On Friday 25th January the girls football team continued their league campaign with an excellent 2-0 victory over league leaders Marsh Hill. The girls also got to meet the captain of the Ladies from the Aston Villa Football Club who gave the team some tickets to go and watch the team play at Villa Park for their fantastic performance. Keep up the good work girls!
This week during guided reading year 6 have been looking at poetry with a special focus on intonation and tone, As it was Burns night 25th January we looked at poems by Robert Burns. We studied and learnt My love is like a red, red rose.

This week, we have sketched and coloured our very own Tudor roses, the children have focused on sketching very carefully and adding detail to their rose.
Take a look at our Tudor roses!
Year 4 have been learning about 2D shape and investigating the lines of symmetry using a range of regular and irregular shapes. After identifying the lines of symmetry with their partner the children used their new knowledge to think of criteria to sort their shapes accurately. Once they had thought of their criteria they sorted the shapes into a Carroll diagram, or a Venn diagram and explained to their peers why they had placed each shape.
In R.E, Year 1 have been exploring Judaism. We have been looking at different festivals that Jews celebrate and the reasons why they celebrate these festivals. We learnt all about the Maccabees defeating the King of Israel in the story of Hanukkah. We were amazed how the Menorah stayed a light for 8 whole days!
We made our own Menorah’s. We knew that we needed 9 candle sticks and we added the Star of David and other special details.
Take a look at our Menorah’s!
