Getting ready to welcome our lovely mums, nans and people who care for us to
our Mother’s Day assembly.
We created an Acrostic Mother’s Day poem together to share about how we feel about our Mums.
The whole school watched a theatre production of the Wizard of Oz.
Year 1 had a fantastic day! We watched the theatre performance and enjoyed retelling the story in our golden writing!
Nursery parents, children and teachers enjoyed getting together to learn about and taste different types of bread from all over the world. Everyone tasted the bread and voted for their favourite.
Just like the Little Red Hen Mrs Sahni asked 'Who will help me?'.
A big thank you to all the parents who said 'I will help!'.
Generously they supplied all the bread and accompaniments.
Thank you from Mrs Sahni, Mrs Chana and Mrs Baker
Shiver me timbers what a day we had on Wednesday 17th October 2018! Pirate Ron anchored his ship at Goldthorn Park for a day of fun and learning opportunities. Almost 60 pirates raided our classrooms at 8:40am as we opened our doors. There were stripes, cutlasses, parrots, and eye patches galore. Pirate Ron taught us about pirate life, battles, and historical characters. The children enjoyed an upbeat puppet show, and took an active part in finding the lost treasure. After a hearty lunch the children got stuck in making fantastic puppets. There were pirates, mermaids and parrots.
On Monday 10th September 2018, Year 1 had a fantastic time on Pirate inspiration day. In the morning we learnt to use directional language to find the pirate treasure and worked together to solve a pirate puzzle! We painted our own class pirate ships and used our phonics to help us to read and spell words with coins. We unlocked the secret pirate code by read capital letters to help us find the golden coins hunt In the afternoon we did pirate PE where we had a we had great fun walking the plank and enjoyed listening to pirate stories with Mrs Flanagan.
The children had a wonderful time. They learnt many interesting facts about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age which will help with our understanding for our history topic this term. Today, we learnt fow to make felt from wool, looked at fascinating artefacts from both the Stone Age and Iron Age period, and wove wool to make bracelets.
As part of their learning about ‘People Who Help Us’, the morning nursery children had a surprise visit from Wolverhampton Fire Brigade. The children learned about a fire fighter’s uniform and tried the helmets on. Phew, they were so heavy! Then they looked around the fire engine and learned about the important equipment a fire fighter uses. After that, the children sat inside the fire engine and pretended to be fire fighters travelling to an emergency. The best part of the morning was spraying water across the playground from the hose. Even though, some of us had a little shower. At the end of the visit, Green Watch left with a blast from the siren and a friendly wave.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and would like to thank Green Watch for a fantastic learning experience.
Selected children from Year 5/6 choir were chosen to represent our school in the Singing in the Rain concert this year at Queen Square.
Rain certainly was not an issue, as the sun shone the whole time, and as the pictures show, the children thoroughly enjoyed singing their hearts out!
Individuals were chosen also to play instruments on the stage this year, which they enjoyed immensely, hence the huge smiles!
