School Councillors and Deputies had a fantastic day out at Mount Pleasant School Farm today. They received a warm welcome from Idris, Nina and Nicky and they immediately got to work!
Group 1 were in charge of prepping the vegetable soup for lunch learning how to use the 'claw' and 'bridge' grip when chopping carrots, leeks, tomatoes, onions, runner beans and cabbages. Group 2 were in charge of prepping the fruit salad for pudding which included chopping strawberries, grapes, apples, pears, pineapples and many more! Teachers and children absolutely loved lunch and even asked for seconds!
Throughout the day, children enjoyed spending time with each other and feeding the sheep and chickens. They loved meeting Perky the pig and all of the cows in the barn. They even saw a calf only a few hours old!
Everyone had a brilliant time and the staff at the farm even said that our children are a credit to our school. Well done school councillors!

Year 6 had an amazing final trip visiting Laches Wood. They tested their nerves, stepped out of their comfort zones and faced their fears!  A fantastic day had by all, making memories with super team work! Proud teachers!

We had a very exciting day in a Space Dome!
The children learnt all about the planets and our solar system. They heard lots of ancient stories about the constellations of the stars and loved being able to see the constellations right in front of their eyes.
The children learnt about the sun and how the Earth and other planets in our solar system move around it.
Did you know that the sun is the size of 1.3 million Earths?

Year 4 had a fantastic time at Birmingham Sealife Centre. There were many highlights of our visit such as watching the feeding of Gentoo Penguins, getting up close with giant rays and Reef Sharks in the Ocean Tunnel, jumping aboard the Polar Express in the 4D cinema and a surprise visit from Santa! The children behaved impeccably and were a credit to our school.

Year 5 became explorers at the Space Centre. They had fantastic opportunities to test their coding skills through the challenge of moving a mars buggy. Eyes were wide with wonder in the planetarium as they went into outer space, exploring the galaxies - it was as if we were really there! It was an incredible day and children were truly in awe of all that they experienced and saw.

Nursery children travelled together on a steam train in search of Santa. They enjoyed a picnic lunch, sang Christmas songs and saw elephants, a rhino and deer when passing the safari park.
Then.... Santa found us on the train!

Despite the miserable weather, Year 1 had a fantastic time at the Black Country Living Museum today. We braved the rain and had a walk around the museum where the boys were very polite and allowed the girls to enter the buildings first. We also enjoyed visiting St James's Infant school where the strict headmaster showed us what it would be like if we were at school in 1912. Children certainly prefer school in the 21st century after experiencing handwriting with hooks and hangers on a slate and having hand inspections. Before the end of the day, children were able to learn about toys from the past and had the opportunity to play with a wide range of old and modern toys. They were amazed to learn that poor children in the past would only have had one or two wooden toys to play with... if they were lucky!

Year 4 had a fantastic afternoon with the Virtual Reality Team learning about the different layers of the ocean and the animals that they would find in each layer. They even went down to the trenches! Great fun was had by all!

Year 2 have had a fantastic day at Legoland and have been fantastic adventurers. Children have competed a range of challenges to collect their explorer badges just like Russell from Up.
Children enjoyed building and racing cars, watching a 4D movie and creating their own hot air balloon. 
Children’s behaviour was outstanding and they were all a credit to our school.

Year 6 have had a lovely day learning about the chocolate adventure of Cadbury World. Through an informative talk about the Mayans and Aztecs the children have learnt lots of interesting facts. We have tried Yummy chocolate with a choice of fillings and have been able to play on the park. The 4d cinema experience was brilliant and the children's behaviour was outstanding.
