Every few weeks we choose children from our class to be our


Whitwell's Outstanding Worker



17th June 2022

During our Health Promotion week we have taken part in lots of different activities. Natalie has been really enthusiastic all week and has loved being active.
We have discovered that Natalie has a special talent!
Not only can she hula hoop for a good length of time...she can hula hoop with 3 and 4 hoops at a time!!
This is definitely a WoW moment Natalie - well done!

Adeline's confidence has grown so much this year. She is a completely different girl now from the one who timidly walked through our door in September.
During our Health Promotion week we had an active workshop led by Carl. He picked Adeline to stand at the front of the hall to show everyone her moves. This was in front of all Nursery and Reception children and staff. She did this without any hesitation!
Congratulations on your second WoW this year Adeline - which you absolutely deserve!
