LAST DAYS OF TERM - OWN CLOTHES
On Monday 19th July pupils and staff at school are invited to wear colourful clothes in support of our school Confidance project.
Confidance deliver high quality dance work with integrity, creativity and integration at its heart. They work in schools, community settings, and arts venues, making dance and performance with dancers with learning disabilities.
They have been working with Whitfield Aspen School to deliver dance workshops across the school and on Monday 19th July we will be filming class performances to create a whole school video.
With Tuesday 20th July being our last day of term, this will also be an own clothes day, we felt this was a nice end to the term.
Please note that Year 6 have been communicated separately about the last few days of term regarding their clothing.

Children across the school painted poppies onto wooden discs for our Acts of Remembrance. Some of the poppies were beautifully crafted into a wreath that was laid at the War Memorial in Whitfield. Others were given to Rev. Sean Sheffield to use as part of his service. We will be placing the rest around the school grounds on Wednesday 11th November.
Happy 100th Birthday Captain Tom!
Have you heard about the amazing achievement of Captain Tom? He has been walking to raise money for the NHS and he is 99 - soon to be 100 (30th April)! His current total fundraising is £22,000,000 (22 million!)
Key-worker children have been creative by using PE equipment to make pictures for Captain Thomas Moore. Can you spot their aerial art? The children have also received replies from Riverlea Nursing home residents. If you would like to make Captain Tom a birthday card, the address is below:
The Key Worker children have been having a Robot Day. They had to think about how robots could help people during the Coronavirus pandemic. Some of their ideas included: robotic pets to help relieve loneliness during the lockdown, robots to disinfect hospital wards as well as robots to help parents keep their homes tidy with everyone at home! The children then made their own 'junk model' robot and we took some photographs of them enjoying the sunshine in the Memorial Garden.

61 survived - the most we've ever had. 6 children received interesting design awards. CONGRATULATIONS! Mrs Betts.
