The entries for this year’s pumpkin competition were outstanding! We had everything from The Peckish Pumpkin to a spaceship, Pumpkinstein, our School motto Laus Deo, a hedgehog, a Halloween rat, ‘Uni-Kin’ to Harry Potter, to name but a few. Nigel, our Site Supervisor had the difficult task of judging these superb entries. After careful consideration, congratulations go to: Florence N, KG2 for her Nemo, Emily C, Reception for Darth Vader and Teddy M, Year 4 for ‘Punk-kin’. Once again, thank you to everyone for going the extra mile and to the FOW for organising.
Month: October 2018
On Thursday 18th October, Head Girl Amy, Head Boy Alex, Deputy Head Girl Olivia and Deputy Head Boy Jakson enjoyed a VIP lunch with Mrs Toms to celebrate the achievement of being made Pupil Heads and Deputy Heads of School.
On Tuesday 16th October, our intrepid Year 1 historians started their trip to Tamworth Castle with a general tour of the grounds, looking at arrow slits and dungeons. In the afternoon, the children went to Knight School, where they had the opportunity to look at armour and weapons. It was a great trip, which brought medieval times and the children’s topic to life.
On 11th October, sixteen children took part in the annual Cross Country event organised by Abberley Hall School. Once again, Winterfold pupils showed guts and determination throughout the afternoon, with some excellent running and impressive sprints towards the finish line. Well done everyone.
Harvest Mass was both uplifting and poignant, as Deacon Sean shared the story of Simon with the children, his message being about the true generosity of God. Many thanks to our Prefects who helped arrange the food and transport it to the Basement Project with such enthusiasm.
Year 8 have completed their fantastic animal head sculptures. We have a selection of rhinos, lions, unicorns, zebras, foxes, giraffes and cows on display. Lots of hard work has paid off and Winterfold now has its very own safari park.
During the Summer holidays, Róisín H completed the Doodle Maths Challenge very successfully and was sent a Doodle badge, certificate, ruler, pencil case and pencil. A fantastic achievement – Bravo Róisín!
In English, Year 1 have been reading The Gingerbread Man and pupils have followed instructions to make their own gingerbread person. Hopefully there will be no runaways from our oven!
The Year 2 Funnybones English display has been pieced together and includes our 3D skeleton and dog. Following the children’s story-map creations, they are now planning their alternative openings to the next Funnybones adventure. Settings have included outer space, Ecuador, Old Trafford and the Sahara Desert.
Well done to our U10 girls who took part in RGS’ hockey tournament on Wednesday 3rd October. The team won one game, drew two games and lost one game, in a very exciting competition.
