As part of science week, Year 6 were lucky to be part of a live online lesson with The Ogden Trust. The children learnt lots of interesting facts about ‘Light’ and got to make their very own kaleidoscope which they loved experimenting with!
Our netball team made up of Year 4/5/6 pupils thoroughly enjoyed representing our school in the first Inter-Trust Netball tournament.
Such great encouragement, effort and teamwork went into each game.
The children thrived from representing their school - most for the first ever time!
They were awarded 3rd place.
Well done children, so proud of you!
To launch our final topic, Year 6 came dressed in costumes linked to crime and punishment. Little did they know that a crime had been committed - their beloved outdoor play equipment had been stolen! 4 suspects were named by the Police: Mrs Highman, Mrs Evans, Mrs Simpkiss and Mr Clarke. The children investigated the crime and collected evidence, they later questioned all the suspects involved. They came to their conclusions and it was revealed that Mrs Highman had been setup!
A brilliant day had by all - investigators in the making!
Year 6 had an amazing final trip at Edward the Elder visiting Laches Wood. They tested their nerves, stepped out of their comfort zones and faced their fears by completing canoeing, crate stacking and jumping off the 'Power Fan'! A fantastic day had by all, making memories with super team work! Proud teachers!
Great teamship shown from all players! Super proud to see their efforts across all 4 matches to finish 3rd.
Year 5 and 6 found their session with Police Community Support Officer Collis this morning beneficial, they learnt about making good choices and about the dangers/consequences of knife crime.
Year 4 have had a great fun while learning about their new thematic topic 'Meet the Greeks' with Steve from Humphs Histories. They learnt lots of facts including how we find out about the past, where Greece is in relation to the rest of the World, how far the Greeks travelled, and the evidence that tells us this, what the Ancient Greeks ate, Greek gods and the legacy that has been left behind.
They attempted the Archimedes Puzzle, which was a little tricky, but with perseverance they solved it in the end 🙂
The class were divided into two groups - the Athenians and the Spartans, within their groups they each painted their own shield which they used later in the afternoon to protect themselves, after they attempted crushing grapes, with their feet!
The day finished with Year 4 participating in two Olympic events - the discus and the javelin. Watch this space, we may have a future Olympian within Year 4.
A great day was had by all.

Year 5 and 6 enjoying live music again this afternoon thanks to Wolverhampton Music School. It was such a treat and it certainly put a smile on our faces on such a wet afternoon! They listened to a range of music using a range of instruments! A very talented trio!
