WSG House Bake Off!
We started off by everyone making their very own cupcake with their own design. They were tasted and judged by Mr Wiselka, Miss Bolton and Miss Chafey. It was a very tough decision (tough work out after). Unfortunately, not everyone could make it to the final and the people who needed to leave, went out of the competition. Four teams were in the final: Hazel, Beech, Oak and Willow!
Hazel: Chloe T, Esther, Amy U
Beech: Ben R, Amelia W, Martha
Oak: Tyler, Sophie, Florence
Willow: Wilfred, Noah A, Joseph.
Only one team could win. In joint third and fourth was Hazel and Willow, which now left us with the last two. In second place was…. Beech which means Oak takes the win for the house bake off!!!

A group of year 2 children had an ECO day in January. When Year 2 arrived on the 26th January at the Cathedral in Guildford, first they wanted to find out which human device made the most carbon dioxide (Co2). Then they put plasters on the countries that need our ideas because we have been recycling for a long time. After that they drew animals and underneath they wrote “please” as they need our help. Then they made a bag out of newspaper. And last but not least, they picked a dead butterfly and took it home where they can bury it so it will help a tree to grow.

Year 5 at the O2
On the 24th of January Year 5 went to the O2 with Mr Godwin, Mrs Fuller and Mrs White. Mr Godwin thought it was the best day ever and the children loved it! We were singing songs as a choir with children from other schools.
Everyone in Year 5 enjoyed singing at the O2 and I hope the parents enjoyed it as much as the children did.
Did you know?
The O2 is the biggest stadium in the country and was opened on the 24th of June 2007.

Year 6 Trip to Henley fort
On Wednesday 19th October year 6 went to Henley Fort. Our teachers split us into groups; one group did the Homeguard training and the other group did ARS Warden training.
The HomeGuard used guns (they did not have real bullets in them) and did lots of shouting.
In the ARP training we went into different shelters and experienced gas attacks.
We learnt lots and it was an amazing trip.
Year 4 at Sayers Croft
We played some games about the water cycle, mapping and also compass trailing.Then we went into the forest and went into the river called Coneyhurst Gill and we also put clay on our face.We also studied its speed and depth of the meanders and found out that the meander is deeper and faster on the outer bend. We sketched the meander and found animals in the river. Then we had lunch. After that we went to the adventure playground and had lots of fun and went home.

Pupil Parliament at WSG
There are 11 different Parliament roles:
- Reading Council
- Eco council
- Wellbeing Council
- Fundraising Council
- Resident artists
- Food council
- Sports council
And the Newspaper Council.
All of these roles have a special purpose. For example: Play leaders make children enjoy playtime. This is all new so it's interesting and exciting. Don’t worry though, only key stage 2 has got a role. Each council has a teacher, for example, the Sports council has Mr Wiselka. We have all had a meeting with our council, so we know who is in our group.

The eco council are focusing on switching off lights because of rising energy bills that the school has. Currently we are focusing on lowering food waste and increasing the recycling because of rising temperatures. We are hearing from other children in different classes to see what they want to change in the environment.
