Broseley Festival dance crew
It was a beautiful weekend for the Broseley Festival and the JW dance crew literally danced in the streets opening the festival on Sunday 18th June.  With three separate routines learned in a very short amount of time, our dance crew performed their socks off and were the only school to participate in the festival.  Well done to all the dancers for their amazing dance skills and for giving up their time to represent John Wilkinson - you were fantastic!

Primary partner sports day:
On Thursday 29th June, 44 John Wilkinson children from year 2 to year 6 took part with 7 other primary schools in the Primary partner sports day held at William Brookes.  Over 300 children participated in the event.
Even the driving rain could not dampen the enthusiasm of the children who performed fantastically in the conditions and supported their team mates brilliantly.  We came 2nd overall in the large schools competition losing out by only a few points to Much Wenlock school. 
Mrs Smith of William Brookes School has asked us to pass on this message:
"A huge thank you from  myself and WBS PE department to the staff, children and parents who remained so cheerful and upbeat despite the weather. Also for being so understanding about the new safeguarding rules imposed on us by OFSTED.  Congratulations to you all."
