The school year is well and truly underway now. As I walk around the school I see busy classrooms, productive small group activities. Every corner of the school is used for teaching and learning. Add to this the many (many) extra-curricular activities that are run at breaktimes, lunchtimes and after school, Whitehill is certainly a place to be if you want to learn and have an enjoyable time doing so!

Many of our Year 6s have been completing their ‘Bikeability’ this week and have been about and about the local area on their bikes being put through their paces by a team of instructors. From what I have seen, they have been doing very well and showing they understand the need to be vigilant and careful when riding on ...

This week’s blog starts with the Early Season Football Rally which was held at Wilshere Dacre School last Saturday morning. It was a beautiful day and it was a great morning’s football. Our three sports coaches, Mr Gentle, Mr Miley and Mr White had a squad of nine boys from Year 5 and Year 6 and matches were played against a number of other local schools. I was really impressed with the way the boys worked as a team and encouraged each other. By the end of the morning we had won four out of the five games we played and were unlucky with the other. Given the content of Alex’s ‘Head Boy Speech’, earlier in the week, perhaps something to be really celebrated are the two goals he scored! He mentioned in this speech that he hadn’t managed a goal for the schoo...

In English we have been doing poetry and the class have been writing their  own dinosaur  poems. We have learnt about similes and metaphors in poetry.  We tried to use them in our own poems.  We kept listening to a dinosaur song.  Mrs Little said that songs were poems to music.

In maths we have been learning place value and doing our 2, 3 and 4 times tables.  We played bingo for our 3 times table.  In our 2 times tables we played Top Marks Hits the Button.  There are questions for that ...

After break, Upper School went to ‘The Four Functions’ maths show to discover the treasure of Captain Half-Inch. We loved helping Pip solve the maths. It was really fun.

This week, 6CB have been learning about the Tudors. Yesterday we did art which included us doing self-portraits in Tudor dress. We learnt about the court painter of Henry VIII, Hans Holbein, who was sent around Europe to paint princesses for Henry to marry. Last Friday, we made posters about the Tudors. Did you know that they actually originated in Wales?

Last Thursday in extended writing we watched a short film called The Dream Giver. Mrs Bailey stopped it half way through and then we had to continue the story in our books....

'I spent a delightful day at Whitehill School in November 2014, doing grammar with the children.
They were a joy to teach - very focussed and keen to answer questions - and it was clear that their teachers encourage a real interest in language, something that's often sadly lacking in primary children I meet.  It was clear from everything about the school (the corridor and classroom displays, the play areas, the clubs going on at lunchtime, the smooth-running administration and, above all, the teachers' cheerfulness and enthusiasm) that Whitehill is a really happy school, providing the sort of 'broad and balanced curriculum' that's exciting for everyone involved and turns children into committed lifelong learners.  It's always splendid to find such schools in the current educational climate, where there's immense external pressure to concentrate on a narrow tests-and-targets agenda, at the expense of other important (but probably immeasurable) aspects of primary education.  I'm sure that the Whitehill children I met will do well in national tests, but they're also lucky enough to be spending their childhood in a vibrant educational environment which, in the long run, will enrich their lives and further their careers much more than test scores.’

Welcome To Our Website

Welcome to the Whitehill Junior School website. I hope that our site will not only give you a flavour of the ethos and expectations of our school, but will also highlight many of the amazing opportunities that the pupils at Whitehill will be offered in their four years with us.

These are very exciting times for everyone associated with Whitehill as we look to build upon its many previous successes. The school has a reputation for developing its pupils as ‘learners’ through the extensive range of activities  they experience in the classroom  coupled with our extra-curricular enrichment  programme. Education is all about the process rather than an end product and at Whitehill we aim to nourish and maintain that natural drive and curiosity whilst striving to help them achieve their true potential.

A successful working partnership between home and school is essential in order to support your child in their education. To this end, communication is a key factor in ensuring  your child has a successful journey. As well as this website, parents are able to receive latest updates via our Twitter feed and also regular newsletters. This, however, cannot replace the face to face contact and dialogue that is actively encouraged between pupils, staff and parents.

If you would like to visit the school we are all very proud of, and see our community in action, one of our pupil ambassadors would be delighted to give you a guided tour. Please approach the school office for further details.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you to our school in the near future.

Since we cannot know what is needed in the future we cannot teach it in advance. Schools need to turn out children who love learning so much they can learn whatever needs to be learnt.
