Leaves of Southwell – Art Project

Students from Woodlands have been involved with Southwell Minister’s art project – ‘Leaves of Southwell’. Our amazing artworks are now featured in the online gallery as a part of Oakfield School’s virtual Minister tour.

We created our own paints using a range of natural materials to create the paintings. The paintings are inspired by the 13th century carvings in Southwell Minister.

Bring on the Sun and the Sun Cream!

The summer is on its way and we are all looking forward to spending lots of time outside for playtimes and also lessons! However, on really hot days we can’t offer the protection of shade to every pupil so it is incredibly important that pupils bring their own sun cream and hats in to school every day.


We also ask that all pupils wear sun cream to school which is applied before they arrive in the morning as this offers protection during the school day.


We are going to encourage the pupils to reapply a small amount of lotion to key areas before lunchtime.

Please see the attached letter –
