Let's go cultural - Romans and Carthaginians

final logoLet's Go Cultural! is all about sharing our own culture and learning about the culture of our partner schools, enjoying new experiences and celebrating our similarities and differences.

The Festival of the Romans and Carthaginians happens in Cartagena every September and commemorates the 2nd Punic Wars over 2200 years ago! (You can find out more here.)

During the meeting in Cartagena, the children of CEP Antonio de Ulloa shared their work on the festival and staged a procession for the visitors dressed as Romans and Carthaginians complete with music and drumming! 

Here's a video to give you a taste!

 

 

Let's go cultural - Welcome to Cartagena!

Our Spanish partners have set the bar high!

Whitehouse Common - we're the next hosts so we need to match and even better this! 

 

 

Thank you - Gracias - Danke - υχαpιστώ - Teşekkür ederiz

open eveThank you to all those who popped into the Think Tank last Tuesday during Parents' Evening to find out about our Erasmus+ project. It was lovely to meet parents and be able to share details of Let's Go Cultural! including plans for the upcoming visit of our partners to Whitehouse Common. It was also great to hear that children have been going home and talking about our partners in Spain, Greece, Turkey and Austria, and to share some videos from the first transnational meeting held in Cartagena. 

Apologies that the opportunity was not offered on Wednesday as well; unfortunately Señora Stevens is elsewhere on Wednesdays. In the following posts, you can see the videos that were shared. Additonally, should you want to ask questions and/or find out more, Señora Stevens is usually happy to talk to you before or after school on Tuesdays or Thursdays, or via a message to the school office.

Reading for Pleasure

At Whitehouse Common Primary School, we firmly believe in the power of reading and how much joy getting stuck in to a good book can bring.

dr seuss quote

We promote reading for pleasure in a number of ways: through our Book Award Challenge; accessing our well-resourced library each week; time in the day to hear stories read by the staff; sharing the wonderful story sacks the PTA team have created and through the reading corner areas in class, which children can access to enjoy reading in. 

Here are some of our wonderful book corners:

Singing and Sports in Y6

The children have been raising the roof with some fabulous singing this week; we've been learning some songs from Matilda the Musical. The children have learned the words from a musical libretto and been learning to recognise musical notation as well as singing in a three-part arrangement.

We wlecomed some specialist coaching this week from Sutton Town Netball Club. They will continue to support with some netball coaching for the girls over the next 6 weeks. We are really lucky to receive this opportunity, and we've been really pleased to hear that the girls have enjoyed it so far!
