Jane Considine 25

On Tuesday 3rd July, we were delighted to invite Jane Considine - author, teaching guru and all-roudn good egg - into our school.  Whilst she was here, Jane had a tour of our school, looking at how we were teaching English (much of which is based around Jane's published methods) and met our wonderful children.  She demanded to spend time with the pupils and after hearing something special about each of them, shared a story with them.

Jane really enjoyed her visit and said "In every corner of this small and beautiful school was stunning writing demonstration, vocabulary prioritised and reading passionately taught." She even shed happy tears after her visit!  High praise for the school, pupils and staff and lovely recognition for all the hard work the staff have put in to turn our school into a positive, vibrant environment for learning.

We hope that Jane (and other authors) will make further visits to our wonderful school in the future.

 

On Wednesday 20th June, the whole of our school visited the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley.  This visit brought together lots of the leanring that the children have been doing this term on their topic "Wow! Look how we've changed.".  Our eldest pupils have been studying the Victorian period and the changes that brought, whilst our younger children have been looking at how canals have been used over time, beginning in this period.  The pupils had an amazing day, seeing lots of living history and enjoying learing about the past - they even had the chance to see an old silent-movie starring Charlie Chaplin.  It was a great day out and we would like to thank those of you who were able to contribute towards the cost of the trip whether directly in response to our parentmail or through attending events led by our 'Friends' group.  It was certainly a day where memories were made.

We aspire to keep our children safe, at school and online...
