What a fantastic day we had!

 Hundreds of children and adults turned out to battle the blazing heat and sunshine in Sutton Park last Sunday (9th July) to take part in our Fun Run, raising money for their school and the Norman Laud Association. 

Our Whitehouse Common runners looked fantastic in their green t-shirts and it really made a difference to see us all as one a big team - a huge thank you to our sponsors Ian George and Carrie Gibson of Principal Business Solutions, and Ellis and Bridget Boughton of Four Oaks School of Soccor. A big thank you, also, to Daniel from Principal Business Solutions who came along to support us on the day (pictured in the team photo).

Whitehouse Common were extremely well respresented with over 100 entrants - not bad to say it was our first year!

I was incredibly proud of all our children who showed amazing perseverance throughout the very challenging course and gave it that last big push as they sped past me near the finish line (the promise of ice-cream at the end maybe helping a little bit!).

A huge WELL DONE to all the children and adults who took part from all four schools - you were all amazing! 

I am very much looking forward to next year already - I even think we could get to the 200 entrants mark!

These will be available to collect, along with your entrant numbers, from the Summer Fayre on Saturday 1st July.

Fantastic Footballers!

On Thursday 29th June, the Year 5 Boys football team took part in the Wilson Stuart Year 5 Boys Football Tournament at Wynldey Leisure Centre.

It was a fantastic tournament and our team did excellently - making it all the way through four rounds to reachthe FINAL! There was tough competition in the final round against Four Oaks, who ended up winning 1 - 0, but Whitehouse Common proved to be a strong team and played birlliantly.

Whitehouse Common scored in every round we played and only conceded two goals throughout - an amazing achievement. Well done to all the boys that took part - you all contributed to the fnastic result and we are very proud of your representation of our school!

Run 4 School - Get involved!

 

 

 

                                                                

We are luck enough to be invited to take part in the Sutton Coldfield 'Run 4 School' this year, which is organised by Mr Boughton at Four Oaks Primary School. Other schools taking part are The Shrubbery and Little Sutton.

The aim is to raise sponsorship money which will be split between our school and the charity Norman Laud Foundation.

The event takes place on Sunday 9th July at 11am. We have had lots of entries already but we would love to have lots more - we are aiming for at least 100 (Four Oaks have got 300!). This is a very exciting opportunity to have fun, represent our school, get involved in the community and raise some money while we do! Staff will be attending too, so you can have a go at beating their race time!

It is very easy to register - you can do this online at www.run4school.co.uk and we will also have a stall at the School Summer Fayre on 1st July for any last minute sign-ups.The deadline for entering online has been extended to Friday 30th July.

The event is open to pupils, adults, family, friends, siblings - everyone! They don't even have to be a pupil here! You don't have to run the course - walking, jogging, skipping, hopping, or any other means is perfectly fine!

Your entry includes covering all the facilities on the day, water, snacks, a medal, a prize for schools with the most entries, and hopefully a t-shirt.

We are looking for sponsors to help with t-shirts, which Four Oaks have done previously and have been successful in doing this year also. It looks fantastic on the day to see all the entries from one school in special t-shirts. Please contact the school office if you are able to help us with this.

Your child should have brought home all the information you need, but please ask their teacher or the office if you require another copy.

Football tournament at Wyndley

The Y5 (B) football team took part in a WSAS tournament at Wyndley on Thursday afternoon. It was a league format with the winner going through to contend the semifinals against the winner of another groups. The team was unbeaten and didn't concede a single goal but didn't make it out of the group stages unfortunately, finishing second in the group.

However, the team had to play four games as another team was added at the last minute whilst the other three groups had 3 matches, we were the only mixed team, we had no substitutes so all the children played every moment of every match, and every child showed excellent manners throughout, shaking hands with opponents and saying thank you for taking them. They played brilliantly, working as a team and supporting one another throughout, with smiles on their faces and obviously enjoying themselves. 

We are extremely proud of the team and will celebrate their success in assembly next week.
