Message from Mrs Hall

We are continuing to finalise arrangements for next year and our two assistant headteachers, Mrs Wassermeyer and Miss Siddall will have slightly different roles next year. They will leading teaching, learning and assessment across the school and covering one day a week in some classes. We will also be welcoming Mr Jordan, a specialist PE Teacher, to Whitehouse.  He will be organising lots of new clubs and teams that we are all very excited about. If you have any suggestions about new clubs that you would like to see, please let us know.

 

Early Years and Key Stage 1 - Stars of the Week

The ‘Stars’ last week were: Lions – Erin Chisnall, Elephants – Nikolai Velkov, Giraffes – Meyah Ransome-Patterson, Foxes – James Hasnip, Hedgehogs – Henry Bacon, and Squirrels – Jaymee Buffery. The winner of the EYFS attendance trophy was Starfish.  Well done!

 

Key Stage 2 - Wonderful Week Awards

The ‘Wonderful Week Awards’ were given to: Cobras – Jessica Mallett and Sam Chenery, Dragons – Jessica Middlemiss and Wiktoria Hojka, Frogs – Hayden Steward and Kaidon Mitchell, Owls – Reuben Day and Jace Wright, Rabbits – Che Ruiz and Lennon Baldwin, Jaguars – Jayden Crack and Billy Davies, Pandas – Maggie Toddington and Logan Roberts, Monkeys – Amy Willis and Ellesha Potter, Toucans – Ryan Magor and Komala Cook. Also, congratulations to Sam Chenery who was the overall winner and was given a £5 book token.

 

Attendance

The classes with the best attendance last week were Lions and Toucans with 99.3%.  Well done!

 

EYFS Sports Day

We are sorry that the EYFS Sports Day had to be cancelled this week.  The decision was taken after looking at how wet the ground was and we felt it wouldn’t be safe for the children to run on it without slipping.  We are excited to confirm that it will go ahead next Wednesday at the same times.  We hope parents will still be able to come along and join us.

 

Dinner Money / Breakfast Club Debt

The debt carried in school remains too high despite regular reminders from office staff.  A reminder that ALL debt must be cleared before the end of term.  Any parent owing more than one week for dinners and/or breakfast club will not be able to have any more school dinners and/or attend breakfast club with immediate effect until the debt is cleared in full.  We appreciate your co-operation in this matter.  Please come in and speak to a member of the office team if you have any queries or are concerned about this.

 

 

Girls Football Team

As the season drew to a close the girls football team had two games to play in just three days!  The home game against Ravenswood Primary was a tough and well-fought game which ended in a 1-0 win to us, thanks to a great goal scored by Georgia.  The second match was away to Hillside Primary.  The girls were in good spirits, looking forward to their final match. Great passing, forward thinking and super teamwork resulted in a fabulous 4-0 win with Tilly scoring a hat-trick and Morgan adding to the total.  This was by far the best the girls had played all season.   Mrs Reddington, coach to the team, has praised the girls for their great commitment, hard work and perseverance throughout the season.  The team finished in 3rd place in the Medium Schools League!  A wonderful achievement – well done girls!  Also a big thank you to parents/carers for their support throughout.

 

Attendance

We have just one more week at school for this academic year, but please can we remind you if your child is unwell, it is still very important that you call the school and let us know they will not be in and the reason why.   If we don’t hear from you Mrs Poulter, our Attendance Officer, will follow this up.  It is a vital step we must take every day to ensure the safety of our children. 

 

Drop –In Parents’ Evening

Thank you for returning the reply slips from your child’s report. We have received some lovely comments about the quality of teaching and the support provided.  If you have a query about any aspect of your child’s report, class teachers will be available on Monday after school, in the Marlow road hall.

 

PE Kit

There seems to be a little confusion about the PE kit your child should be wearing in school.  To confirm, the kit consists of black shorts and a plain red t-shirt. In the cold weather black tracksuit bottoms can also be worn and a black or grey jumper.  Children are also expected to wear the correct footwear, either plimsolls or trainers.  Please ensure that these are in place for next year.

