Class 4 had a fantastic day today at Longnor Farm learning about where our food comes from and why it is important to stay healthy. We had a tour of the farm and learned about how cheese was produced, then we prepared a delicious healthy meal with the help of Idris Caldora, a chef for the England women's football team!
After coming third in the West Midlands Regional Heat, our fantastic dancers made it through to the The Great Big Dance Off Final in Oxford on Tuesday 4th June 2019. The children performed to the song ‘Survivor’ to an outstanding standard! They were truly incredible to watch and we are so very proud of them. Thank you to all the children, their families and teachers for working so hard, it certainly paid off! Out of 30 schools, our talented dancers ranked 5th! The children worked amazingly well together as a team but they couldn’t have done it without Miss Jones, who choreographed the fantastic routine.
Ready for rehearsals!
We hope you are having a lovely half term break and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Monday 3rd June.
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 2 really enjoyed their habitat learning in science today. We used magnifying glasses to look closely and pooters to collect minibeasts.
All children donated money to take part in a danceathon and design a red nose for Comic Relief. School councillors were very impressed with everybody's dance moves and nose designs.
Thank you and well done to you all for taking part.
