This Week


Music Making

During ‘Raising Aspirations’ week the Year 6 students from Brookwood Primary School visited the Music Department to enjoy an afternoon learning how to use the iMacs and Logic ProX. They worked with Mr Allen and Year 10 student Adam Guest (who was fantastic), and were tasked with creating music to accompany a film clip. The students had a brilliant time!

 

Parent 'Drop-in' Sessions

The Winston Churchill School is pleased to offer a drop in session, every Tuesday morning from 8.30am - 10.00am, in our Barista Coffee Lounge, for all parents/carers.  This is a relaxed atmosphere in which to discuss the challenges of parenting and to identify where support may be available.  If you have any questions you would like answered or have anything to discuss, with regards to your son/daughter please come along. 
Refreshments will be provided by our students training to gain their barista qualifications and there will be two members of staff on hand to answer your questions and/or signpost you to the appropriate resources available. 


Time to Celebrate!

I was invited to present certificates to an amazing group of students who had achieved success in the Toe by Toe reading scheme and in the Wordshark programme.  Each student had demonstrated determination and resilience to complete the programmes, giving up their time to invest in their own success.
Well done to everyone involved!


Year 7 Activities

Seventy students, from Year 7, took the opportunity to experience a range of activities at Bentley Copse Activity Centre over two days. Students split themselves into 6 groups and spent 40 minutes at each activity on a rotational basis. The outdoor activities included an assault course, crate stacking, archery, pedal carts, climbing, rifle shooting, Jacob’s ladder and zip lining. Everyone got stuck in and attempted everything with some tackling their fear of heights. In the summer sun students were also able to display their ever improving teamwork and collaboration skills with effective outcomes. Overall, a great learning experience doing what students do best….having fun! Thanks to the Bentley Copse Leaders, Winston Staff and students.
