Out and about in Woodstock:
As a charity part of our commitment to Woodstock is to build strong links within the community. The benefits to children, the team and the community are far reaching and we find it adds a real depth to the children’s learning and our overall curriculum.
Below are just some of our recent and regular trips out such as the Library, Museum, Churches, Fire Station. We hope this gives you a further insight into what we do here at WUFA, more photos can be found in our front hall.
We like to invite visitors to our setting and to date these have been local Story Tellers, Fire fighters, the Mayor, Town Councillors, Woodstock’s Curate, Health Visitor and teachers of local settings especially around transition times. We also welcome Lucy from Relax Kids who comes every other week to run sessions with a small group of children. These sessions focus on enabling children to relax, think and learn new coping strategies. Monkey Music with Hayley is another big hit with the children. Hayley comes weekly on a Friday and all the children join in to this interactive session. Once a month we take all the Pre-School children down to Woodstock Residential Care Home and we sing to the residents. The results have been amazing not only for the residents but for the children. Watching them all interact is really quite moving and something we are looking to extend on once it is safe to do so.
We would like to personally thank all of our local friends, business owners and colleagues for your continued support. A big thank you to Blenheim Palace who open their doors to us for Team Building days, Staff and Committee meetings all of which we really appreciate.
