Year 1's Got Talent

For weeks the children in Year 1 have been planning their own talent show. They thought long and hard about which talents they were most proud of and have practised their skills non stop. Everybody was so proud of them for their confidence and awesome performances. Well done Year 1! What an amazing way to end the year! 


In Science we have been learning how to work scientifically! We tested 3 different soapy liquids to see which ones made the best bubbles. Try it at home:

  • Mix water and washing up liquid
  • Use a pipe-cleaner to make your bubble wand

Thank you - West Midlands Ambulance Service

Today we had a very special visit from West Midlands Ambulance Service who came to talk to us about how we can depend on them when we are poorly. We learnt about using the 999 service properly if we ever need to and even got to ride the ambulance! We had a great time and really enjoyed trying on the helmets and watching our friends be bandaged. Thank you so much to the West Midlands Ambulance team who were so patient with us and took the time to answer all of our questions.
