Exciting Experiences!

We love learning, especially through experiences and trips, and our pupils have had some wonderful opportunities over the course of the term, to further develop their understanding and spark their interests!

We often join with our Federation Friends from Yardley Hastings Primary School, and our Early Years classes were visited by Little City as part of their People Who help Us topic. Before the end of term, our Lower Key Stage 2 classes will be visited by Explorer Dome as part of their Awesome Earth topic.

Our eldest pupils are focussing on World War II, and recently visited Bletchley Park to learn about the role that it played during World War II. They took part in a simulated intelligence operation to further their understanding.

Pupils in Years 1 and 2 went on a long coach adventure to London, to visit the Transport Museum, as part of their Tremendous Transport topic. We had a fantastic day, and the children handled their big adventure incredibly well. The museum staff commented on their wonderful behaviour and we were very proud of them! To continue with the transport theme, the class were delighted to be visited by a helicopter! The pupils and staff thought that this was very, very cool.

These experiences really help to develop the curiosity and excitement for learning in our pupils, and this is also evident in our day to day classroom learning and when we have visitors in school. Hopefully parents and carers also see this passion for learning at home too!

Join us at our Open Evening

We have so much planned for term 2, including trips and experiences, sporting events and clubs, and chances to perform. The weather may have turned, but there is still brightness and positivity in our school, and across the Federation.

The School Council were really grateful for all of the donations for the Hope Centre’s Hope for Harvest campaign. They are very aware that people in our wider community may be struggling, and these donations can make a real difference. We know that the Hope Centre was very grateful too.

Children and staff all found our Global Focus week about Gender Equality to be a very interesting topic, and provided lots of opportunities for thought and discussion.

This month, we are holding an Open Evening, to share our school with potential parents and pupils, so that they can see what we have to offer, and our approach to school experiences for our pupils. There is no need to book a place- please just come along and join us. Our Open Evening is taking place on Tuesday 8th November, from 6.00-7.00pm. We hope to see you there!
