In today's assembly, we looked at the importance of sleep and what happens if you don't get enough sleep.
We're launching a competition- if children can fill in the form attached for their sleep patterns next week, they'll get a prize! We'll be encouraging them daily with how to maintain good sleeping habits.

At West Wycombe we have wonderful junior photographers who know how important a picture can be. A picture says a thousand words and, in this case, it tells us a thousand words about nature in our local area.
Two members of our Newspaper Club, Jaya and Izzy, set up their own photography competition. All of the teachers were impressed with their maturity when they collected the entries, chose the winners and presented the winners to the whole school using their own PowerPoint.
Jaya from Year 6: I liked to see everyone’s pictures and how I liked the effort they put in
Izzy from Year 5: I enjoyed that people showed respect for nature
Our school works hard to provide all children with a chance to show off their wonderful talents and photography offers a range of exciting and valuable learning experiences. May this be the first of many photography competitions.
The three big winners:
3rd place: Oscar
2nd place: Seb
1st place: Freya
Well done everyone!
