Team Building Day - Scarecrow Competition - Thursday 28th November 2019



On Thursday 28th November, all of Whitehouse children took part in a Scarecrow Competition which was aimed at developing children’s social and leadership skills so that they were more confident in working as a team and handling more confidently.


To continue to develop our love of reading, each class democratically chose a scarecrow linked with their favourite book character.
