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.
The children had a wonderful time. They learnt many interesting facts about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age which will help with our understanding for our history topic this term. Today, we learnt fow to make felt from wool, looked at fascinating artefacts from both the Stone Age and Iron Age period, and wove wool to make bracelets.
Summer holidays are nearly over! We hope our families have had a happy one, and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Wednesday 5th September!
We are so proud of all of our Year 6 children and wish them all the best as they move on to secondary school. It is never easy to say goodbye, however we have no doubt that each and every one has a bright future ahead of them!
