Dear Parents, Carers and the community of Winlaton,

Welcome to Winlaton West Lane Community Primary School where we believe we have something very special and all staff, children, parents and Governors strive to REACH FOR THE STARS! I am very proud to be the Headteacher of a school with such awe-inspiring children, dedicated staff and supportive parents and carers.

Staff and Governors helped to create our vision statement for our wonderful school which is based on a happy, inclusive school which exudes an ethos of opportunity for all: children, staff, Governors, Parents and the wider community of Winlaton. It is an ethos that enables our children to take responsibility and become a brilliant workforce of the future.

Winlaton West Lane Community Primary endeavours to be a forward-thinking school with high expectations of teaching and learning, behaviour and team work. We aspire to be outstanding in all areas of school life.

At Winlaton West Lane, you will find a welcoming and vibrant environment, with all involved taking responsibility for themselves and other people. We work hard to achieve our best in everything we do and always REACH FOR THE STARS!

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.”

– Stephen Hawking

West Lane Remember Them…

In the week leading up to Remembrance, our whole school participated in a remembrance project – where pupils decorated Winlaton community with pebbles (carefully designed and decorated by the children themselves, with the names of soldiers from World War 1 and 2) for residents to find!

Year 4 freeze frame Rama and Sita!

This week, as part of their learning about Hinduism and the ‘Festival of Light’ Diwali, Year 4 took part in a fantastic dance workshop – facilitated by a very knowledgeable and motivational dance instructor Josh! Take a look at how much fun we all had with our dance moves!

Nursery blow some sparkling straw fireworks!

The children had fun this week, blow painting with powder paints – using straws. They explored colour and how colours can be changed…

Reception celebrate Diwali…

Reception have been learning all about Diwali this week. They have listened to the story of Rama and Sita. They have then explored Rangoli patterns. They ventured up to Forest School to collect their own natural resources and created their own Rangoli patterns on their carpets.

Year 5 explore Hinduism…

As part of our RE day this week, Year 5 children were welcomed into the classroom with the aromas of India! As we have been learning about Hindu festivals and how they are celebrated, we also cooked some Indian food, made Raksha Bandhan bracelets and Diwali lanterns. Wow! What an incredibly eventful day!

Reception explore the number 6…

This week, Reception have been focusing on the number six. We have explored making it on a ten frame. We have also used the ‘Part Part Model’ to find all of the different ways to make six. We’re getting so good at this!

Year 1 ‘structure’ a tree…

On Wednesday, Year 1 Chestnut went to Forest School to learn to identify parts of a tree. We made a large scale art piece that represented the leaves, trunk, branches and roots of a tree…

Year 1 investigate the power of ten!

Last week year 1 investigated 2-digit numbers. We used lolly sticks to make numbers up to 30. We grouped the tens together to show the tens and ones in a number. We then moved onto using base 10 equipment to make numbers up to 99. The children could identify the tens and ones in a number really well!
