Pupils at Woodlands Academy spent a morning at the end of term off their usual timetable to explore the religion of Buddhism through specially designed lessons across the school.
Each subject had a specific Buddhism theme helping to develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of Buddhist traditions and values.
Representatives from Lord’s and Lady Taverners visited Woodlands Academy to hand over keys to a brand new mini bus.
The Lord’s Taverners Minibus programme has been operating for over forty years and since the programme began in 1976 over 1,200 minibuses have been donated to special educational schools and organisations throughout the UK.
Woodlands Academy have fundraised themselves to afford the £10,000 self-help contribution towards the new bus!
Following us reaching our fundraising target of £15,000, the installation of the pupils new Parkour Circuit is now complete.
The OFFICIAL OPENING with East Midlands Parkour Coaching, took place on Friday 22nd March.
East Midlands Parkour Coaching worked with the pupils across the school day to help them use their imagination and be as creative as they wish about the way in which they challenge themselves.

We will also be in the Skegness Standard, and on BBC Look North next week!
It has been a truly fabulous day for our pupils today!
Cadwell Park is set in the Lincolnshire Wolds and offers Bike and Car track days. Pupils from Woodlands Academy are fortunate enough to have this on their ‘doorstep’ and with the encouragement of the subject teacher; they use the site to practise motorsport photography.
Last week a group of pupils from Year 9 were taken to Cadwell Park for a photography session. The conditions were poor but this did not limit the experiences and knowledge that the pupils gained whilst there.

Woodlands pupil, Connor has been doing an extended work placement at First College Skegness for nearly a year now. He initially went on a week’s placement in Year 10, and showed great skill and was an exceptional student so the College asked if he would like to extend the placement.
Pupils, Billy Holstead and Trevor Sinclair took part in the bake-off style contest, with the briefing of, ‘cook a main meal from scratch!’
The allotted time was to cook the main meal from scratch in two hours, which was to include the housekeeping of the food areas, and serve it to the table, set for two diners.
