Red Nose Day for Comic Relief 2021

Comic Relief is a British charity that have helped to support 105.6 million people across the UK and around the world. The money that was raised last year helped to support organisations such as those supporting older people, communities who were disproportionately affected by coronavirus and organisations supporting frontline workers.

This year, to help raise money on Red Nose Day for Comic Relief,  we asked the pupils and staff to wear red or dress as their favourite superheroes.

There were so many amazing costumes depicting both fictional and real life superheroes. The level of creativity was fantastic, and we’re so proud of the children for making such an effort.

World Book Day 2021

We had a great time celebrating World Book Day this year!

The David Walliams assembly on Tuesday was incredibly exciting and the children were able to have an insight into what it takes to be a successful author. He even introduced his very own competition which you can access via the Masked Reader page.

On Thursday, many of the pupils dressed up both at home and school with some lovely accompanying masks to go with our masked reader theme. It was lovely to see all the hard work that went into those costumes.

Across the week, we had our own Masked Reader competition where the adults all put on their best disguises and read a short extract of a book that they love.

If you haven’t already, why not have a look at the videos and see how many you can guess!

Our School's 70th Birthday

Whitmore Park Primary School opened on the 10th February 1951 which means the school is 70 years old. We celebrated the school’s birthday with a ‘Zoom’ assembly for all of our children; a recording of this assembly can be seen on the right.

Back in 1951, the children made a book to share lots of information and photographs about the school’s opening. We have made this into an ebook which can be seen below. 

In 2014, we moved into a brand new building which was built on the same site.
