Welcome back to school

Jan 19,2020

January is now in full swing and lots of learning is taking place all over the school. Each stage has begun new topics to begin term 2. KS2 students are preparing for the January 30 Talent Show from 2-3 pm. We invite parents of the performers only due to space limitations. FS had a wonderful pajama themed day last Thursday with students reading and taking part in many activities indoor and outdoor.  We encourage parents to have their children to school by 8:00 am as the new lateness policy will now be in effect as of today Sunday, January 19, 2020. We also encourage parents to pick their children up promptly after school as there is no supervision after 3:20 pm. Windrose staff is involved in meetings and planning after this time.

Thank you for your support.

Welcome to December and month filled with holiday spirit! All year groups are busy practicing for the winter show in their classrooms. Very soon we will begin reviewing for exams in some year groups. Please remember to help children prepare by getting a good night’s rest, eat a balanced breakfast and don’t put too much pressure on them. Early preparation is key to success.  Please be sure kids are in full winter uniforms by now. We look forward to a wonderful week of learning!

Welcome to another busy week at Windrose Academy. We have KS2 Talent Show auditions taking place during breaks this week. It’s amazing to see the variety of talent that students have outside of their classrooms as well as inside. KS3 had a very competitive match against Noor Language School last week and defeated them with a score of 6-0.  The middle school science competition took 1st place at the Your Child Expo last weekend. The November Numeracy Challenge has been dominating math sessions and will end today on November 24th. We are very excited to see the improvements in math using Matheltics to support mental math.  Please remember to fill out and return health forms so we can assist your child in case of illness.  There are a lot of wonderful extra-curricular activities going on at school – look for more announcements soon.

November Numeracy Challenge

Nov 17,2019

We have a full week of learning ahead at Windrose Academy. The November Numeracy Challenge kicks off tomorrow with a strong focus on numeracy computation skills for all students registered on Mathletics. The November Numeracy Challenge will run from Monday 18th November until Sunday 24th November (1 week). We are challenging you to earn as many participation points as you can. The first placed school will be the school with the highest average total of participation points. This will be calculated by taking the total number of participation points divided by the total number of registered students in the school. Students are beginning learning their parts for their Winter Concert and show.

 

Deadline of December 1 for all health forms to be returned or filled out. Please remember that all students must be in their full winter uniform by December 1 which means Windrose jackets or solid black or dark gray jackets. Thanks for your support.

Welcome to a short, but busy week here at school. We have Coding Club starting for KS2 and KS3. The sign ups will be out this week for the World Scholar’s Cup Competition,  as well for KS2 and KS3. There are also talent show sign ups for KS2 and KS3 out as well. The KS1 talent show will be in the spring. Come and see the new playground painting which allows for some movement and balance practice for KS1 and FS2. The chalkboard wall is ready and kids have been doing some amazing artwork on it. Please remember the winter uniform policy, but it’s still warm in the afternoon so layers are the best. Healthy lunches are always the best to give students the extra energy to get through the school day focused and with their minds ready to learn! Have a wonderful week.

Welcome back

Nov 03,2019

Welcome back to school! The next 6 weeks will be busy as we head towards the midyear holidays. It’s an exciting time of year, but we will be working hard in all academic areas. This is the time where children can make a lot of progress in their studies as there are not many interruptions between now and the Winter Holidays. Please communicate with your child’s teacher regarding any questions or concerns as a first point of contact. As the weather cools and children wear layers, please be sure to label all your child’s belongings.
