The Challenge is on!
Through orienteering, Year 6 have solved mathematical problems, riddles and a series of brain tasking challenges. They worked effectively in teams to complete the tasks set and gain points for their team. Well done to Group 4 - the winners!
Today Year 6 have been learning about a very important topic which could save a life! They have put their friends into the recovery position, bandaged an arm, treated bleeding and shock and familiarised themselves with DR ABC - wow they are so talented!
2H created these fabulous castles as a home learning project. They are super and thanks to parents for your support with our project.
During our Science week, Year 4 focussed on human digestion. We explored the names and functions of the parts of the body involved in digestion but we needed to really understand how it worked . . . so we recreated our digestive systems using equipment found in most people’s houses. It was great, smelly, but great! Ask your child how digestions works and be prepared for all of the fascinating facts and delicious smell descriptions.
The Vikings are coming! We spent the day as Anglo-Saxon families preparing our food, sharpening our weapons and creating our clothes. During the afternoon we practised our warfare ready to defend our land from those vicious Viking invaders. We all had a great time and learned lots about Anglo-Saxon Britain and even used artefacts made by actual Anglo-Saxons all those years ago.
We had a glorious day learning about many animals and their habitats. After lunch we went exploring the farm land and found a wonderful adventure playground where we developed our climbing skills.
Year 2 have enjoyed a fabulous visit from Well and Karen from the Happening History Company. Our topic is Castles and we have been learning about the first castles, life in castles, who lived in them and what rooms were inside and what they were used for. We had such a great day and experienced wearing armour, we dressed as servants, noblemen and ladies in their particular clothes, we ground wheat to make flour using heavy stones and created butter using butter churns. We learnt that medieval people created the material linen for their clothes by weaving wool and rich people wove silk from the silk worm and dyed it to make their beautiful clothes. Our photos demonstrate the great learning that went on.
Well and Karen emailed us the following day and said,
‘The children were brilliant, they had great knowledge and listened well. We were amazed they could remember the name linen, that almost never happens! They asked really good questions and were obviously keen to learn. They are a credit to the school!’
On Thursday 20th June, Year 5 visited the Wolverhampton Art Gallery where they had facilitated sessions in the gallery space looking at Pop Art, Still Life, Victorian and Georgian Art and sculptures, focusing particularly on the elements of fashion in the artworks. Both classes had practical sessions where they had an opportunity to use block printing technique to create designs inspired by the 1960s fashion and art collections in the gallery. Children really enjoyed exploring work of different modern artists exhibited at the gallery.
On Friday 14th June, twelve year 3 and 4 children had the opportunity to compete in the Great School Run at Aldersley Leisure Village. The children had a fantastic day! We played netball, football, volleyball and archery. Then, the children competed against other schools in a great school run. We are so proud of their perseverance as they kept running and didn't give up, even in the horrid weather! At the end of the race, the children met Wolfie, the Wolverhampton Wanders FC mascot.
