World Book Day 2018

Whitburn Village Primary was invaded by book characters this week.  We all enjoyed reading and sharing stories together.  Thank you to everyone who helped with the costumes. We think the children looked amazing.


World Book Day 2018

We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 8th March. Children are invited to dress up as their favourite book character. Thank you.

School Closure

We would like to thank parents and guardians for their support today.

Due to the current weather conditions and forecast for snow throughout the night and tomorrow, school will be closed on Thursday 1st March. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.  Please check the website for further updates as Parentmail is feeling the effects of the cold and is currently down.

World Book Day will be rearranged for a later date.

E-safety Presentation

Parents and guardians are warmly invited to attend an e-safety presentation on Wednesday 7th March at 5:00p.m.  The main purpose of the presentation will be to learn about specific online concerns and dangers and to find out how you can minimise the risks to ensure that your children stay safe in their use of technology.

We hope to see you there.

Maths in Motion

On Thursday the 8th Year 6 went to The Word!   We worked with maths and racing cars.  We used maths to work out percentages about the fuel and distance.  We used protractors to solve the angles of the track.  At the end of the afternoon we all had a race.  Everyone was really excited and looking forward to the results.

The 1st place was Zane, Finlay and Rupert with Team Caterham.

2nd place Jacob, Harry and Evan with Team Ferrari.

3rd place Natasha, Jessica and Paige with Team Brabham

Linking with Nepal

Children in year 6 wrote letters to children in Nepal.  These were delivered by Linda Barron when she visited earlier this year.  The children were delighted to receive replies when Linda returned to England.  Linda is now raising money to rebuild Budland English school.  Click here to find out more.
