Nativity Play

On the 4th of December 2023 key stage 1 in Wonersh and Shamley Green School performed a nativity play

Key stage 1 did the nativity show and the whole school was watching the Nativity show.

They did lots of songs and actions. There were lots of words and opinions and lovely singing.

They loved singing and doing the actions for the songs.  They all knew their lines and did not forget them. 

Mr Wiselka said “it was  absolutely amazing!"

Evacuee Day


On Wednesday the 29th of November all the year 6 students dressed up as WW2 evacuees. They did loads of activities such as drama, cooking and housekeeping plus we got to cook shortbread and carrot curry. It was yummy but the curry was spicy. We preferred the shortbread because it had sugar. We aslo did world war maths by making 2 days of rations for 6 people. And we did a dance about WW2 where we were named as different countries.

Football Matches


On Thursday 23rd November all classes in KS2 played football matches against Tillingbourne. In the yr 3 match they sadly lost 6-1. Raffey said the team played really well, especially himself. He played up a year; he said that his inspiration to play football is Mr Wiselka. 

Year 4 won 3-1 with goals from Charlie, Sophie and Jonny. According to Sophie, “the team played really well and were dominant with possession, WSG seemed much better”. 

Year 5 drew 1-1 but played really well with a last minute goal from Keiran. The defenders were so happy they jumped up and down. They played really well with Jacob and VIolet being great defenders.  

Amazingly and for the 1st time, WSG Year 6 beat Tillingbourne A team 2-1 with an amazing goal from Ben. Jasper Sharp (otherwise known as JLSpunch the amazing youtuber, subscribe) was voted man of the match by the other players for his game winning defending. He said, “the team played really well and were playing their best game from start to finish”. Year 6 were very resilient after going 1-0 down, they came back with 2 goals and some great defence from Jasper, Reuben, Ben and Freddie. Some great passing by the midfield, Tom & Reuben. Everyone was resilient at the back, the goalie and the defenders. And everyone was happy at the end of the match. Everyone had lots of fun.

We did very well and won a couple of races. We enjoyed lots and we lost by only a tiny bit.  Isaac in year 5 kept on saying “we can do it" and his encouragement made us faster.  Great swimming everyone!

CYE Nativity


All of the school watched Christian Youth Enterprise perform a nativity in the school hall.

The CYE staff put on play, it was so funny 

It was about the story of Christmas. It was about the nativity going wrong!  We learnt that it doesn’t matter if things go a bit wrong sometimes.

” It was hilarious”, said Flynn in Year 3.

On Wednesday 22nd November there was a dog talk. Reception, Year 1 and 2 were at the dog talk. They were learning about dogs and what you should do and what you don’t do to a dog. The children enjoyed stroking the dog and learnt about dog safety. They said they enjoyed it because the dog was being friendly and was sniffing them!

On the 7th of December, Year 2 learnt about the Great fire of London in the hall.  It was a fun play and Year 2 could help act it out.

They learnt all about how the fire started and how it spread.  They had lots of fun.

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!!!

February 2023


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.

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
  • Ambassadors
  • Fundraising Council
  • Resident artists
  • Food council
  • Playleaders
  • 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.

Eco Council

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.
