On Tuesday 17th July, the pupils took part in the annual Race for Life to raise funds and awareness for cancer research. The event took place on our brand new field and consisted of laps with a variety of obstacles along the way. Everyone had a great time as well as donating to cancer research.
On Monday July 16th 2018 parents and carers were invited to our Reception Graduation Assembly as the children move on from Early Years into Year One.
All pupils were presented with a certificate and a beautiful dictionary from Ray Ward courtesy of Wednesfield Rotary Club.
We all enjoyed a slideshow of memories from throughout the year and pupils were also presented with their Learning Journeys and Sharing Together Journals.
We were extremely proud of them all!
On Friday 6th July year 4 thoroughly enjoyed a trip to the seaside. They travelled to Llandudno, walked along the promenade and travelled by tram up the Great Orme. The children were really excited to eat lunch looking across the sea views and having fun on the adventure playground. They enjoyed ice cream and fish and chips. For some this was their first experience of the seaside and their smiles were amazing. The children behaved exceptionally well and were a credit to the school.
During the Summer term, Year 4 have been learning a variety of songs and musical terminology as well as learning how to play the Ukulele with Wolverhampton Music School. To celebrate the end of their music lessons, they performed a music concert showing off all their new skills. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their sessions, particularly the songs, and really loved showing their families and other children in the school their new skills.
Year 1 and Reception had a fantastic day visiting Hoo Farm. They looked at all the different farm animals and found out about their different diets and habitats.
The children were even allowed to feed some animals using the special animal food and they got to meet and stroke a hedgehog and a lamb which they all enjoyed.
The day was finished off with a play on the park!
On Thursday 28th June, the school field was officially launched in preparation for sports day. This was a fantastic event with a variety of special visitors to celebrate our official launch. These included:

They all took part in the different races including the sprint, shuttle run, bat and beanbag or ball, ball dribble and the relay race to finish.Thank you to all the people who came to put up the shelters for us as the children were able to keep cool and have a drink while waiting for their next race.Good team support was shown throughout the morning - well done everyone.
As part of our theme ‘Under the Sea’ pupils in Nursery and Reception enjoyed a fantastic ‘Pirate Day’. Children and staff dressed up as Pirates and the costumes were absolutely fantastic! We all took part in pirate singing, dancing and music in the sunshine. We also made pirate jewellery, eye patches, hats and flags. The children made treasure maps and took part in treasure hunts in the sand…with real golden coins as prizes!!! Everyone made pirate cakes with Jolly Roger flags and icing and had fun talking like Pirates all day long… SHIVER ME TIMBERS!!!!!
The year 6 pupils have been given the opportunity to take part in sessions run by British Cycling. During the sessions, the children have been learning about cycling safety and playing a variety of games. The children have loved the sessions so far and so have the teachers!
The children in Nursery and Reception thoroughly enjoyed their Father’s Day Celebrations on Thursday June 14th. We shared activities such as biscuit-decorating, football, skittles and creative tasks with our Dads, Granddads, Uncles and big Brothers. Our staff enjoyed sharing pictures and stories about their own Dads and then it was time to ‘cuddle up’ and enjoy a special story. All of our grown-ups were extremely proud of the medals they received from the children. What another wonderful day!
