Staff and Governors helped to create our vision statement for our wonderful school which is based on a happy, inclusive school which exudes an ethos of opportunity for all -children, staff, Governors, Parents and the wider community of Winlaton. One that enables our children to take responsibility and be the workforce of the future.

Reception ‘outshine’ their shadows!

Reception took advantage of the sunny weather recently to explore their own shadows – having fun making their shadows do silly dances. The children also came up with some very interesting scientific explanations about shadows…

Reception eggs-plore some egg-cellent egg designing!

This week, Reception held their very own Easter Egg competition where they had great fun designing their own eggs – incorporating different patterns onto their eggs and creating some unique and interesting individual designs.

 

Reception become experts at shapes!

This week in Maths, Reception have been exploring 2-D and 3-D shapes. We have been focusing on describing these shapes according to their properties – using mathematical vocabulary such as ‘faces’ and ‘sides’.

Father Tom leaves us…

We have been very fortunate to have had such a close relationship with our local church, so this week’s assembly was a particularly sad occasion for our school – as it was Father’s Tom leaving assembly.

Year 1 become master shape sorters!

Year 1 have become master shape identifiers! We have been using our knowledge of 3-D shapes to sort them into different groups – sorting the shapes by size, colour and properties. We decided the best way to sort the 3-D shapes was to sort them into round and straight edges – finding shapes which had both round and straight edges in our hoop venn diagrams.
