Wimborne First School is a very special place, the staff, children, parents and all involved in the school bring it alive everyday. It is a busy place full of laughter, singing, fun, learning and sometimes tears. Each year children come and go and we watch them grow into young adults and mature to become citizens of the future. Our hope is that the school inspires children to love learning, show respect, be polite and have the skills to use when they go into their chosen careers. I hope that the children have a happy time in school and they go on to fulfil all their dreams and ambitions.
Thank you to everyone who contributes to the school and helps make it a very special place to be very proud of.

Creative Arts and Book Week 2015
World Book Day
On Thursday 4th March, the whole school celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite story book character, even the teachers and support staff got involved, it was great fun.
On Tuesday 3rd March, we kicked off our Creative Arts and Book week with a visit from the amazingly talented Martin Brown, illustrator of the Horrible Histories series. The children were treated to a demonstration on how he draws his characters and each class had the chance to meet Martin and ask him questions about his work.
One Year 4 child said, "Wow, it is amazing how he brings history to life! It was brilliant, I want to draw like that one day!"
Another Year 2 child said, "He was really good, I loved his drawings!"
Creative Arts and Book Week 2015
To help us celebrate World Book day and Creative Arts week, each class has chosen an illustrator to base their art projects around. Reception have been hearing all about Millie's magical hat and have started to create their own hats. Year 1 have been visited by a giant 3D gruffalo. Year 2's classrooms have been alive with the sounds of cockatoos from Quentin Blakes' book. Year 3 have been set the task of creating a giant Horrible Histories' Groovy Greek and Year 4 are creating their own diaries like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. KS1 and KS2 have also been visited by an illustration student from Arts University Bournemouth who has shared her drawings with us and explained how to become an illustrator!
It is going to be a brilliant week in Wimborne First!
