Amongst the many characters from Harry Potter, and multiple princesses across the year groups, we also had very hungry caterpillars, Where's Wally, Horrid Henry, Gangsta Granny, Mildred Hubble and the Cat in the Hat, amongst many others. Staff also enjoyed dressing up as much as the children.
World Book Day in Nursery!
We enjoyed breakfast bagels and books!
Year 1 had a fantastic inspiration day to introduce our new topic, 'City Explorers' which is based on the book Claude in the City. Linking to the book, we had a 'robber' come in a steal a very special parcel that was supposed to be delivered to Class 3 and Class 4. The children had to chase the robber to try and get the parcel back! Once the parcel had returned to us, we got to explore all of the things that Claude had left for us in there. This helped the children to learn all about the different countries within the UK and the capital cities for each of them. They then had the chance to create their very own posters in teams to encourage Claude to visit the city of Wolverhampton by telling him all of the wonderful things that you can do here!
Year 4 children had a disco on their inspiration day! They came dressed as their favourite musical hero and shared great facts about them to the rest of the class. We listened to a variety of musical genres from over the years. Some were live performances! We enjoyed dancing and celebrating great music. What is your favourite music genre?
On Friday 7th January 2022, Year 2 children took part in Rumble in the Jungle inspiration day. The children dressed up as explorers and rainforest animals. They recited a poem called ‘Walking through the Jungle’ and created their own rainforest poem. They ‘imagined’ they were explorers to visit the Amazon Rainforest and enjoyed learning number facts in Jungle Maths. In the afternoon, the children created their own paper plate rainforest animal and collage trees for their classroom.

Year 4 have had a wonderful afternoon recreating life on the Titanic! They were split into 1st class and 3rd class. 1st Class passengers were waited on in the luxurious dining room - they couldn't get enough. 3rd Class passengers had to help themselves to their meal and clean away their own tables.
Later on, the 3rd Class passengers thought that life was more fun in the evening as they danced around with friends and had a ball.
1st Class passengers, sat around the table and listened to classical music whilst enjoying conversation.
Year 4 had a phenomenal day of learning from Humph's Histories about Ancient Greece. The day was packed full of learning and exciting experiences for all of us - including the staff!
Steve really brought History to life for everyone and we have all learnt so much from this day. The children went home really excited and can't wait to continue their learning this term.
