Reception Travel to Rocket Radio!

Reception Travel to Rocket Radio!

Reception had the most fantastic end to the half term when they travelled to Starbank Road for the premier of the Rocket Radio show! It was lovely to have all of the Reception children together to celebrate this special event! The children had great fun listening to themselves on the radio, as well as showing off their dance moves and singing the ‘Three Little Pigs’ song. It really was a fantastic morning!

We would like to say a big thank you to Shan for putting the show together, and to all of the parents who came with us to hear the show.

The radio show will be available to listen to shortly on the Starbank Blog. We hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for your continued support.

RA Visit the Elves at the Eco Park

RA Visit the Elves at the Eco Park

RA had a very special visit to the Eco Park today. The children were very excited to meet Guy who took them into the woods where they found something hidden… Eric the Elf had left a secret note asking the children to help him make houses so his friends could come to the Eco Park for a party! The children enjoyed carefully selecting sticks and leaves to build their houses – some even made carpets and sofas to make them extra comfortable!

We would like to say a big thank you to our wonderful parent helpers who made the visit possible.

RP had a lovely time at the Ecopark this morning.

It was very cold but we didn’t let it stop us having fun in the woods!

We all made stick houses to help Eric the Elf, so that his friends would have somewhere to sleep after their party in the woods!

Thank you to all the parents who came along today.You made the trip possible and we are very grateful for your support.

Hob Moor Road : Meeting 6

Today the Arts Council at Hob Moor Road site gathered to begin rehearsing the presentation we have prepared for Mrs Mahli!

We decided who would say each slide and we discussed ideas to ensure our presentation is effective.

The Councillors have been set a task to do in their own time. They need to prepare a speech to compliment their class slide and practise saying their speech from memory.

Next meeting: Monday 26th February. 12.30pm

Year 1 Black Country Living Museum Visit

On Friday 26th January 2018, year 1 visited the Black Country Museum to look at how things were in the past and how things have changed over time.

The children began the day by participating in a Victorian wash day. Whereby, they had to grate the soap and add it to the water in the dolly tub. After that the children had to use the dolly to twist and mix the clothes until they were clean.

Then they had to use all their strength to turn the mangle to rinse the excess water from the clothes. Finally they then hung their clothes on a washing line using a peg.

It was an enjoyable experience but the children realised how hard the Victorian children had to work.

The half of the day the children visited old shops, a school and houses to see how they lived and to think about the difference between then and now. The children were quite surprised of the huge difference there was.

The children were so well behaved and really did Starbank Primary proud. Children and teachers alike both enjoyed the trip!  It was a very worth while experience.
