Miss Greenwood attended an award ceremony in November for the Primary Science Quality Mark at the Think Tank in Birmingham. There are three levels to this award: bronze, silver and gold. The fantastic science work that we do at Whitehouse Common allowed us to receive the gold award! The award assessors were really impressed with how much we love science, especially investigating. This exciting news has also been published in the Times Educational Supplement.

Following our efforts to reduce our energy usage,
Mrs Hawksworth has contacted our energy supplier directly for an accurate reading of our electricity usage.
We are delighted to report that for :
The Oaks building we have made a reduction of 505 Kilowatt hours
The Acorns building we have made a reduction of 693 Kilowatt hours.
Making a total reduction of 1,198 Kilowatt hours!!
Well done everyone. In addition to making sure that lights are not left on, appliances are turned off when not in use,doors are kept closed to keep the heat in, our new thermostats have allowed the classrooms to control their own temperature.
We shall continue to build on this success to reduce our carbon emmissions and become more environmentally friendly.

We are very excited to be starting off the process of remodelling part of the Oaks building. The current entrance area will be extended, and new rooms built. This will provide us with a brand new entrance and office area, and two new classrooms.
Obviously there will be a small amount of disruption over the coming months, but we are hoping to keep this to a minimum and parents will be notified along the way.
Please see the attached plans to see what the finished build should look like:
