Gym Fest

On Tuesday 23rd June, Green 2 went to a 'Gym Fest' at Meadows First School. They took part in a range of different activities and worked with children from other schools. They really enjoyed playing on the vault and on the spring board.


Here is a question to think about at home:

If you were a time traveller, where would you travel to and what would you want to find out about?


Bring in any answers you want to share at school!

Challenge Week

In challenge week the children really enjoyed creating a number of things for 'The Malvern Show'. We decorated glass bottles, went to Blackwell court, made mini beasts and visited the forest. The children then put on an assembly to all parents! They have lots of fun!


The year 3 children have really enjoyed their swimming lessons this year and have all managed to achieve a stage! Well done!

Play to Learn

This year the year 3 children have really enjoyed learning the violin and cornett in our 'Play to Learn' topic. They have been able to play a number of different tunes and will be performing their final concert soon!

Tri Golf Tournament

On 6th May 2015 eight Key Stage Two children took part in a Tri Golf festival at Bromsgrove Golf Centre. Here they took part in various activities and also had the opportunity to go on the driving range. They competed against other local teams.

Our Church Crawl

On Thursday 16th April year 3 and 4 went on a church crawl around Bromsgrove. We visited the Baptist church and the Methodist Centre in the morning. Here we looked at different Christian symbols and also saw a baptistry. We then had lunch in Sanders park. In the afternoon we looked at St John's Church and compared this to the others we had seen in the morning. We had a lovely day and enjoyed listening to people from the churches tell us all about why their church is special.

Our New Summer Term Topics

This term our topic is World War Two

We will be finding out all about what life was like for a child in WWII.


In Science we will be looking at Forces. We will learn all about the different forces and complete some experiments.

We will then be looking at plants and what they need to survive.


In PE, we will be learning a WWII dance and developing our catching skills and playing games such as netball and tennis. We will then look at athletics and complete some outdoor adventurous activites, for example orienteering. 


In RE, we will be learning about Angels.


In ICT, we will be looking at using the computers to compase a piece of music.


Some of green 1 and green 2 will be going swimming!


On Tuesday 10th March the year 3 children went to Parkside for the afternoon. They took part in a multi-skills afternoon run by the sports leaders at Parkside. They had a lovely afternoon and showed some super skills during the activities.

Our visit from the stone giant

Last term, we had a visit from the stone giant. He came into school and left his footprints behind!

We looked at some instructions of how to trap him. We acted them out together.

Finally, we researched a new mythical creature and wrote our own instructions for how to capture it.
