Work whilst learning from home

We have been blown away by the response to home learning this week and the effort children are putting into their work. They have been writing a newspaper report on the world's worst punihsments, as part of our history topic and they have also been designing, making and evaluating a healthy pizza as part of our Design and Technology project. Here are some examples of the children's work. Keep up the good work! 

Our body’s pumping machine
This term is all about our hearts! Our Science topic is the body pump and we started the half term with a Topic day. We looked at the different components of the circulatory system, how to label the chambers of the heart and we even had a go at making our own blood containing white blood cells, red blood cells, plasma and platelets. Have a look at some of our models of the heart below;


On Tuesday 17th December we held the official opening of our sports hall.  Governors, neighbours and parents were all invited to see our brand new sports hall.  Each year group produced a display showcasing their amazing curriculum work and students from each year group were on hand to talk about their work and answer any questions. Here are some photos of the year 5 display.






Mystery Jewellery Quarter Visitors

Week beginning 25th November 2019

This week we have had some very special visitors to year 5. On Monday three Jewellery Quarter experts came to see us and allowed us to investigate all sorts of things in preparation for our trip this week.

We looked at different trades in the jewellery Quarter such as The Coffin Works, The Pen Industry and J.W. Evans' Silverware buisiness. We got to handle real artefacts from each of these industries and we became time-travelling detectives to work out what different objects were and what they were used for. Have a look at us being historians below!

P.S. Did you know that at the height of the pen-making industry in Birmingham, women would make up to 18,000 pen nips a day!




Egg-cellent Holiday Projects!

Week beginning 4th November 2019
