Reception Children Step Back in Time

Reception children stepped back in time on Wednesday 28th November during their visit to Hartlebury Castle. The children discovered first hand what life was really like in historic Worcestershire and really enjoyed the hands-on activity comparing and contrasting our homes today with homes in Victorian times. 

Young Thespians Learn About the Scottish Play

Year 7 & 8 were treated to an afternoon of Shakespeare with a performance and workshop based on Macbeth by the talented actors from the Young Shakespeare Company. All of the children were fully engaged, taking part as characters from the play. The whole afternoon was excellent and the children and staff enjoyed how the Scottish play was retold. The actors completed the workshop with a question and answer session about the acting profession.

Wyre Forest District Trials

On Friday 23rd November, our Cross Country runners competed in the KS3/4 Wyre Forest District Trials, with just under ten schools competing and runners covering increasingly longer distances. Congratulations to all our runners who ran superbly and particularly to Lewis T who came third and now has a place in the U12 District Team.

U8 Hockey Festival

On Tuesday 20th November, our Year 3 girls hosted a successful hockey festival with King’s Hawford and King’s St Albans.  It is wonderful to see them improving and developing as junior players, whilst having fun at the same time.

Mini Designers

Year 3 have finished making their wonderful wind chimes. They designed them very carefully, before constructing them with wood, threads, keys and acrylic paint.  Very well done to our mini designers.

Kindergarten 2 children make Diva lamps for Diwali

KG2 children have been learning about Diwali and have made Diva lamps out of clay to mark the occasion. Diwali marks the victory of light over darkness, right over wrong, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. For some, it celebrates the story of King Rama’s return from exile after he defeated Ravana and his evil army. As Rama returned to the city of Ayodhya, people lit the path home by lighting rows of clay lamps.

Remembering the Fallen

Father Lamb and Deacon Sean led a very moving Mass of Remembrance on Thursday November 8th to remember the fallen Old Winterfoldians and their fellow soldiers who lost their lives in various conflicts. The children performed beautifully and took part with reverence. At the eleventh hour, the whole School observed two minutes’ silence in the Courtyard.
