Summer 1 2016

Our new topic is all about the Romans and is called I am Warrior! Look out for some exciting new learning.

Spring 2 2016

Our topic this half term is called Tremors and the learning has centred around a fantastic text we have used called Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit. 

 

The children imagined they were the main character, Marcus, and wrote about how he escaped from the destruction in Pompeii. The quality of writing was fantastic. 

We also used the skill of personification to describe a volcano erupting after watching some very exciting volcano clips. 

 

River Rangers

Our Year 4 children have been involved in a very exciting project with The Worcestershire Wildlife Trust called River Rangers. They have been learning about how we use water and completed an audit of the sources and uses of water within our school. The children have found this a very valuable enhancement to their learning within the Science curriculum and will be far more aware of how they use the water available to them and what they put down the sink!

On Monday 21st March all of the children spent the afternoon at Catshill Village Meadow sampling the water in Battlefield Brook. They kick sampled and used identication charts to assess the different creatures found within their samples. This indicated the quality of the water running through Battlefield Brook. We identified lots and lots of shrimps, some carrying their offspring around with them. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring 1 2016

 

On Friday 8th January, Egyptian Mummies invaded the school hall at Catshill First School. But don’t worry nobody was hurt as it was part of a workshop that KS2 children and staff organised for their parents. As part of the workshop, parents were asked to bring in a toilet roll which was the cause of much excitement and curiosity!

 

During the morning, the parents participated in a range of activities with their children including; designing their own canopic jars; writing their names in hieroglyphics and ordering the instructions for ‘How to Mummify a Pharaoh’. They were ably aided by the KS2 children who, during the week, had learnt how to become a mummifier and were now able to train their parents.

At the end of the morning, the parents were then able with to turn the children in to real life mummies! Here are some photographs to celebrate the fantastic and fun morning had by all who were able to attend.

 

Happy new year to you! Welcome back to the spring term where we will be learning all about Ancient Egypt during our topic 'Enter the Nile'. We have many exciting learning activities planned for the children including a mummification workshop on Friday 8th January.

 

Autumn 2 2015


We were lucky enough to have a visit from a local dentist during our Burps, Bottoms and Bile topic. The children learned about human and animal teeth and saw examples of rotten teeth. 

 

 

 

Autumn 1 2015
Our topic for this half term was Scrumdiddlyumptious. As part of our learning we used the traditional tale Hansel and Gretel as a writing stimulus. The children made shadow puppets to retell part of the Hansel and Gretel story. 
 
 
 
 
 
Summer 1 2015
 
On Monday 13th April, KS2 visited the Catshill Predator Museum held in our very own Hall! 
 
We spent nearly an hour and half exploring books, images, key words, videos and objects so that we could fully immerse ourselves in our new topic. 
 
It was a great way to get engaged in our topic and we all learned lots. Have a look in our classrooms and books to see just some of what we found out. 
 
The staff were very proud of how KS2 conducted themselves in the museum and cannot wait to see what all the children learn from our trip to the West Midlands Safari Park later this week.
 

 

Autumn 2 2014

KS2 have been working hard on writing their own lyrics for S Club 7's Reach For The Stars.

After a wonderful performance to each other, Mr Rivett and Mrs Plant felt that these inspiring lyrics had to be shared with everyone. Enjoy practising your favourite at home!
