Year Three Go WILD!

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!

R-Time in Year

Year 1 R-Time, working with a partner, developing turn taking, co-operation and listening skills.

 

 

Mastering the use of an atlas in geography lessons.

                                                        

 

The children were trying to locate Colombia!

A quick reminder

Hope the week is going well.  Just a quick reminder, after the break the Reception children will be left at the school gate to walk around by themselves.  Reception staff will be on the playground and at the gate to make sure they are ok.  We are looking forward to the start of the final term on Monday.

A Right Royal Celebration

So the dress has been revealed and the happy couple are married.

Here are a few photographs from Friday’s celebrations                                           .

The afternoon began with a whole school prayer service.

Thank you to the children from Year 3 who wrote and read bidding prayers.

After the service the children gathered in their house groups on the field for a picnic.

Mr Cooke provide music for the afternoon. A lovely way to celebrate and remember a special Royal Occasion.

Finally thank you for all the great hats and outfits the children wore. It was great to see so many different designs. Thank you for all the food that was provided.

Your support  and participation is appreciated.

Planting in Year 1

 

 

Children have planted beans as part of their science topic, Plants.

Each child will take responsibility for looking after their plant, ensuring it has everything it needs to grow. They will keep a diary of how their plant is doing and hopefully we will have lots of lovely beans by the end of the summer term.

May Procession

   

Well done to the children who lead prayers during Sunday’s May Procession. A lovely occasion in glorious sunshine.

During the month of May we dedicate our prayers to Mary.

Throughout this month the children will be visiting Our Lady’s Prayer Garden for shared prayers.

Hello Everyone,

We’ve had another busy week planting. Thank you to Jamie who brought in some beautiful violas to put in our raised bed. We have also planted different flower seeds which should bloom for the Summer – thank you to anyone who has donated any seeds to us. Our potato plants are also thriving and the children have been very excited at how quickly their sunflower seeds are growing.

We will send a letter home next week with details of our Nursery Trip – it is on Wednesday 23rd May to Ash End Farm so pop this date on your calendars. On Friday 18th May we will be celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle so thought it would be lovely if the children could dress in their finery for a wedding – so brush off those suits, bridesmaids dresses and party clothes. Enjoy the long bank holiday weekend and hopefully the sunshine!
