Remembrance Day

By | Uncategorised, Year 1 | No Comments

We spent Friday 11th, learning about Armistice day. We used the cbeebies poppies video, to help us understand what we were learning about. The little rabbit family really helped us to empathise with those living during that time. The children were gripped by the video and it was very emotive to hear them commenting on what they were seeing. We learned some new facts and discussed why we mark this day, every year.

We made some artwork based on the poppy and a little note to express that, we remember why, Armistice day is an important, British tradition.

Bonfire night in the imagination studio!

By | Uncategorised, Year 1 | No Comments

Year 1 had a brilliant time, with our own personal fireworks display in our very own imagination studio. The room was in darkness. The walls were lit with a beautiful scene of a busy city, full of high rise buildings, with a pitch black sky.

We had our Bonfire Safety talk in there, in preparation for the 5th November celebrations. After our safety talk, the children used the interactive walls and the pad on the floor to make fireworks appear and bang all over the walls and floor. It really was amazing. You should have heard the giggles!

After that we returned to the classroom to learn about why bonfire night is a British tradition and complete some bonfire night activities. What a great learning experience.

A great start!

Year 1 have had a great start to the year. Thank you to all parents who attended parents evening.

We will be continuing with our topic of Hot and Cold next half term. We also have a trip which we will be informing you about. The children have really enjoyed the practical activities they have been completing and have been making a great start with their writing in all subjects, including maths. We will be using the bee-bots next half term and will also be looking at baskets in DT. So if you have any unwanted baskets (fruit, storage etc) you wish to donate, please send them to 1FO as soon as possible. We will be use them to help us with our design, make and evaluation of products. The children can also bring in and show interesting baskets you have and use at home.

Homework will be starting after half term.

Thanks for all of your support. We hope you have a fun holiday and get to rest too.

See you back at school next week.

West Bromwich Albion!

By | Uncategorised, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, year 6 | No Comments

Yesterday KS2 had a very exciting afternoon! We were lucky enough to meet three of West Bromwich Albion’s famous football players and ask them questions! Craig Dawson, Callum Mcmanaman and Saido Berahino joined us for an assembly, telling us all about their favourite games and goals and even what career they would have chosen if they hadn’t become footballers. After their Q&A they had some photos taken with us and left us some of their autographs for us to take home.

 

We had a fantastic afternoon and can’t wait to welcome them again in the future!

Caribbean fun day.

By | Uncategorised, Year 2 | No Comments

After a hard week of rehearsing and performing we finished off our Caribbean concert with a beach party morning. We had a great time and as you can see the sun shone for us…..maybe not as hot as the Caribbean but almost warm enough for Mrs Lloyd to take off her jumper!

If you look carefully you’ll spot Mr Kennard doing his moves like Jagger impression. Nice shirt sir!
