Our year 5 and year 6 classes recently visited Whitemoor lakes. We all had a brilliant time, and made some fantastic memories!
We had the chance to try our hand at:
- high ropes
- challenge course
- rock climbing
- problem solving
- and we even had a camp fire!
Years 5 and 6 recently had a lovely time climbing up and down the Waseley hills.
We went on a challenging trek, kindly guided by Mr Cadney, through beautiful woods; up and down slippy hills; round ancient ponds; over tricky stiles and through lots and lots of mud!
This trip has helped us to better understand contour maps and will help loads with our mountains topic in Geography!
"We all had a brilliant day out and really enjoyed our outdoor learning adventure!"
We are very proud that nine of our Year 6 children made the Sacrament of Confirmation with the children of St Joseph’s
The service took place at St Joseph and St Helen Church in Cotteridge and was celebrated by Canon David Evans, it was a very special occasion.
The children showed understanding during our Confirmation preparation and reverence during the service. We know that
the Holy Spirit will continue to guide and support them as they move onto secondary school in September.
Rocktopus were in school to teach the whole school about the importance of sport and exercise.
We wrote a song at the start of the day as a whole school, and then each phase wrote their own song. We teamed up with year 5 to write our song and create sporty dance moves to go with it.
At the end of the day we performed our song for the rest of the school, and enjoyed watching them perform their songs!
It was a great day!!
Whole School Retreat Day
The God who speaks
On Friday the 6th of March we had a whole school retreat day led by Dan and Emily from One Life Music. We began the day by meeting in the hall and learning about the word of the Lord and how important this was in our lives. Dan asked us to think about our favourite bible story or parable and what those meant to us in our daily lives.
We then went back to our classes and completed some lovely work on bible quotes and bible stories. Again, we shared our ideas about the quotes and how God speaks to us using the scripture. Each of us chose two quotes which spoke to us and where important in our lives.
We ended the day with a beautiful collective worship and each class brought down their favourite quotes. We also learned three new songs which we sang at the end of the day. It was a wonderful day where we had the opportunity to take time and listen to the Lord’s word.
