Building Resilience Workshop

Throughout this term we have been running a range of workshops for parents.  The sessions are designed to provide support for parents of school age children on a range of subjects.  Attendees are welcome to sign up for all workshops or just the ones that they feel are relevant, or of interest, to them.  This week the workshop took place on Wednesday and focussed on building and maintaining resilience within the family.

A rollercoaster of an assembly!

On Wednesday 17th October year 6 led our assembly.  If you are a regular visitor to our website you will know that they recently visited Paulton's Park as part of their topic on Forces.  They began by introducing the story of Felix Baumgartner who jumped out of a balloon flying 24 miles up in the air!  The school soon worked out why "I believe I can fly" was playing as they came into assembly!

Say Cheese!

On Tuesday this week it was school photograph day!  Every child in the school visited the photographer's studio to have their photo taken.  They will bring home a proof for you to see and decide if granny is getting a photo again this Christmas!  It was lovely to see the results produced so quickly.

Feel the Force!

Year 6 have been working on a topic called "Feel the Force" studying the Science of Forces.  As part of their topic they really needed to "feel" the forces they have been studying!  So not put off by the weather, they headed off this morning, for a fabulous day at Paultons Park.

Like to Dance?

In Reception the children have been developing their fine and gross motor skills in many ways.

Last week we started the Write Dance programme. Write Dance is a movement based method of training and developing children’s fine and gross co-ordination. This is all working towards the children having a comfortable, readable, quick and distinctive handwriting.

The Grand Old Duke of York

In Foundation Stage they started the week with a rotation of activities based around their Literacy work on the Nursery Rhyme, "The Grand Old Duke of York".  One group worked with the teacher to re-enact the Nursery Rhyme and film each section of the work they did.  This visual literacy approach to learning helped children to internalise the well known rhyme and to discuss what the various characters do and how they felt.

Dressed to Impress

On Tuesday this week we held our Book Day and children and staff came to school dressed as characters from their favourite book.  As you can imagine we had lots of different characters from a huge range of books.  Some classes held competitions for the best dressed, some did special book related activities for the day and others shared their favourite stories.  It was lovely to see, during the afternoon, many of the older children went to read with the younger ones.  The children loved sharing their books with an older child and the Key Stage 2 children made great teachers!  Take a look at

Community Harvest

Wednesday 3rd October saw our Harvest Festival.  For the first time this year this was a joint festival with Victoria Park Methodist Church.  Children brought gifts of food to school and carried them to Church, to add to those gifts brought by members of the congregation.

Book Week

This week is book week!  We have a range of different and exciting activities planned relating to books.  Tuesday is our dressing up day where staff and children will be coming to school dressed as characters from a book.  Check back later in the week to see some pictures and information about what we have been up to!

Parent Questionnaire

At Winton we are committed to making our school the very best it can be. We have worked hard to make improvements and we know there is more that we need to do over the coming months to make our school truly outstanding and the very best it can be. With this in mind we want the views of our parents to be heard and to know what you think is great about the school and what we need to improve. If you take the time to fill out the questionnaire we will do what we can to prioritise what is important to our parents when deciding on our school improvement agenda.
