Year 1 went on a trip to Aston Hall where they learnt all about The Great Fire of London. The children found out what is was like to live in that period and got to dress up as key people such as Thomas Farriner , King Charles and Samuel Pepys.
As part of our learning on weddings and special buildings from other religions, children from Reception visited St Bartholomew Church in Penn. The children learnt about the special features of a church. They listened to Reverend Ben Whitmore talk about important facts and why people attend the church. The children walked around the church to name and describe the main features. We would like to say special thank you to Reverend Ben Whitmore for kindly inviting the children to explore the church.
Selected children from Year 5/6 choir were chosen to represent our school in the Singing in the Rain concert this year at Queen Square.
Rain certainly was not an issue, as the sun shone the whole time, and as the pictures show, the children thoroughly enjoyed singing their hearts out!
Individuals were chosen also to play instruments on the stage this year, which they enjoyed immensely, hence the huge smiles!
On Friday the 25th of May, Year 4 went for a visit to the Think Tank Science Museum in Birmingham. We visited around five different galleries in the museum as well as the Science Garden outside. As part of our visit we were able to see the wonderful animals and fossils in the Amazing Animals gallery and we also had a fantastic Amazing Animals workshop led by Rachel. In this workshop the children were able to touch and stroke various stuffed animals and see other fossils. At the end of the workshop we were able to classify the animals which linked to our learning in Science this term. All of the children agreed that it made for a wonderful day which really reinforced a lot of our learning in Science this year.
All staff wish you a great half term break and look forward to seeing the children safely back at school on Monday 4th June.
Morning Nursery children have thoroughly enjoyed role-playing step by step the last royal wedding for a generation. Teachers, support staff, parents, businesses in the community and the children have all worked in partnership to create a powerful learning experience and a wonderful memory. The photographs speak for themselves depicting the attention to detail, high expectations of the teaching team resulting in the best outcomes for our children.
A very big thank you to everyone for enabling us to have our own Royal Wedding 2018!
