Architectural Sculptures


Year 7’s Architectural sculptures have been displayed after pupils have made their refining touches. They have been decorated in aboriginal symbols to echo the theme of nature that the designs were based upon. Great work Year 7.

All aboard the Santa Express

On Tuesday 11th December, Year 1 journeyed to Conkers to experience the Robin’s Winter Warmer and travel on the Santa Express.

After spending time on the play area, the children were treated to an interactive 4D cinema Christmas Experience, complete with snow.

The children had a great time on the Santa Express and listened to a story about how Robin Red Breast was given his red breast by Santa to keep him warm.  They also learned about animals that hibernate.

After a bit of Elf dancing, they had an exciting time reading out their letters to Santa.


Friends of Winterfold Christmas Market

The Friends of Winterfold Christmas Market on Friday 7th December was another resounding success. Thank you to everyone who took part and made the afternoon such an enjoyable event.


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

On Friday 7th December, the Chamber Choir treated parents at Coffee Morning to a selection of beautifully sung carols.

Hark the Herald, Ding Dong Merrily On High, I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas, topped off with We Wish You a Merry Christmas left everyone feeling very ‘Christmassy’.

Mrs Toms said “I wish we could start every morning off this way”.


Early Years’ Christmas Production

On Wednesday 5th December, Early Years children listened to the Nativity story, being told by a Mum to her four children. Our talented children captured the hearts of the audience as they acted out the story.  Congratulations to all of the children and particularly to Olivia G from Year 8, who played the amazing role of Mum and it conveyed the real meaning of Christmas.

One of the new parents who watched the production said “It was a joy to see! A lot of hard work had obviously gone into preparing for the production. Through singing and drama, the children got the chance to learn the Christmas story for themselves”.

Year 4 and the mummies….

On 2nd December, Year 4 spent an enjoyable day visiting the Birmingham Art Gallery and Museum to support their study of Ancient Egypt.

In the morning, they took part in a hands-on mummification workshop, with the pupils taking on the roles of a variety of gods. The afternoon was spent touring the museum and art galleries independently.

The children were fascinated by the mummies in the Egyptian gallery and in particular, loved seeing the mummified cat and snake.  Additional highlights were the Greek and Roman galleries and learning about how the Staffordshire Hoard was discovered.

A fun and informative day was had by all.

‘The Inn-Spectors’

It was census time in Bethlehem and the inn-spectors were sent to check that all the accommodation was up to scratch. They were horrified to discover that at one of the inns, some of the visitors had been put in the stable and a baby had been born amongst the animals.

However, as Mary, Joseph and the donkey told their story and the special visitors explained the good news, the inn-spectors realised that this was no ordinary baby and they declared that the stable was fit for a king.

Well done to all of KS1 for their excellent Christmas production.  Click link below for highlights:


Odd Socks to Raise Awareness Around Anti-Bullying

In addition to our ‘Home Clothes Day (we have received some wonderful tombola gifts, thank you), the children have been encouraged to wear odd socks for the day. This is to raise awareness around anti-bullying in conjunction with Anti-Bullying Week, held annually.  Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun and is an opportunity for children to express themselves and celebrate their individuality. It has been a delight to see so many colourful and unusual socks.


Performance Platform

Over thirty children from Year 3 to Year 8 were given the opportunity to play in front of an audience at the Performance Platform on Thursday 29th November. There was a wide selection of instruments and the music was of a high standard.  We had everything from the Year 3 flutes, a number of soloists, to the newly formed boys’ rock choir, ‘Boys R Us’.  Well done to everyone involved.

We are looking forward to next term’s music competition which will be a great event.  As the festive season approaches, there are lots more music events to look forward to.
