Cross country at Bishop Veseys

Tonight the year 5 and 6 cross country team took part in the 2nd race of the season at Bishop Veseys. On a beautiful sunny evening, the team were very excited as they walked across the Vesey field down to the start by the cricket pavillion. 

boys bvgsThe boys' race was first. The start is always very cramped and unfortunately a couple of our runners got tripped and fell. However, they recovered and the whole team ran with determination and 100% effort. Our leading runner was Ben H who finished 23rd;  Joe, Lucas and Myles finished in a bunch in 60th, 65th and 66th.

As the boys were finishing, the girls set off. Chasing the 'hare' they sped around the fields. The boys joined Señora Stevens to encourage the girls as they rounded the corner and circled the tennis courts. Isabell ran incredibly, finishing 9th, closely followed by Aliya in 21st, and Mariah and Laila in 33rd and 34th. 

Well done to everyone who ran for your excellent cooperation and wonderful team spirit. Thanks too got to the parents who supported the team, and to the team's siblings who picked up lots of conkers for Reception!

The next race is in March so time for some training before then!

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

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.

Excellent Work (Week Beginning 18/9/17)

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.
