Reception Art morning

Art and craft sessions are always a lovely time because it gives parents the opportunity to come into school and do some fun activities with their children. The children really enjoyed doing these art activities with their family, it was lovely to see both mums and dads taking time out to come and participate in the art morning. Thank you to Mrs Harrison and the parent volunteers who help organise such events. Here are some photos from the morning.

Our little Green fingers!

Now that Summer is finally here, children have been thoroughly enjoying themselves outside. The children love learning outdoors, they always have so much to explore. Recently, as part of our learning, Reception children planted some beans.  They planted them in  small pots, then when they began to grow they transferred them outside. The children, regularly, watered the plants with the help of a grown up. The bean plant grew and grew! Just like in the Jack and the Beanstalk story. Soon flowers started to grow, and the children said their would be nectar inside them. One day, as the children were watering they noticed something growing, they saw real beans growing! The children were so happy with their very own produce. Well done children!

Year 5 West Midland Safari Park trip

On 28th June, Year 5 went to West Midland Safari Park to look at various animals like tigers, elephants and giraffes. Children know a lot about them thanks to Science lessons about animals’ life cycles and their habitats. Everyone was delighted with this experience as a majority of these animals live in other parts of the world. Even though it was very hot, children’s behaviour was fantastic and they learnt a lot. Well done year 5!

Year 6 enjoy themselves in Drayton Manor Park

Healthy Breakfasts in Nursery

This week the children in Nursery have been learning all about healthy breakfasts. We have talked about the things that we like to eat in the morning which are good for us, such as porridge, corn flakes and yoghurt with fruit. We have also talked about the food that we like to have as an occasional treat, such as chocolate, cake and sweets, which taste delicious but contain a lot of sugar. We know that these are not very good for us in the morning, and to make the best start to the day we need a healthy breakfast!
