Year 2 had a fantastic experience in exploring their new topic ‘Up, up and away!’ The children were dressed in their chosen costumes and discussed their favourite flying toy.
They also participated various activities including a mock flight to Paris, building and painting their own wooden aeroplane, researching information with non-fiction books and the internet. They also watched clips from the film ‘Up’. In the afternoon, the children created Pointillism hot air balloons and ended the day by releasing the balloons into the sky. A couple of days later, we received a call from Bilston to confirm that a pink balloon arrived in her garden!
We hope you have had a wonderful summer break and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Wednesday 4th September.
The Way Youth Zone will be hosting a “Meet your future classmates” event at The Way Youth Zone during the summer holidays and they would love for year 6’s to be part of it. The aim of the event will be to address any concerns or worries that our year 6 pupils may have during this big but exciting transition from Primary school to Secondary school. Children will get the chance to make new friends, engage in team building activities, be competitive with our fun and messy challenge as well as create an interactive art piece which will help them to settle into their new school.
The event will take place throughout the six weeks holiday and will cost 50p for your students to attend. Upon completing the activities your students will then be able to engage in the other activities that The Way has to offer until 8.30pm - this includes; rock climbing, boxing, dance, sport and many more. All they need to do is check the timetable to see when their new school will be meeting up at The Way.
Summer Squad is coordinated by City of Wolverhampton Council with the support of key city partners and friends.

The Challenge is on!
Through orienteering, Year 6 have solved mathematical problems, riddles and a series of brain tasking challenges. They worked effectively in teams to complete the tasks set and gain points for their team. Well done to Group 4 - the winners!
Today Year 6 have been learning about a very important topic which could save a life! They have put their friends into the recovery position, bandaged an arm, treated bleeding and shock and familiarised themselves with DR ABC - wow they are so talented!
2H created these fabulous castles as a home learning project. They are super and thanks to parents for your support with our project.
During our Science week, Year 4 focussed on human digestion. We explored the names and functions of the parts of the body involved in digestion but we needed to really understand how it worked . . . so we recreated our digestive systems using equipment found in most people’s houses. It was great, smelly, but great! Ask your child how digestions works and be prepared for all of the fascinating facts and delicious smell descriptions.
The Vikings are coming! We spent the day as Anglo-Saxon families preparing our food, sharpening our weapons and creating our clothes. During the afternoon we practised our warfare ready to defend our land from those vicious Viking invaders. We all had a great time and learned lots about Anglo-Saxon Britain and even used artefacts made by actual Anglo-Saxons all those years ago.
