PE kit should be kept in school at all times. Can children make sure they are not wearing jewellery or earrings on Tuesdays and Thursdays and their hair needs to be tied up.

Reading: We expect children to be reading at home five times a week. All children have assigned reading books and diaries to be signed.

Anti-smoking Workshop

On Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th December, Dr Hussain from Trent Vale Medical Practice, came to Stoke Minster to talk about the dangers of smoking with Year 5 and 6. She was absolutely fantastic and delivered an insightful presentation, talking about peer pressure as well as the health risks associated with smoking and vaping. Dr Hussain is committed to educating the young people in our area for a healthy future.

Stanley Head

Our residential visit to Stanley Head was a blast! We sent lots of updates to arents over Class Dojo so we hoped you enjoyed seeing your little darlings enjoying the great outdoors! All your children developed their independence and learned some responsibility in preparation for high school. Some children felt a little apprehensive about staying away from parents, quite often for the first time, but rest assured the busy week kept them thoroughly occupied so they were too busy to worry! The children took part in lots of super exciting activities like axe throwing, crate stacking, an expedition to Deep Hayes, climbing and many more. I'm sure they've filled you in!

Stanley Head Week in school...

The children who weren't able to attend stayed back at school and enjoyed the company of Mrs Nutter. In order to give the children a taste of what Stanley Head does the children also participated in some different activities taking part in a Healthy Lifestyle week. They looked at diet, exercise, mindfulness and life skills. They learned more about keeping our bodies and minds healthy. It is really important to instil this knowledge and understanding in children early in order for them to develop healthy habits. The children also took part in some life skills activities including learning how to make sandwiches, put on a duvet cover (not all adults have mastered this) and wrapping a simple gift. The children also echoed what the Stanley Head children did and took part in an orienteering activity. They had a plan of the school and some pictures and had to locate where these were and mark it on the map.

RAF Cosford

On Monday 14th October the children visited RAF Cosford as part of a fact-finding mission in preparation for our unit on World War 1. The children made rocket cars and we had some competitions to see whose car was the most aerodynamic and went the furthest across the hangar! We also went on a simulator which took us into the experience of being a Red Arrow, there were some screams of excitement - a couple of the staff are still waiting for their hearing to return. RAF Cosford is a fantastic day out and the children have already done some writing about what they enjoyed and why people should go - ask them.

Art

The children have been learning about how to draw human bodies as well as how to draw them in motion and have created some fantastic pieces of very colourful art based on the futurist movement.

 

Space Week

In celebration of Space week, the children have been using their investigative skills to explore life as an astronaut and why certain materials are more effective for spacesuits than others. This is super important as we don't want our amazing astronauts getting cooked in space by UV rays from the Sun!

Local Democracy Week.

As part of Local Democracy Week, some of our children visited the King's Hall in Stoke. One of our children has written a summary of this which you can read below.
