Years 3 and 4 have started a project to share smiles throughout the community. We have made “smile stones” and have been tasked with hiding them in and around our community over half term. The smile stones have been designed to make people who find them smile. We very much hope that they are well received by the community and we look forward to anyone who finds them sharing the details on our school Facebook page. See the photos section below for a sneak peak at the designs to look out for when you are out and about.
Please note that after May half term our PE and swimming days will be swapping - PE will be on Wednesdays and Swimming on Thursdays.
Year 4 have been lucky enough to go on quite a number educational visits this year (Fradley Junction canal workshops, the trip to Wall Roman settlement, The Museum of Cannock Chase and our residential at Beaudesert). We’ve also been out walking and had visits from the RSPB and ‘The Granville Boys’ coal miners. (See the photos section below). Even though we’ve already done so much, Mrs Van Linden and Mrs Hare are planning even more adventures.
This term, groups of Year 4 are spending some afternoons out on the canal in our school canoes.
Mondays – Bring in swimming kit and P.E. kit for the week (PE is on Wednesdays, we swim on Thursdays).

We wrote descriptions of a location that could be included in a story. We found that they were very relaxing to listen to. Close your eyes and imagine...
