Run 4 School - Photos & Finishing Positions


We have some fantastic photos from the official photographer from the race - please use the link below to access these:

I'm sure many of you will be happy to know that we have also been sent the finishing positions! Please [click here] to see this. Please note that these were recorded manually by volunteers and, unfortunately, some race numbers were not visible to be recorded. This is something that is being looked into developing for next year, depending on entry numbers.

Thank you for your support and, once again, Well done!

A huge thank you to Ellis and Bridget Boughton who were our Race Directors and organised the event!

What a fantastic day we had!

 Hundreds of children and adults turned out to battle the blazing heat and sunshine in Sutton Park last Sunday (9th July) to take part in our Fun Run, raising money for their school and the Norman Laud Association. 

Our Whitehouse Common runners looked fantastic in their green t-shirts and it really made a difference to see us all as one a big team - a huge thank you to our sponsors Ian George and Carrie Gibson of Principal Business Solutions, and Ellis and Bridget Boughton of Four Oaks School of Soccor. A big thank you, also, to Daniel from Principal Business Solutions who came along to support us on the day (pictured in the team photo).

Whitehouse Common were extremely well respresented with over 100 entrants - not bad to say it was our first year!

I was incredibly proud of all our children who showed amazing perseverance throughout the very challenging course and gave it that last big push as they sped past me near the finish line (the promise of ice-cream at the end maybe helping a little bit!).

A huge WELL DONE to all the children and adults who took part from all four schools - you were all amazing! 

I am very much looking forward to next year already - I even think we could get to the 200 entrants mark!

We Will Rock You!

A huge well done to Year 6 for all their hard work preparing for our production. Go for it tonight and tomorrow kids, show them what you're made of! Miss Jonhston and I are very proud of you.

Microorganism surprises!

Year 5 have been lucky enough to have visitng Science Teachers from Arthur Terry who brought along some microscopes for us to explore microorganisms with. In the first session, we looked at different plates containing things like tea bags, hair, intestine and kidneys. We then took swabs of our hands and transferred them onto special jelly in petri dishes, which we left for a week.

Once the week was up, we looked back at what had grown on our petri dishes - it was very interesting! We observed differnt types of growth and did some research to find out why they had certain similarities and differences.

 

 

 

It was very interesting, and we can certainly say that we have remembered the importance of washing our hands regularly!

 

Excellent Work (Week Beginning 3/7/17)

Celebrating technology in language learning

Señora Stevens is often invited to speak at conferences about language learning and international work in primary schools, and always enjoys sharing what we do at Whitehouse Common Primary. Last week she was in Warrington delivering a keynote about the use of technology to engage and enhance primary language teaching and learning. Before she went, she challenged Y3 and Y6 to create work that she could share using a number of apps and websites.

Year 3 used Pic Collage on the iPads to create posters giving advice in Spanish about healthy eating, and saved them to a Padlet so that we could share them. There were some excelelnt posters created, especially as some pupils only had 20 minutes as they had a swimming lesson. You can see them all here and well done to Lucy and Logan (3CC) and Lily and Darcy (3MW) who featured in Señora Stevens' presentation.

 

6lc adobe6LC on the other hand were challenged to use Adobe Spark Video to create mini movies using the silly sentences that they had written the previous week, practising their grammar as well as writing and speaking skills. As an added challenge, they used Autodraw, which is a web tool that changes your drawings into copyright free icons/clipart that can be used freely in such projects. (You can find out more about AutoDraw here) There were some very amusing mini movies created; Señora Stevens particularly enjoyed the ones that showed imagination!

We're really proud of the work that our pupils do in languages and international links, and it's great to share and celebrate their efforts and achievements with others on a national (and sometimes even international!) stage!
