Sports Day

Apr 30,2018

What a fantastic day the children had in (FS) on the 3rd, (Year 1-3) the 4th & (Year 4-9) the 5th of April for their annual Sports Day. How lucky we were with the weather too!

The Lower and Upper School children were able to compete with great skill and determination in field events ranging from fun games to races and friendly competitions among our lovely parents, not to mention the most famous dances by our Dance & Movement teacher Mr. Mina. All the children tried their hardest and there were some outstanding performances from all age groups. It was lovely to see the children being competitive and determined but also showing great encouragement and sportsmanship towards each other throughout the day.

Thank you to the P.E. department and all of our staff who participated in this great big even. Also, thank you so much to our lovely parents for their great participation at the event. It was fantastic to see so many parents supporting their children in all the different activities. Last but not least, congratulations to all our children in all House Teams for participating in what I hope was a very enjoyable day.

KS2&3 Science Fair!

Mar 20,2018

The Windrose Academy Science Fair was held last Thursday, 15th of March. Students from key stages 2 and 3 worked tirelessly on their experiments while carefully following the scientific method. Inquiry was the hero of the day and there was a particular focus on the environmental sciences and our local surroundings and community.

 

Science boards were creatively constructed and presentations were prepared as well as experiment demonstrations. We had a great parent turnout who were able to visit each stand and ask some probing questions. Our parents voted for their favourite projects in each key stage and we are proud to announce that the winners are:

Key Stage 2 – Year 3B: Magnet Rafts

Key Stage 3  – Year 8: Combating Air Pollution through the Recycling of Rice Residue.

Parents and staff alike were quite impressed with the creativity, out of the box thinking, solution oriented and environmentally aware projects. We congratulate the winning groups and projects and can’t wait for next year’s fair. A huge thank you to our supportive parent base and the excitement and enthusiasm they brought to the event.
