Last week, RAS visited the trim trail at the Starbank Road site. Children were a little apprehensive at first but soon got the hang of it.
Over the half term break, perhaps you could visit the local park. This will really help your child to develop their gross motor skills.
Nursery have been learning all about the farm, and recently had a great time visiting Ash End House Farm. Using what they have learnt, let Nursery tell you all their favourite things about the farm with this brilliant Rocket Radio “Farm Show”! There’s lots of fantastic music, stories, nursery rhymes, sound effects, animals, quizzes, and plenty of farm fun! This show was broadcast today in Nursery at both Bierton Rd and Starbank Rd sites.

1RB have enjoyed experimenting, planning, designing and making their musical instruments in Design and Technology this week! They had to think about what resources would be best to use, how they can be fixed together and to make sure it created a sound.
Take a look at their brilliant musical instruments!
Classes 4M, 4S, and 4R joined forces to deliver part 2 of the Year 4 radio shows last month. Inspired by the book Street Child, this show takes you back into the hard life of the Victorian era, and gives you Victorian facts, adverts, and even a news report from 1866! The show was broadcast live from the Starbank Road studio. Catch up on the show by clicking the link below: –
We love to eat Gingerbread in Year 1, and we love to read the Gingerbread Man story!

There were also recipes, quizzes, and some brilliant music to keep you entertained! Listen again by clicking the link below: –
We have been composing and taking photographs. We have also been learning how to edit them…..here are a few of our photos
Year 4 recently visited the wonderful gem that is Blakesley Hall, hidden in the midst of Yardley. We went together, walking in the sunshine until we were met with the beautiful striped building and its lush gardens. 4P and 4F had a great time, learning all about the Tudors, dressing up and even finding time for a nap in a four-poster bed!
After a lovely lunch, we had the chance to wander and play in the gardens, smelling the beautiful herbs and flowers, as well as being able to have a go at writing with a feather quill.
Well worth a visit!
What a lovely day!

The children at Starbank Nursery had a wonderful day at Ash End Farm today. A huge thank you to all the parents who came to help today. The children enjoyed feeding the sheep and goats. They helped to bottle fed a lamb. All of the children took home a fresh egg for their tea.
The children had a wonderful time at Ash End Children’s Farm. We fed the goats and sheep and held the chicks. The children each found an egg to take home with them.
After our delicious packed lunches, we went to see the horses and went for a walk around the pasture.
