A huge WELL DONE to all of our Year 2 and Year 6 pupils who have completed their SATs examinations over the last two weeks. They have worked extremely hard and we are very proud of them!
We are incredibly proud of our golfers! They all represented our school with pride showing great team spirit and consideration to others. All of the young leaders that worked with our team commented on how well behaved they were and how the children acted on advise to improve their technique.
Reception really enjoyed our visit to Rays Farm; here we continued our learning about animals and the farm. During the day we had chance to visit the Fairy tale Forest, where we were able to see the Crooked Man and his house, Humpty Dumpty and lots of wild garlic growing amongst the trees. Many children thought it smelt of garlic bread! We were able to see and stroke many farm animals, including sheep, donkeys, goats and horses! We also got to see lots of unusual animals, such as alpacas, reindeer, owls and a llama called Carlos! We saw many young farm animals too, were able to spot baby kids, chicks and lambs. Our teachers all said we were very well behaved, unlike some of the naughty goats that escaped to follow us around the farm! We had lots of fun during our visit to the farm and learned even more. The children’s behaviour and enthusiasm was outstanding throughout the day, children shared their experiences and new knowledge confidently in discussions back at school.
This week we have seen huge changes. Firstly, the caterpillars all became chrysalis, and hung from the top of the lid. This was the sign to us that it was time to move into the chrysalis station, and go into the net habitat. Mrs BC carefully moved them over. One chrysalis fell from the lid at the start of the week but we have researched it, and it should be ok if we lie it on a paper towel inside.
At the end of week 3, the chrysalis have started to hatch! We had the loveliest day, watching them emerge with crinkled wings and then rest after their big adventure. Everyone was so excited and we couldn't believe how quickly they came out of the cocoon. The one on the paper towel hatched at 8.45am and we all saw it! Ben has named the first butterfly Barry, so we have named the other three Gary, Harry and Larry. Larry has really struggled to come out of the cocoon, and might not survive, which makes us a little sad.
We have learnt that butterflies release red liquid called meconium but this is a sign they are healthy. They also need sugar water (nectar) to drink, so Karammani helped put some in the habitat on a flower. Mrs BC will buy them some fruit for their snack tomorrow - apparently they love oranges!
We think we might release them in a couple of days, but we are hoping the other chrysalis will hatch soon too. His name is Colin!
Classes 13 and 15 enjoyed their trip to Aldersley. Both classes enjoyed carrying out science experiments. Class 13 were able to use the microscopes to look at onion cells. Class 15 looked at how metals react with certain acids.
Well done to Rithik, Kai, Zaara and Katelyn who participated in the Year 4 Mathematics Challenge at Wolverhampton Girls' High School! Our four mathematicians enjoyed mental challenges and logical problems whilst competing against 70 other teams! We are still awaiting official results but are extremely proud of the effort and focus of them all!

Year 5 had a visit from a Police Community Support Officer. She talked to the children about safety and making the right choices. She also helped the children develop an awareness of legal consequences for 10 year olds.
Year 5 have been visiting Aldersley High School as part of our transition programme. They have been cooking - making cookies and pizza and bread. They will also be having French lessons.

Year 3 have had an exciting delivery. We have received 5 caterpillars in a pot, to look after. We are keeping a close watch, and doing lots of research to find out all about caring for them.
To read our diary entries select 'Curriculum' on the Homepage and click 'Science' or look on Year 3 page. We will update every few days.
Shannon has written our first diary entry.
The caterpillars had grown a bit bigger and there were more bits at the bottom. Four of them were at the top, one of them was at the bottom, lying down in a web.
