Thank you to everybody who came to our Harry Potter gallery of work. The children had had a fantastic time during the week and this reflected well in their work, which they were all extremely proud of. We raised a fantastic £210 towards our year 6 residential selling butterbeer and cakes.
Thank you for your continued support.
Class 1 and 2 had a wonderful day at the Safari Park. We were very lucky to see lots of animals and we especially enjoyed the sea lion show! Super behaviour from all children and a lovely day!
We had a fantastic as Palmers Cross turned into Hogwarts for our Harry Potter week! We kick started our week with a traditional Hogwarts's sorting hat ceremony, and then made our wands ready for the magic of science to begin. Children had a lovely time making potions, growing gummy bear, learning about owls, making model Hogwarts, creating hovering wizard hats and sending secret messages. We even had fun cooking cakes, chocolate frogs and making our very own butter beer.
Year 5 have loved this weeks theme. They have enjoyed converting wizard money to muggle money and working out the cost of wizard items in Maths. In English, we have acted out a part of Harry Potter, planned and have written their own play scripts. Finally, in Science they have created their own Hogwarts out of junk modelling, that needed to include: a catapult, a swimming pool and a working drawbridge. The castle also needed to be earthquake proof.
Class four had a very exciting and very sticky day today! We have made foamy troll toothpaste and Butter Beer slime!
Class 3 have been getting stuck in to their Science Week learning. They enjoyed starting the week off by creating their own wands. Their latest task was to create giant gummy bears for Honeyduke's Sweet Shop. They even wrote a set of instructions so that others can make their own giant gummy bears.'
Class 3 enjoyed learning about how chocolate changes when it solidifies after it has been melted. Our favourite part was testing that it tasted the same!
Class 3 finished Science Week by exploring how they could make a CD hover. They worked really well as a team and we even managed to race our hovering CDs.
The sun made a welcome appearance for our KS2 Sports Day. Thank you for coming to support the children; they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Key Stage 2 welcomed their guests to enjoy a doughnut and take part in crafts and board games. A great time was had by all!
Year 5 had a fantastic trip to RAF Cosford. They had a superb WW2 workshop where they got to look at real artefacts. In addition, they also got the chance to fire their own rocket.
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.
