Monday 8th October 2018- BRITISH JUDO COMMONWEALTH CHAMPION COMES TO WOLLESCOTE!
On Monday 8th October, Wayne McDonald, a Commonwealth Gold Medallist attended Wollescote Primary School to talk and demonstrate the sport of Judo. The children were thrilled to have such a highly respected and trained athlete come into our school. They thrived from the energy, and laughed hysterically when both Mrs Petchey and Mr Horton were used during demonstrations. The purpose of the assembly, was to inspire children to get involved in a different sport, and have the confidence to try and learn something new.

On Friday 16th November, Wollescote welcomed hundreds of ducks to school (pretend ones) to be raced on our very own slip and slide. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were thrilled to take part. Alongside this, Mrs Petchey and the sports council team organised a fun-filled lunchtime with decorate the duck, arts and crafts, dance and music, penalty shoot out and dodgeball. What a fantastic day! Well done to all the staff that helped out- in particular Mr Horton and Mr Brookes for making the lunchtime such a great success!
