Battle of the Brains Event

Battle of the Brains took place on Thursday 16th March 2017 at Grace Academy, Darlaston. Six schools took part. Firstly children had to work as a team to make a picture with the theme of success using materials won in a relay race. The teams were then split into their individual subject areas which included Literacy, Maths, Science, Computing, History and Performing Arts. Finally the teams came back together for a buzzer round on general knowledge. All the children had a great time and results were very close, with only 10 points between first and sixth place. We finished 5th!

Year 1 visit to Weston Park

The Year One children enjoyed their visit to Weston Park. They enjoyed exploring homes from the past, dressing up in old fashioned clothes and playing games from the past. They even got to make their own cup and ball game to take home and share with their family. 

Police Visit

The children enjoyed the visit from the Police force. They explored inside a police van, heard the siren and met a police sniffer dog. The children in Reception will continue to learn about people who help us in our community over the next couple of weeks.

Current School Projects

The whole school is taking part in a variety of A*STARS challenges throughout the school year. Year 5 will soon take part in the speed awareness challenge and Year 3 are taking part in TOGO NOGO.
