Year 5 Debate competition

Last week, four lucky Year 5 children had the fantastic opportunity to attend a debating competition at Bishop Vesey. We had a great morning and the children were very impressive with their debating skills! They worked hard to prepare for the debates and showed excellent maturity during participation - a credit to our school! 

Whitehouse Common Horn Trio

Last night, the Music Service's Brass Department held a concert at St Michael's Church in Boldmere featuring ensembles and bands from schools across the North Birmingham Area. Whitehouse Common was represented by a horn trio made up of Charlotte (Y5) Abigail (Y6) and Sharon (Y6) who played Lean on me by Bill Withers. They played with confidence and skill, and received a huge round of applause at the end. Well done girls! IMG 9219 opt

(A special mention for our ex-pupils Alex and Billy who were supposed to be part of a brass quartet but ended up playing as a duo! The show must go on, and you played really well!)

Science Award

Miss Greenwood attended an award ceremony in November for the Primary Science Quality Mark at the Think Tank in Birmingham. There are three levels to this award: bronze, silver and gold. The fantastic science work that we do at Whitehouse Common allowed us to receive the gold award! The award assessors were really impressed with how much we love science, especially investigating. This exciting news has also been published in the Times Educational Supplement.

Oaks Building Remodelling

extension planWe are very excited to be starting off the process of remodelling part of the Oaks building. The current entrance area will be extended, and new rooms built. This will provide us with a brand new entrance and office area, and two new classrooms.

Obviously there will be a small amount of disruption over the coming months, but we are hoping to keep this to a minimum and parents will be notified along the way.

Please see the attached plans to see what the finished build should look like:

European Day of Languages

Hello! Bonjour! Buongiorno! Guten Tag! Kalimera!

Today is European Day of Languages. This is a day celebrated across Europe on which people celebrate linguistic diversity and think about language learning. This week, each class has chosen a language and had a go at learning some words and phrases in that language. Yesterday we came together on special assemblies to share what we had discovered. We were treated to posters, pictures and photographs as well as songs and demonstrations of how to speak French, German, Italian and Greek. The children all enjoyed the assemblies includingLet it go’ in 25 languages! We even discovered that animals speak different languages too thanks to a very clever goldfish, and some dogs!

Healthy Lifestyles Week

The whole school has had a fabulous Health Week and enjoyed a variety of special activities to help them learn about the importance of staying healthy. The Life Caravan has been on site for three days and the children have engaged in activities dealing with various health related topics.

We were also very fortunate to receive a generous donation of exotic fruits including: kiwi, sharon fruit, lychee, mango and papaya from Sainsbury's in Mere Green. The children have used these fruits in their classrooms for art activities and, of course, tasting! Thank you Sainsbury's!
We are sure that all of the children have learned a lot and had a great week.

Singing Playgrounds

A group of children from Key Stage 2 shared a very special assembly with the infants this week - explaining to them what 'Singing Playgrounds' is all about.  They performed some playground songs and games (similar to traditional playground games) so that the infants could see what fun can be had when playing singing games at playtimes.  The children are now really looking forward to joining the infants on Mondays and Thursdays to teach them the songs and games.
