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!
Year 6 enjoying Sports Day
Year 3 having fun on Sports Day
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!
School council supported 'Wednesfield in Bloom' by creating an Australia themed wheel barrow! Big thanks to Mrs Dawson!
Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Dudley Canal and Tunnel trust, we were able to experience the day in the life of a child during the industrial revolution. We learnt how terribly children were treated and how they had to go to work from the age of just 5 years old. Travelling through the dark caverns we could experience the cramped and dark conditions and realise how good children have things now. A small selection of children were given the responsibility of legging the boat this allowed us to make it back to dry land. After the activity on the canal we went into the classroom and enjoyed a map and coordinate activity where as a class we found some pirate treasure. Our penultimate activity was working as a team to create our own ship which we were able to race in the mini canal. Our day ended with the opportunity to look around the gift shop and then a quiz where we could show off all the new knowledge we learnt during the day. A fantastic day had by all and a massive thank you to all the staff and volunteers at Dudley Canal and Tunnel Trust.
Science Week Merit winners for their outstanding efforts.
Year 3 had an amazing time asking and answering a range of questions during their science week.
Throughout the week they have investigated many questions including - How do shadows change? What happens to the water in a vase full of flowers? As well as also exploring chemical reactions and the affect of temperature on a liquid.
The children in Nursery and Reception found out so much about the ambulance service and how to make 999 calls this week! Mrs Beards visited the children in Early Years to talk about her very important job! She showed the children her uniform and taught them how to make 999 calls correctly. The children took turns to try on her headset and they were extremely excited about this! Another interesting day filled with lots of learning!
