We have been awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark and the IQM website have published a news story on their website. Please enjoy reading.
The school embarked on the IQM assessment journey in recognition of its ethos to place the ‘inclusion of all children and their families at its centre’ alongside its School as Sanctuary Award and its work to develop strong working relationships and partnerships with organisations to enhance its own support.
The children took part in a flag hunt of flags representing all of the nationalities of Wombridge school.
On Friday 6th October, the school had an inspirational assembly led by Olympic swimmer Amy Smith. The children took part in a sponsored circuit of sporting activities. Well done everyone!!
Children in Y5 and Y6 visited RAF Cosford with Mrs Owen to take part in a STEM workshop.
The children took part in exciting Science assemblies, which involved lots of wow moments in response to chemical reactions. Children learnt so much from these workshops and inspired them to develop a love of curiosity and interest in how the world works!
Year 2 took part in a Great Fire of London workshop. The Great Fire of London is one of the most famous fires in history. It took place in 1666 and caused extensive destruction in the city of London. The fire lasted for three days, destroying more than 13,000 buildings and leaving tens of thousands of people homeless. It was a devastating event, yet it had a significant impact on the city and its people. The children explored facts about the Great Fire of London and the extent of the destruction it caused, the causes of the fire, and how it was eventually put out. They also learn about the legacy of the fire and how it helped shape London into the bustling city it is today.
We are very excited to be welcoming top athlete Amy Smith to Wombridge on Friday, 06 October 2023.
Amy will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, followed by a motivational assembly, and Q&A session. The aim of the event is to inspire our pupils to be more physically active, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and pursue their passion in life.
The event will both connect the pupils to an extraordinary athlete role model and raise money to improve physical activity in the school, as well as supporting both athletes and para-athletes, so that they can continue to inspire the next generation.
Please complete a sponsorship form for your child to use to help raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by visiting: www.sportsforschools.org and clicking on the button “Set up a Fundraiser Page”. Alternatively, you can scan the QR code to go directly to the online sponsorship page.
As a thank you, pupils will receive the following thank-you gifts for meeting these milestones:
- Raise £5 or more: a blue Sports for Schools wristband
- Raise £15 or more: a blue wristband, and a red wristband with Amy’s signature
- Raise £30 or more: all of the above, plus a signed Amy Smith poster
Please ensure that the sponsorship form and money are returned to the school office 1 week after the event has taken place.
Please also make sure that your children come to school on the event day with their PE Kits!
Thank you in anticipation of creating a terrific and memorable event.
