Wyborne Primary School
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school website.
Wyborne Primary is a primary school that is happy, caring and secure, which values children’s contributions and believes that the key to achievement is high self esteem. We promote respect, trust, understanding and tolerance within our school community.
"Our child is encouraged to do well in all aspects of the curriculum and has a high level of self-esteem."
Maciek Stepien from 2T has won a prize in the Fourth Plinth competition with his picture ‘The Fabulous Dinosaur Head.’ Wyborne submitted several entries and Miss Cox was thrilled to be told on Monday that Maciek’s drawing had been selected. He will be invited to attend an awards ceremony to receive a prize. We haven’t yet been told which category he won but we know that Maciek has won some fantastic art supplies. Well done Maciek! We’re all very proud. More
What a fantastic display of colours, characters and costumes we had on World Book Day at Wyborne. The children had all been given a theme or book title on which to base their costumes. Characters included, Where’s Wally, characters from Skellig, Three Blind Mice, The Three Little Pigs and a fantastic set of crocodile jaws from Peter Pan. The children will continue to do class work based on their choice of books and we thank parents for all their support with the costumes. Denise Hyland, leader of Greenwich Council, made a point of visiting the school to meet the children and talk to them about the books they are reading. All children were given a £1.00 book voucher which they could spend at the book fair – organised by Mrs Bunch and supported by Carole Bushell who regularly volunteers to help with the sale of books and collection of money. We are extremely grateful to them, and the other volunteers who supported Carole on the day. Please check your copy of Greenwich Time for pictures of the day. More
Year 6 pupils were given homework for half term, to research Sweden and present their findings in any medium. While no-one actually went to Sweden, one pupil did the next best thing. Jae Freeman went to the Swedish embassy during the holidays. She interviewed an embassy official, made a video of the interview, and backed it with Abba songs. What a fantastic piece of homework – Mrs McPartland and Miss Cox were really impressed with the standard of the homework they received from the classes. And Jae received a well-deserved headteacher’s award. More
