Life Cycle

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.

Modern Languages

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 teachers. The introduction of a foreign language to children of a young age enables them to experience something of joy of another culture. We aim at making our lessons engaging, informative and fun. For example, this week, Year 3 have been learning vocabulary for pets with animal soft toys, cards and songs.

Forest School Fun

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.

Science at Winterfold

It has been great to get the children back into the lab and around our fabulous grounds for Science lessons. Pupils have toasted marshmallows with Bunsen burners, investigated sycamore seed dispersal, carried out photosynthesis investigations amongst many other topics.
Everyone has shown such curiosity and enthusiasm and they have made the most of the
facilities and outdoor learning areas to great effect.

Commemorative Cycle Ride

Congratulations to Mr Brinkley and a group of Bromsgrove School cyclists who rode 80+ miles from Llanwrtyd Wells to Bromsgrove last Sunday, 27th September 2020, to commemorate the opening of Bromsgrove Preparatory School and the evacuation of the School during 1939-1943. Mr Brinkley was one of four cyclists who not only cycled back from Wales, but decided to take on the challenge of cycling there beforehand too, a round trip of 180 miles! Well done to all.

 

Forest School Treasures

Kindergarten 2 had the best time searching for Forest School treasures. They told Mrs McNaughton what they would like to find and together they all made a checklist and went off hunting with a little treasure bag each.

Charitable Efforts

We are very proud of Abby W who has raised £110 for Kemp Hospice.
On a sunny September afternoon, the day before we started back at School, Abby set up her own home-grown cooking apple store outside her house. The family were blown away by the generosity of walkers and people driving past, and raised an astonishing £110 in just a couple of hours. They are keen KEMP supporters following a family member’s death a few years ago, and Abby’s creativity and drive to raise money for KEMP keeps his memory alive every day.
