Headteacher Message Friday 24th May 2024

What a busy half term that has been. We have had residential trips, KS2 SATs, a wide range of sporting events and bikeability training for KS1. I think the staff and children are ready for a well earned break.

The children have been collecting their house points this term and have earned an “afternoon of fun on the field.” Lets hope the weather holds out and they can enjoy their treat.

Miss Weston will be leaving us at the end of this academic year and the school have been busy interviewing for a replacement teacher. As part of the recruitment process the school council were given the task of asking the candidates some very tough questions. They were all fantastic and a credit to the school. We had some outstanding candidates but the school selected Miss Waters who is a fantastic teacher. Miss Waters will be joining us in September.

The postponed Year 5 parent consultations will take place on Tuesday 4th June and Tuesday 11th June. Time slots can be booked through Arbor.

I hope everyone has a nice break and I look forward to seeing you all when we return on Monday 3rd June.

Mr Litchfield

Meal deal choice on school menu after half term for KS2

After half term we are pleased to be able to offer children in Years 3,4,5 and 6 the opportunity to have a meal deal type lunch from our school kitchen.

As the warmer weather comes, it will be great for children to have the opportunity to have a sandwich, crisps, biscuit and piece of fruit.

The sandwiches will be cheese or ham or tuna and can be ordered in the morning along with the other lunches as usual.

Millie the chocolate labrador will be visiting school

We had a treat for the children at Much Wenlock Primary this Friday.
Millie, our beautiful chocolate labrador came in to school today to visit the children. This is the first time we have had a visit from a dog in school and the children have really enjoyed her. She has been in to Nursery where all the children had an opportunity to stroke her. She has been out on the playground and field as well with the children, as well as in the office with Mrs Enticknap.

Penny Wars has started

And the sabotage has started!!!

The children are bringing their pennies in for the class, and every class has already been sabotaged.

There is also a jar in the office which has silver coins but no coppers, so the children are loving it! Parents and visitors are welcome to pop their pennies in this.

Please support our Penny Wars as we raise money for our Forest School area.

Mrs Enti’s Ice Cream Shop will open on a Friday afternoon starting after half term

Ice creams and lollies will be sold for £1.00 each to raise money for our Forest School area. Please pay with cash at the window.

They will be available to buy from 2.50pm – 3.30pm on a Friday afternoon from Mrs Enti’s Ice Cream Shop ( the office window!)

We look forward to seeing you then

Headteacher Message Friday 17th May

That has been a very intense SATs week for the Year 6 children. Everyone was so impressed by their attitude and resilience when the tests this week. The maths on Wednesday  was a very tricky paper but all the children gave it their best.

As part of the school rewards system individual children can earn house points. These are collected up over time and go towards earning whole school rewards. Next Friday the children will have earned an afternoon of “fun on the field.” Well done to all the children for their hard-work.

Everyone at Much Wenlock Primary School and Nursery send their best wishes to Miss Watson who has undergone surgery on her knee. We wish her a speedy recovery. Mr Wood will be teaching the Year 3 class next week to cover.

The school is continuing to have a bit of a facelift with all the lighting being replaced for LED lights. This will help save energy and reduce our electricity bill.

Have a nice weekend

Mr Litchfield

Second Hand Uniform

Just a reminder that we still have second hand uniform available for you to buy in the cupboard in the school foyer. Each item is £1.00.

We still have new uniform available here at discounted prices as we are trying to slowly sell it off. This is 20% cheaper than the cost of new uniform from our supplier shop – Lads &Lasses in Bridgnorth. A couple of sizes of certain items are no longer available to buy from school. However, please feel free to contact me before purchasing to check what is available. This is an ideal way to purchase uniform for September.

Once it has gone, it’s gone!!

The nice weather has been a pleasant change recently. One added bonus of the sunshine is we can use the field at lunchtimes. This is always popular with the children and they make good use of our wonderful grounds.

The Year 4 children have spent the last 3 days enjoying a range of outdoor activities at the Pioneer Centre. I’m sure there will be lots of tired children this weekend. Look out for the photos on our school Facebook page.

Well done to the KS1 cross country runners. They put on a magnificent show at the cross country competition this week with Much Wenlock runners picking up the top three spots.

Next week the Year 6 children will be taking their end of KS2 SATs. These test start on Monday and continue until Thursday. I’m sure the children will all perform at their best and the results will reflect their hard work over the years.

Have a nice weekend

Exciting news about payments for school meals and Wrap around care

Arbor has just been updated and we are now able to take card payments at the office for school meals and Wrap Around Care, which will make it easier for payments for parents and carers at times when you do not have access to Arbor.

You will need to bring your card to the office and we can add it on for you.

