In Early Years we have been learning about ‘Life Cycles and Habitats’ during our theme ‘If You Go Down to the Woods’. We watched our caterpillars grow, build a chrysalis and change into a beautiful butterfly. We sang them a song as we set them free. We watched our baby frogs change from tadpoles to froglets. We put them back into their natural habitat to continue their life cycle.
All staff wish you a very happy half term holiday and look forward to seeing the children safely back at school on Monday 4th June.
Our year 5 & 6 team arrived at St Thomas' full of confidence after the previous weeks win.
After a great start going 1 - 0 up the boys worked extremely hard to defend all of the oppositions attacks, but unfortunately we went in at half time 2 - 1 down.
After conceding another gaol and with an injured Nathan (Y6) electing to go into goal and making some wonder saves, we again lifted our heads and brought the back to within one goal (3-2 to St Thomas'). The boys gave it all they could whist unfortunately conceding another goal . The game finished 4 -2 (to St Thomas').
I think all staff and parents would agree it was a fantastic game from two sets of mature young boys playing with positive attitudes. Great sportsmanship!
A huge WELL DONE to all of our Year 2 and Year 6 pupils who have completed their SATs examinations over the last two weeks. They have worked super hard over the last term in the build up to these statutory tests and we are so very proud of them.
It's finally happened, We have won a game!!!
After a long season of disappointments our squad have kept their heads up and risen to the occasion. Yes that's right we have had our first win! The Year 4 and 5 (7 aside team) took a 4-1 win against St Thomas' C of E primary school. With two goals from Owen Edmonds (Y4) and two goals from Nicholas Hough (Y5) both of whom narrowly missing out on hat-trick. The team really pulled together with a fantastic defence and our goal keeper John-Gary Morris (Y5) keeping out several shot on target.
A great team effort all round. We are all so very proud!
Thank you again to all the parents and family who came to support.
Fingers crossed we can do the double next week with our Year 5 & 6 team.
Children in year 4 thoroughly enjoyed a great Bikability session ran by Wolverhampton City Council’s Road Safety team. They successfully completed their Cycle Training Level 1 scheme to further develop their cycling skills. This involved a 2 hr off road session that took place on the school playground. The children showed a high level of enthusiasm and excitement for the activities. It was a pleasure to see them in such a different learning environment with 2 children learning to ride from scratch.

What a fantastic way to end such a super term! All of the children in Nursery and Reception took part in a wonderful Easter Bonnet Parade and did such an amazing job. Parents and carers helped the children to make their bonnets at home and we were astounded by their creativity! Family and friends were invited to watch their children proudly parade their bonnets and we all had a great deal of fun!
All staff hope you are having a fantastic holiday and we look forward to seeing the children safely back at school on Monday 16th April.

On Friday 23rd March the staff and pupils took part in a danceathon in aid of Sport Relief 2018. Staff and pupils were encouraged to dress up in their sportiest outfits and show of their best dance moves! Everyone involved had a great time and really looked the part, dancing along to their favourite music.
Quotes form the children:
'The best bit was the music. I love 'Let It Go'.
'We did our best silly dancing, it was the Chicken Dance!'
'The teachers looked really good'.
'It was kind of fun because I could exercise'.
'My favourite song was Katy Perry'
