We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2017/18 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in
2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
I have got several pairs of black leggings left over from the play, all with no name in. If you think they are your child’s, please tell them to come and have a look at them in the Year 5 classroom. I will keep them until the end of term before donating them.
Year 4 and 5 had a ‘splashing time’ at Water World today! We were so proud to watch them beam with confidence as they played in the water, bravely tackle the many flumes and also behave extremely sensibly in such a busy environment!
Thank you to all of the children for a fabulous day! Thank you also to everyone who came along to make it a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
Mrs Hartwell & Miss Frearson.
Our current arrival time is now estimated at 3:30pm please keep checking the website for more updates.
WOW! What a lovely trip. Year Three visited Dudley Zoo today and what a wonderful end of year trip to finish a brilliant year. The children were incredibly well behaved as they always are and represented the school wonderfully. Despite the crowds of people and other schools we managed to pack a huge amount of walking, exploring and map-reading into a relatively short period of time.
Some of us came face to face with a tiger; saw the giraffes eating from the tree tops, monkeys monkeying around and some close encounters with lots of animals. The children had the chance to feed the Lorikeets, stroke the chinchillas, feed the meerkats and wave hello as well as ROAR at lots of different animals along the way. We even had the chance to watch a bird of prey display whilst eating our lunch!
The freedom of such a huge space was brilliant for the children who let off some steam by running around the various playgrounds and
adventure areas. Some very tired but content children on the journey back home, they’ll sleep well tonight.
Our last trip of Year Three – it’s been a blast!
Tomorrow is our trip to Waterworld!

Year 4 are really enjoying learning about Judaism.
We have discussed where Judaism came from, what beliefs underpin this religion (recognising some similarities to Catholicism) and some of the special signs and symbols.
This week we have been exploring the Jewish festival of light, Hanukkah. Jews celebrate this festival to remember God’s miraculous gift of light which he gave to the people of Israel over 2000 years ago to help them restore their temple after fighting for what they believed in.
After learning about the traditional celebrations that take place during this festival, we learnt a Jewish song and went outside to have a little dance (and a lot of fun!).
