End of Spring term

Year 6 have had yet another successful term in the lead up to SATs. They finished their Salvation unit in RE by making and thinking about how they could  use salvation in their Easter card designs. The class designed stained glass crosses with the biblical reference ‘ I am the reserrurection and the life’ John 11 : 25-26

 

 

 

Year 5 trip to the Botanical Gardens

On Wednesday, Year 5 visited the Botanical Gardens as part of their learning about the topic Rain forests. The class had a fantastic time  in the taught session where they learnt about plants and animals from the rain forests. In these sessions the class had the opportunity to handle the animals: there was a stick insect, a chameleon and a corn snake. There was also some enormous seeds, such as the coconuts and the coco de mer. They were enormous! Year 5 then went exploring the different plants and birds. We saw the tropical, sub-tropical, Mediterranean and arid houses. We also met some  beautiful peacocks, peahens, parakeets (budgies) and a very friendly macaw! We learnt a lot and had lots of fun!

SATs are looming

In Year 6 this week we have been using our knowledge to solve a selection of typical word problems involving decimals, fractions and percentages.

The children have study books to help them and find these really useful.  They have been using their skills to relate decimals to fractions and percentages.

Year 1’s trip to Wing Yip

As part of our Topic ‘Where in the world’ we have been exploring different places in the world. We have looked at animals, sports and food from different continents. Year 1 visited Wing Yip to find out what food people in East Asia would eat. We bought some tasty spring rolls, crispy prawn crackers and some delicious lychee and mango juice. We had a great time and will enjoy tasting the yummy food!

Year 6 Residential

Year 6 Residential
A group off Year 6 pupils had the opportunity to attend a one night residential, supported by our friends at Holford Drive Sports Hub. The children and staff arrived at the Hub after school on Friday. The first activity had the children working together and communicating in a variety of ‘Team Building Games’. The children then took part in a workshop looking at social issues effecting young people today, delivered by Colvin White, who is part of the Birmingham Safeguarding Board. Pizza and chips were enjoyed by all for tea, as well as Pancakes and Toast the next morning. The children also had the opportunity to participate in Dodge Ball, Table Tennis, PS4 Competitions and not forgetting, football, outside in the dark! All the children had a great time and we look forward to our next trip.
