Space Week

As part of our science learning we have celebrated Space Week! Across the school, every class has learnt about space in different ways including: creating craters on the moon, learning about the astronaut Neil Armstrong's life and finding out about Katherine Johnson (who was an amazing NASA mathematician). As we are unable to have Space Camp this winter, Year Five have had a fantastic week taking part in the activities that they would have done such as creating Nebula art and using a special SkyWalk app to look at the constellations. Well done to all of our budding scientists for your curiosity into the incredible topic of space.

Black History Month

BHM Banner

October marks the start of Black History Month in the UK. At Whitehouse Common, we are keen to ensure that our curriculum content reflects our diverse society all year round. We have also been celebrating Black History Month this year by ensuring that meaningful links are made to enhance our current curriculum. Significant individuals we have learned about include – Matthew Henson, Lewis Latimer, June Bacon-Bercey, Louis Armstrong, Josephine Baker, and Katherine Dunham. We have also looked at the diversity of Birmingham during our learning and the impact of immigration. Each class has completed an activity this month to support their learning. Check out your child’s class blog for more!
