Thank you to all parents and children that produced such brilliant water cycle projects! 

Class 4 showed their technology skills by creating digital music and lyrics for a rap in pairs. 

   

 

 

All staff wish you a very happy half term holiday. We look forward to seeing the children safely back at school on Monday 26th February.

 

February 2018

Class 7 celebrated ‘Chinese New Year’ by learning about the traditions celebrated in China.
Children made a Chinese drum using Chinese writing and features the ‘Year of the Dog’
Finally we shared fortune cookies with each other and learnt about their significance.

 

 

  

To celebrate Chinese New Year, Class 3 spent the afternoon creating Chinese drums with paper plates, lolly sticks, string and beads before decorating them with Chinese symbols. They worked together to thread the beads which was particularly hard but made some fantastic piece of art and music. 

  

 

Year 5 looked at Chinese numbers and did some formal written methods using Chinese numbers. In addition, they investigated Chinese blossom trees and did their own piece of art. They also  looked at Chinese New Year Facts.

Palmers vs West Park

30th January 2018


This was a very close match on a cold, very soggy pitch.  The boys played extremely well and battled to the very end.  West Park scored just before half time to go 1:0 up.  After half time, Palmers put a string of passes together and scored an equalising goal.  Unfortunately, with 1 minute left, West Park went on the attack and scored at the death. 
Final score 2:1

 

Palmers vs Christ Church

6th February 2018


On a snowy Tuesday night, the football team played against Christ Church.  It was a great start, scoring two very quick goals.  After half time, Christ Church scored an early goal.  Then Palmers became stronger and scored two more goals to seal the victory. 
Final score 4:1

Year 5 have been practising their cooking skills at Aldersley!

Week 1

We made apple crumble today.

  

Week 2
We made pizza bread.

Week 3

We made delicious, fresh bread. We learnt what is needed to make bread rise, how to kneed and how to glaze the dough to give it a lovely golden look.  We have also developed our team work to ensure we wash up after ourselves.

  

Week 4 

Fruit cakes were on the menu this week.
Excellent team work to create and wash up in a record breaking time.

   

   

Year 4 had an exciting visit from Severn Trent to learn about water use and sewage treatment. We found out how water travels around the water cycle and, in groups, we measured out the water use of different families to identify water savers and water wasters. 

   

 

 

On 22nd January, twenty-one dancers from three Trust schools (Elston Hall, Palmers Cross and Edward the Elder Primary Schools) competed in the regional heats of the Great Big Dance Off at Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre. Pupils performed their dance 'Faded', choreographed beautifully by dance teacher Miss Jones. Pupils worked extremely hard to perfect the dance and produced a stunning performance! Despite not getting a place in the final, staff and parents are extremely proud of how well pupils performed. More importantly, it has been wonderful to see friendships blossom between pupils from different Trust schools. Well done dancers - you were outstanding and did us all proud!
