Young Voices – Year 4 and 5

What can I say…what an amazing trip Year 4 and 5 had at the Young Voices event on Monday. It is something that I am sure will be a lasting memory for the children. They sang with over 5,000 children at the Birmingham Genting Arena and what a sound they created! We’ve had such positive feedback from parents that were able to attend the event and watch the concert in the audience and the children have all commented so enthusiastically about the experience too. This is something we plan to do annually as a trip for Year 4 and 5 as we feel it is such a beneficial trip for the children.   Keep an eye out for more information in the summer term about next year’s trip.

Year 1 – drones session with Mr Sanderson   Recently updated !

Year 1 had a very exciting start to the week when Mr Sanderson came in with a set of drones. They enjoyed using their coding skills to make the drones move in different ways. Seeing the drones flip over caused much excitement and the children demonstrated excellent IT skills.

 


Maths problem solving day   Recently updated !

The children thoroughly enjoyed the problem solving day on Thursday. Part of the day consisted of each class undertaking a series of interactive maths challenges.

The mission for the juniors was to crack the code to stop the invasion of Robotrons.

The infants had to tidy up using their maths skills before the Queen arrived, to save the prince from being turned to stone!

It was a true adventure for the children involving practical, hands-on maths. It promoted team work, mathematical reasoning and problem solving in a fun way.   Thank you very much to the PTFA for their generous contribution towards the cost of this event.
