New Schools Join the Learning Trust for Excellence

LTE Logo

As you are aware, our school is part of the Learning Trust for Excellence (LTE), a collaboration of 7 local schools who work together, share good practice and develop opportunities for our staff and children. Following the success of the Trust and the significant impact it has had on improving teaching and learning in our schools, it will be expanding to work with more schools in our community. The LTE is delighted to announce that the following local schools will be joining the Trust this summer:

 

  • Court Farm Primary
  • The Deanery Church of England Primary
  • Maney Hill Primary
  • Wylde Green Primary

 

The schools will engage in all the collaborative opportunities and activities for a year in the first instance. All the schools have worked together previously as part of the wider group of Sutton Coldfield primaries so we are very much looking forward to the exciting opportunities this expansion will bring, welcoming new colleagues and learning from each other.

Green Kids - eTwinning project

childrenGreen optAs we approach the end of the school year, our eTwinning projects are drawing to a close too, particularly as many schools across Europe have already broken up for the summer!

At Christmas we reported that we had created and exchanged Christmas cards with schools involved in the Green Kids project (as well as others as part of a Christmas card project) However, the main thrust of the project was around safeguarding our environment so we really should report on what we're been doing in collaboration with schools in Spain, Italy, Turkey, Serbia, France and Greece. 

The project:

Green Kid´s a super hero who tries to save the Earth. He´ll teach children how to be Green Kids. 

The aims of the project are:
1. To create awareness about environmental issues and actions that can be taken for its protection.
2. To improve digital and communicative skills.
3. To promote creativity.

During the project schools firstly designed and voted on a Green Kid logo. then they considered an aspect of the environment each month, creating a collaborative storybook on each topic including trees, endangered species, pollution and the problem of plastic. Each school wrote their own story and they were all collated in one online storybook via Storyjumper. Alongside this, pupils from each school found out about the topics and shared their ideas on the Twinspace. You can see it here. We also thought about our role in the future of our world and predicted what would happen if we take care of it.

All the work that we've done at Whitehouse Common on each of the themes (and others!) has been uploaded to the Padlet you can view by clicking here, or by reading the QR code below with a mobile device. I'm sure you'll agree that the children of WCPS know plenty about their role in our world and that the future is safe in their hands!

Area sports resize

Well done, to all the children from KS2 that represented the school yesterday at the Area Sports Athletics Competition. Mrs Cowdery, Mrs Clarke and Mrs Edwards took 37 children from across the school to participate in a variety of track and field events. The children were a real credit to the school with impeccable behaviour all afternoon. They performed brilliantly in their events and were rewarded with the runners up trophy for Field events. Well done all!

Languages Celebration Assembly

weallsmile

On Thursday afternoon, KS2 gathered in the Oaks Hall to celebrate Languages. 28 children bravely volunteered to share their language skills with their peers as we were treated to songs in French, Spanish and Makaton, a poem in Polish, a German tongue twister, a joke in Latin and children introduced themselves in Burmese, Sinhala, Tamil, Turkish, Punjabi, Italian, Hindi and French. The assembly concluded with the poem about languages below that was written especially for the occasion by S-L in Y4. 

It was lovely to see the children celebrating languages that they know and love, whether because they speak them on a daily basis or know them via family, holidays or clubs. It was also good to consider the importance of communciation, through languages both spoken and signed, to ensure inclusion and a sense of belonging. 

Thank you to all those who participated.

In case you can't read the poem:
LANGUAGES

There are so many languages; I can't count there's so much.

There's Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, African and Dutch.

There are so many languages 

In this world

But very few of them have I been told.

There's Spanish and French

I'm sure,

And Dutch, Maori and many more.

There are so many languages, every one is unique.

There are so many languages about which we can all speak.
