Street Dance Club Group One

Over the last half term, fifteen children have been enjoying learning and perfecting their moves with Stuart from All Sorts of Performing Arts.  This Friday they will showcase their Street Dance routines to their parents and families.  They have all worked really hard and enjoyed taking part.  Have a look at some of their new skills here:

Good Luck for Friday!!!

Giraffe Sculpture – complete!!!

Mrs Breakwell and our design team have had a busy week finishing off the painting of our giraffe sculpture.  The rest of the children and adults throughout the school have also now put on the final touches, and we waved him “goodbye” on Wednesday.  Take a look at what has been going on this week:

Jeff (our sculpture) will be returned to Crowngate shopping centre, to become part of the “Worcester Stands Tall” sculpture trail, which will begin in July to raise money for St. Richard’s Hospice.  

iPad Safari Trail

Year Three had great fun this afternoon taking part in a “Safari Trail” to guess the teachers’ favourite animals.  Having made a prediction about which animal they thought matched each teacher, the children then used our iPads to play films linked to the pictures to find out the answers.

Millie got all seven correct!!

Take a look at them having a go at the trail here:

The trail was created by Flynn in Year Six, who has worked with me to create the ‘auras’.  These are films which can be embedded into images or used against real objects.  I would like to offer him HUGE congratulations on creating this amazing trail for the school.

I would also like to thank our PTA, who have made it possible for us to have a set of iPads in the school by funding these, the protective cases and the charging trolley.

I hope the rest of the school enjoy following the trail as much as Year Three did.

Safari Rangers Day

On Thursday 3rd May we were lucky enough to have a visit from West Midlands Safari Education Team.  Years One to Five spent the morning finding out facts and looking at artefacts about giraffes.  Take a look at some of the brilliant things they did below:

We looked at a giraffe skull and teeth, as well as a skull of a lion (the giraffe’s predator).  Did you know a giraffe’s eyes are about the size of golf balls?

Some children took the “giraffe stride challenge”.  Do you think that your stride is bigger than a giraffe’s?

Take a look at how long their tongues are and what a giraffe tail looks like:

The children all enjoyed learning so many interesting facts from the team – a big thank you to them!!

We also dressed up as animals, zoo keepers, farmers and park rangers.  Take a look at some of the brilliant outfits here:

I would like to thank all of the children for making the effort to dress up for the day and to support St. Richard’s Hospice, as part of the Worcester Stands Tall project.

Thank you!! Mrs Baker

Giraffe Painting – Worcester Stands Tall

Our design team are now well underway in the painting of our giraffe sculpture.  Under the guidance of Mrs Breakwell they have been working on creating the parts of the final design.  Take a look at their progress here:

A huge WELL DONE!! for their efforts so far.  The rest of the school can look forward to adding their very own finger print over the next two weeks.

Watch out here for more updates.  Mrs Baker
