Year 6 enjoyed their 1st of 5 sessions with British Cycling. Here they are riding their Sir Chris Hoy bikes which are all provided free of charge. Today the children focused on how to get on and off a bike safely, how to correctly fit a helmet as well as how to safely ride a bike. They particularly enjoyed showing their control when seeing who could go the slowest!

Year 2 went to Beaudesert in Cannock Chase for an overnight residential! They had to carry their own luggage, make their bed and set up their sleeping bag - so independent! They loved the archery, crate stacking and caving activities and the campfire was definitely a class favourite. The groups then did either go karting, shelter building or an assault course - how exciting! Year 2 absolutely loved it!

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been visited by the Animal Man! The children were able to stroke or hold all of the animals and were so brave. They met Blue the kookaburra, Bertie the python and even Rexy and Bruce the lizards. So much fun! To finish the day off, we even painted the children's faces as their favourite jungle animal.

Year 2 had a fabulous day at the RAF Cosford Museum on the 2nd of November 2021. In the morning, we explored the test flight planes and even had the chance to sit in the cockpit of a prototype plane and move the tail of it! After an early picnic lunch, the children had the chance to go on the aviation themed playground where lots of fun was had by all. After looking at the planes used to fight in World Wars, the children took part in a workshop where they made and tested their very own parachutes! All of the children were so excited to finally by able to go on their very first trip at Edward the Elder Primary School and thoroughly enjoyed the learning experiences outside of the school grounds.

Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 were lucky enough to spend the day with local author and illustrator Rebecca Tonks.
The children began their day listening to the story Icky Sticky and taking part in a Q&A. Lots of sensible and inquisitive questions!

Year 3, 4 and year 6 created artwork to go towards a whole school display inspired by our hopes and dreams! Excellent focus and imagination children!

 

  

 

 

 

Some of our children have purchased a signed copy of Rebecca Tonk's book Icky Sticky. They can't wait to take it home and read it all over again!

Carol and Terry came to visit the children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to teach us all about what it is like to be blind or partially-sighted.
Carol brought her guide dog Flora to meet us all and explained how she helps her to stay independent and safe when she is ‘out and about’.
We raised £85.00 for The Guide Dogs for the Blind charity!
What a special morning!

The children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 joined a virtual assembly from Severn Trent Water to learn all about the process of cleaning water and how it is important to save as much water as we can.
We learned all about how easy and important it is to save water and how this will help to take care of our world.

Years 5 and 6 had their first annual session with the PCSO this afternoon - today's focus being Internet Safety. The children learnt all about how to keep safe online, including information about privacy settings. The children asked lots of sensible questions and the answers added to their bank of knowledge on the subject.

Year 6 were lucky enough to visit Mount Pleasant Farm near Birmingham and take part in Chef on the farm! They stepped out of their comfort zone and learnt new skills in the kitchen - cooking up a healthy vegetable soup and fruit salad for lunch with the help of Chef Idris.
They got to get up close and personal with some well know farm favourites including feeding the chickens, collecting the eggs, feeding the sheep, meeting a calf less than an hour old and visiting the milking parlour.
A wonderful day had by all - hopefully some chefs or farmers in the making!
