Shiver me timbers what a day we had on Wednesday 17th October 2018! Pirate Ron anchored his ship at Goldthorn Park for a day of fun and learning opportunities. Almost 60 pirates raided our classrooms at 8:40am as we opened our doors. There were stripes, cutlasses, parrots, and eye patches galore. Pirate Ron taught us about pirate life, battles, and historical characters. The children enjoyed an upbeat puppet show, and took an active part in finding the lost treasure. After a hearty lunch the children got stuck in making fantastic puppets. There were pirates, mermaids and parrots.
Parents' evening takes place on Tuesday 16th October (except 3R) and Wednesday 17th October. If you have not yet made an appointment please return your appointment slip as soon as possible as this is a great opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and share any relevant information regarding their learning. We look forward to seeing you.
As part of our Tudors and Stuarts topic, Year 5 children had the most wonderful day out at Moseley Old Hall!
Activities included – acting out the escape of King Charles II and dressing up in Tudor costumes, a tour around the house (including seeing the Priest hole where Charles II actually hid), and making/playing Tudor toys and games.
It was a truly remarkable fun-filled day, and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
Goldthorn Primary School celebrated Harvest Festival with an assembly by Mr Rawlinson giving thanks for the food we are lucky enough to eat. We had super donations from our families to give to the Good Shepherd Ministry and the House Captains helped load the donated food on to the van.
The 4th October 2018 is School Census Day, so we would like to encourage as many children as possible to have a school lunch on that day. The more children that have a lunch on that day means we will get more funding to put towards learning resources for your children.
On Monday 10th September 2018, Year 1 had a fantastic time on Pirate inspiration day. In the morning we learnt to use directional language to find the pirate treasure and worked together to solve a pirate puzzle! We painted our own class pirate ships and used our phonics to help us to read and spell words with coins. We unlocked the secret pirate code by read capital letters to help us find the golden coins hunt In the afternoon we did pirate PE where we had a we had great fun walking the plank and enjoyed listening to pirate stories with Mrs Flanagan.
