SSSN Orienteering


This was an event based around to increase engagement and enjoyment through cognitive thinking. The team consisted of 8 pairs who had to map read, travel to the points in the area and retrieve either a letter or number then solve the words or equations. The squad worked really well as a team and used their ability wisely to get the answers very quickly. A great demonstation of the WHA value of teamwork!

SSSN Hockey Competition

Our Hockey team took part in the SSSN competitive competition against other schools within the Slough network. The team showed passion and determination to adapt their match play against all their opponents. They were able to progress out of the group stages with some fantastic team play through fantastic defending and outstanding attacking play creating numerous scoring opportunities. The team sadly lost in the semi final but never gave up and showed the WHA value of resilience througout. Bravo to everyone who took part!

Panathlon Challenge

The Panathlon Challenge was a mutli sport competitive event. Our pupils represented WHA in a wide range of skill based activities where they gained points and competed against other schools within the Slough Schools Sports Network. All our pupils gained confidence and self-belief throughout the event and managed to secure 3rd place! A fantastic achievement!

KS1 Fencing Festival

Pupils were given the opportunity to try out Fencing through fun games and activities at an event held by SSSN. They were able to use the fencing swords and got the chance to wear fencing masks and have matches against each other. Pupils found the event very interesting and had an enjoyable time taking part in a new sport.

The Park Federation Basketball Competition

Our Year 4 Basketball team took on the other 7 schools in our Park Federation competition. The standard was very high across all schools with some fantastic displays of play and sportsmanship. WHA progressed out of their group and went on to win both their semi final against Montem Academy and the final against Godolphin Junior Academy. The team showed brilliant teamwork and positive attitude throughout the competition.

SUSTRANS Bike to School week

Bike to School Week took place from 28 September to 2 October 2020. We promoted and encouraged our children and families to come to school by bike, scooter or foot. We recorded numbers of around 2 thirds which was great and offered extra 'fun' sessions of PE and Computing for the 2 classes with the most children (and school staff) taking part.

As a celebration and thank you to all the children who supported the cycle, scoot and walk to school week we ran our first ever Tour de WHA on Friday 9th October.

We invited the whole school from Year 1 to Year 6 to come to school with their bike or scooter. We relaxed our 'no cycling' and 'no scooting' policy and ran short sessions during the school day for the children to complete circuits of the playground. As you can see from the photos the bike shed and racks were pretty full! Over 260 children took part and safely completed several 'tours' of the playground in their year group bubbles. This event was a great success and hugely enjoyable so we will definitely be doing it again!
