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.

World Mental Health Day 2022

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.

We held a day where the children accessorised their school uniform with yellow, and in class they took part in activities to encourage togetherness, boost wellbeing and increase awareness.

Reception class had a great time taking part in a scavenger hunt looking for items that were yellow. Afterwards they watched a PowerPoint on how it is important to speak to a trusted grownup if they every feel sad or worried about anything.
