Several children visited Whitburn Winter Festival this year to sing carols and enjoy the festivities. The children enjoyed performing and the chocolate treats they received afterwards. We would like to thank the children and their families for being such great representatives for our school. Well done everyone.
We started the morning with a lovely Harvest Assembly. Mrs Grieveson led the school in singing some uplifting songs about harvest and we thought about what harvest is and how we can help others at harvest time. We are very grateful to all of the families who have donated to our harvest collection which will be delivered to Hope and Hospitality.
As part of their Mayans topic, year six were lookin g at food discovered in ancient civilisation. Mrs Baker, from Fair Trade, came in to talk to the children about the history of chocolate, the production of chocolate today and the role of Fair Trade. We really enjoyed it because it had a strong link to or last geography topic, which was Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest. We learned a lot! Moreover, we enjoyed the chocolate sample even more!
Whitburn Village Primary School were represented by children in nursery, year one. year three and year six in this year’s Whitburn’s Got Talent contest. The children were chosen through a vote after completing auditions in school. Although they didn’t win on the night, we think they are brilliant. Well done to all the children who shared their talents.
