Big Brummie Camp Out – Saturday 1st May 2021

The school will be supporting the charity, SIFA Fireside, this coming Bank Holiday weekend as we look to raise awareness of the issue of homelessness across the city of Birmingham. 

Spend the night (Saturday 1st May 2021) under the stars, camping out to support homeless and vulnerable people in Birmingham. This is a great opportunity for you as a family to camp outside in the garden, build a den in the living room to sleep in, have fun and raise awareness for the great work that SIFA Fireside provide. 

We have set ourselves a target of raising £200 for the charity. Online donations can be made at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/woodthorpejischool 

Please visit class blog sites to access the digital activity pack that could be used in the build-up to Saturday night. Don’t forget to tweet your photos using the hashtag #BigBrummieCampOut – Thank you, as always, for your wonderful support.

We have been kindly invited by KECH to take part in some weekly outdoor cricket sessions at the school that will be led by Warwickshire County Cricket Club. These will take place from 11:00am – 12:00pm every Wednesday this half term. (Weather permitting!!!) A decision will be made at 8:00am on the day of the proposed session to reconfirm depending on the current weather conditions. The children will be travelling to/from Camp Hill by foot with Ms Edwards and Mr Trevor. Children should wear their PE kit to school every Wednesday this half term.
