Howtown Celebration Assembly

User Rating:  / 0

This week Year 6 have been really busy preparing for their class assembly.  We are almost ready (just one more practice to go!)  We will be sharing our experiences of Howtown; the things we enjoyed and things that challenged us!  The scripts have been prepared by the children themselves - with just a little bit of help from the teachers.  At the end we are singing a well known song... can you guess what it might be?

This afternoon year six enjoyed learning how to play tag rugby. They were lucky enough to be taught by Mr. Davis, from Bishop Vesey's Grammar School. Some of the skills that year six learnt included: how to catch the ball, how to throw the ball (backwards) and how to defend. Mr. Davis was extremely impressed with the children's abilities and is looking forward to teaching them again next Monday, Well done year six.

Welcome back to Year 6 following their residential trip to Howtown!  This week we are going to be working hard, getting really 'stuck into' our Literacy, Maths and Reading groups.  We are also learning about micro organisms in science and how there are useful micro organisms as well as bad ones.

The phrase ‘It will be alright on the night’ has never been truer.  After weeks of rehearsals, props and scenery creation and a few sleepless nights worrying if it will all come together we are pleased that our first performance to the rest of the school went well and was enjoyed buy students and staff alike.

Don’t forget that our Grand Show will take place on Thursday 18th July.  We are looking forward to all our visitors and showing off our talents.

Also the Year 6 graduation on Monday 22nd will be another highlight in the lives of our Year 6 students not to be missed!

Aeroplane Visit

User Rating:  / 0

What a treat! At the end of last week the children had the unique opportunity to visit an aeroplane that came to our school.  Don’t worry it didn’t fly in but was rather trailered in.  This special aircraft had foldable wings so that it could fit in through the school gates.  We listened as Roger, the pilot, talked about the plane itself and his experiences flying it.  After some questions, the children were allowed to sit in the plane and feel what it might be like to fly it.  The children were really impressed and a number of them commented that “This is the best thing to have happened in Whitehouse Common. Ever!”

Year six are looking forward to visiting Pizza Express this week, 6SG will be going tomorrow and 6MD on Thursday. We will be walking to Pizza Express in Sutton Coldfield and will be taught how to make a pizza by the Pizza Express chefs as part of our DT work. Everyone will then be able to create their own pizza!

Our Indian Visitors

User Rating:  / 0

Today (Wed 19th June) we officially said good-bye to our two visitors from Bawa Lalvani school in the Punjab region of India.  After an interesting assembly, where some children from our school showed off their dancing skills by doing a ‘Bollywood’ dance routine, the two teachers can into Year 6 to share with us facts and information about their school.

The children asked many interesting questions and both teachers were impressed by the quality and amount of questions the children asked.  All the students sat with rapped attention and we listen to our visitors explain the cultural differences between their school in India and what they had experienced of Whitehouse Common.  It was also interesting to note that even though our two schools and separated by many thousands of miles, that we both share many of the same experiences and values.     

My Money Week

User Rating:  / 0

This week (10th-14th June) we took part in 'My Money Week' and preparation for ‘Business Enterprise’.  This meant that the children has the opportunity to think about how money is made and how is it spent.  We created furry key fobs to sell at the school shop in Sutton Coldfield and presented our ideas to Mr Worth and Mrs Allen in a ‘dragon’s den’ style interview.

We also spent the numeracy lesson designing a Theme Park and then working out how much is would cost to buy rides.  The children had to calculate the running of the park, subtracting daily expenses such as staffing and maintenance from entrance fees and money made at the shop and other facilities.  From this the children could see if they would have made a profit and if they could reinvest into their park for a second season.  Needless to say the children were all enthused by this project and learned much from it.
