NEWS & EVENTS
On Wednesday, the whole school took part in our Bioblitz Day with Matt Cox. The weather was kind to us and the children had a full day of activities. Reception made mouse houses, Year 1 and 2 went minibeast hunting, Year 3 tracked large mammals, Year 4 looked at trees, Year 5 did a grassland survey and Year 6 took part in stream dipping. It was lovely to see all the fantastic learning taking place and how enthusiastic all the children were. It is also a fantastic opportunity to monitor what is happening in our Environmental Area and ensure we continue to sustain our valuable environment.
Year 6 Manor Adventure 2021
Year 6 visited Culmington Manor Adventure in Shropshire. Just before we left we had to write down some goals that we wanted to achieve during our trip. Some of these included bonding new friendships, learning new skills, overcoming fears and building our self-esteem. We stayed for 5 days and had lots of fun!!! Each day we had 5 excellent activities to participate in, including bouldering, low ropes, rifles, canoeing and kayaking, survival, obstacle course, orienteering, archery, hill walk, climbing, abseiling, bivouac, blind trail, Manor Olympics, fencing, camp craft and the underground maze. These activities helped us keep fit and healthy whilst having great fun. Manor adventure also has many of wonderful facilities such as the spectacular views, the playing fields and the main manor house. Dozens of tasty treats awaited us on plates at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Our rooms were brilliant and the beds were comfortable. There were 4 rooms in total. Two girls’ rooms, Ironbridge and Wenlock, and two boys’ rooms, Wrekin and Coverdale. The rooms had bunk beds and included an ensuite with two showers. The room inspections gave us the opportunity to get creative and have fun, such as coming up with poems, comedy sketches, songs and plays, whilst ensuring our rooms weren't a complete DISASTER!!! Year 6 really enjoyed this trip and want to say a big thank you to all the teachers who contributed to our trip!!!!!

Reception Warwick Castle
Freddie said "I loved the trip to Warwick Castle! I really liked the bird show. Some birds went really close over our heads. I saw TWO long drop toilets in the castle too! They go into the moat!"
Avani told us that "I loved meeting Zog and playing the 'Sir Gaddabout says...' game with Sir Gaddabout and Princess Pearl. I really liked the obstacle course too!'
The Reception trip to Warwick Castle was fantastic! The children were really well behaved and coped very well with meeting Princess Pearl, Sir Gaddabout and Zog. As with every trip, lunch is always a highlight, but we were treated to a fantastic bird show whilst we ate. We walked around the mound, through the maze, into the castle to find the secret door and the two long drop toilets and we had a good run about on the pageant field.
Year 3 Lunt Fort
When we went to Lunt Fort we saw old, interesting artefacts. We saw a Roman that wore metal and iron armour with a real super sharp sword.
Lunt Fort was made out of turf and tall wooden strips all around the fort.
At the end of our trip we battled against each other with wooden swords and a shield.

Year 2 Mary Arden’s Farm, Stratford
Year 2 visited Mary Arden's Farm and we had a brilliant day looking at the animals especially the piglets! We made lavender bags, did some gardening, and visited Mary Arden's house.

It is important that children take the same approach to online safety when using home learning resources as they do when in school. It is also important that parents are aware of the resources available and understand their role in monitoring and supporting their children during online home learning. The following resources provide guidance for parents and can be found on the safeguarding page of our website:

Did you know that our school is the catchment school for Baginton? Whilst we do have children in school from the village, we do wonder if other families in Baginton are aware that this would be their natural catchment school. We are trying to advertise ourselves but if you do live in Baginton we’d be grateful if you could pass the information onto other families with children.
Sports Day – Thursday 1st July
KS1 and Reception spectators are invited to school from 10am for approx. one hour and KS2 from 1.30pm.
