A Life in Service

A Life in Service - Queen Elizabeth II (1926 - 2022)

We are all saddened by the news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen.

Following this sad news, we will come together this morning as a whole school family to give thanks for her wonderful life, selfless service and courageous leadership.

We understand that this will be a sensitive time for many families and if you have any concerns of worries, please do let your child's class teacher know.

The Queen was an amazing example to us all and everyone at the Whiteoak Academies of Hannah More Infants & Grove Juniors sends their thoughts to the Royal Family and all who were close to them.

Reading & Exercise Miles Global Challenge

It’s not that easy to travel at the moment so why not read or exercise your way around the world with our Reading & Exercise Miles Global Challenge.

Collect 500 miles for every 10 minutes you spend reading or exercising, either alone or with a parent, carer, or your brother or sister. You could even video call your relatives and read aloud to them or exercise together! 

You could print your own reading passport or use the pictures online to watch the miles stack up on your very own world tour – a whopping 33,000 miles (or 11 hours) in total! 

The challenge is split into seven journeys, each of which finishes in a ‘checkpoint city’. If you'd like to, you can even send postcards to your family to tell them where you’ve been. 

At the end of the challenge, email school at to let us know how far you got and we will try and mention as many people as possible in our next celebration assembly.

Happy travelling!
