Fabulous Friday!

Another week, and indeed a half term, came to a close today.  Before school closed we were able to invite familes to Celebration Assembly to see their children receive Taj Mahal Awards and even one Aurora Award!  The children were proud to share these excellent achievements with their families.  

Very well done to all of these superstar learners - keep up the great work!

Winton Win Primary Stars Festival!

On Tuesday afternoon a combined team from year five and six attended the AFC Bournemouth’s ‘Premier League Primary Stars’ tournament. This year Winton Primary have worked closely with AFC Bournemouth as part of this new initiative. Children in the school have been given access to coaching, fun skills sessions as well as diet and nutrition education. Through this work we have gained free funding to make sure all of the three football teams have brand new kit!  Winton were given a special invite along with four other Bournemouth schools for the afternoon at Canford Arena.

Time Capsule discovery in Reception

Reception were very excited to have discovered a Time Capsule left by Queen Victoria in the grounds of Winton Primary. We gathered in Indoor Learning to find out what had been left inside.  Mrs Browne took each item out one by one and we talked about what it could be, what it was used for and whether we still have them now. There were a lot of items reception didn't recognise such as the ceramic hot water bottle, the old money and the music box. We talked about what we have instead nowadays instead of these items and why.  

Year 3 Explore Stone Age Dorset

Here is a picture of Kiera visiting Maiden Castle near Dorchester

Congratulations to all those children that visited any of the 10 identified sites across Dorset over the Easter break. From Hengistbury Head to Abbotsbury Castle children were given the opportunity to visit sites with Stone Age roots. At each location a QR code was left which gave the children a clue to help them solve a puzzle. We are very fortunate to live in a very beautiful part of the world and it was great that so many took the opportunity to explore the past of our local area.

5LM's Ready, Steady, Cook - the semi-final round

On 15th May 2017, the pupils of 5LM  prepared two 3 course meals. These meals were then served to members of school staff, who were individually invited, so that they could give the pupils feedback on their cooking, presentation and service. Judges included teachers such as Mrs Zdrajkowski, Mr Millar, Mrs Lord, Miss Cochrane and Mr Watts (a school governor). They all enjoyed the meals they were served and gave their feedback after the meal. This event was in preparation for a trip to Poole and Bournemouth college, where the children will cook for catering students.

Home Learning

Take a look at these amazing family trees that children in Reception produced for their home learning.  With the help of adults at home they created pictures or models to show their family tree - what imaginative and careful work they produced.  Miss Churchward was so impressed she sent them for a Headteacher Award.

Well done you three keep up the super work!

Busy bees in Reception

Where does the time go? We have been so busy since our half term holiday that I thought it was time to share some of the wonderful learning the children have been doing. 

Aurora Day!

Today Celebration Assemblies were very busy!  We were joined by lots of families to see their children receive Taj Mahal Awards for gaining 150 Wow points.  It was an extra special day as well though because we presented the first Aurora awards. One of the recipients had been waitinng three weeks to choose his Wow prize and all of the children and their families were very proud of this significant achievement.  Well done all of you - you have done Winton proud!

Cave painting in Year 3

Have you ever tried to paint using just a stick? It's harder than you think!

This week, Year 3 tried to recreate the techniques used by Stone Age people to create their wonderful cave paintings.

They learnt that people in the Stone Age had no written language and used their paintings to send messages, record and celebrate events (especially successful hunts) and just for fun!

Using only some sticks and earth-coloured paints, they had a go at creating their own cave paintings. They also investigated the different marks made by different sized sticks. 

How does your garden grow?

On Tuesday 25th April, in Year 2, we launched our new topic, "How does your garden grow"?

During the launch event there were different activities for the children to enjoy.

One activity was carrying out a plant survey. The children had to make tally charts of the plants that grow around the school. They then turned this information into a bar chart.
