Christmas HAF club

What an amazing time 100 children had over 4 days in the Christmas holiday! The HAF club is funded by the DFE/Government and children can attend free or at a highly subsidised price. As you can see children take part in a range of activities including sports not pictured here. Samworth Brothers provided Christmas gifts and the cardboard boxes they arrived in provided hours of fun for den building!
Thank you to staff for working at the club.

Ice Skating

Year 3, 4 and 5 pupils had the opportunity to go ice-skating again this year. It is a difficult activity but despite continually falling over and getting wet, most children mastered balancing and skating to a lesser or greater degree. Well done…you need to be a Resilient Ryan to succeed in this activity!

Christmas dinner

About 400 children had Christmas dinner this year with all the trimmings as well as crackers. As you can see everyone helped out with serving the delicious food.

Christmas Fayre

It was lovely to be able to hold this family event again after 3 years. The Year 6 pupils worked really hard and made £475 for the school enrichment activity fund. As you can see children, mums, dads and staff really enjoyed the afternoon.

Vardy book signing

Mrs Gadsby and 2 Year 6 boys attended the Jamie and Becky Vardy book signing. They all received a signed book which is a story about having aspiration, being yourself and not giving up on your dream. Mrs Gadsby will be telling the story in her new year assembly.

KS1 pupils sing at Abbey House Care Home

The Key Stage 1 children walked down to Abbey House Care Home in the cold and snow to sing to the old ladies and gentlemen. The older generation were inside in the warm, but they really enjoyed the children’s beautiful singing and smiling faces. When it began to snow it made it even more perfect!

Science Open Evening

This was a wonderful occasion which showed off our pupils, staff, governors and families at their best. The school was buzzing. Pupils and their families could take part in science activities across the school, which was great fun as well as great learning. In addition, the gym club pupils showed off their skills and there was an opportunity to try out our lovely school lunches, drink hot chocolate whilst reading about science topics and test our physical and problem solving skills.
Our community policemen also supported our event.

Remembrance Parade

The whole school paraded around the school to present their poppy wreathes at the Peace Garden. The children in Y5 also made individual poppies from buttons which you can see in some of the pictures.
It was lovely to have members of the whole school community present: pupils, staff, parents and governors. Thank you to Mr Hill who played the Last Post throughout.
We remember all those who have given their lives across the world so that we can live freely.

Kick out Racism

6 Stokes Wood pupils were given a last minute invitation to attend a Kick out Racism event at the Leicester City King Power Stadium. As you can see there were some top players there. The children met Ashleigh Plumtre from the Ladies team, Patson Dacca from the men’s team and Wes Morgan the winning captain of the Premier League in 2016.
More important was the message that there is NO ROOM FOR RACISM ANYWHERE. We are a NO OUTSIDERS school. Everybody is welcome at Stokes Wood Primary School, whatever their race, culture, religion, gender and disability.

On Thursday 13th October, LCitC held an event at King Power Stadium celebrating Black History Month and supporting the Premier Leagues No Room for Racism (NRFR) Campaign. We saw 8 Partner Schools attend the event bringing together more than 40 participants from across our Premier League Inspires, Premier League Primary Stars and UEFA Goals programmes, where they took part in workshops exploring Black Heroes and Allyship.
 
Players present and past took part in a panel discussion and Q and A with Patson Daka, Ashleigh Plumptre, Chituru Odunze, Wes Morgan and Iffy Onuora, Head of Race and Equality from the Premier League all in attendance.
 
It was an insightful afternoon full of learning and listening. Participants also took time to create NFRR pledges to take back to their schools and action in the coming months.

Great Big Green week

We held a family litter pick during Great Big Green Week. 15 families attended and performed an excellent job both inside the school grounds and on the adjacent road and paths. The children then played football and basket ball whilst the waited for the hot dogs and cake which was a thank you for their excellent ECO work.

50th Anniversary of the school and Fun Day 2022

The Stokes Wood Pupils and their families raised over £1000 at their annual sponsored walk to help fund their Fun Day and Anniversary celebrations.
As you can see in the photos, the children and their families had a fantastic time. We were very pleased that Sarah Russell, Councillor, who is representing Liz Kendall MP, visited our special day briefly to cut our anniversary cake. The children all sang Happy Birthday to Stokes Wood during the picnic.
