British Science Week
The children enjoyed a science session carried out by a company called ‘Hands On Science’. Our real-life Scientist ‘James’ delivered a session to Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 all about adaptation and camouflage. The children had a presentation about a variety of animals from the sea, land, and sky, who could camouflage and adapt to their habitat. James talked about, explained, and demonstrated what adaption means and is and what camouflage means and is and gave video examples to show the children. The children then got to decorate a paper butterfly very simply using just simple shapes, patterns, and colours. They were then given a piece of paper, the children had to place their butterfly onto the paper and camouflage their butterfly by decorating the piece of paper around the butterfly using the same shapes, patterns and colours they used for their butterfly.

Hello Yellow Day
On Monday 10th October, St Winefride’s took part in Hello Yellow day to raise awareness about mental health. This year’s theme was about coming together and emphasising the importance of looking out for each other and getting everyone feeling helpful about the future.
