pictures for Whitby Dene

Our Key Worker children have completed some wonderful inspiring pictures that we delivered to Whitby Dene Care Home to brighten the residents day.

Rainbows

During the school closure we asked children to post photos of any rainbows they've drawn. Children have been putting pictures of rainbows in their windows to brighten everyone's day.

I think we can all agree that they are very uplifting.

Thank you to:

Gracie, Isaac, Jaya, Kiruthesh, Kyra, Matilda, Nyasha, Rosie, Sruthi, Syrus and Veena

We've had an informative assembly from Wealdstone FC this afternoon on Health, Fitness and Wellbeing.

The children learnt that you have to eat healthily if you want to be a professional athlete.

Jack and Lewis from the Wealdstone team then answered lots of questions from the children about football.

We're sure that Wealdstone FC will have gained a few new supporters.

Storytelling Bedtime story

We held this to celebrate National Storytelling Week.

As part of National Storytelling Week we invited the children to come back to school for a Bedtime Story in their PJs, with their favourite teddy.  They enjoyed a hot chocolate and cookie afterwards.

It was extremely popular with over 200 children listening to range of different stories including a short, scary story by Anthony Horrowitz, The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo and Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon.

Choir - Whitby Dene Christmas 2019

CAROL CONCERT AT WHITBY DENE

What a wonderful choir we have. Having performed in four Carol Concerts this week the year 5 and 6 members brought some Christmas cheer to our friends in Whitby Dene Care Home.

The residents thoroughly enjoyed listening to the choir sing and clapped and joined along with them.

I am very proud of these choir members as they missed out on some of their class party time or their Christmas film to visit the home but they all agreed afterwards how much they enjoyed making the residents smile.

All of our classes have a pen pal at Whitby Dene and so it was a fantastic opportunity to strengthen those links.

Well done to the choir and to Miss Duckett and Miss Flanagan for organising this.

christmas concerts

Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to support the children perform in their Christmas Carol Concerts on Monday 16th December and Tuesday 17th December.  It was a very festive and musical display of the talents of our Choir and year groups. Thank you for singing so beautifully.

 

RAF Band Assembly

We were treated to a wonderful concert performed by the RAF Band based at RAF Northolt.  The musicians explained their instruments to the children and introduced them to jazz, samba and reggae music as well as playing a range of music that the children could join in with and sing including a song from The Greatest Showman.

The Children really enjoyed the concert. One pupil told me 'I wish they could stay here all day and I could listen to them.

Their visit even made the RAF Northolt News!

Congratulations to our Raffle Winners Summer and Senyo from Year 3 who won Pudsey and Blush in our Children in Need Raffle.

Lovely new homes for our Children in Need bears.

Shoebox appeal

This year we have once again supported the Samaritans Christmas Shoe Box Appeal.  The appeal aims to send children who are less fortunate, a shoe box full of gifts at Christmas time. 
This donation ensures that children who would not normally receive a Christmas present will have something to open on Christmas morning. Each class has filled their own shoe box, any spares will also be donated.  This year we managed to donate 37 shoe boxes!
