Run 4 School money - final plea!

We have been very succesful so far in receiving a great amount of sponsorship money from children who took part in the Run 4 School event, however we are aware that not all children have been able to bring theirs in yet. 

We ask that you please do this as soon as possible, as we are in the process of final counts and contacting the Norman Laud representative to award our contribution to their wonderful organisation.

A reminder that, as promised, there will also be a reward for the individual child and class with the most sponsorship.

Thank you again for your support and participation in this fantastic event.

We look forward to finding out what the children would like to invest the sponsorship money in to improve our sporting ethos and opportunities further!

A final thank you to our T-shirt sponsors: Four Oaks School of Soccor and Principal Business Solutions

Excellent Work (Week Beginning 25/9/17)

European Day of Languages 2017

edl quotations

In 2001, the Council of Europe and the European Commission declared 26th September the European Day of Languages: a day to celebrate linguistic diversity; to raise awareness of the languages used in Europe; to promote cultural and linguistic diversity; and to encourage life-long language learning. 

At Whitehouse Common every day is a 'Day of Languages' as we discover more about the world around us, noticing different languages written on food packets and clothes labels, finding out about the language and culture of our friends and families, and celebrating how great it is that we're not all the same but we're all special.

Howtown 2017 Day Four

We've had a wonderful day full of even more adventures, many of which got us very wet!

Miss Greenwood's group went for a walk into the forest where they built dens and had hot chocolate. The children then jumped off a crag and into Ullswater,  where there were three layers of challenging heights to conquer. After this they canoed back to the center.

Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Rowney's groups have been gorge walking in deep waterfalls, some children named this area 'The Jacuzzi' and then enjoyed cliff jumping into the lake, a fantastic time was had by all.

Mrs. Cowdery's group canoed across the Lake and then also jumped off the cliff.. Mrs. Brady's group walked to Pooley Bridge and returned on the steamer - the children even had the opportunity to drive it! They discussed our year group poet, Wordsworth, and saw the inspirational sites for his poem, I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud . There was a stone bench engraved with some of his poetry.

We are extremely proud of the achievements of every child during our trip. They've exceeded their own (and our) expectations,moving out of their comfort zone on several occasions. We are now off to join the children for their final evening activities of camp fires, toasting marshmallows and reflecting on the accomplishments.

Cross country at Bishop Walsh 19.09.17

teamOn Tuesday the cross country season kicked off at Bishop Walsh where the first race of the WSAS Cross Country League took place. After a huge number of children trying out last week, a squad of 8 boys and 8 girls was picked. As usual, this coincided with Year 6 being at Howtown but this gave an opportunity for our new Year 5s to show us their talents.

It was a lovely evening and conditions were excellent. Wearing our new school Tshirts and big smiles, our team set off racing around the playing fields at Bishop Walsh. 

The boys ran first then, as they reached the 3/4 point, the girls started. Señora Stevens was torn between shouting encouragement and organising but managed to do both, and the races went well. Every one of our team finished strongly, and those that had finished shouted encouragement at their teammates, some even turning round and cheering when they'd only just finished and were still short of breath. Particularly well done to Jalen, Ben and Joe who finished 10th, 12th and 39th respectively, and Olivia, Mariah and Kirstie who finished 25th 26th and 42nd in their race. 

Señora Stevens was very proud of all of them and was especially pleased by the excellent attitude and good manners they showed to other adults and their fellow competitors. They were excellent ambassadors for Whitehouse Common. Year 6 - you're going to have to work hard to regain your places on the team!

Howtown 2017 Day Three

Another fantastic adventure was had by all.

Mrs. Brady's group went on a hill walk, they saw stunning views from the climb to the top of the 149 ascent. They scaled sheer rock faces and traversed along ridges - the children's perseverance was fantastic and they walked 4km in total. Miss Greenwood's group went gorge walking; the children's teamwork skills were amazing. They really encouraged one another and used the 'Roman handshake' to help each other up the waterfall. After this, the children went in a speed boat to a cliff and jumped off into the lake.

A hill walk was completed by both Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Rowney's groups to Pooley Bridge and Glenridding. The children loved playing in the waterfalls and the meandering streams along the journey. Positive comments were made by the public about how extremely well behaved the children were on their return visit to the center on the steamer boat.

Mrs. Cowdery's group scrambled up a dry gorge using harnesses and ropes. They spotted deer in the distance - David Attenborough eat your heart out! Lunch was eaten whilst admiring the breath taking views, before descending into Sandwick.

We have been very lucky with the weather, and so far escaping the rain! The children are enjoying their evening activities of night-line and orienteering. We are excited for even more fun tomorrow.
