Wow! Whitehouse Common Primary School are extremely proud to have been awarded the Sutton Coldfield Sports Awards 2015 - Aspire Trophy - Primary School of the Year. The prestigious event recognizes and celebrates the sporting achievements of schools and clubs from across the local area. 

To be nominated for the award the school needed to show that gives its’ pupils a wide range of activities to participate in, within a high quality physical education programme. We needed to prove we that engage our pupils in a variety of extra-curricular sport. (The school should show commitment to School-Club links). Children are able to access high quality competitive opportunities at all levels of competition (Level 1 – Intra school, Level 2 – Inter school). WHC shows a commitment to engaging the least active students in sport and physical activity and ensures that KS1 students have high quality PE lessons to ensure they are physically literate by seven years old.

Mr Melville attended the awards ceremony last Friday evening at Sutton Town Hall. Look out for us in the Sutton Coldfield Observer for more details about the event and the winners of the other categories.

Mad Science Assembly Today

Today we were lucky enough to have a Mad Science assembly. We saw some fantastic experiments and even took part in some too! It made us curious about science and helped us to question why certain things happen.

There will be a Mad Science Club on Tuesdays 3.30-4.30 for year 4 children starting one February 9th for 6 weeks. The year four children will have been given a letter about this today. For anymore information please ask at the office.

Lo que aprendimos esta semana (Primavera 4)

Let's start this week with some news from Reception. These two smiling 'chicas' were sent to show their work to Señora Stevens on Tuesday. She was very pleased to see them and 2HD gave them a round of applause for such beautiful colouring of 'el arco iris'. ¡Bien hecho!

2HD clapped out the names of animals in Spanish this week whilst 2MW made an animal symphony by clapping the rhythm of the Spanish animal names whilst saying them. They did hope that the other classes weren't disturbed by their enthusiasm! And staying in FKS and KS1, Señora Stevens was in charge of assembly on Tuesday and recruited some helpers to tell the story of El Nabo Enorme. Unfortunately there are no photographs but Daisy did an excellent job as 'el nabo enorme' who finally popped out of the ground, but only when pulled by el abuelo, la abuela, Marisol, el perro, el gato, el ratón y la araña!

In KS2, Year 3 opened their class assemblies with a Spanish song about friends, and a piece of Y3 Spanish work made it onto the Excellence Board. Can you find it here? Year 4 continued to work on the date, this week talking about the date of their birthday as well as various Saint's Days.

5SG and 5MA continued to grapple with the time. They completed a Tarsia through which they discovered that to say minutes past the hour you use 'y' meaning and, and to say minutes to the hour you sue 'menos' which means minus. The two teams who completed their Tarsia first are pictured here.

And year 6, despite having quite a short lesson this week, managed to produce some lovely work on what you can and can't do in the town. I particularly liked Amelie's colour coordinated work which uses conjunctions and negatives, and the clever use of an adjective in the piece of work on the left makes it stand out from the rest. 

However, there were so many excellent ideas that here are some further examples!

Make sure that you've read the news about the OneThirdStories competition that was published earlier this week, and also the news about the eTwinning tree story writing competition. Señora Stevens has already received a lovely story from Ruby but would love to receive lots more. They will all be shared with the partner schools so even if your story is not the one chosen to be written in the travelling book, it will be read all over Europe!
