Primary schools visit for 'International Whitley'

On Monday 23rd January, pupils from a selection of local primary schools joined us for ‘International Whitley’, an international themed morning, aimed at giving Year 6 pupils a taste of Whitley Academy's facilities and lessons.

The PE department prepared our Sports Hall for a morning of PARKOUR, an obstacle based sport developed from French military training where the aim is to get over all the obstacles in the quickest and most effective way possible. 

Whitley Academy staff and student leaders gave a helping hand throughout the morning, offering help and guidance to the Year 6 pupils.

In History, the focus was on the French revolution, with pupils creating battle shields. 

In Modern Foreign Languages, pupils were learning about the French language, and building their own Eiffel towers. 

A big thank you to Stretton Primary school, Whitley Primary school, Manor Park Primary school, and Aldermoor Farm Primary school for bringing the pupils along. We hope they enjoyed the day.
