Key Strings Concert: December 2014
We were lucky enough to have a visit from Key Strings in December.It got us all in the mood for Christmas with some great songs and they taught us about musical terms such as 'pitch' and 'tempo'. Lots of us got up to the front of the hall with the performers to try out instruments like the Cello.
Internet Safety Event: October 2014
Thank you to the parents/carers who attended our internet safety workshop in October. The session ran after school and was repeated in the evening. This enabled us to highlight the potential dangers of the internet and ways to protect your child. As a result of your feedback we will run more workshops next term. Mrs McAree, Mr Bryan and John (PCSO) enjoyed meeting with you and answering your questions.
Wolf's Tea Party!
Reception welcomed all of their parents and carers to join us for a Wolf's Tea Party! Everyone had a great time and nobody was afraid of the Big Bad Wolf. We sang songs, baked (and ate) our own delicious cakes and showed off lots of the great work we had done as part of our topic.
Macmillan Cancer Coffee Morning Friday 19th September 2014
In our new resource room we held a charity coffee morning for parents to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support. The selection of cakes, loaves, cookies and sponges were very appetising and with your help we managed to raise over £225 with money still coming in. Thank you to all who took part and supported this event.
2014 World Cup Assembly
Whitfield Valley children had the opportunity to join in the excitement of the Football World Cup. Each class had to research and learn about a particular country’s culture that was taking part in the World Cup. Classes found out about their country’s flag, learned factual information, sung songs, spoke in different languages and cooked and tasted food that was traditional to their chosen nation. They learned interesting facts from countries such as Spain, Germany, England, Chile, Uruguay, Honduras and France. It was a very exciting day and each class had the opportunity to share this information with the rest of the school during their assembly.
