OUTSTANDING

Last week we had our SIAMS inspection (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodists Schools) I am delighted to announce that we were awarded the OUTSTANDING grade. The full report is on our website. Below are just a few comments made by the inspector.

‘Embedded Christian values shape the life and ethos of the school. This has a direct influence on the excellent standards of behaviour, positive attitudes and high quality relationships enjoyed across the school.’

‘As one pupil described, ‘Jesus made such a big difference to the world, we can easily make a difference to our own community if, together, we follow Jesus’ example’

‘The school’s inclusive approach gives opportunity to all, irrespective of background, culture or physical ability.’

‘The school makes a huge investment in the personal development and welfare of its pupils, ensuring that pastoral care is exemplary. Unique in the sight of God, and as an embodiment of the school’s vision, each is ‘valued, challenged and nurtured to aspire to reach their full potential’.

It has been a very busy week for the children with the launch of their new topics. Year 6 have been learning how to survive as cavemen and have been building shelters. Year 5 have had a visit from the Space Dome which filled the hall and has left them thinking about the universe around them. Year 4 have emersed themselves in live sketching of flowers inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau. Year 3 can tell you that the human body has 206 bones as they have launched their science topic with identifying and naming these bones.

Year 2 have had a mysterious visit from Paddington Bear who left a trail of distruction with abandoned marmalade sandwiches in the classroom! Year 1 dressed as fairytale characters for the day and have produced some wonderful writing. The Reception classes have had a visit from our ‘Lollypop’ lady and have been busy designing her a new coat that had to be waterproof, reflective and warm. Our Pre-school have been enjoying their nature walks around the school grounds.

This week in Year 4…12.1.18

This week we have been learning how to draw flowers in art and learning more about the artist Henri Rousseau who loved painting pictures of plants and flowers. In science, we made telephones using plastic cups and string. We did this to test whether sound vibrations can travel through a solid. Our classes have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons, including who they were and where they came from. Did you know that the Anglo-Saxons were made up of tribes who used to fight each other? They were also very good farmers and excellent craftsmen. The Anglo-Saxons liked making objects from wood, as well as intricate jewellery. In English, we have been learning the story of Beowulf – a brave warrior who defeated the terrifying monster Grendel.

Paddington has left the building!

Today Year 2 said goodbye to Paddington, he visited over the weekend and returned last night to collect the marmalade sandwiches that the children made, along with a letter and map that the children created and some personal messages from the children. He left one last note to say goodbye, but we’re hoping for a postcard when he arrives in London! We’re pleased to say he made less mess during his last visit.

Bye Paddington, we hope to see you again soon!

  

Black Country Museum in the snow!

Black Country Museum in the snow!

At the end of last term, Year 2 went on a trip to the Black Country Museum, as a celebration of our Victorian theme, “Rags. Riches and Royalty!” Our trip would have been exciting enough but it was made even more special because it had snowed! The museum looked magical and we had a wonderful time; for some children, it was the first time they had experienced snow that was so deep!

During our day, we experienced a lesson in a Victorian school, met Victorian guides who told us about their houses and even tried traditionally cooked chips! We definitely needed a warm lunch after walking around in the snow.

It was an amazing day that children, parents and staff alike will never forget!
