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.

https://analusnews.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/mysteryreaderkitlettercluebookandmore_pdf.jpgWe 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, (office@whitingshill.barnetmail.net). 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

Yet another successful Parent/Carer reading morning this Friday. Thank you to all those who came in to join our love of reading!

Are you a Festive Reader?

Books don’t need electricity or a screen!

We can read them anywhere and everywhere!

We are inviting you ALL (including parents and staff) to take the Whitings Hill Festive Reading Challenge during the Christmas holidays!

Think about different, exciting, fun and SAFE places you can enjoy a book whilst celebrating the holiday period.

Children – tell your parent/carer your idea and ask them if they could take a photograph of you reading your book in your ‘festive reading’ place.

Parent/carers and staff ask your children to take a picture of you in your ‘festive reading’ place.

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.
