I am pleased to welcome you to John Wilkinson Primary School and Nursery. Thank you for taking the time to explore what our school has to offer your children.
My name is Mrs Becky Kerr and I am proud to be the headteacher of our outstanding school.
My vision for the children and families at our school is to create a culture of curiosity where children who feel healthy, happy and safe, thrive. The learning opportunities that we carefully design, sequence and deliver ensure that your children are equipped to move onto the next phase in their education as well as cultivating a lifelong love of learning. Memorable experiences, high quality teaching and an exemplary curriculum engage and inspire our children to develop the characteristics of effective learners, understand the world around them (their school community as well as the local and global communities to which they belong) and grow into well-rounded citizens who demonstrate strong core values in their behaviour and conduct. We want all children to leave our school fully equipped to navigate the next stage of their school career and manage all that life may bring; academically, socially, emotionally and morally.
Nursery children have been super busy this week. At Forest School we learnt about nocturnal and diurnal animals, they were amazing at identifying which animals were in which group, and then they built some lovely homes for them. We've also been learning about the properties of ice. They explored different textures, and what happened when they mixed paint with the melting ice. Of course it wouldn't be early learning if we didn't finish off with a penguin dance! ;)
