Children In Need 2019
Thank you for all the loose change that was bought in to fill our Pudsey Bear on Friday 15th November. We raised a fantastic £121.68. We hope the children enjoyed wearing their Pudsey accessories to school on that day.
Harvest Assembly - 18th October 2019
We were pleased to see so many parents and carers join us for our fun Harvest assembly. We would like to thank everyone for the fantastic donations for Winchester Basics Bank. They really will go to people in need.
Mrs Gunning hosted a Macmillan coffee afternoon on Wednesday 25th September.
We would like to thank you for all your fantastic cake donations and for your support at the event. We raised £231.05 which is amazing and will fund a Macmillan nurse for a day!!
We are absolutely delighted to announce that Winnall Primary School has been selected for the Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme. Each time you shop at Tesco Winnall (and we hope that you will do this a lot!) you will receive a blue token at the till. This then gets put into the project of your choice as you leave the shop. This will run until the 30th April 2019. We are fundraising to redevelop our school library.
At Winnall we are extremely lucky to have a well stocked library, run by David Smith, our volunteer librarian. We would love to update the furniture, extend our book choices and be able to open up the library after school a couple of days a week, so that you can enjoy books with your children before going home.
This is part of some much bigger work we have been doing on reading this year. Each class has been taking part in the “Book a Month” scheme, where children are encouraged to read books by authors they may not have come across yet. It’s been wonderful to see more children reading in school and we hope that they keep this up!
Comic Relief (Friday 15th March 2019)
Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and raise money at home, school and work. There’s a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and internationally.
What are we doing at school?
To support Comic Relief, Winnall Primary School asked the children to donate any small change and pupils were allowed to wear items of red, red accessories and/or a red nose and tell a joke to their class. We are delighted to announce that we raised a fabulous £138.39 for Comic Relief 2019
