Lo que aprendimos esta semana (Verano 3)

This week 2DH astounded the teachers with their recall of not just the animals in the story Oso Marrón but also their colours 0 and in Spanish too! 2MW were introduced to the same story and some were very clever and tried to read the story in Spanish all by themselves!

This week we focus on what Year 1 and Year 6 are doing in their Spanish lessons. 

Year 6 have been working on the verb IR (to go) for several weeks, learning about the 6 'persons' of the verb and how to conjugate ir in the present tense, then applying it to talk about how people travel to places in town. This week they were challenged to form the sentences from memory in the form of the post it challenge! In pairs they were given a grid of 8 trios of images and they had to write the corresponding sentence on a post it to 'claim' that square. The children rose to the challenge, demonstrating that they have the verb IR sussed (although some need to revise their prepositions!) It was good to hear the buzz of collaboration as the pupils shared their knowledge and discussed how to spell words by referring back to their phonic knowledge.

Year 1 are looking at the topic of the Seaside this half term and Spanish lessons are following this theme. 1AG have listened to the story En la playa and read it together as a class. This week there were lots of volunteers to read a page aloud on their own - they were amazing! Señora Stevens made it harder by covering some of the words and 1AG proved that they could still read it! ¡Enhorabuena 1AG!

Here are some of the words in case you'd like to learn them too!

KS2 also had a language themed assembly this week. How are you all doing with your tongue twister?

Here it is so you can have a go!

Camarón, caramelo. Camarón, caramelo.

Camarón, caramelo. Caramelo, camarón.

News of the latest competition that was launched in assembly will be in the next newsletter.

Next week, Y6 are going to 'dig deep' to see how long a sentence they can make using all their previous Spanish learning, Y4 are going to test their phonic knowledge and Y5 are going to 'call' each other.

¡Hasta la vista!

Whitehouse Common Horn Trio

Last night, the Music Service's Brass Department held a concert at St Michael's Church in Boldmere featuring ensembles and bands from schools across the North Birmingham Area. Whitehouse Common was represented by a horn trio made up of Charlotte (Y5) Abigail (Y6) and Sharon (Y6) who played Lean on me by Bill Withers. They played with confidence and skill, and received a huge round of applause at the end. Well done girls! IMG 9219 opt

(A special mention for our ex-pupils Alex and Billy who were supposed to be part of a brass quartet but ended up playing as a duo! The show must go on, and you played really well!)
