Ancient Egyptians

This term we are learning abut the Ancient Eyptians. We started by being ‘archeologists’ and looking at ‘artefacts’ from Hartlebury museum. We drew them and predicted what they were and what they might have been used for. 

Violin Lessons

We have started whole class violin lesson with Mr Aitchison from the high school. He makes us play rhythm games and sing songs first, we are getting quicker! We have learnt the strings on the violin and viola and are beginning to use the bow. We are hoping to play in a concert later in the year. We all love it -thank you Mr Aitchison

ICT at Westacre Middle School

Mr Barber showed us some programmes we could use at school or at home, we really like Hour of Code – especially the Minecraft game. We were able to programme our own algorithms and debug if the programme had to be changed. Some of us also got to use the ipads.
Thankyou to Matthew Howard and Rosie Bell for helping us all afternoon. We had a great time and we will have some ideas to take back to school.
Thank you Mr Barber.

Well done Flyn, Harriet, Georgina, Jogiya, Jacob, Olivia, Jake and Elliot.

STEM visit to Westacre

We had a great time at Westacre learning about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We started with a maths trail, then had a challenge to produce a trampoline fun park from recycled materials.The best bit was looking inside our bodies and at ‘lungs’through the Virtual Reality headsets. After we measured our heartbeat before and after we got to use the amazing sports equipment in the hall. Thank you Mr Barber and the other staff for the experience


Young Voices

What an amazing day and night we had at Young Voices.

The coach took us to The Resorts World in Birmingham. After eating our lunch and finding our seats in the huge arena, we spent the afternoon practicing our songs and dances with nearly 7000 other school children.

We performed with some big stars including Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet and Charlene Hector from Basement Jaxx.

On the evening we performed in front of a big audience including our parents and families. It was a fantastic experience; we all enjoyed every minute of it!

Our teachers were so very proud of us!

Ombersley Remembers WW1 – Church Service

On Thursday 15th November we took part in our final event for the Ombersley Remembers Project. We were joined by Hindlip, Tibberton and Sytchampton schools, the Ombersley Handbell Ringers and members of the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Association.

The service was held at St Andrews church, Ombersley. KS2 Ombersley opened the event by singing ‘We will remember them’ Then Year 4 read selections from the school log book from 1914-1918, bringing alive the children and headmaster form Ombersley school during that time. Hindlip and Tibberton school read a moving Peace Poem. Sytchampton told us the history of the poppy and recited Flanders Field. All the schools and the congregation joined in ‘I vow to thee my country’  The hand bell group played a selection of tunes including ‘Its a long way to Tipperary’ and ‘Rule Britannia’ . We were then given an overview of the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters regiment during WW1. At 11 am we stood and listened to the bugle being played from the church balcony and had a minutes silence to remember those who died for us.

After the church service the schools visited the exhibition in the church, the war graves of the soldiers from WW1  and the WW1 Touring bell tent, with 2 historians from  Discover History, which was in the church grounds.
