Black Country Museum

We have had a fabulous day at the Black Country Museum.  The children were very well behaved and really enoyed the day.  We played with toys and had to decide if they were old or new toys and also whether they would have belonged to a rich family or a poor one.  We walked around the village and went on a barge, watched nails being made, visited a sweet shop, a hardware store and cake shop.  We found out that you had to go to the toilet in a shed in the back garden!  We also discovered why it was called the Black Country, sorry about the colour of our socks!   Below are a few photographs of the day with some more in the photograph gallery.   A big thank you to the parents that helped us today, without your help the children would not be able to experience these trips.

Children’s Mile

Children and parents finally completed the children’s mile this afternoon

. It was a much nicer day to run than the previously scheduled day in March which unfortunately saw the run postponed due to snow. Every child from the school had the opportunity to complete the mile and most of them did however only those who signed up initially were awarded a medal. I do have some medals left over so if your child signed up and didn’t receive theirs then please do ask.

Year 5 Maths: reflection

Continuing with our shape topic, we introduced the concept of reflection today by reflecting objects across a line of symmetry (the skipping rope). We were also challenged to pose for the photos in a symmetrical fashion!

Quad Kids Result

Congratulations to the Year 3/4 children who took part in the quad kids athletics last week. 4th place is a fantastic result – well done everyone.

Well done Year 6!

Well done to Year 6 for successfully completing a tough week of SATs tests. They have worked tremendously hard and shown a great deal of maturity this week. The whole class should be very proud.

I also want to thank all of the staff at school for their support throughout the week as well as in the build-up to this week. Everyone has gone out of their way to help in any way they can, including giving up their own time to support the children. It is greatly appreciated.

Thank you and well done to you all!!

More Rugby Fun!

Today, the focus for our Engage rugby values session was enjoyment. We enjoyed both the practical session and the classroom session, where we learnt that if our friends are enjoying a task, then it rubs off on us and makes us enjoy it more too!

Year 5 get arty!

Year 5 had an amazing time at the Herbert Art Gallery! First, we toured the gallery looking for different patterns in the art work. We particularly enjoyed looking at the Pop Art exhibition. Then, we used these patterns as our inspiration to create our own artwork in the printing workshop. The results were very effective!
