All children at Woodlands Academy celebrated Holi, the Festival of Colour, with the Hindu members of our community.  We enjoyed taking part in Diya painting workshops, and created some beautiful pieces.  The visitor running the workshops was overwhelmed with the positive behaviour and attitudes of our children and said that, at Woodlands Academy, she ‘encountered the most well-behaved, courteous, friendly and well mannered children’.  We could not be more proud that an external visitor recognised what we know to be true.

We are so proud of Y6s this term. Their continued effort with their learning has been incredible and this was seen in their most recent mock  SATs tests. The progress they have made since the last data point has been incredible. All the hard work of interventions, boosters and the additional home learning is starting to pay off. The children celebrated their success with a lovely breakfast on golden Friday and an afternoon of sport with GTSET.




The children of Woodlands Academy have attended lots of sporting events this term; from dodgeball, to cross country, to football… we’ve attended it all.


Our Dodgeball team were an absolute credit to the academy at their tournament, and we were extremely proud to have been awarded the title of  Most Sporting Team in the tournament.  Our children played fairly and with integrity, and were delighted for the winning opposition.


In Cross Country, our children ran tirelessly through the wind and mud, never giving up.  We even managed to bring home two medals for 2nd place in the Year 6 boys’ race, and 3rd in the Year 4 girls’ race.  Well done Ashton and Belle!


We also took a team of footballers to Bradley to take part in a local competition.  Our team came top of the league, and are now going on to the next round of the competition in Rochdale later this month, with the support of GTSET.  Two of our children were also scouted by Grimsby Town Football Club at this competition; what an achievement!


Over the term we have been celebrating reading. The children have created some amazing ‘Book in a box’ sculptures that are proudly displayed in our ever growing library area. We have also launched our ‘Bedtime book’ bags for YR-4 and ‘Nighttime novels’ for Y5-6. On World Book day we celebrated our love of reading by having a whole school reading session, this is where every adult selected a book to read and the children had the opportunity to pick the book they wanted to listen to. The staff and the children loved this and it was great to see such a love of reading around school
