On Thursday 30th January, a DJ called Nathan Dawe came to visit our school. We were able to ask questions about his job and how he became a DJ. We also asked about things that he enjoys and what his school life was like. It was interesting to find out that he played the trumpet when he was younger, like a number of children at our school do.
On Friday 24th January, Reception and Year 4 met to celebrate Chinese New Year. We learnt the story behind the Chinese zodiac, we looked at decorations and watched videos of Chinese dragon and lion dances. We also sampled prawn crackers and fortune cookies.
On Friday 17th January, Year 4 had the opportunity to visit Walsall Art Gallery, along with a class of Year 5 children from Reedswood E-ACT Primary Academy, as part of a Schools Linking project.
During the day, children from both classes mixed together to carry out a number of different activities such as drawing, Plasticine modelling and drawing their own designs on polystyrene tiles and using different choices of coloured inks and paper to create prints.
Both classes learnt new artistic skills, explored and discussed a variety of art work created by a number of artists and created new friendships during the day.
We look forward to working with the children from Reedswood again later in the year.
On Monday 13th January, Year 4 were visited by Bloxwich Fire and Rescue team who came to teach us about fire and road safety. It was extremely helpful and we learnt lots of important information about how to prevent fires and other accidents and what to do if there was a fire.
