Our KS2 Play Leaders have noticed a skipping craze recently. So they have set up a time challenge skipping zone to encourage more pupils to get involved. Who will beat the record by the end of the week?
Wolves foundation helped us understand our personal responsibility and how to apply modern British values to be model citizens in our city. We are very proud of our Y3 competition winner and he is delighted with his Wolves Goodie Bag!
Year 3 have spent time with chickens, sheep and tortoises; climbed trees and finally had lots of fun in the great play hall before another story of The Christmasaurus with cocoa before bed. “I love it here” one of them told Mrs McHale. A truly wonderful residential trip!
Wow, our chicks are changing rapidly as they mature into hens and cockerels. The egg tooth will soon disappear and tail feathers will grow. What other changes can you see? What do they need to stay healthy?

Students took part in Children’s Mental Health Week by undertaking activities throughout the week.
This year’s theme is ‘Let’s Connect’. Let’s Connect is about making meaningful connections for all, during Children’s Mental Health Week – and beyond. People thrive in communities, and this connection is vital for our wellbeing.
When we have healthy connections – to family, friends and others – this can support our mental health and our sense of wellbeing. And when our need for rewarding social connections is not met, we can sometimes feel isolated and lonely – which can have a negative impact on our mental health.
For Children’s Mental Health Week 2023, we’re encouraging people to connect with others in healthy, rewarding and meaningful ways.
Throughout the week, students looked at Mindfulness techniques and created artwork which connected together to create a whole school piece of art. The school council held a cupcake sale to raise money for CAFOD to make connections to those less fortunate. On Friday pupils enjoyed yoga sessions, learning strategies to stay calm and raise awareness for looking after their body and mind.
