Cruising Confidently in the Cross Country

On the 22nd September our year 6 cross country team embarked upon a monumentous challenge...the Bishop Walsh circuit. Not only is this a difficult circuit but our efforts were made even more impressive when it is noted that our team was made up purely with year 5 pupills due to our year 6's being away at Howtown. What a job they did! With the the parents and Mrs Stevens cheering them on, the pupils ran approximately one and half miles with two of our pupils coming in the top 20 and one of our pupils coming in the top 10!

All of the children finished the race with heads held high. Well done to all the pupils who entered, you all did fabulously. A special mention to Joe who came a terrific 10th and Matthew who came a fabulous 20th out of all the schools in the local area. 

Well done all!

Our cross country team:

Joe, Matthew, Joshua, Oliver, Zeb, Kyan, Archie, Rohan, Libby, Sadie, and Amy. 

Birmingham School Games

26 children from year 6 were chosen to compete in three different events at the Birmingham School Games on Friday 10th July, due to winning competitions within Sutton Coldfield throughout the year.

8 children took part in the mega fest rugby event and used their rugby skills and teamwork to challenge other schools from various areas of the city. The tag rugby team made it into the top ten schools in the city from 350 schools! In the morning of the games they won three matches and drew two which led them to be in the top five teams in the afternoon. The children played brilliantly and came fourth overall.

The mixed rounders team also did extremely well and came first - please see the article below for more details.

We were incredibly proud of how the children conducted themselves and represented Whitehouse Common. Well done year six, you are a credit to our school.


Birmingham Rounders Champions

On Friday 10th July WCPS mixed rounders team took part in the Birmingham School Games at King Edwards School. Their invitation to the games came from winning the Sutton Schools mixed rounders competition in May. The top ten schools from across the city spent the day competing against each other.

Whitehouse Common played their first game against Timberly and won with a score of 2 1/2 to 9 1/2 rounders. The following scores led the children to remain undefeated:

Woodhouse 1 WCPS 10 1/2

WCPS played against Mosely in the semi final winning 8 to 4 rounders. The final saw the children competiting against James Watt for the second time resulting in a win by 6 rounders to a half!

Well done to all of the children involved.
