Year 3 and 4 Choir

The choir gave a super performance at Morrison’s in Rugeley this morning.  They certainly got all the shoppers into the Christmas spirit.  We think that with the support of so many family and friends we performed to over 100 people this morning.  Well done to all the children! Thanks also to the staff at Morrison’s for the squash and biscuits (and tea for the teachers!!!).

Jiu Jitsu

Years 2 – 6 had a super day yesterday learning some Jiu Jitsu moves.  The children punched, kicked, rolled and blocked and as you will see from the photos, really enjoyed themselves.

This day followed the Bhangra dancing day earlier in the term, and we are looking forward to more days like this next term.year-6-2 year-6-1 year-5-2 year-5-1 year-3-2 year-3-1 year-2-3 year-2-2 year-2-1

Year 3 and 4 Stone Age day

Year 3 and 4 had a Stone Age experience in school today.   The children have ground their own flour, worked with Stone Age weapons and much more.  It has really helped bring some of this term’s topic work to life.

Thanks to all the parents who helped with some of the fantastic costumes we have seen today. We will add more photos soon.

Remembrance Day in Reception.

To commemorate Remembrance Day Reception created poppies using finger painting skills. We spoke about the meaning behind the poppies and we used octons to create our own representations of poppies. Sienna said that we have a red flower to remember people who died in the war and Zackary remembered that poppies grew in the battlefields.  Zackary was very kind and presented all of his friends in the class with a poppy to wear at our school remembrance service.

Diwali Celebrations

In Reception we have been learning about the story of Rama and Sita to help us understand the importance of the recent Diwali Celebrations. We made diya lamps to help represent the lights that led the way for Rama and Sita to return to their village after 14 years of exile. img_0401img_0393img_0392img_0391img_0389

Visiting Horses

Today Year 5 and 6 have enjoyed having 2 rather large visitors in school. Miss. Hill kindly arranged this so that Year 5 and 6 could meet the horses as part of their Science and English this term. In Science they have been looking at evolution and adaptation – it was impressive hearing the children confidently answering questions related to this. Their English novel this term has been the wonderful ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo. During this novel a farm horse serves in the British Army during World War One. For many of the children today has been their first opportunity to really get close to these beautiful animals.

Google Expeditions

Today our Key Stage 2 classes have visited Mayan ruins in Mexico, The Great Barrier Reef, the Moon, the plains of Africa, and hidden worlds.

It was all thanks to the new Google Expeditions app which we have had demonstrated in school today.  Using the special cardboard headset and a smart phone, children have been immersed in virtual reality worlds, discovering and learning exciting new things.

It was a pleasure to hear the excited “wows and whoas” as the children were transported to the various different places.  They all really enjoyed the experience as the photos show.

Year 5 and 6 at the Peace Service

On Wednesday 19th October, children from Year 5 and Year 6 took part in the Peace Service at St Augustine’s Church, alongside children from several other local school.  The service was built around the theme of refugees.  The children put on a performance called Children of Two Worlds, which compared the lives of western children and children who are refugees.  Father David made references to their words when he spoke to the congregation.  As always, the children were a credit to the school.p1070533 p1070529

Year 1 and 2 Trip to the Adventure Farm

On 7th October Year 1 and Year 2 had a fantastic day out at the National Forest Adventure Farm.  After a tractor ride, the children went on a Bear Hunt around the forest, and made their own bear-scarers.  There was also chance to feed the farm animals.  The goats were the greediest as they even ate the pots the food came in!  After lunch they had a great time on the indoor and outdoor play equipment.  We knew it had been a good day as so many of the children fell fast asleep on the bus on the way home!  Throughout the day the children were a credit to the school and it was wonderful to see them having such fun.
