Holy Trinity Church

Today the children attended a workshop provided by kaleidoscope. They attended the Holy Trinity Church at Dawley and covered workshops to do with Morals and values, Christin aid, asking and answering questions. They took park in drama activities, discussions, games as well as art, for the children to understand the importance of helping others and themselves.

Arts week

What a week we have had!

The children have been learning a range of artistic skills as well as the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. From his work they have been inspired to create both 2D and 3D pieces of art work, using the theme ‘Woodlands’
From researching, forageing, designing and then creating using clay, paints and of course natural materials, I think you will agree the finished pieces are amazing!

Well done class 🙂



Today we have been enjoying the run up to Easter, Year 5 have taken part in an Easter egg and spoon races as well as an Easter egg hunt, where the chldren all had a clue to solve before finding their egg.

Chinese New Year

Today, Year 5 have been celebrating Chinese New Year. In class, we have been learning about how each year is represented by an animal from learning the Chinese Zodiac story. We have also had a treat, by sharing some Chinese fruit (lychees) and nibbles (prawn crackers).  After, we then opened our fortune cookies and shared our fortunes with the class.
