One of our pupils was so inspired by our geography topic that he persuaded his family to go on a sightseeing trip over the weekend! He took them to many of the landmarks we've located and studied - we hope he was an excellent tour guide!

We love seeing learning going on at home, getting the whole family involved. Remember to share all the wonderful activities you're doing at home.

We love every Flexi-Friday but this one felt a little more "historic" as we spent the day learning about King Charles III. Many of the children were surprised to learn that he was the first heir to attend an actual school rather than being taught at home. They were impressed by his commitment to charities and the environment too. Classes were able to spend the end of the day preparing decorations for the classroom which we look forward to using next week.

In maths, we've continued learning all things FRACTIONS. This can be quite a confusing topic but the children have shown their resilience and determination as always. 

Questions to ask this weekend:

*How do you know 1/2 and 3/6 are equivalent?

*What is 1/3 of 12? Can you draw a bar model to prove it?

*Which conjunctions and adjectives are most useful when trying to persuade someone to come to Birmingham?

*After reading "The Wild", was it right that the little girl returned to the forest? What happened in the text to support your decision?

*Is Little Red Riding Hood's hood roja or rosa?

*Did her abuela live in a casa or a bosque?

  • School Council Visit to London

    On 18th May, our Year 3-6 school councillors went on a very special trip to London. Our school councillors were also joined by school councillors from Colmers Farm Primary (one of our other schools in our MAT). The children got to experience the Tube in rush hour and also had special guided tours of Westminster Abbey, where our King’s coronation took place, and the Houses of Parliament. Whilst at the Houses of Parliament the children had a special lesson about how laws are made and also had the opportunity to watch the representatives in the House of Lords and the House of Commons debating.

  • Reception's Trip to Ash End Farm

    Reception really enjoyed their first ever school trip to Ash End House Children's Farm. When we arrived at the farm, we were greeted by a farmer who took us on a tour. We were lucky enough to see lots of different animals and we even got to help the farmers with some of their jobs, such as feeding the animals and collecting a fresh egg to take home. The children enjoyed learning about each of the animals at the farm and singing songs about the animals.
