At Winnall Primary School we develop happy and confident learners, by having high aspirations and ambitions for all our children and believe that each individual child should be given the best chance to succeed. We believe in creating an enjoyment and enthusiasm for learning, based on mutual respect and the celebration of success. Continuous improvement will be promoted through the growth of dynamic learners who keep asking questions and learn to solve problems. All pupils should leave Winnall having had the opportunity to learn and develop through a wide range of different experiences and contexts.
"Putting Children First"
Here at Winnall Primary School the children are shared into 4 houses: Bedivere (blue house), Gawain (red house), Lamorak (Green house) and Tristan (Yellow house). Each house has children from every class and siblings are put into the same house.
House afternoon to launch our school values
During week 1 of this term (September 2015) we enjoyed a particularly exciting 'House' activity afternoon. Children from Year 1 through to Year 6 joined together as house teams to understand each of our core values and understand how they impact us as individuals and our school. Our core values are: Belief (Bedivere), Nurture (Tristan), Perseverance (Gawain) and Respect (Lamorak).
The children engaged in a variety of activities resulting in superb art work, admirable spaghetti and marshmallow structures, thought provoking drama and quotes to portray belief. The children worked together beautifully and were a real credit to the school showing independence, resilience with the tasks as well as supporting younger members of their groups appropriately.
At the end of the afternoon, we shared our activities with everyone in the school hall.
Have a look at some of the photographs below that show a snapshot of the fun activities we took part in.
House Nerf Wars
At the end of the Spring Half Term, each house was given the opportunity to take part in upper and lower school house Nerf Wars as a reward for all of the house points that they had earned. Activity time was allocated in accordance with how many house points each house had earned, with the winning house receiving the most game time.
All houses had a fantastic time and it is something that we look forward to repeating again in the future.
Well done to Gawain the winning house.
