On Tuesday 13th November, Class 5 had a fantastic visit to Birmingham Art Gallery and Museum. They took part in an Greek Art master class and a Greek Gods workshop. They got the chance to paint using the red figure technique and etch into card to create geometric patterns. In the other workshop they got the chance to act out famous myths by dressing up and using props.
We enhanced our learning on Christianity and learnt lots about the features of a Church. Children took part in several activities creating their own chalice, stained glass window, a tour of the church and even designing their own stole.
Class 3 had a great day on Tuesday 9th October.
Year 3 arrived at Cannock Chase and took part in a range of activities linked to our Stone Age topic. Pupils were organised into their own tribes, built shelters in the forest, had a go at archery to catch their dinner. Pupils also made their own fire using a flint. Their behaviour was super and they all really enjoyed the day in the sunshine.
Reception had a wonderful time at the sea life centre exploring the wonders of under the sea.
Year 1 visited Christ the King Church, where they were met by Rev Simon, who talked to the children about the features of a church and why they are important. They learnt all about the pulpit, altar, lectern, bible and the clothing a vicar needs to wear.
Jaskirat described the trip as 'interesting and fun'
Class 5, had an eventful non-stop day on Friday 29th June at RAF Cosford. We started the day with a rockets workshop, we then enjoyed the 'Fun and Flight' section of the museum. After lunch we had our World War 2 workshop, where we got the chance to look at real artefacts, clothing and shelters.
Class 4 had a WILD time at Dudley Zoo, learning about how to classify animals. With our partners, we looked at different types of animals and decided which class they were part of.
To bring an end to our Roman History topic this term, class 3 were lucky enough to visit Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery where they thoroughly enjoyed hands on experience with real Roman artefacts and become real life Romans. This included a number of activities such as dressing up as the Roman's did, marching as Roman soldiers and discovering many different remains that have been found in Britain to come to their own conclusion about how they lived their lives. Thank you Class 3 for a wonderful day of joy and representing our school so beautifully!
Year 5 and 6 went on an exciting trip the NEC's Big Bang Science Fair. It was a busy day and a lot of fun was had ranging from speed tunnels racing against Usain Bolt, to RAF planes. We went around the fair in small groups so we were able to take part in all the activities they had to offer. Some Year 6's even got the chance to make a vehicle, where as some Year 5's got their heart and brain function measured.
Four children in Year 6 attended the Lego competition at RAF Cosford! During the full and fun packed day the children had to build a robot for their first task , which had to have an attachment that allowed it to carry a cup of water over a circuit that was already set out, and each person in the group was observed on their input to the project. During the afternoon and their second task, they had to create a robot that would be good at playing football. After playing many teams, they reached the final and were runners up. The teams were being observed over the day for teamwork, speed, ideas and completing the tasks. When they had finally gathered all the marks at the end of a fun packed day, Palmers Cross Primary were announced the winners.
Well done, we are very proud of you!
