Curriculum Enrichment

Peter Pan

Today we set off for Wolverhampton Neverland for a day at the Panto. We were all very excited, and most of us managed not to eat our packed lunch before we arrived.

The show was a lot of fun. Everyone joined in with the "boooooos" when Captain Hook appeared. And we helped Peter Pan find the crocodile. One of the most spectacular parts was when the Chuckle Brothers flew their car over the audience. Mrs Hawes is trying to work out how we can do this in one of our shows...

One of our favourite bits was when a couple of familiar faces appeared on stage. There were some extra loud cheers for the Three Bears...

Black Country Museum

Today the whole school had an exciting day out at the Black Country Museum. Pupils were able to experience school as it would have been in 1912, and what it would have been like to work down a coal mine.

Pupils and staff had fun talking to people in the houses and shops, who explained to us what life would have been like in the Olden Days.

There were also opportunities to try Victorian games like the hoop, skipping and hopscotch. Even some of the teachers had a go.

A great day was had by all.

Warwick Castle!!

It's the start of our curriculum enrichment week, the whole school visited Warwick Castle, despite the weather we had a grand day out. We were able to enjoy and look around the grand hall, which was absolutely amazing. Some of the more daring of us walked the ramparts all 532 steps!! We saw the birds of prey show and the bowman show. Mrs Ralphs and Mrs Tombs visited the castle dungeon, we heard the screams outside!

Activty Week - Literacy

While pupils and staff were enjoying their time at Astley Burf, the rest of the school enjoyed a curriculum enrichment week. Here's what we got up to with the Literacy department...

Pupils experienced a week of Harry Potter awe and wonder!

The Sorting Hat allocated them to their houses - Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or  Slytherin. Once sorted, we made Potter owls, looked through the Mirror of Erised, created our own  wands and made Golden Snitches. All were excellent pupils of Hogwarts! Sadly, they all had to leave as the Hogwarts Express was waiting in the station.
