We received a lovely email from the parents of Jessica in Class 4, with some lovely out of school news.

Well Done Jess. Keep up the hard work!

We just wanted to send a quick email to let you know how hard Jess has been working in the garden recently! We’ve been having lots of building work done at home and Jess has really enjoyed making sure that the wildlife is looked after!

She planted lots of different seeds with Heidi which have now all germinated and has been busy feeding the birds every day! She has helped to build the raised beds this weekend ready for her seedlings to be planted into the bed next weekend. She’s created a great bond with a little Robin in the garden that comes and sits by her whilst she digs in the garden and even managed to get the robin to eat a millipede out of her Dads’ hand!

Jess has also created a Compost Bin and has been filling us in on all things eco! We are really proud of how focused and determined she has been with this project! We are secretly hoping that all these vegetables she’s growing may encourage her to eat some!!

We received a lovely email from Hermione’s Mum on Tuesday 17th February 2024.

Wow Hermione! You are amazing!

‘We recently attended the award ceremony for the West Midlands Cyclo-cross league where Hermione won her age category (u6) for the second year running.

She raced in 10 events between September and December, winning every single one.

Cyclo-cross is an off road discipline riding on grass, gravel and copious amounts of mud.

The wet conditions in later races meant she often had to get off her bike and push it through the mud or up steep hills.

She even lost a shoe in one race to a mud pit.

We’re always in awe of her determination and energy.’

Hermione’s big brother Joshua also worked really hard on his self belief and finished 11th in his very competitive u10 Boys section.

Well done Johsua! You are amazing too!

Pollution Pods at Edgbaston Cricket Ground

We received a lovely email from Florence’s Mum in Year 4. We always enjoy reading all of the wonderful out of school news our pupil’s take part in!

“I had to share these photos with you because it was so good!

Florence went to the pollution pods at Edgbaston cricket ground. There were 5 pods all connected by a tunnel, representing London, Norway, New Deli, Beijing and São Paulo.

As you walk through the pods you experience the climate of that particular city, with a screen that explains details on pollution levels, effects on the ozone layer, safety of being outside, etc. it was unbelievable to experience the different climates especially New Delhi where we couldn’t stay long as we couldn’t breathe or barely see!

The exhibition was a must to see, as it brings awareness to other countries’ climates in real life”.

Wow Florence! This sounds incredible. Thank you for sharing this with us.

We received a lovely picture from Lily in Year 4 and Heath in Year 2, who both went to Go Ape in the Wyre Forest over the weekend.

Well done. We are very proud of you both!

We received a lovely email from Harriett’s Mum in Year 3 on Monday 9th October 2023.

“Harriet is attending the British Freestyle Dance Championships this weekend in Blackpool.

I have attached a couple of recent pictures of Harriet at competitions and I’ll let you know how she gets on after the weekend.

This will be the first time she has been to such a large competition, so she is very nervous! As she has just turned 8 (at the weekend) she has gone up an age category, so this will also be her first time out in the under 10 category too”.

Wow Harriett, you are amazing! Good luck in your competition. We can’t wait to hear all about it!

Chief Scout’s Acorn Award

We received a lovely email from Hermione in Year 1’s Mum on Monday 20th November 2023.

“I thought I’d share that Hermione has achieved the Chief Scout’s Acorn Award – the highest award in the Squirrel scout section (4-6year old’s).

She loves attending Squirrels, at St Michael’s in Stourport, where they’ve made junk towers, designed superheroes and been on trips on a pretend airplane.

She’s also been on day camps with the other squirrels and enjoyed cooking marshmallows on the fire.

Scouts is open to both boys and girls and is a great way to make new friends and try lots of new things.”

What a fantastic achievement Hermione! Well done.
