We are again taking part in #SocialAdvent, a set of Christmas challenges on social media, run by the company, Interactive Schools. The first task was to invent a festive hashtag and use it throughout December – search #WinterfoldAtChristmas on Twitter and Instagram to see what we have been posting so far.
Please note that this Wednesday, 2nd December will see a change of menu for Prep and Pre-Prep pupils – we will be serving a sumptuous Chinese lunch on this day.
Excitement is in the air this week as we begin to film our nativity scenes in year group bubbles. We have been blessed with good weather outside and we cannot wait to show you the finished results – keep checking our YouTube and social media channels for more information.

On Thursday, Year 1 released the butterflies into the great outdoors. They have been enthralled by their journey and were both happy and sad to see them fly away to compete the life cycle. It was truly a fascinating couple of weeks and one we hope to repeat in future years.
Year 1 have finished their fantastic animal watercolour pictures in Art Club. Fantastic work everyone!
At Winterfold, we recognise that learning a foreign language is an important skill which, beyond being useful on holidays abroad, is becoming essential in the work place. All Winterfold students from Year 3 to 8 are lucky enough to be taught two foreign languages – French and Spanish – by experienced and dedicated specialist […]
Year 1 enjoyed their afternoon in Forest School. They learnt how to tie a timber hitch knot on a log and then pretended to take their ‘log dog’ for a walk around the grounds.
