You are reading superstars !!!
We are starting our term with a bang this year! We have decided to start the term off with an 'Adventure Week'. Each year group will focus on a particular text that will lend itself to having all sorts of adventures. Working together to design and make dens, going on a honey hunt, becoming pirates, flying and exploring like Peter Pan, being lost and alone on a desert island and much more.
The children will have the opportunity to explore our newly revamped wooded area and our pond has now been cleared and will be ready to use once a platform has been installed. The children are very excited and we hope to keep our ducklings this year so the plan is to build a duck island.
Parents & Carers will be invited in for a picnic on Friday 22nd September and you will have the chance to come and have a look at our new outdoor space.
Watch this space for some amazing photos!
Adventure week at Whitings Hill
A massive thank you to all the children, staff and Parents & Carers who helped to make Adventure Week such a success.
Apart from a little inclement weather most of the week was bright and dry and allowed the children to really discover and explore the wooded area and pond.
We are very lucky to have such an amazing resource on our doorstep and there are further plans to develop the pond area further with a duck island and a pond dipping platform. The amazing FOWH have kindly agreed to fund us for these important resources.
The children have been doing a number of activities, including den building and going on a honey pot hunt.
Most classes finished off the week with a class picnic in and around the wooded area.
