The Past is Back!!
BY RORY SELVEY, YEAR 6 Last Thursday everyone in the upper school dressed up as a character who Lived, Worked or even visited the Langton area. We saw all sorts of different costumes worn on the day, from Roman citizens to maids who would have worked here at the time of the Norcliffes. Mr Mills, the organizer of the event said: It was great to see the Pupils imagination, and to see the variety of costumes from different periods of time. Mr England and the rest of the staff also enjoyed the day.
Attention!, Mrs Murkett dresses as a soldier who was based here during World War 2. V for Victory! Zac Woolley dresses as Winston Churchill, who visited the building at the time of World War 2.

Open day and Summer Fete
BY ZAC WOOLLEY, YEAR 6 On Saturday the 19th July we had a lot of visitors come and look around school. One particular visitor whose name was David Moore was actually an old pupil of the school. There were three presentations from the historical society and they went especially well. The reason for the open day was for new people to have a look around but also for their parents to see the school and what it has to offer. It was a great hit and because of the advertising poster on the crossroads, lots of people turned up. The year seven’s café was an excellent set up and the guests at the open day all sat down and had a coffee or a croissant. All of the parents enjoyed their visit and the whole morning was very good. Mr Tolkien's excellent Prospectus was very popular and gave out lots of interesting information. Following on from the open day was the summer fete, with stalls all over the back lawn and the rose garden. The summer fete was just as successful as the open day and when Mr Mills put out some of his war gaming figures, they were all gone after about five minutes. The BB gun shooting stall was very popular with the older children in the school and the golf chipping stall was so nail biting that it actually went down to a draw between Mr Saunders and Jonty Megginson. In the end they called it quits and both took a prize home. Another extremely exciting but hilarious stall was the ball throwing stall, which Antonia Selvey and her friend Luke set up. Overall the whole day was packed with opportunity and excitement and was a brilliant way to have fun.

Friday 18th June
BY ZAC WOOLLEY & CAMERON CASTLETON, YEAR 6 & 8 Last Friday Woodleigh had sports day which is an annual event . Lots of parents turned up and, as it is every year the tug of war was very popular and funny. Even more hilarious was when the parents started doing tug of war, with people flying around left right and backwards. Mikey, year 8, says:”It was a very enjoyable event and I will be sad to leave it.” The events were very fair this year, with everyone being allowed to do an event they want to do, rather than what their house captains telling them to. There were people who just wanted a quick sprint of 80m to elites doing events like 1500m.Cameron Castleton, 1500m runner says, “the 1500 metres wasn't very successful since only three of us did it, and there should have been more of us.” The three that did it were: Beau Wyatt, Cameron Castleton and Frankie Cheung. North won the event overall but everyone performed very well from all the houses. BY BILLY GARRITTY, YEAR 6