It was lovely to meet all our new children on Wednesday and Thursday this week.  They all seemed very excited to be joining our great school.  Thank you for your support at these meetings.  In September, we will have over 560 children at Whitehouse and by 2019 over 600!  We are always happy to meet parents to discuss any issues but please remember to book an appointment at the school office so that we can dedicate the correct amount of time.  Our two move up mornings were also very successful and the children really enjoyed meeting their new teachers.

The ‘Stars’ last week were: Dolphins – Kyla-Marie Allen, Turtles – James Joseph Ellis, Puffins – Evie Pipe and Alysha Crane, Seahorses – Isla Mitchell and Max Newman, Starfish – Kyann Cole and Chiara Gajdos, Lions – Alissa Davies, Elephants – Tayfun Poulton, Giraffes – Hasan Mutlu, Foxes – Daisee Death, Hedgehogs – Archie Gooding, and Squirrels – McKenzie Walker.

Library News

The Key Stage 1 library will not be open after school on Tuesdays for the last two weeks of term.  We plan to try to get all books back into the libraries by the end of this week.  Please have a look around at home in case you have any which have not been returned.  Thank you for supporting our libraries and your children’s reading.  It was good to see parents coming in after school on Tuesdays to read with their children and help them choose new books.  We will continue to run these sessions in the new school year and hope to see more of you.  Key Stage 2 children will continue to have library sessions at lunchtimes.

 

Swearing

Please note we ask all adults to refrain from swearing anywhere on the school site.  This will not be tolerated and you may be asked to leave.

 

Enquiry Based Curriculum

Have you had a look at the school website recently (www.whcps.org)?  You will find lots of very useful information that can help you.  There is also a lot of information about our enquiry based curriculum and about the things your child is being taught and the ways we learn at Whitehouse.  Please follow this link to view this information: http://www.whcps.org/our-enquiry-based-curriculum/

 

PE Kit

There seems to be a little confusion about the PE kit your child should be wearing in school.  To confirm, the kit consists of black shorts and a plain red t-shirt. In the cold weather black tracksuit bottoms can also be worn and a black or grey jumper.  Children are also expected to wear the correct footwear, either plimsolls or trainers.  The correct footwear is essential to prevent your child being injured.  Thank you for your assistance in this matter.  We suggest PE kits are brought into school in a bag and left on your child’s peg so they are available when needed.

 

Dinner Money / Breakfast Club Debt

The debt carried in school remains too high despite regular chasing from office staff.  A text will be sent out on Monday to any parent with money owing.  It is important that all debt is cleared by the end of term.  Any parent owing more than one week for dinners and/or breakfast club will not be able to have any more school dinners and/or attend breakfast club with immediate effect until the debt is fully cleared.  We appreciate your co-operation in this matter.  Please come in and speak to a member of the office team if you have any queries or are concerned about this.

 

Year 6 Production

We still have some tickets left for our Year 6 production ‘Robin Hood and the Sherwood Hoodies’ though these are starting to run low for the Friday evening performance.  The Year 6 children have been practising hard, so it will be a wonderful show!  If you want to purchase any tickets they are £2.00 each and are available from the school office.

 

Summer Reading Challenge

Our local library have been in to see the children this week and told them all about the Summer Reading Challenge ‘Animal Agents’ and how they can take part.  All they have to do is read SIX library books and visit the library regularly over the summer, collecting special stickers and incentives along the way.  Please encourage your child to visit one of our libraries (Broomhill, County Library in the town centre or whichever is nearest to you). We will be celebrating all children who took part in the beginning of the new school year.  You can find out more at www.summerreadingchallenge.org.uk

Incidents

If an incident happens at school and parents are concerned, can we please ask parents in the first instance to come into school and speak to a member of staff.  Sometimes these concerns are put on Social Media which can result in incorrect information being shared and other parents worrying needlessly.  If you have any concerns please speak to the class teacher.  If this does not resolve the issue then please speak to a member of the office team who will be able to make an appointment for you to speak to a senior member of staff.  We will always do what we can to help.

 

Free Summer Club

One Life are again offering a free summer club in Ipswich from Monday 24th July – Friday 28th July at Chantry Academy.  This is available for children aged 4-14 years of age who are wanting to be fitter and healthier. Please see the picture for contact details to book a space.