Unfortunately, clubs, trips and the school shop have not been included yet, so we will let you know if this changes.

The Reception and Year 1 children have really enjoyed learning to cycle this week. They showed great resilience and the trainers were full of praise for all the children. The Year 5 children were all invited for an extra swimming session at William Brookes School. Again the staff commented on the excellent behaviour of the children.

Next week the Year 4 children are off to the Pioneer Centre for a two night residential. I’m sure they will have a great time taking part in all the exciting activities planned.

Just a reminder that Monday is a Bank Holiday.

Have a nice extended weekend.

Headteacher Message Friday 26th April 2024

It’s been a lovely week here at Much Wenlock Primary School this week. I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to teach the Year 1 class and I have been amazed by their fantastic artwork. I must admit I did especially enjoy the forest school session with them on Friday afternoon. We really do have a wonderful environment for the children  to learn and play in.

The Year 4 children all took part in a Boccia and Kurling competition at William Brookes this week. Both Much Wenlock team A and B were impressive securing gold in both the kurling and bocia events. Well done everyone.

On a more serious note you may have seen the disturbing events at a school in Wales. The security and safety of children, staff and parents are always given top priority. Over the coming weeks we will be evaluating how Much Wenlock School would respond to a critical incident and ensure that our procedures are effective. I will be sending out details of these procedures to ensure parents know what to expect in an emergency. All this will be done sensitively and without discussing any details with the children to avoid raising their concerns.

As always, if you have anything you would like to discuss about the school , both negative and positive, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Have a nice weekend

Mr Litchfield.

It’s been another busy week in school this week. Unfortunately we have had a number of children and staff off ill, hopefully everyone will be back in full health soon. Thank you to all the parents who attended the parent consultation meetings. If you have not yet had chance to meet your child’s teacher please contact the school and we can arrange a suitably convenient time.

A group of Upper Key Stage 2  children were fortunate enough to have been invited to Shrewsbury High School to take part in a Techanthon. This involved working in groups to solve various challenges. The children really enjoyed themselves and the Wenlock team came a very admirable second in a really difficult and competitive competition.

The Key Stage 2 SATS assessments are quickly approaching. These assessments are designed to test the children’s knowledge of the whole Key Stage 2 curriculum.  The children are working incredibly hard  to make sure they are as prepared as possible! As ever, we will support and help the pupils, to have confidence and just do their best.

Let’s hope the weather picks up soon.

Have a nice weekend.

Welcome back after the Easter break. I hope everyone enjoyed having the children at home for the two weeks.

Just a reminder that parent consultations will be taking place over the coming weeks. You can sign up for a time slot on Arbor. If you have any difficulties finding a time please contact the class teacher and they will organise a mutually suitable time to meet.

We are delighted to welcome back Mrs Nicholas into Year 1 after finishing her maternity leave. The children were very excited to see her and mage her feel very welcome.

We are constantly looking at improving the after school club offer and Mrs Enticknap has been busy organising a range of new clubs. You can sign up for these in the usual way through Arbor.

Have a nice weekend

Headteacher Message Friday 21st March 2024

Another busy term draws to end. Although this has been a short term, I think the children are all ready for a well earned break.

Mrs Kennils has been working hard with the school council over the last few weeks. They have come up with some fantastic ideas on how we can improve the school. We are in the process of developing a dedicated page on the school website to showcase all of their ideas and efforts.

Mrs Nicholas will be returning from her maternity leave after the Easter break and will be teaching the Year 1 class for the rest of the academic year. I would like to thank Miss Orchard, who has been covering this maternity leave, for all the hard work and dedication she has shown to the school and the children. On behalf of all the school I wish her well as she starts a new and exciting career teaching in Wolverhampton.

Mrs Furber and our KS2 runners braved the rain when they took part in the quarry at Shrewsbury this week. Although the heavens opened during the race the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

I hope you all have a nice Easter break and I look forward to seeing you all after the holiday. Don’t forget the first day back is a PD day so the children will start back school on Tuesday 9th April.

Thank you

Mr Litchfield

Sunday saw children from Much Wenlock Primary School and other local schools take part in Live Arts at the weekend. The children were fantastic and we are incredibly proud of every child that entered, regardless of the outcome. It demonstrates bravery and tenacity to perform to a room full of competitors and observers – you felt the fear and did it any way.

A huge thank you to The Live Arts team – warm, encouraging and extremely well organised. Thank goodness there are incredible volunteers who give up their time to provide such great opportunities for our children.
Our curriculum drivers are Community, Communication, Connections, Change.
This was demonstrated in abundance this weekend. This is The Wenlock Way.

Have a nice weekend.

Mr Litchfield
