Winston class is a Year Six class located in Pavilion One, on the left hand side as you come into the door. Miss Beard and Mrs Smith teach the class.
Like all classes in The Discovery School, our class was named after a famous scientist or inventor. In our case, this scientist was the world renowned Robert Winston. Click on the image below to learn more about the namesake of our class and what he is famous for.

Well done Bella Wallis! You ran an excellent campaign in our mock general election......you were brilliant!
Winston love reading!
We are continuing to work really hard on cultivating the children's enthusiasm for reading in Year 6. Our Reading Challenge continues and children are working towards achieving their "Book Bingo" challenges. Every book they read will move them closer towards the milestone markers for this year: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Daniel, Alex and Thomas are currently occupying the top three spaces on Winston's Reading Challenge leader board. Well done everyone - keep up the good work!
PE will be on Thursdays this term. Please make sure you have your full and correct school PE kits with you so that you can participate in these sessions. Excitingly, we have cricket coaches coming into school to teach Year 6 Quick Cricket.
Hair must be tied back and earrings removed. Now that we are enjoying warmer weather, please make sure that you have your short trousers and a spare pair of socks.
Our focus this term will be cricket and athletics.
The Year 6 Mock General Election
To help the children appreciate the complexities of a general election we split them into various political parties and tasked them to run their own campaign; culminating with a presentation to the rest of the school. Manifestoes were prepared and rallying speeches written and delivered. It was all tremendously exciting! Following the presentation in assembly, the whole school was invited to cast their votes, using authentic ballot papers and ballot boxes. What a fantastic experience.
As you can see, we've all been very busy!
