FAMILY FUN DAY
Wow! What a turn out for this event. The children thoroughly enjoyed their sponsored walk, collecting stickers and getting their trophies.
Thank you to you all for your generous donations. We are so pleased to announce that we raised a total of:
A STUPENDOUS SUMMER FAYRE!
We would like to thank everyone that came along to our Summer Fayre last week. There was once again an amazing turnout which just shows us what an wonderfully supportive community we have here at Wood Field. The Senior Leadership Team (SLT) would like to thank all teachers and Year 3 pupils that manned some of the stalls during the day, and lastly, as a whole staff we would particularly like to thank our wonderful PSA who once again outdid themselves by not only organising an outstanding event, but also running the large majority of the stalls and sourcing some of the very best raffle prizes we have seen at a school fayre!
We have just received an email from Margaret Bent, Chair of the PSA detailing the final figure for the profit for the Summer Fayre - £6707

Carshalton, Beddington & Wallington Primary Schools' Sports Association District Sports Athletics - 14th June
Last Wednesday, a team of 42 Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children competed at the District Sports Athletics competition at the David Weir Sports Centre. This competition was against lots of different schools from our half of the borough in sprinting and relay events. The sprints (over 100m, with a 200m distance for Year 6!) and the relays (all the way round the 400m track in teams of 4) counted towards the schools' points, while there were also throwing and jumping events to try if the children wanted to. We particularly enjoyed the long jump! The children were well behaved and supportive of each other all afternoon, despite the heat! Lots of children managed to place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their sprint heat whilst the Year 6 boys relay did particularly well. Ewan, Jake, Cam, Jayden and Keiran managed to win the overall final for the Year 6 boys and were awarded with a large shield! They were a particularly strong team and a special mention must go to Ewan who allowed Keiran to run in the final event, in order to share the award with him too. Well done boys and well done also to all of the rest of the children who competed.

Sutton Schools Netball Rally at Overton Grange School
Last Saturday (29th April), a team of mainly Year 5s and 6s went to Overton Grange to participate in the annual netball tournament. This is the last netball event of the year and lots of schools are always there to play! It was an early start to the day, with our first match v Cheam Common at 9:15am! The girls were unlucky to only draw this 1-1 but played some fantastic netball with lots of passing and shooting. We then played two more games against All Saints Carshalton and Abbey Primary - both of these were quite tough! However, the girls didn't give up and played really well throughout. The last game against Regina Coeli was another quite close game. The girls played really well as a team once more and had a few shooting attempts! We lost 2-0 but this is a great achievement as Regina Coeli came second in the whole tournament. Well done, girls!
Thank you also to Mrs McDowall and Miss Beckford for coming to support us during our games.
The team: Maria, Ellen, Charlotte G, Amelia, Charlotte L, Eve, Neve, Claudee and Karis.
Well done to the netball team for representing Bandon Hill fantastically throughout the year and we hope that the Year 6s continue to play netball next year at secondary school!
