Young Voices 2020

What a fantastic day and evening the choir had at The Resorts World in Birmingham. 

We arrived there at lunch time and after eating our packed lunch were taken our seats in the arena. The rehearsals lasted all afternoon – it was great, we got to sing with Ruti, who won The Voice, The Shires and Tony Hadley as well as dancing with Urban Strides. After the rehearsals we ate our tea and it was time for our parents and the rest of the audience to arrive. 

The evening was even more magical; with lots of singing, cheering, screaming, clapping and dancing.

It was a long, but very exciting day. As always we were a credit to the school and made all the teachers so very proud!

 

Soup Kichen

What a fantastic end to our World War II topic! After spending the beginning of the week making three different kinds of soups, carrot cookies and practising our songs, we were ready for our parents to arrive. And so many parents came! We were overwhelmed!

The children, dressed as evacuees, loved serving their soup and showing all their hard work to their families. 

Than k you so much to everyone who came and for the lovely comments we received.

Inter house football competition

The children have really enjoyed their football coaching with Harry from Kidderminster Harriers, this half term.

In the final session, the children took part in an inter house football competition. There were some great skills being used, in attack and defence. 

Well done to  all the house teams who played with a great sporting attitude.

A busy November!

We’ve been extremely busy in Year 3 (as always!) over the last couple of weeks. We visited Mr Brett’s allotment and dig up some of his vegetables. We linked this to our Dig for Victory work and designed and made our own soup ready for the soup kitchen next week.

In science we have been learning all about forces and magnets.  Last week we made our own magnetic games. It was great fun! Have a look below for some photos of us!

 

 

Kenyan Teachers visit

What a wonderful few days we had with our visiting Kenyan teachers. They had travelled all the way from Nairobi to come to visit our school. 

Our visitors spent a busy weekend with Mrs Stanley and Mrs Osborn in Worcester looking around the Cathedral and going for a traditional afternoon tea, then Sunday at The Birmingham German Market.

On Monday morning they came to school and joined in straight away with our lessons – Money and instructions to make a cup and ball toy in year 2, soup tasting in year 3 and 4. At break time they joined in with skipping. They had a lovely time in Forest school with year 1 and joined in with singing and story telling in Pre-school and Reception. They also went swimming with year 3 and 4. We planted two special trees in our Sensory garden to commemorate their visit.

It was an amazing experience for all of us – the feedback they gave us about our school was so lovely. They were really impressed with the children’s behaviour and were inspired by way we teach and our school environment.  They  said they will go back to Nairobi with lots of new ideas for their school.

We hope to be able to send a parcel of ‘goodies’ for the children at Langata West Primary school where they teach to enable them to have a small gift in the New Year.

Art and DT

This half term in Year 3 we have really enjoyed learning lots of new skills in Art and DT. We have been observational drawing, learning how to finger knit (that was a challenge!), drawing traditional Kenyan art ready for our African visitors and next week we will be designing and making our own soup. Lots of important new skills have been learnt and lots of fun has been had too! 

 

 

Tennis

We loved our tennis lessons last half term and luckily the sun shone for most of them! We finished the half term with a mini tournament in our houses, have a look below for the photos.

This half term we are doing football- it’s much muddier than tennis but still lots of fun! 

October in Year 3!

What a busy few weeks we’ve had in Year 3! In science we’ve been learning about fossils. We made our own fossils out of ground coffee and practised being palaeontologists with chocolate chip cookies! We’ve also  been learning about the land use in Ombersley and how it has changed since the Second World War. We went on a walk to the village and used the iPads to take photographs of the human and physical geography of our local area. Well done everyone, you’ve worked really hard this half term. Enjoy your week off!

 

 

 

 

Year 3 fun

We’ve had a busy couple of weeks in Year 3. We enjoyed a visit from Severn Trent and their education buses. We loved looking for leaks, checking pollution levels and the virtual reality Mine raft games.

In our lessons we’ve loved learning more about the Blitz and have been working hard on our own Blitz artwork. Have a look at some of the photos of what we’ve been doing.


Evacuees for the day!

Yesterday we were evacuated on the Severn Valley Railway to Highley. We all came to school dressed up and we made sure we took our gas masks and identity cards with us. We travelled on the steam train where our identity cards were checked and Ms. Smith was arrested for not having hers with her!

When we reached Highley we visited an Anderson shelter, played wartime games and learnt about rationing in a World War 2 kitchen. After lunch we watched fireighting and travelled back to Kidderminster on the steam train. It was a fantastic day and we learnt lots of new information about the war. It really brought our story of ‘The Lion and the Unicorn’ to life as we imagined how scary it would have been to have been sent away from our families. A lovely day out and everyone’s behaviour was excellent. Lots of members of the public commented on how well behaved Ombersley were- well done!

Have a look below for some photos of our day- we split into mixed year groups so if you can’t see yourself check Year 4’s page too!
