Sports Day 2019

What another great Sports Day! The sun shone, the house gazebos were set up and everything was ready.

The Year 4 house captains led their houses in a mass school warm up, to start the proceedings.

There then followed running , skipping, sack, egg and spoon, beanbag and dressing up races for each of the year groups. It was great fun and very competitive.

The final races for the children were the House relay and Key Stage 2 Ombersley Marathon.

While the scores were added up our young visitors had a running race and the Mums and Dads were persuaded to do the sack race, by their children.

Finally the results were announced and Ruby house won. Well done to Ruby house, everyone who competed and all the parents who came and supported and cheered. It was a lovely morning made even better by our DJ from Kings Hawford school. Thank you. 

Cluster Sports

Ombersley had a very successful morning at the Cluster Sports 2019 taking part in different events against Hindlip First school and Tibberton First school. After a morning of exciting races all the scores were added up and Ombersley came first!

Well done to all the children who took part in events throughout the morning. There was some great support too from all the children. 

Cluster Sports 2019

What an exciting morning we had at Cluster Sports. And the sun shone all morning.

We took part in running, egg and spoon, sack and potato races and when all the scores were added up at the end Ombersley won! Well done to all the children who took part in the races and to all the children who supported and cheered everyone on.

We are looking forward to our whole school Sports day next Friday.

Flower and Music festival

The Year 2 children sang beautifully on Thursday afternoon, at St. Andrew’s Church, in the Flower and Music festival. They sang songs with a flower and garden theme and then listened to Sytchampton Primary school perform their songs too.

Afterwards we joined together to sing ‘He’s got the whole world in his hands’. Finally we walked around the church and looked at the beautiful flower arrangements, particularly the ones by the children of Ombersley First school! 

Pizza Express

The Year 2 children had a great time Pizza Express.

We tasted lots of different toppings – some were nicer than others! Then we learnt how to roll out the dough. Some of us even tried throwing it in the air! Finally we made our own Maghereta pizza which was cooked in the pizza oven so that we could bring them back to school.

When we tried a slice in the afternoon, at school, we all agreed they were delicious! Thank you Pizza Express. We loved it. 

Science in year 3

This term in Science we have been learning about plants. We have cleared our vegetable garden and planted seeds. To find out what plants need to grow, we kept our seeds in different places around the classroom.

We have learnt about the parts of a plant and carried out an investigation to find out how plants drink water. Our pollination lesson was fun; we got to eat cheesy puffs then dust our fingers over the plants to see how insects pollinate flowers. 

Next, we will start looking at The Human Body.

Cooking in Year 2

We are all loving the Muffins that we are cooking this term! Mmmmmm!

Festival of Flowers and Music

As part of the Festival of Flowers and Music, which will be taking place in St. Andrew’s Church, Ombersley from June 28th to July 5th, some of the children were chosen to take part in a flower arranging workshop.

Mrs Packer came and showed the children how to make two flower arrangements. We were very impressed with her flower arranging skills!

Hopefully, some of the children will have a go at making one of these arrangements so that we can display them in the church during the festival. We are going to be singing there too.

Tri Golf competition

Ten children from Year 3 and 4 were chosen to take part in a School Games Level 2 Tri Golf competition at Worcester Golf Range. There were six other schools there from across the Droitwich and Worcester area who had all won smaller competitions.

The children had to complete six different activities and then all the scores were added up. And we came second, narrowly missing out on first place! What an achievement for such a small school! The children were amazing and used all the skills they had learnt in their golf lessons this year. Well done! Mrs Hobbs was very proud of you all. 

Key Stage 2 Cricket

The Key Stage 2 children have enjoyed working on their cricket skills this half term, with a coach from Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

In the final session there was a house Cricket competition. It was great fun and all the children enjoyed it.

Warwick Castle

We had a fantastic day at Warwick Castle. We started the day down in the dungeon before we made our way to find out how to make a King. We loved looking at the wax models but the moving horse made us jump a bit. After we had learnt how to become king we made our way to find Princess Millie who told us a story all about a brave knight and a fierce dragon. She told us all about how knights had a shield to protect them and how the designs showed off our family name. We designed our own shields which, when we get back to school, we will turn into real wooden ones. Leaving the princess we made our way to the Falconers Quest where we met Hobby who dreamed of becoming the head falconer at Warwick. He introduced us to some of his birds in an epic show. We saw owls, eagles, hawks, falcons and a condor. They flew so close to our heads it took our breath away. We loved the finale where over 70 birds took to the sky above us swooping and diving all around. We then moved to explore the inside of the castle and met Daisy who lived at Warwick many years ago. When we came out we were very lucky to get the chance to hold a real sword but Mr Postans and Mrs Moore were less impressed when they got their heads chopped off. We ended our fantastic day racing through time in the Horrible Histories maze collecting our time stamps along the way, However Mrs Pittaway and Miss Ballard got a little lost.
We had a fantastic day at Warwick and the children were all exceptionally well behaved.
