Being part of Wessington Primary School is more than just coming to school, so on this page we celebrate everything that makes us special.
Visit From The Super Splash Heroes
This week we had a visit from The Super Splash Heroes who told us how to be water wise and try to save as much water as possible. The whole school enjoyed the performance and then took part in workshops with the heroes.
On Tuesday night we invited our wonderful families into the school to take part in crazy fun and games as part of our family night, which ended with some questionable scoring and one unlucky member of staff getting a gunge shower! Keep your eyes peeled for the next one.
Royal Wedding Tea Party
On Friday afternoon, to celebrate the royal wedding, the whole school took to the field to take part in a wide range of activities including: wedding dancing, a wedding photo booth and a patriotic music lesson.
As you can see the children loved their time outside in the beautiful weather.
Young Achievers Awards Night
Recently our anti-bullying team were recognised by the Young Achievers Service as being the best in their age group across the city.
Some of our wonderful anti-bullying team, along with staff, were invited to the Stadium of Light for the awards night where we were ecstatic to find out we had won! We are extremely proud of everything the children in the team have achieved and the amount of hard work they have put in to make sure their ideas have been implemented across the school.
Easter Egg Competition 2018
On Wednesday, the whole school came together to decorate their eggs for this years egg decorating competition. The children loved working on their creations and there were some amazing results!
Sports Relief 2018
The whole school helped raise approximately £150 for Sports Relief to continue their fantastic work by coming in dressed in sports clothes. We also took part in sports based activities all day including: Fitblast sessions, mathsercise, ukulele line dancing and year 5 and 6 took part in gymnastics with our coach Joe.
World Book Day
The whole school and staff loved coming into school dressed as characters from their favourite books. The children had fun with classroom based book activities taking place as well as the older children reading with the younger ones.
After three days off school due to the snow; a group of staff, their children and friends as well as one eager parent helped clear the school yard and paths on Sunday morning to make it safe for the school to open again on Monday.
During the 3 snow days we set a challenge to our families – get your hats and gloves on and see who could build the best snowman. Children of all ages across the school (and staff too) loved spending time with their families in the snow, having fun building their fantastic creations.
Harry Potter Day
Back in September the weather may have stopped our family picnic but the children still had an amazing Harry Potter Day! They met the Hogwarts Owls who loved our children and would only do what the children asked them to do! Then they have laughed until their tummies hurt at the magic show on the afternoon! A brilliant day all round.
