Today, children from Year 2, performed in an annual music concert at Sutton Town Hall. Children sang for a sold out crowd! The first choir sang songs from the musicals and the second choir performed a piece entitled 'The Toyshop'. All the children sang beautifully and behaved well back stage. Well done Year 2!

January has seen the Whitehouse Common Football Team begin competing on a bigger stage in the Birmingham Primary School Association's competitions. Normally WHC compete within the Sutton District league, however due to our success at the start of this season we have been nominated (alongside Walmley Juniors) to represent the Sutton Coldfield district.
At the beginning of January the boy's took part in a weekend competition and on Tuesday of this week the boy's played in their first game for the H.M.S Birmingham Shield knock out tournament.
See below two reports about the events by official WHC team reporter -Mr Davage (Morgan's Dad).
West Midlands County Primary Schools Football Tournament And Another Final!
On the Saturday morning of the 10th January, 10 boys from Year 5 and 6 took centre stage at Wolverhampton Wanderers training ground as the Whitehouse Common Football team represented Sutton Coldfield against Primary schools from all over the Midlands.
Three group games saw WHC finishing top of the group with a 0-0 draw against St Lawrence from Kings Norton with Tom making his WHC debut , a 1-1 draw against Fairhaven from Dudley with Marcus Davis netting after a good ball in from Morgan and a 2-1 win against Wheeler’s Lane from South Birmingham with a super strike from Josh R and once again Morgan setting Marcus free for him to slide home the winner .
After a brief delay for a hailstorm of almost biblical proportions WHC lined up for a semi-final against Oldswinford from Halesowen and an early goal from Alfie following some good pressing from Josh was enough to see a 1-0 victory with Sam clearing off the line, a great save from Alex and Matty and Louie helping to ensure we kept a clean sheet.
The final saw us meet Fairhaven again with them having beaten Perry Beeches from Aston in their semi-final - despite WHC having the better of the first half with Caius going close we couldn’t get the all-important first goal. This fell to Fairhaven with a well worked free kick and proved to be the difference which meant a second tournament final loss but the boys should be proud of how well they played and how well they represented WHC and Sutton Coldfield.

WHC 6 Woodhouse Primary Academy 2
The first round of the 9 aside Birmingham Primary Schools Cup saw WHC drawn against Woodhouse Academy from Quinton.
After a nervous wait of around 45 minutes the Woodhouse minibus rolled into the WHC car park to cheers from the boys (and parents) who were fearing a no show!
Kicking down the slope in the first half WHC made the most of the advantage and soon took the lead with a back post header from Morgan 1- 0. Alfie soon made it two bundling the ball in after a parried strike from Caius 2-0. WHC continued to have the bulk of the play and the opportunities and restricted Woodhouse to a single strike on goal which was well tipped over from Alex. Caius then made it 3-0 with a strike into the bottom corner.
Half Time 3 – 0
The second half saw Woodhouse coming out with renewed determination and started to create some chances but WHC wrestled control back and furthered their lead through a Josh penalty and good goals from Owen and Louie. Woodhouse pulled 2 goals back after the WHC defence got a bit excited and decided to join the attack but deserved something for the effort they put in during the game.
A good performance on a tight pitch for 9 aside and on we go to the next round!
Full Time 6 - 2
