Autumn Update 2019
Everyone came back to school in September feeling refreshed after the summer holidays and ready to start the new academic year.
We welcomed 28 children in Reception and 14 more children throughout the rest of the school. This takes our total number of children on roll to 166.
Year 4 began the year with a new teacher, Miss Jones, who has settled in very well and is enjoying her new class.
After School Clubs
The children are enjoying the after school clubs. We have introduced some new clubs this term. KS1 took part in Multi Sports, while KS2 enjoyed learning Hockey for the first time.
The Out of the Blue team from Norton Priory is continuing with their Art Club on Wednesdays for KS2 and the children are working on different projects each week.
Meanwhile, the dance club is preparing for the Runcorn Schools’ Gotta Dance Show which will be taking place in March at The Brindley.
Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer Now
On Friday 18th October, everyone came in to school wearing pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. There were also cakes on sale and a ‘Guess How Many Flamingos’ game. In total we raised £265.50.
Once again, the children are preparing for our annual Talent Show, to which all parents are invited. The children will showcase their diverse talents and demonstrate how we are all equal no matter how different. This is to promote Anti-Bullying Week. Reception Open Evening We are holding an Open Evening on Tuesday 3rd December from 3.30pm until 5.30pm for Reception starters in September 2020. There is no need to make an appointment. If you would like to come and have a look around, please come to the main reception.
The countdown to Christmas has begun! The children are busy rehearsing for the show in December and there are lots of other activities planned. We have also planned a trip for the whole school to see Sleeping Beauty on Ice at Planet Ice in Widnes.
Windmill Hill has launched an Instagram page. If you would like to follow our school, please request to join.
Our page is @WindmillHillSchool.
We would like to say goodbye to Mr Mike Shepherd who has been a governor at our school for many years. Mike has decided to retire from his duties as a governor.
Mike is an integral part of the Windmill Hill community and we have been very lucky to have his support during this time. He has championed our school and aided its growth.
Enjoy your retirement Mike!
