Cross country in a downpour!

cross countryIn March the finals of the Wilson Stuart Active Schools Cross country were held in Sutton Park. Our team were raring to go and some had even done secret recces to make sure that they were totally prepared.

However, nothing could have prepared them for the conditions unless they'd decided to run in an Arctic storm. As teams began to arrive in the Park, the temperature dropped and the rain began to fall. Not just a drizzle but big ploppy drops. However, Whitehouse Common pupils are resourceful, reflective and resilient and were not to be put off by the rain. Unfortunately some of the boys team didn't arrive in time for the start so couldn't run but they demonstrated our fourth R - relationships - as they got as wet as the runners, cheering their teammates to the finish in the boys and girls races. 

Joe gallantly fought to go one better this time than his 2nd place at BVGS, leading for the first lap and a half before his nemesis overtook and took the win with Joe just behind. It was lovely to see the two boys at the end, shaking hands and showing great sportsmanship by congratulating each other on a good battle. Matthew and Salah supported Joe's performance with 25th and 48th places. And a special mention goes to Ethan who came to the park expecting to watch his sister Isabella running but ended up running himself. He set out 30 seconds after everyone else with not a hope of winning but kept running right to the end.

 Amy did a brilliant job in the girls race, coming 11th as the rain fell harder still, and Isabell, Aliya, Laila and Isabella all bettered their previous placings with 33rd, 34th, 62nd and 63rd.

Sra. Stevens could not have been more proud of everyone who took part.The team photo was a very rushed affair (as the iPad was getting rather wet and threatening to switch off) and is missing several runners as they'd (wisely) gone to find shelter. Thank you to all the parents and siblings who came to watch too and got equally soaked. Congratulations to everyone who ran - and all the other members of the squad who have run this year - for all for their hard work, for their great team spirit, their enthusiasm and adaptability, and for never giving up. Roll on next year; Y4 are already champing at the bit wanting to run!

A day at university...

On Friday 31st March, Mrs McIntosh and Mr Wheeler took a group of 14 pupils to Birmingham City University (BCU). The aim of the day was around raising aspirations and exploring the opportunities available in further education. BCU are one of our Learning Trust partners, who we collaborate closely with regarding the program for teacher training.

Three university Tutors and two Science Team members from the school of education provided children with a science lesson full of pops, fizzes and bangs. Following this, there was a creative art lesson where the children created 3D models of themselves as University students of the future. The chef in Baker café also took part in this day by providing the children with a special menu so that they could fully enjoy the experience of being a student in Baker Café at lunchtime.

Finally, the children then attended an exciting DT/Computing lesson where they used Lego and a computer programme together to create moving robotics.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the day. They were engaged, enthused and motivated throughout the whole day and began to see the possibilities of their future.

We were made extremely welcome. All the lecturers made a huge amount of effort to prepare exciting sessions for us.  A great day had be all.

Birmingham Royal Ballet Visit

Speight Ballet resize

Our children from Year 1 and Year 3 have been fortunate enough to work with visiting members of the Birmingham Royal Ballet in four different dance workshops.

Visiting Dance Artist Jenny Murphy and Pianist Andrew Kristy lead the sessions based on the company's current production of 'Coppelia'. The children found out all about the characters from the ballet and were able to have a go at taking on the role of the clockwork doll, magician and old man. The pupils created their own performances to share at the end of the workshop.

Mrs Duckers, Mrs Slassor, Mrs Charles, Mrs Edwards and Mr Worth all enjoyed participating in the workshops with several members of staff taking the opportunity to try on a beautiful costume from the company's production of 'Sleeping Beauty'!

RED NOSE DAY 2017

To understand a little bit more about Red Nose Day, Year 5 watched a video about how Comic Relief has changed the life of a boy in Africa. We were inspired to write emotive diary entries, empathising with him and making a point about how all donations to Comic Relief can make a huge difference to many people's lives (both in the UK and Africa).

5MM would like to share our work with you, in the hope that it helps to raise awareness and may inspire you to go and do something funny for money! Remember - make your laugh matter!
