Class 3 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Jaguar Land Rover. They were treated to a tour of the factory where they learned how man and machine work together to build the engines. The children had to use their scientific knowledge to test the friction of different surfaces. In the afternoon, the children were put to the test in the Engenious Challenge! The challenge involved building a model of a four cylinder internal combustion engine with moving pistons and crankshaft. Class 3 worked really well in their teams and made us very proud.
Class 7 and Reception had a fantastic day at Rays Farm on our school trip. We had a tour of the farm where the children learnt all about the different animals and how to look after them. They were allowed to feed some of the animals and had the opportunity to go in with the goats so they could stroke them. Whilst we were on our visit we were fortunate enough to see a baby goat minutes after it was born.
Following a nice picnic on the grass we went on an adventure into the woodlands where we explored the sculptures from different stories and nursery rhymes. We used these sculptures to retell the stories. The children had a brilliant day with lovely weather and learnt a lot about how the farm runs.
Class 7 went to RAF Cosford as part of our History Topic Transport.
The children had a tiring day but really enjoyed themselves. They got to sit in an old aeroplane and watch some videos of them in action.
In the Fun and Flight area we got to try out different activities. We were really excited and didn't want to leave.
Class 2 had a fantastic day today at the Black Country Museum. We found out lots of new things about transport through time and even managed to fit a trip to the cinema in too! Well done to all children for behaving so brilliantly, we are very proud!
On Tuesday 13th November, Class 5 had a fantastic visit to Birmingham Art Gallery and Museum. They took part in an Greek Art master class and a Greek Gods workshop. They got the chance to paint using the red figure technique and etch into card to create geometric patterns. In the other workshop they got the chance to act out famous myths by dressing up and using props.
We enhanced our learning on Christianity and learnt lots about the features of a Church. Children took part in several activities creating their own chalice, stained glass window, a tour of the church and even designing their own stole.
Class 3 had a great day on Tuesday 9th October.
Year 3 arrived at Cannock Chase and took part in a range of activities linked to our Stone Age topic. Pupils were organised into their own tribes, built shelters in the forest, had a go at archery to catch their dinner. Pupils also made their own fire using a flint. Their behaviour was super and they all really enjoyed the day in the sunshine.
Reception had a wonderful time at the sea life centre exploring the wonders of under the sea.
Year 1 visited Christ the King Church, where they were met by Rev Simon, who talked to the children about the features of a church and why they are important. They learnt all about the pulpit, altar, lectern, bible and the clothing a vicar needs to wear.
Jaskirat described the trip as 'interesting and fun'
Class 5, had an eventful non-stop day on Friday 29th June at RAF Cosford. We started the day with a rockets workshop, we then enjoyed the 'Fun and Flight' section of the museum. After lunch we had our World War 2 workshop, where we got the chance to look at real artefacts, clothing and shelters.
