Whitehill End of Term Bulletin: May 24th 2024

As we approach the final term and reflect upon the year so far, there has been so much amazing learning and memories being formed. We are very proud of how much the children have grown as people.

Our year 6 students approached the end of Key Stage SATs last week with calmness, resilience and fortitude. They are a credit to the school and very much maturing in readiness for Secondary.

The team at Whitehill are already having conversations and putting plans in place to support all of our children with the transition into new classes and schools. Secondary schools have already started visiting our year 6 pupils in readiness for September. We will be having a whole school transition day on July 4th. Before then, the children will receive a welcome letter from their new class teachers and support staff. More information regarding transition will follow in the new term but in the meantime, should you have any specific concerns regarding transition, please speak to your child's class teachers.

We hope that you enjoy reading about some of this term's highlights below. You can find out more regarding the learning of specific year groups by going to the learning tab of this website.

Wishing you all a safe and happy half-term break. We look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday 3rd of June!

Best wishes,

Community Art Week

We have been very lucky to have the ceramic artist Ayesha Weekes come and work with the school this week. Ayesha has worked with all of our children from Reception year through to year 6, teaching us about clay and sculpture. Each of the children has created a clay sculpture that once fired will be combined to form two larger pieces of artwork. These will be on display in the Key Stage 1 and 2 main entrances. The children's artwork has been stunning and in addition to learning lots, they have had a great deal of fun. Thank you Ayesha!

Year 4 Residential - PGL Suffolk

All manner of learning and enjoyment was had when some of our year 4 students went camping in Suffolk. Thank you to those members of the team who made this happen!

Building Improvements Update

We are pleased to inform you that phase 1 of the quad improvements is complete. Considerable ground works had to be done to make the area safe and level. The installation of a wheelchair friendly patio space has transformed the area. Phase 2 involves erecting a waterproof cover so that children can work and have lunch out there - whatever the weather! Phase 3 will involve the construction of raised planters and a greenhouse. We will keep you posted as this evolves.
