Four Oaks Primary 0 -3 Whitehouse Common

The first league game of the season saw a short trip to leafy Four Oaks and the boys took to the pitch looking resplendent in their new kit courtesy of local business Amber Windows .  Mr Melville & Miss Maltby also upgrading their image by sporting the new look tops!   The warm up was hampered by the lack of a football but normal service was resumed as Four Oaks took pity on us and kicked us a ball.

 

Kicking downhill in the first half WHC had the lions share of the chances but the tall Four Oaks keeper refused to be beaten as he saved chances from Alfie, Caius, Josh & Morgan.  Sam and Matty looked solid at the back, working well together to protect Alex’s goal.

 

HT 0 – 0

 

The second half continued with WHC on the offensive and it wasn’t long before the deadlock was broken.   A ball into the box saw Alfie control it and pull it back to an onrushing Morgan who smashed it home from just outside the box.  Owen and Harvey joined the fray and it was soon 2 – 0 as Alfie rifled home into the roof of the net.

 

 Four Oaks kept Alex , Sam and Matty on their toes but failed to breach the WHC defences.

With a couple of minutes to go Josh set Morgan free on the left and with a single touch to get the ball out of his feet he fired across the impressive keeper into the far corner for his second and WHC’s third. 

 

FT 3 – 0.

 

Great first game of the season and hopefully it sets the tone for an enjoyable year!

The Pond

This year, Yr 1 will be studying the pond through the seasons. On our first visit we met one of the many inhabitants. We have also spotted a baby newt basking in the shallows but it was too quick for the camera!

Dear Mrs Hawksworth

Following your recent green flag assessment I am pleased to confirm that you have been awarded your Green Flag.

I would like to congratulate you for all for the time and effort that has been invested in environmental education at your school. Your award is well deserved and reflects the hard work you have put into the programme so far.

The assessor wanted us to pass on some suggestions which may help strengthen your Eco-Schools work in the future:

There were no suggestions from the Assessor.

Assessor's Comments:

"The school and in particular the Eco-Team have a very positive and proactive approach to eco issues and projects that they are involved in. I was particularly impressed with the level of communication that the Eco-Team have with the use of various media to cascade information (newsletters, assemblies, website). They are also very responsive to feedback and seek the ideas and opinions of fellow pupils. They also regularly report to parents and School Governors. They have produced an Eco page on the school website that is very easy to understand but at the same time very informative. During my visit I was made very aware of the enthusiasm and knowledge that the pupils and Eco-Team share for finding out and tackling environmental issues. The Eco-Team is a credit to the school. The school is very well kept and it is evident that there is a great deal of pride in the school, the way it looks and their attitude to the environment and community around them".
