West Wimbledon Primary School - May 2015

Anyone for Tennis? 

The Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative team visited West Wimbledon Primary School on Wednesday 11th March. All nursery, reception and Year One classes enjoyed tennis sessions led by the head coaches of the Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative programme. 

They had fun learning and practising some agility, balance and co-ordination games that support the development of tennis skills. The programme is funded by the Wimbledon All England Lawn Tennis Club to support tennis in the local area and to maybe even find the next Andy Murray from a local school. 

National Gallery Artists’ Trip 

Six talented artists from Key Stage 2 enjoyed a trip to the National Gallery in London. The children loved exploring the history and techniques behind various works - from grand medieval paintings (painted for palaces and churches) to the breakaway 19th century impressionism. Sketch books were out and at the ready when looking at Monet's 'The Water Lily Pond' and Van Gogh's 'The Sunflowers' (two famous works that were instantly recognisable to all!)

Gallery staff not only commented on the superb level of skill that went into the children's sketches, but also their excellent behaviour. "I loved every moment of the day," said Saranjan. "Can I ask Mr. Harris if we can go to another art gallery?" Watch this space...
