‘Decorate a Pumpkin’ Competition 2019

The winners of our annual ‘Decorate a Pumpkin’ competition are:

Pre-Prep – Florence N (Reception) with her ‘Greedy Caterpillar’ Pumpkin.

Prep – Rufus and Clemmie H (Years 7 and 5), with their ‘Puking Pumpkins’.

Rufus and Clemmie actually grew the pumpkins themselves. Their ingenious idea was to put a cup inside containing coca cola which, when vinegar was added, then spilled out of the mouth of the pumpkins.

Well done to everyone who took part, there are some fantastic entries this year.

Senior School Experience at Bromsgrove

A great time was had by our Years 5-8 pupils who enjoyed an afternoon of theatre, science, music, sport and a tasty supper at Bromsgrove School.

 

Year 6 Trip to Roman Villa

Last Friday, 11th October, Year 6 set off to explore Chedworth Roman Villa in the Cotswolds.

They discovered that Chedworth has some of the most impressive in-situ Roman mosaics in the country, as well as bath-house rooms and hypocaust systems. Our expert guides really brought the villa to life for them as they shared stories of the villa’s history and the more recent archaeological work. The museum had fascinating artefacts, which have been unearthed during on-site excavations, giving pupils an insight into the different religions which would have been worshipped there.

A particular highlight was being able to inspect and handle replica and primary source materials, including bone, pottery, tesserae, metal, shells and building materials – the pupils certainly seemed to relish the “wow” of holding something that was “really Roman”. Pupils also enjoyed participating in a Living History workshop, where they got dressed up as Roman slaves and had the opportunity to learn about Roman medicine as they ground up spices in a mortarium to make a medicine bag to take home. All in all we had a fantastic day out.

We were particularly delighted when Staff at the Villa commented on the impeccable behaviour of all of our pupils – very well done Year 6, you have done yourselves and us very proud!

Animal Masks

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.

Doodle Maths

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!
