We are happy to say that our new Reception cohort have now settled well into full-time school as they complete their first full week. They have enjoyed lots of adventures and made many new friends. They have explored exciting learning, found out about new rules and tackled school lunches with so many happy smiles! Your teachers are all extremely proud of you and we are certainly looking forward to sharing many more opportunities for learning and having lots of fun with you all! Well done Reception!
Year 3 were a little confused after lunch as some ice blocks had been left in their classroom.
Some observant members of our class noticed that paper was trapped inside the ice! The children discussed how the ice could be melted quickly and they then investigated the different ways.
Eventually all the ice melted and the children discovered that the paper was actually clues to their learning!
Year 3 are very excited to find out how the clues all link to each other.
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 we would love for your year 6’s to be part of it. The aim of the event will be to address any concerns or worries that your current year 6 pupils may have during this big but exciting transition from Primary school to Secondary school. They 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.
Year 4 enjoying sports day!
The sun was shining, proud parents were watching and children were enjoying themselves. The right ingredients for a SUPER Sports Day!
Children took part in a sprint, an obstacle race, javelin throwing and a sprint whilst holding a bat and a ball.
Well done to everyone in Year 1 for taking part and most importantly having fun!

Science Week in Early Years Reception pupils had a fabulous time during Science Week! We explored lots of different scientific skills using the theme of ‘Dinosaurs’. We froze and melted dinosaurs in ice, explored and made our own fossils, looked for dinosaur bones and explored dinosaur metals and magnets. We had fun making Science projects and even set off a miniature volcano outdoors! Well done Alanna for winning our Science Project award with ‘How do fish breathe under water?’
Nursery pupils had a fabulous time during Science Week! We explored lots of different things including ice and melting, decaying food and growing plants. We had fun making Science projects with our older brothers and sisters and even won prizes!
Reception and Year One had a fabulous time at Twycross Zoo! We saw giraffes, gorillas, zebras, penguins and leopards and many other wonderful animals. We had a picnic in the sunshine and enjoyed exploring the Adventure Playground. What an amazing day!
As part of our theme ‘People Who Help Us’ Faith’s Mummy and our School Governor Gemma Hill brought her ambulance into school to show the children in Early Years. She taught us all about the lights, colours and sirens. She even allowed us to sit in the ambulance with our friends!
She showed us her uniform and answered lot of questions…We had lots of fun!
The children developed their skills over a 6 week block, gained confidence, learnt new skills and learnt about how to keep safe on the roads. Some children even learnt how to ride a bike! The final sessions ended with a Go Ride race where the children were awarded medals and certificates in a ceremony. The sessions are sponsored by HSBC and Chris Hoy.
Year 6 were delighted to receive a card from Buckingham Palace in response to cards they sent on the birth of the royal baby!
