The unique WDPS Life Skills Challenge program has been created because all children need a key skills-set in order to develop their potential and to make their life dreams become a reality.
All visitors help us to become enquirers and to learn and discover new things about the world.
Visiting 10 Downing Street helps us appreciate that the WDPS Core Values are reflected in fundamental ‘British Values.’
WDPS Cycle offsite multi-day challenges help us all to develop resilience and to become effective team players.
We develop higher-level thinking skills online by learning to analyse, synthesise and evaluate.
Our teachers appreciate that we are all unique individuals with different learning styles.
Learning is fun as our Teachers plan exciting learning experiences through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
The all–weather WDPS Mountain Bike and Running Trail helps us develop fitness, stamina and essential bike-handling skills.
We learn from different world cultures which helps shape us into well-balanced and open-minded global citizens.
In the WDPS Bushcraft Area we develop our Multiple Intelligences and self-confidence whilst learning to manage risks.

Space Topic

The children were very excited by the rocket and space men in the small world area.  We embarked upon a range of activities to expand their knowledge of outer space.  We drizzled PVA glue onto large sheets of paper in circular movements and sprinkled ‘moon dust’ to form craters.  We cut out play dough stars and added them to pictures of outer space.    The children chose materials to decorate pictures of rockets and finally we ate ‘space food’ from plastic bags as the astronauts do while up in space.

Easter open day

The nursery children invited their grown-ups to ‘Stay and Play’ in nursery.  There was an assortment of activities based on an Easter theme.  We made pop-up flowers, chocolate nests with eggs and chicks and painted Easter egg pictures using wooden pegs and cotton wool balls.

Colour mixing

We dipped balloons into trays of paint and mixed the colours onto the surface of pieces of paper.  Later we added powder paints to white shaving foam and mixed colours together using our hands to create lovely pastel shades.

Holi

We have celebrated the Hindu Spring Festival of Holi in class.  As a class we watched a video showing Indian children throwing powder paint onto each other and their parents.  We chose lovely bright coloured paints and used our hands to make lots of coloured handprints which were later cut out to make collages of Indian Elephants.

Japanese doll day

Every year at the Hina Matsuri festival in Japan, young girls set up a display of ornamental dolls.  They set them up on steps covered in red carpet. This is a day to pray for young girl's growth and happiness. It is also called 
"Momo no sekku (Peach Festival)" because of the peach blossom season. Everyone was invited to bring a doll or action figure to nursery to wish for health and happiness.

Spanish day

Today we joined the rest of the school and celebrated ‘Spanish Day’.  We chopped up fruit and mixed it up with fruit juices and lemonade to make our own version of ‘Sangria’.  Mrs Taylor made Spanish toast which we thoroughly enjoyed for our afternoon snack. Later we were taught some Spanish dancing which was great fun.
