A Friday Night Round Up from Mr Schumm

Good afternoon,

A fresh off the press round up after a triumphant trip to KidZania with the winning House Crummell! We had a super time in the mini-world of KidZania trying out lots of different jobs and earning money from them. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you to all the adults who helped with the trip – early night for all!

Thank you as well to all those parents who joined us for our Ash Wednesday service last week. The church was packed and who delivered that excellent talk on how we need to have the strength to say NO when we are tempted? Stop, stop – you know it was me! The children sang and read beautifully and the church was filled with joyous voices raising the roof as always.

Movie Night was a rip roaring success with the usual amount of snacking, chatting and somehow watching the movie in between. Thank you to FOSS for organising such a great event. The children loved it!

This week has been a fun packed educational one filled with all things books! The children’s costumes were superb – I was The Bad Guy’s Mr Wolf! I love the Book Character Parade so much – it is such a joy to see the children in their costumes parading confidently around the hall – check out the class blogs and our fantastic newsletter for all the details on this and all the other things we got up to for World Book Day this year.

Year 4 at the Tower!

On Monday, Year 4 went to the Tower of London. The trip did a great job in really making tangible many of the facts we learned during our recent History unit of work on the Normans and a great time was had by all!

A Word from FOSS

We have decided to move our Camping Trip to next year. Instead we will have an All Countries Cultural Dance Party, Thursday 8 June! Closer to the time, we will ask you to send us your favourite songs…so get your dancing shoes ready, it’s going to be loads of fun!

Winkworth have displayed our childrens’ gorgeous drawings for World Book Day on their office windows at 97 Uxbridge Road. Check them out! We are so impressed with the talent we have in this school! Thank you to all the children for participating, we can’t wait to get our new library books!

We need a small group of parents to lead this year’s Summer Fair. Who’s in? We have a handover document with all the information you will ever need! 

Sporting Highlights January/ February


Tag Rugby v Wetherby: around 30 in each of Year 4, 5 and 6 will have played a match over the course of this term at Club des Sports. 

Year 4 Netball Match v Good Shepherd: we took 16 children to play a friendly mixed match in Ravenscourt Park against Good Shepherd.

Borough Competitions

H&F Netball Tournament: we took 2 teams (we were able to take a very last minute B team). Our A team won the tournament, and will go on to compete in the London Youth Games representing the Borough in the Spring Finals at the end of March.

H&F Skittleball Year 4: we took a non-competitive team to this event, as it was a London Youth Games Inspire event.

London Youth Games Sportshall Athletics: our Year 5&6 team had qualified to represent the Borough by winning the H&F competition last term. This competition was a higher level, where we competed against 7 other Boroughs’ winning teams. We came 5th overall.

H&F Dodgeball Year 3/4: we took a Year 3 team to this (another Inspire event, so non-competitive).

H&F Year 3/4 Girls’ Football Tournament: our team played very well and got to the final, where we were narrowly beaten (silver medallists).

H&F Year 5/6 Girls’ Football Tournament: again, a great day of football, with plenty of goals scored and we didn’t concede a goal at all until the semi-finals, where we were very narrowly beaten by John Betts.

Mayor’s Cup: we still have a couple of matches to go in the round robin stage. Currently both the boys and girls are top of their groups, with two matches remaining, so it’s looking good for progression to the knock-out stages.

Have a fantastic Weekend – wrap up warm as despite being March it’s still a bit nippy out there!
