Last week, Year 5 had the exciting opportunity to go to the National Space Centre in Leicester. They explored the amazing Rocket Tower by climbing 244 flights of stairs and investigated the six space-themed galleries. They even watched a show called ‘Astronaut’ in the UK’s largest Planetarium.
On Tuesday 28th November, pupils from Year 2 and 3 attended a Dodgeball Festival at Aldersley Stadium. Pupils from St Teresa’s were led through a number of drills / practices to help them learn the rules of the game, skills and technique. The whole emphasis of the day was to remember – to have fun and to participate as opposed to winning.
Key Stage 2 pupils met Wolverhampton’s local MP Pat McFadden. Pat McFadden spoke about his role as an MP before inviting the children to ask questions. The children asked excellent questions regarding education, hospitals, etc. Pat Mcfadden was so impressed with the pupils at St Teresa’s, he even sent a letter congratulating the pupils on their range of questions.
