A message from Emma Johns
The children and staff of Winsham School have battled against the usual seasonal bugs to
not only carry on with lots of exciting learning but also to put together many wonderful
Christmas events. The songs around the Christmas tree in the village were beautiful and the
two performances of the Christmas play were simply stunning – the children all worked so
very hard to learn the songs and the script and I was extremely proud of them all. We still
have the PTA craft fair to look forward to as well as our Christingle service in church and our
trip to the pantomime which we are very excitedly waiting for…oh, yes we are…!
KS2 had the recent excitement of a Trust wide public speaking event which followed a
debate in class. All the children in Herons contributed to the final presentation, with Louisa,
Adam and Kailin travelling to Castle Primary School, where they spoke beautifully and
clearly – as well as bravely, in front of all those people!
FS/KS1 have enjoyed their Christmas themed learning in both Maths and English as well as
engaging in some creative spiral making art activities, and learning about habitats and food
chains in Science
The school was proud to be able to support the Craft Fair that was held to raise money for
First Responders and we are grateful to all those who contributed or attended this event.
A forthcoming event for your diaries is December 14 th at 2.45. We would like to invite you all
to come into school at 2 pm to support the children in making Christingles. We will then go
over to the church for a Christingle service at 2.45 – to which you are all invited.
Snow is potentially forecast for next week. If there are any issues regarding the weather, we
will let you know on dojo and parentmail.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making me so welcome at Winsham.
I wish you all a peaceful and happy Christmas and look forward to seeing you all again in the
Head of School
