Welcome to Whitings Hill's English page
Whitings Hill will be celebrating WORLD BOOK DAY on Tuesday 27th February 2018!
We would like to have a day full of fun activities to celebrate.
The staff dressing up theme will be ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Children are more than welcome to follow this theme or come in dressed as their favourite book character.
We will be choosing one child from each class as the overall winner for the most original costume and they will have the chance to go to Waterstones that day to choose a book.
We will be having a ‘mystery reader’ for each class. This reader could be sent to any class in the school. If you are interested in coming in for a 15 minute reading session, please can you email Mrs. Abdel-All through the office, ( Please indicate when you might be available, morning or afternoon. If chosen you will receive a note home stating when and where you will be reading!
Please email us by Tuesday 20th February if you are interested. We will provide the reading books!
At 2pm that day we would like to invite parents/carers in for a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Children are welcome to bring in their favourite cuddly toy to join us. We will provide ‘juice ‘in teapots and iced buns for everyone. Some teachers may request that you bring in other food; they will contact you separately about that.
As always, thank you for your continued support. Mrs. Abdel-All

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.
