At Wynndale we are always trying our best to behave sensibly and do our best in our work. All year groups are kind, respectful and want to achieve their very best. The teachers are highly trained to help the children here so that they can do amazing work. Children that have left our fantastic school have gone on to get great marks in their tests which will affect their futures. We hope that children joining our Foundation Stage now will do as well as those in the past.
In Foundation stage, the children learn the basic skills of life, for example learning to read their first words and writing their names for the very first time. The children in KS1 have topics that are simple to understand but can be covered in great depth. Children in KS1 learn to read bigger books and to write in sentences.
In Years 3 and 4 the children learn harder subjects and read books with chapters in, they also learn trumpet in Year 3 and cornet in Year 4. They go on trips and a residential visit at a youth hostel in Hartington which is very exciting.
The last few years in school are vital because the children learn incredibly fun things which can sometimes be a little bit trickier. They also do a summer performance which has lots of lines but is very entertaining for the pupils here. The music teacher teaches us to play ukulele which is very fun and educational.
We also have lots of different jobs that each class is responsible to do every day, week, month or even term. These include running our electronic library. The library is located at the back of the ICT suite and the librarians do everything from issuing books, to tidying up, putting new books on the system and returning books to the proper places on the shelves that children have brought back for others to read and enjoy as they did.
We also ensure that the school is green by recycling, composting and learning how to save our planet. Children in year 6 do the paper recycling every day. They collect the recycling bins from each class and empty them into our site manager’s big bin which will then be recycled. Two children also take the tea bags from the staff room and fruit waste to the compost bins in our allotment.
Another important part of school life is the Eco Committee. In each class children make speeches and 2 to 4 children are elected. They will go on special trips to explore nature and learn about the world.
One thing we all respect as a school is pupil voice time, its every Friday after our special assembly. We talk about things happening in school, and around the world and find ways to help or improve things. Year six children lead a session for the youngest children in school. One of the things we have introduced is a healthy tuck shop.
Overall our school is amazing. We learn new things every day. I think if it wasn’t for this amazing school we wouldn’t be where we are now with our learning.
