B Cador: December 2018
Kitted out in their Christmas jumpers, Friday was no ordinary Friday for the children at Wrenbury! It very quickly became a very festive Friday full of fun.
A very big thank you to FOWS for providing the children with such a wonderful Father Christmas experience in school on Friday morning, accompanied by two of his reindeers. It was fantastic! The children were enthralled by a very jolly Father Christmas and asked lots of great questions, wanting to know more about him and the two reindeer on site.
The evening saw them very excited about our annual Christmas Fair, again organised by FOWS. We had a great turn out; even Santa decided he'd revisit us (Rotary Club) having had such a wonderful time with us earlier in the day. How lovely, too, to see so many former pupils being reunited with staff and friends.
A huge amount of work goes into organising events like the Christmas Fair; there needs to be lots of parental support, goodwill and generosity of spirit with offers of donations and time to help out before (preparations — hamper making, game creating etc), during and after the event and a GREAT TEAM pulling it all together. Staff at Wrenbury go above and beyond to support, making Christmas crafts to sell with the children, setting up rooms, hosting games and stalls throughout the evening and helping to make school ready again for Monday morning and I can't thank them enough for their boundless energy and commitment to school and the children,. We were also joined by eight of our governors, who also generously helped out during the event and had lots of children offering help to sell their crafts or host games. It was a wonderful event that summed up everything about Wrenbury School; a school that offers all involved with 'a sense of belonging and a sense of community'.
I have to also thank Miss Pitchford and Mrs Charlesworth, all the pupils who volunteered to sing and their accompanying parents for supporting the Wingate Centre's Christmas Winter Wonderland Festivities on Saturday. I have been told that the children sang beautifully. How lovely it is to give back to our community!
Thank you all so very much,

What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...
Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
Continuing to explore our Space theme, the children drew around themselves creating an astronaut and set about decorating it. We have turned our handprints into aliens and wrote our names in glitter. The children finished off their mobile of the planets (we may have discovered a few more than in real life!) and hung this in the classroom. It looks super! Last week we made astronaut packed...
