The children, who have attended guitar lessons with Mr Walters, were able to showcase their talents at a whole school assembly – this was enjoyed by all the other children.
A fantastic theatre trip for the Juniors to see The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
This visit is linked to our classwork this term with the children finding the story fascinating and really enjoying the work we are doing.
On Wednesday evening, Dan, Loch, Alfie, Ellie, Emily and Erica competed for Henry Chadwick in the annual Christmas quiz for Rugeley Primary Schools. The team got off to a great start dropping only one mark in the history round and scoring full marks in the literacy section! Further high scores came in the pot luck round (9/10), the science round (9/10) and the observation round (10/10!). A final score of 94 points was good enough for 5th place out of the 12 schools that competed. All children contributed well with a great blend of knowledge in the team. Well done!

Year 5 and 6 enjoyed an action packed day of excitement at the “Theatre of Dreams” – Old Trafford. The day began with an educational session on the Munich Air Disaster. The children were all praised for their superb contributions in the workshop and a special mention must go to Laurence and Amber who took on roles of key figures in the disaster and took part in a press conference.
As part of the stadium tour, we were able to enter both the home and away dressing rooms as well as sitting in the dugouts – including the manager’s seat! The tour also allowed the children to line up and experience the tunnel walk with sound effects to imitate the cheering and announcements of a match day.
To end the day, former Manchester United players’ shirts were given out – allowing the children to wear the same shirt Ronaldo, Rooney, Giggs and Beckham once wore!
Years 3 and 4 visited Lichfield to learn more about Lichfield during the Civil War. The children had learnt about this in the classroom; however, it really helped the children to understand the events during the visit to Lichfield and being able to walk where the old Cathedral walls would have been.

The Saltmine Theatre Company visited school to give a performance of their play “Dreamkeepers” to KS2. The play looked at bullying and how it can “crush” dreams, focusing on different types of bullying including cyber bullying and peer pressure. The play also touched on e-safety and the concerns of meeting people online in games. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the drama workshop afterwards – thinking about dreams and feelings. All junior classes were completely engaged throughout the play and learnt a lot about how they can help to stop bullying.
