Old Winterfoldian Olivia Wormald has been very busy over the last few months. She is currently in the production of ‘Our House’, the Madness musical at Greenwich Theatre until 4th May. Olivia performed her West End showcase at the Soho Theatre, and in a new Actor-Musician production of ‘Dead Dog in a Suitcase’ in Peckham. Musically, she has been playing with the London Musical Theatre Orchestra and depping on various musicals over London. Olivia says that Winterfold and Bromsgrove set her up with a great foundation for her drama school training and still remembers some of her lessons.

Year 6 spent a fascinating morning at Bromsgrove School visiting the SATIPS art exhibition and taking part in an art workshop by the award winning Mark Lippett. Mark’s atmospheric drawings and paintings depict quiet and unpopulated landscapes, both urban and natural. Working mostly in drawing and painting, Mark shared some valuable tips and techniques with our budding artists.
This term at Winterfold, the children have been busy raising money for Father Hudson’s Care. The effort made by our pupils during this time has been amazing, and Year 4 stood out as charitable ambassadors this time around, raising £221 between the two forms. Well done and a huge thank you to all children who contributed to our charity collection this year.
Our tour group has arrived in South Africa for the start of an incredible adventure. An online version of the tour brochure including tour itinerary can be found on our Ncemaneni News page. In addition to our Winterfold Twitter account, don’t forget we have @winterfoldtrips and Facebook @winterfoldhs. We look forward to seeing their amazing photographs.
Year 6 have been looking at the work of Australian sculptor Ron Mueck. The pupils have been inspired to create sculptures of themselves using only sticky tape. We think they are superb.
Despite the inclement weather, Year 1 have spent the morning studying the difference between a city and a village by visiting Worcester and Chaddesley Corbett. The children looked at how Worcester has changed over time, why there was a wall around the city and why the roads have names such as ‘The Shambles’. They also compared and contrasted the different buildings and the materials used to build them, in addition to counting the number of cars in each place. The children have continued their studies in the classroom and created their own depiction of what they have seen during the morning.
