TWHF Literacy Festival June 2015
TWHF Excellence Awards 2015
The idea to hold this awards evening came about after a series of visits to our schools and I was struck by the outstanding practice that existed and the quality of the experiences that our children were having on a daily basis.
Too often it is easy to just accept this as “the norm” – but when you work and support other schools outside The WHF family, it gives you a new perspective on what exceptional colleagues we have and how everyone goes the extra mile for the students in our care.
So we decided to celebrate all the amazing and hard working people that we are lucky enough to call colleagues and friends.

We were bubbling with excitement as we prepared to leave for the ‘White Horse Federation Science Festival’ which was held at Croft Primary school. The theme was Star Trek with a particular focus on outer space. Four of us were chosen to attend from years 3,4,5 and 6 and arrived at school for 8:15 on Thursday wearing our Star Trek costumes. We looked fab!
When we arrived at Croft we met with the other 7 schools from the Federation and were informed of the plan for the day.
In the morning we watched all 8 schools present their class projects which were:
– Year 3- a new magnetic game
– Year 4- a new robot
– Year 5- a space presentation
– Year 6- a new Star Ship
Throughout the morning 2 judges from Intel watched our presentations and looked at our designs then presented trophies to the winners. We were so excited when Year 3 won the trophy for the best magnetic game.
Then we completed a number of different workshops. As we moved around the workshops we gathered stickers to add to our Galactic ID tags. We got to make ice-cream in a bag, lava lamps, chocolate rocks, love potions, Space footprints, explosion of colour using milk and food colouring, making silly noises using string, plastic cups and a wet paper towel and finally cold crystals.
A teacher from Ridgeway Secondary School then came and did an amazing show involving fire and explosions. We were all blown away.
At the end of the day the judges awarded trophies to the winning homeworks and the final trophy for the school with the most outstanding contribution was given- which was us. We were so proud!
On Thursday October 9th Tregoze took part in the White Horse Federation Arts Festival at the Tidworth Garrison theatre. The theme this year was World War One and all classes had a group project related to that theme. In addition to that Year two and upwards were asked to perform a piece of dance, poetry or music on the day and the whole school had the opportunity to submit some homework for the festival.
We all met at school on the morning of the 9th ready to travel to Tidworth by minibus. In all we took 28 children from Tregoze – 4 children from each year group plus the performing arts performers.
It was a great day – the theatre was enormous but the performers coped well with any nerves and made Tregoze proud. After lunch each year group was set a task – all tools and materials needed were given to the group and they were asked to make something specific from World War One. The task encouraged creativity, communication and group work skills.
At the end of the afternoon the winners were presented with Trophies and all participants were given a medal. Tregoze won two trophies – the group project winner went to Reception and the group task on the day went to Year 3.
We returned to Tregoze tired but buzzing with new experiences and looking forward to next year’s festival.