Mrs Van der Gucht is organising a first aid course, which will be free for parents to attend on Tuesday 11th July from 9.00am to 12.00pm.  There are just 3 spaces left.  Let the office know if you would like one of these spaces.

 

PE Kit

A reminder to all parents, please ensure your child has their PE kit in school for the relevant day each week.  We are having a number of children each week forgetting to bring their kit into school.  We would suggest it may be easier to send in their kit and leave it at school for the half-term so it is always available.

Message from Mrs Hall

Well done to our Year 4 children for their excellent performance at The Corn Exchange on Wednesday 21st June. The children really enjoyed taking part and were brilliantly behaved. We are currently organising arrangements for next year and I am delighted to report that we are fully staffed. It is our intention to notify you next week, which teacher/s your child has. Thank you for your continued support.

 

Early Years and Key Stage 1 - Stars of the Week

Library News

We now have three new Word Millionaires!  Congratulations to Lora Tahiri, Georgia Bennett and Jack Sheehan.  We also have a few more children who we are expecting to achieve Millionaire status by the end of term. Keep reading.

 

Sunny Weather

Whilst we are having this lovely sunny weather can we please remind parents to put sun cream on their children before school each morning and to send in a hat to be worn at break and lunch times.

 

Year 6 Fundraising

Our Year 6 classes are continuing their fundraising for their end of year trip to Pleasurewood Hills.  The children will be selling an assortment of ice-lollies after school each Friday.  Most lollies will be 50p each.  Please come along to the Key Stage 1 playground or the Waterford Road entrance if you would like to buy one.

 

Sports Day – Postponed

After careful consideration, it is with great regret that we have to postpone Sports Day until September 2017.  This is due to the ongoing building work, which makes access to the school from the field area for toilet and water facilities very difficult.  We appreciate that lots of parents and children will be disappointed by this decision, but it has not been taken lightly. The health and safety of the children and parents/carers is of paramount importance to us.

 

Medical Appointments

From Monday 26th June 2017 all medical appointments will only be authorised if the school receives an appointment card, stating the time and date of appointment and/or a copy of the prescription or medication issued by the GP and produced to the school office.  Where possible medical appointments should be made outside school hours.  For hospital appointments, please submit the appointment letter to the school prior to the appointment so that class teachers are aware in advance that your child will be absent from their lesson.  For unavoidable appointments within the school day please bring your child into school for registration and then leave for the appointment.  Your child will then be able to submit their lunch choice.  If there are any concerns about this procedure and how it affects you and your child, please contact Mrs Poulter, our Attendance Officer.

 

Pupil Voice – School Prefects

At Whitehouse, we are keen to provide pupils with opportunities to have a say in the decisions which affect them.  This is done through a number of pupil-representative bodies such as the School Council, the TOAST Team and the Prefects.  Involving pupils in the life of the school enables them to feel valued and provides them with opportunities to develop important life skills such as communication, problem solving, team work, leadership etc. which will serve them well in adult life.  Our pupil-representative bodies are recruited either through applying for a position or by being voted in.  This gives students the chance to learn more about the recruitment process as well as about Democracy. We are currently in the process of hiring our School Prefects for the next academic year.  We have received a number of applications from our current Year 5 pupils and are looking forward to interviewing the short-listed candidates within the next few weeks.

It would be great if parents could take this opportunity to talk to their child about the recruitment process and what it entails as well as discuss with their son/daughter what they want to be in the future.  Information on how to support your child chose his/her future career can be found on the website.  To find it, select ‘Our School’ then ‘Pupil Voice’ and scroll down.

Can you help?

We are looking for an illustrator, artist or graphic designer who would be willing to come into school and work on a special project with some of our competition winners.  If you can help, or know someone who would be willing to help, please speak to a member of the office team.

Dinner and Breakfast Club Debts

Robocup Final

On Monday Mr Gifford took a group of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils to the UK Finals of Robocup at BT Martlesham.  The children programmed software robots with AI to complete rescue tasks against the clock.  Our children did a wonderful job and we won two awards!  One award was for strategy and the other was for endeavour.  Well done!
