A term in the life of the Windmill community…

This term has been, yet again, full of amazing learning opportunities for the members of the Windmill community.

We have been lucky enough to visit ‘the Henge’ not once, but twice, with members of our Year 5 and 6 classes taking part and learning about some of the archaeological discoveries made there – the children have thoroughly enjoyed stepping back over four thousand years.

Year 3 and 4 had the opportunity to develop their understanding of rainforests by visiting ‘The Living Rainforest’ and ‘Cotswold Wildlife Park’ in Oxfordshire – the first residential trip for most of our children.

Year 2 ventured out to Woburn Safari Park too and had a blast!

The bread and butter of our business is high quality teaching and learning and we offer this at every opportunity, every minute of every day.

Our children are so very fortunate to be taught by such amazing teachers and teaching assistants who are wholly committed to the development of each and every child; both socially and academically.

We’re proud to announce that Windmill has been awarded the Green Flag Award thanks to the hard work and dedication of Miss Davies and the Eco-Committee; this team has raised the profile of being eco-friendly and we were proud to welcome Mayor Richard Levell to join us for our flag-raising event.

Year 6 sat their SATs this term. We’re so proud of every single member of the Year 6 class, who approached the challenge with a positive, ‘can do’ attitude – they also enjoyed the ‘bacon butties’ treat to celebrate!

These are just a few of the great opportunities that the Windmill community has taken part in over the last term to help contextualise the learning that has been taking place in the classroom environment.

Well done to all of our phenomenal children!
