Year 3 and 4 visit The Black Country Muesum

Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic day at The Black Country Museum on Friday 23rd June.

They were treated to a Victorian school day were Mrs Mansell-Shelton was told off for wearing nail varnish and Mrs Jones for talking, both got ‘the cane’. They learnt how school children did handwriting and learning times tables by rote. Tierney got shouted at for slouching. Mr Griffins was very strict!

Mr Griffins the Victorian Teacher commented on how they were the best children he had had in his Victorian School.

They then enjoyed a picnic and tried some Black Country Chips curtesy of Mrs Holden, which went down a treat!

Hard hats at the ready … We were then given a guided tour of the old coal mines where children learnt all about life as a child in the coal mines.

They also got to visit the back to back houses, pharmacy and the old fashioned sweet shop where they indulged in Kali (sherbet style sugar) and lollies.

Year 3 Class Assembly – Henry VIII

Friday 16th June, Year 3 performed their class assembly to the school and their parents.

Year 3’s topic this term is the ‘Riotous Royals’ where they have been learning all about Henry VIII and Queen Victoria. The assembly was based on Henry VIII and his 6 wives.

The class have also been reading a fabulous book called ‘Me, the Queen and Christopher’ which is all about a little girl called Freya who gets invited to meet the Queen and have tea. The day is full of surprises for Freya including the Queen falling over, eating beans on toast and making cup cakes in the Queens private quarters.

Well done Year 3 you did amazing !

African Children’s Choir – Stratford Arts Centre

A group of children, from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 along with Miss O’Boyle and Miss Foster, took part in a concert with the African Children’s Choir on Wednesday 7th June at Stratford Arts Centre.

The African Children’s Choir is composed of African children, aged 7 to 10 years old. Many have lost one or both parents through the devastation of war, famine and disease. They represent all the children of a continent and they demonstrate the potential of African children to become strong leaders for a better future in their land.

The primary goal of the Choir is to raise awareness of the need of destitute and orphaned children in Africa and to raise funds for continued development and support of the African Children’s Choir Programmes. The Choir’s international educational endeavour provides unique training for the children. Once Choir members have completed a concert tour, they will return to their homelands with the tools necessary for bettering their future.

They all sang their hearts out and did the school proud not only with their singing but with their behaviour too.

Well done to everyone who took part !

T Rex visits Henley

Well the children were in for the surprise of their lives today, when ‘T Rex’ visited them.  As you can see from the pictures

T Rex surprised them on the playground this morning. He was a naughty T Rex trying to eat his keepers hat and knocking him over with his tail. He had quite a roar too.

This visit organised by the PTA was all part of our ‘Natural History Week’. Each class have been busy learning about fossils, hunting dinosaurs and creating their own dinosaurs as well as lots of other exciting things.

Thank you to the PTA for a wonderful experience.
