Year 1 and 2 have been busy developing their map reading skills this week.
They have been using aerial photographs of the school to find the hidden Gruffalo characters.
The children have drawn the route on their maps and even begun to use grid references to identify the different locations. This will stand them in great stead for the next few years at Elleray as they soon have to start planning and plotting their very own adventures out on the fells and beyond.

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.
