A Moment in Time
Next week sees the long-awaited launch of the ‘A Moment in Time’ project. This is a photography exhibition, involving 24 schools and children's centres across Stevenage, and marks the end of a year of celebrations for the 70th year of Stevenage as a new town.
Your child will be bringing home an invitation for you to join us to visit the exhibition at the Stevenage Museum next week, along with a flyer and a programme giving further information. Please tell your family and friends about it! We look forward to you joining us for this learning event.
Thank you to Mrs Anderson who has led this important town wide project, collaborating with other local schools.

We enjoyed taking part in the 'Adopt an Underpass' project organised by the council to celebrate Stevenage New Town's 70th birthday as well as marking our school’s 40th anniversary. This collaborative art project has been a great way to appreciate each other’s contributions and unique skills. The project has been a great way to build relationships within our community. It has provided an opportunity to connect and enhance our community through art and inspire one another through creativity.
You will recall The School governors and staff wanted to leave a lasting legacy for the school through raising money for a special birthday present for the children. The children chose a Tree House / outdoor classroom which would be set within our beautiful school grounds. The tree house will be used to complement our outdoor education / Forest Schools programme.
At Woolenwick we continue to give high priority in developing our children’s understanding of the world in which they live. The children in the Year Two classes had been learning about space.
Their topic, ‘To infinity and Beyond’ triggered an unexpected invitation and we were ‘Over the moon!’
A group of Year Two children along with Steve Akers, Chair of Governors, Ben Reader, Assistant Headteacher, Tom Robinson, class teacher and myself enjoyed a ‘Meet and Greet’ learning opportunity with Buzz Aldrin.’
