As part of our topic on Famous People, Years 1 & 2 have been learning about Beatrix Potter. On Monday we spent the afternoon doing lots of exciting activities to consolidate our learning.
We painted some famous characters such as Mrs Tiggywinkle and Peter Rabbit with watercolours. We all planted some carrot seeds and completed some puzzles and games.
Finally, as a treat we watched some of the recent Peter Rabbit film, filmed in Windermere! We had a brilliant time and are hoping to visit The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction very soon.
The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
