This week we held our Big Arts Week Exhibition for our pupils which showcased the wonderful art work that our pupils created before the holidays. Each year group created art work which reflected a different continent:
Reception - North America
Year 1 - Africa
Year 2 - Europe
Year 3 - South America
Year 4 - Antarctica
Year 5 - Asia
Year 6 - Oceania
Unfortunately, due to Covid, we have been unable to have our parents in school to see the wonderful work produced. We have however created the video below to share our art work with you. We hope that you enjoy watching it.
We are all very excited at Colmers Farm about the Commonwealth Games being held in Birmingham this year. On Wednesday this week, our Year 3 and 4 children had a special assembly about the Commonwealth Games. They also welcomed to our school a very special visitor - Perry the Bull who is Birmingham 2022's official mascot.
Over the last few weeks, our KS2 pupils and their families have been busy creating egg dioramas as part of our school's Easter celebrations. We are lucky to have so many creative pupils and their families at our school and the standard of entries was eggceptionally high. Our KS1 school council chose the winners and went to classes to present the winners with their prizes. We hope that all of our families enjoyed working together on these.
A huge well done to our Year 3, 4 and 5 Panathlon team, who managed to beat the other 3 schools in our trust to win this MAT competition at King Edwards School. We are all really proud of you all. Congratulations!

Back in November, some children from our school entered Gary Sambrook MP's Christmas card competition. The standard of entries received by Gary Sambrook MP was really high and all of these entries will be displayed at different venues around his constituency. We are delighted though that the winner of this competition was from our school. A huge well done to Tiegan in 3T, who collected her certificate and her design as a Christmas card from Gary Sambrook MP today.
On Tuesday, some children from Year 4 and 5 took part in PlayMaker training. This training day was to enhance their leadership skills and teach them how to organise playground games for younger children. The children had a great time working in different teams, and developed skills that could be used to teach and lead others. Our pupils excelled themselves and lead amazing sessions for our Year 2 children in the afternoon.
A few months ago we entered a song writing competition (ran by the Rage Arts Primary Theatre Company) to create the lyrics to songs for a theatre production of the Nutcracker. A few weeks ago, we were delighted to find out that we had won this competition.
