woodhay Parish Council have given each child a special mug and the Parent Teacher Associations from both of our schools have provided a lovely book mark. These will be valued by our children as wonderful mementos and we would like to thank these organisations for their generosity.
