MALYMPICS at Bishop Challoner

Friday, 15 March 2019

On Thursday, children from Y3, Y4, and Y5 took part in Malympics at Bishop Challoner. It was very  challenging but Year 3 managed to come back with a trophy for their efforts. As always the children were a credit to our school.

Y5 visit to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

Thursday, 14 March 2019

On Wednesday Year Five visited Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.  We were very excited when we arrived at the museum, as we wanted to hear and see as much as we could about the history of Birmingham.  We learnt lots of interesting facts and really enjoyed the interactive activities.  We didn’t realise how interesting our home town is!

Kian – ‘I enjoyed dressing up as Matthew Boulton.’

Roya – ‘I couldn’t believe that Birmingham once was only a hamlet with nine houses.’


Handball Tournament-7th March 2019

Monday, 11 March 2019

On Thursday 7th May 2019 the Year 5/6 Handball team played in a Handball Tournament at Moseley Secondary School. We played very well in the first game but unfortunately we were narrowly beaten. In the other games the children defended and attacked as a team and showed real determination to bounce back and win the rest of their matches on the spin. Congratulations to the team as they progress onto the Birmingham games to play the other winners from their areas in Birmingham.

On Friday February 15th we were visited by a theatre company who performed ‘The Secret of the Spare Room.’ This production was based on ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.’

As you can see from the pictures, this was a great treat for the children this afternoon!


Y3 After School Cooking Club

Year Three had a fantastic time cooking after school yesterday. I have had reports that the apple and fruit turnovers are lovely!

Y3 Assembly

Thursday, 14 February 2019

A huge thank you to Mrs Glennon, Mrs Joita and the Year Three class for wowing us all yesterday with their St. Valentine’s Assembly. The class worked incredibly hard to learn lines, act and sing wonderful songs. They gave us a wonderful reminder about, even as far back as Roman times when Christianity was forbidden, God’s love shone through. I am sure that if your child is in Year Three, you are very proud of them. Class assemblies are always special.


Internet Safety Day

Tuesday, 5 February 2019

On Tuesday, along with many other schools, we devoted our day to learning more about staying safe on-line. Mr McGarrigle and Miss Dunn led special assemblies for the pupils. Miss Dunn also ran a session for parents—thank you to those who attended. It was interesting to see how many pupils are knowledgable about life ‘on-line’ but hadn’t fully considered ways to use apps safely and appropriately. We do hope that Internet Safety Day will encourage us all to follow the theme, ‘Together for a Better Internet.’ Pupils designed some excellent safety posters which are now on display in school.



Sunday, 3 February 2019

Nursery and Year 3 came together to celebrate all the wonderful things God has created. Nursery shared their work and Year 3 talked about what they are thankful for too. They listened to the Creation story, sang some hymns and prayed together. They then had the opportunity to spend some time with their ‘Prayer Buddies.’
