A message from Emma Johns

The children and staff of Winsham C of E School returned refreshed after their Summer break and have settled down quickly into our school routines – it already feels as if we have never been away! The children are all looking smart in their uniforms and I have been pleased with their punctuality as well as their smiling faces each morning. Thank you for ensuring they arrive at school smart and ready to learn each day. Thank you all, also, for making me feel so very welcome and a part of the Winsham family community. The text which both classes looked at on their return explored the fact that there are those who feel invisible in our society and has supported the children in understanding that everyone has a place here. There has been some lovely writing arising from the children’s study of this text, which echoes two of our own school values - compassion and courage. Diversity will be a topic we regularly consider throughout the school year. On the sad passing of our Queen, we met together as a school community and reflected on her long service and commitment she gave to our country. We made and took flowers to the church and aim to work together towards a commemorative display in school. On another sad note, I have to share with you the news that Miss Dobinson has chosen to leave Winsham School at the end of the December term for pastures new. We will be sorry to see her go but wish her well for the exciting new journey she will begin. I can reassure parents that a suitable replacement will be found to carry on her hard work and I will update you as soon as we have any further information. At our school, we regularly discuss ‘big questions’. In KS1 this week the question ‘How did God make the sky?’ was asked and in KS2 ‘Was the world made in 6 days?’ was considered. Next week we will be reflecting on how sharing food can bring a community of any size together. I have organised a special treat for the children that links with this, as well as the KS1 learning about the village.  An ice cream van will be visiting...! Noodles have said that each child will be given a free ice cream. In response, the children will be thinking about how to pass this kindness on.
