World War II Day
At the start of October, Year 6 enjoyed a World War 2 experience. The Royal Mail kindly funded the morning where two very knowledgeable visitors shared their experiences and artefacts. The children all looked the part, with fantastic costumes- they took part in a Home Guard drill, experienced lessons wearing a gas mask and heard first-hand accounts of the German perspective and of course, they got to handle a few exciting weapons!
A brilliant day was had by all!
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their week long residential at Shugborough. Many of the children had never spent time away from home overnight before so it was a new experience. They were lucky enough to take part in many outdoor adventurous activities including caving, archery, night walks, rock climbing, orineteering, BMXing, blinfold trail and a Crystal Maze challenge. The week focused on team building exercises and focsued on letting the children 'Try something new' to contribute towards their Personal Development work within school.
Big Bang Day!
All of our year 6 children were invited along to John Taylor Free School with all the other schools in the MAT for a day of Science! They used robotics, programmable toys and VR headsets. The children also met visitors from Wolverhampton University who showed them forensic science, static machines, slime and a planetarium amongst many other things.
