Extreme Reading Competition
We held our first Extreme Reading Competition this year. Each child in the school was challenged to submit a picture of them reading in extreme situations. We had many entries and the children proved that reading can be done anywhere and everywhere.
Our three winners were Terae, Kayla and Adam.
Here are the winning entries and some other inspirational entries.
World Book Day
The children dressed up as their favourite book character for World Book Day. Here are the children with the best costumes from each class.
As part of World Book Day, each class in the school was paired with up with another class, where the children read their favourite book with another child.
The children in Key Stage 2 performed their Christmas Concert to the delight of their parents and carers.
Cross Country Race
On Wednesday, we took part in a cross country race around the school’s field and through the park. It was cold but we soon warmed up!
Some of us were so fast, we thought it would be funny to run backwards to the finishing line. Whilst we waited for our turn, personal trainers showed us how to warm up.
Children in Need
A big thank you to all the children who donated to Children In Need. We raised a massive £238.95.
A child from each class were invited to sit on the Top Table by the Pupil Leadership Team.
It was a gloomy and foggy Friday morning, when Charlie the school caretaker discovered the mysterious trunk at the back of the field.
Where had it come from? What was inside?
As part of creative writing day, the children of Scott Wilkie explored the possibilities of the secret behind the unearthed trunk.
Head Boy and Girl
A big congratulations to our new Head Boy, Head Girl and their Deputies.
We hope they will continue to be great role models and look forward to seeing how they will work together to move the school towards greater things.
Head Boy and Girl Elections
Here are our finalists for the Head Boy/Head Girl election. Well done and good luck!
Sam the Attendasaurus
Sam the Attendasaurus visited Scott Wilkie to promote attendance and to emphasize the importance of attending school regularly.
Sam will be returning to Scott Wilkie at Christmas, where children who have attended school every day for the rest of the term, will be to meet and have some play time together with Sam
On Friday 13th October Scott Wilkie hosted a huge amount of parents, carers and children for their first Maths Morning. The KS1 hall was packed with everyone enjoying maths games and activities.
Adults were given a chance to play with their children and many were astonished by their impressive maths skills! It’s really important to play games regularly children and embed their maths learning into everyday activities.
Parents also got a chance to go into lessons and see how brilliant their maths lessons are. We would like to say thank you very much to all the parents and carers who came in and we can’t wait to see you again on Friday 15th December.
School Events 2016-17
As part of the Cultural week, Reception and KS1 students were treated to a performance of traditional tales from different cultures. Our pupils helped Valentine (an actor from the Fresh Water Company) to perform a number of different stories and they had a great time.
Cultural dress-up day
Our students dressed up in traditional outfits to celebrate the diversity and unity within our school. This was the culmination of Cultural Week where we learnt and celebrated different cultures from home and abroad. Students brought foods which represent their cultural heritage and shared it their peers. We also learnt about the main five British values which are: democracy, rule of law, mutual respect, individual liberty and tolerance and respect.
Pupils from years 5 and 6 took part in a range of activities to mark the end of Cultural Week and to celebrate all they have learned in French this year. The students played Boule, tried refreshments in French style café, drew the Eifel Tower and took part in a French theatre workshop in which they acted out a traditional tale in French.
40th Anniversary Celebration
The past met the present in this fantastic celebration which brought the community together. Miss Ridley and Miss Blackwood choreographed and lead the performing arts to their best performance yet. The event was celebrated by governors, parents, alumni, and current and former staff members from the Scott Wilkie family, including Scott Wilkie’s first Headteacher, Mrs. Pierce.
Newham Debating League
Our debaters entered the Newham Debate League. They took part in three rounds throughout the year. There were two debates per round and our team won all six debates. The children became winners of the League which was a first Scott Wilkie and a great achievement for our school.
London Music Fund Scholarship
Tyrone (5A) has been awarded the London Music Fund Scholarship for his outstanding skills in playing the cello. He will receive a full scholarship over the next four years.
Tyrone is one of the only children in Newham to have received such an honour. This award not only reflects his ability but his incredible work ethic and dedication to music.
Well done, Tyrone.
