Happy New Year

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas. We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday 7th January. Ready for our next Adventure. Please don’t forget to bring in your P.E. and Forest School kit as we will be doing these lessons during the first week back.

Cluster Carols

Years 1, 2 , 3 and 4 had a lovely afternoon at Tibberton First School, taking part in our Annual Cluster Carols with Hindlip and Tibberton schools.

It was a lovely  start to our Christmas festivities.

Children in Need 2018

Wow! Pudsey came to visit us. We wore our spots and bright clothes and gave him all the coins we had collected.

We loved the cakes at break too!

Space adventure

Year 1 had a fantastic day at the National Space Centre.

We started the day in the planetarium, we watched an amazing show about Astronauts and how they survive in space. After this we went out to look at all the interactive hands on exhibits. We started with the planets we saw a giant earth model. Looked through a telescope and even drove a Mars rover.

After lunch we went into the rocket tower we could not believe how big they were. We rode the lift to the very top and saw a bit of the actual moon. We also saw a 1960’s house we were amazed that TV’s had no colour and telephones had a cord. We then went down to explore life in space, we built a rocket and went inside the International Space Station. We even saw a space toilet. The last part we discovered was the universe. We went into the star gallery, met some aliens, discovered gravity and a blackhole. We also as a special treat got to see the Mars Rover BRUNO that will be going into Space next year.

Mr Postans and Mrs Horton and all the staff were very proud of all of Year 1. You were a complete credit to Ombersley.

What a fantastic first half term in year 1.

We have discovered an alien and helped her to learn about Earth. We have been on lots of forest adventures discovering minibeasts and built some outstanding dens. We have learnt to work as a team in our PE lessons and produced two dance routines. We have been to church and performed amazingly well making our teachers very proud. To end the term we put on our outfits and had a big Halloween party.


We can’t wait until next term. We are blasting off to space and putting on Yr1’s very first production.

Welcome to Year 1

What a busy first few weeks back.

We have all settled really well into Year 1 and are really enjoying our topic of space. Last week we came to school and discovered a spaceship had crash landed into our forest. Yr1 went out to investigate and discovered the ship belonged to a little alien called Beegu. Since then we have been trying to find her around school. But with no luck so far. By week 3 of the school year and we have already done our Harvest Festival and Mr Postans and Mrs Horton were so proud of how we did.
