The Fairy-tale Ball 2019

Children in Reception and key Stage 1 have been reading and learning all about traditional tales. At the end of the topic, they held an amazing Fairy-tale Ball. Everyone came dressed as a character from their favourite tale (even the staff) and took part in lots of fun activities, including making a mask for the ball and fairy-tale maths!  Well done everyone.

The Great WHPS bake off!

As part of their topic work this term, all the children in Year 3 and 4 took part in an enterprise project. They began by working in a team to pitch their idea for the ‘bake off’ to Mrs Palmer-Coole (AKA Alan Sugar) and were then give the money to make their chosen products.

They spent a whole day baking and the results were truly amazing. On the afternoon of 7th February, they invited Parents and Carers to afternoon tea in the hall. They decorated the tables and served the tea and cakes. It was a brilliant project and at the end they made a healthy profit too. Well done everyone. Good luck with the next enterprise project!

A Royal Mystery!

All the children in Key stage 1 helped to make a giant chocolate cake for their Royal party. They are studying traditional tales and fairy tales in English and are reading a fantastic story called, “Small Knight and George and the Royal Chocolate Cake.” Now the cake has gone missing and the mystery must be solved… Good luck everyone!

Table Tennis Champions 2018

Our new U11 table tennis team played brilliantly at Springwell School, to win the competition. In a closely fought championship, they eventually won by one point. Well done team! They are now through to the next round and we all wish them good luck.

Children in Need 2018

Our assembly theme for this term is ‘compassion’. As we are always looking for ways to help others and care for those less fortunate, supporting Children in Need was a perfect opportunity. This year, the School Council organised a great day of fun for us. We all came dressed in yellow and in the afternoon the staff took part in a game show to entertain everyone. At the end of a fun day, we had raised £473.25, which we have split between Young Minds and Children in Need. Thank you everyone for your support.

Remembrance Assembly

On Friday 9th November the School Council led a special Remembrance Assembly to mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Everyone listened carefully to the readings and joined in singing our Remembrance song – ‘We will remember’. As part of the assembly –the poppies that the children had made, were collected and displayed during a minute’s silence.
