On Wednesday 20th September, Reception had an exciting trip to Thinktank at Millennium Point, Birmingham.
The children learned all about their senses, listened to each other’s heartbeat and discovered all about the inside of their bodies in a fun, interactive session.
After investigating in the science garden, the children explored the amazing Kids’ City which included dressing up and role play.
Year 1 pupils visited Hanbury Hall in Droitwich and discovered what life was like in 1870 at this William and Mary-style country house for the Vernon family and their servants.
In this interactive lesson, the children met Sir Harry and Lady Georgina Vernon at the start of their day. They then went downstairs to learn what life was like as a servant with the help of the housekeeper and butler, from learning how to curtsy and bow, to laying a dinner table.
On Tuesday 19th September, Year 2 pupils took a step back in time when they visited one of the largest open air museums in the UK, the Black Country Living Museum, to support their Art topic, “If Buildings Could Speak”.
The children enjoyed visiting the many shops and homes at the museum, where they
learnt about life during the 1800’s and the early 20th Century from their charismatic Victorian guides. They took part in Victorian games and even went to school where they wrote on slates and had a go at reciting the alphabet backwards.
Ben (Year 8), Jasmine and Gracie (Year 6) are the first pupils to read Winterfold’s 2017 News Review which is hot off the press.
On Tuesday 19th September, Mrs Toms, Headmistress enjoyed a very special lunch with Winterfold’s new Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl.
Congratulations to Sophie, Kayla, Henry and Oliver.
Congratulations to Nissa, Eleanor and Sophie who have been selected for the Under 14 County Development Netball Squad.
Early in the Autumn term, a group of Winterfold Boys revisited the School after an absence of 30 years. Many of them had not seen each other for this period of time and it was with great excitement that they recounted their happy days at the School.
Everyone agreed that their time at Winterfold had given them many opportunities, friendships and lasting happy memories of a wonderful School.
Year 2 have been very busy exploring materials around the School grounds as an introduction to their Art topic, ‘Can buildings speak?’
Well done to Winterfold pupils Edward (Yr 4) and Isaac (Yr 2) who ran the Wild Mile, organised by Black Pear Joggers, Worcester’s friendly running club as a charity race.
The children’s race was the first event of the day and the boys were racing against older children. Edward and Isaac did very well, both managing a sprint finish to complete the one mile course in the top 10.
We wish our Year 8 Valete the best of luck in their first week at Senior School. Many of our students have been awarded academic, Art, Music and Sports Scholarships at the following schools:
Bromsgrove, Shrewsbury, The Priory, RGS, Malvern College, St George’s, Malvern St James and Dodderhill.
It was lovely to catch up with former Winterfold pupils Mia King and Isabelle Bolton today, who have both started studying at Bromsgrove School.
