Enrichment for Learning
In the Autumn, we celebrated Saints day. We moved around the classes, finding out all about our house saints. We took part in cooking, drama, art and writing activities during the day.
60th Birthday Celebrations!
In June 2017, St Wulstan's was 60 years old! We celebrated all week, creating a museum of our school over the past 60 years, hosting parties. We even had a fish and chip picnic lunch! Each year group focussed on a decade during the week, and on Thursday we all dressed up as people from that decade.
Happy Birthday St Wulstan's!
During the week beginning 23rd May, we celebrated different faiths at St Wulstan's. Each year group focussed on a different faith. These were:

During the week, every class took part in a range of activities including: visiting the synagogue, visiting the Mosque, meditation sessions, speakers of different faiths visiting each class, art work, cookery and lots more! Take a look at the photos of the week below:

World Book Day
On Thursday 3rd March, the whole school celebrated World Book Day. Staff and pupils dressed up as their favourite book character, and classes took part in a range of activities linked to reading and story books.
Each class teacher chose a 'Best Costume' and the winners received a book as a prize.
We also used the day to launch our 'Extreme Reading' competition. Children and parents were challenged to be caught reading somewhere exciting and unusual, and photograph their efforts. The most imaginative places will win a prize.
See below for activities that took place throughout the day:
'Key Strings' came into school to show us how different string instruments work. They made playing instruments look really cool! Some pupils got to play the instruments along with the men.
