Business As Usual – wef from 20th March 2020
Our fantastic children are still attending school everyday during the school closure (even during the Easter Holidays) because their parents are Key Workers. We have tried to make their time with us as fun and special as possible and we will keep you posted with some of the wonderful things they are doing.
The children celebrated St Georges Day and researched their Family Coat of Arms, they showed us some natural flair in their design and colour choices with some expert advice from Miss Baillee. Mr Coats also made the most of the sunny weather and took the children on an adventure. They didn’t have to go too far though and with their team building skills were able to make their own den in the wooded area which proved to be a lot of fun apart from the nettles.
With the help of Mrs Seigne, Miss Kemp and Miss Stennett the children designed and made their own hand puppets. They then put together a production and presented it to the staff working in school on that day.
The children worked with Mrs Leiner-Parry and Mrs Holt and planted some seeds as an experiment and the good news is they are flourishing! Thank you to everyone who keeps watering them.
Miss Pickup and Mrs Instone had a busy few days. The first project of the day was – How to make a radio? The children used a STEM Engineering Kit and they had to figure out which compartments went where to enable the radio to work. After much trial and error the radio was tested and well done to everyone involved because we had sound. Just to prove our success, we had a mini disco and a little sing song which was so much fun.
We then went on to make, decorate and or course eat some gorgeous cookies and we didn’t burn a thing.
and finally ……. well what can we say other than there were no accidents. In view of there being no Wimbledon this year, we decided to have a game or two of tennis just in case we have any budding players for the future and Mrs Instone took every precaution in case of a stray tennis ball.
Miss pickup finished the daily proceedings with a Cycling Proficiency test and as you will see she lead the pack all the way.
Grace and Alexis have also been busy making the children some wonderful lunches and the staff have also been able to enjoy her masterpieces.
World Book Day Thursday 5th March 2020
Christmas Dinner 2019.
We are Christmas Dinner ready here and are looking forward to having a fabulous lunch with all the children. Happy Christmas everyone !
Chester Zoo – December 2019
The children in Year 1 to Year 6 had a wonderful experience just before the Christmas holidays. We have been working with Chester Zoo and got involved with the Wildlife Connections Project. The children have been learning about wildlife and conservation and our help will make a big difference in creating safe spaces for our precious wildlife. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to the team who have been very informative and we thoroughly enjoyed working with the zoo rangers during the visit. We have also been given some tickets for our families so that you can experience an amazing family day out at Chester Zoo in 2020. Here are a few of our memories.
Christmas Workshop Fun 2019!
We have had so much fun and have got very glittery and sparkly in school during our Christmas workshops. We would like to thank everybody for coming along and joining in our festive fun. Here are a few pictures from our wonderful workshops. May we take this opportunity to wish you a very ‘Merry Christmas’ from everybody at St Wilfrid’s.
Remembrance Day Memorial Service Monday 11th November 2019
Four of our Student Council (Poppy, Logan, Finley and Jack) accompanied Mrs Instone to the Remembrance Day Service today representing St Wilfrid’s C.E.Primary School to pay our respects.
We have had a lovely day in school today. After the Easter service yesterday we had our annual Easter egg or decorate a bonnet competition. There were some amazing entries this year and it was very difficult to choose only a few winners. Mr Chapman our Chair of Governors’ had the difficult task of making the final decision.
The winners were: Nursery = Grace, Reception = Poppy, Year 1 = Daisy, Year 2 = Harrison, Year 3 = Owen, Year 4 = Joe, Year 5 = Lacey, Year 6 = Anthony
Here are some other fantastic efforts:
We also had a very special visit from the Easter rabbit who took all our children on an Easter egg hunt which was great fun and each child found some special chocolate treats.
The raffle was also drawn and there were over 40 children who won the Easter eggs donated by staff and friends of St Wilfrid’s. A grand total of £227.60 was raised for school funds by you all so a big thank you for all your contributions.
Year 3 had a very snowy experience last week (Wednesday 28 February 2018) when we took part in an echo friendly initiative to plant new trees in green spaces. It was a wonderful afternoon and it was very cold however, we were wrapped up well and had a great time and a lot of fun.
Royal Wedding Afternoon Tea School Lunch – Friday 18 May 2018
The children thoroughly enjoyed their special school lunch today and we even had a sunny day which enabled us to have the picnic tables outside. We all had an afternoon tea prepared by the lovely kitchen ladies and enjoyed waving our union jack flags.
KS1 and KS2 Sports Day
The children had a great afternoon of sport and competition and we were also graced with fabulous weather (for a change). Thank you to all our parents and carers who came along and joined in.
Our Summer Fair on the 5 July
What a fantastic turnout from our families and friends to our Summer Fair. The weather was amazing and we collected over £800 from all the stalls and raffles. Well done and thank you to everyone who donated items, came along and especially to all who won prizes.
Year 6 Leavers Service at All Saints Church
We had a lovely service performed by Father Wickens on Monday. The whole school went along to support our Year 6 children who will soon be leaving us. It was very emotional for us all and Year 6 each shared some of their favourite memories of their time here at St Wilfrid’s. A big thank you to all our families who attended and joined us back at school afterwards for tea and biscuits.
