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.
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. A huge thank you and well done to our winning budding song writers who were: Rennzo (in class 4J) Carol (in class 6B) Who both won book vouchers. We also got two school prizes.
This week, we held our Governors' Award Assemblies. This is an event that we hold termly at our school. For this event, we choose one winner from each of the year groups in the following three categories: * Governors' Award for being a fantastic role model to others; * Governors' Award for improving the well being to others; * Headteachers Award for excellent achievement and progress. Choosing winners for these awards is never an easy task, as we have so many children who could have been selected for each of these.
Parents, we are always eager to hear your insights about our school. Today, we are hoping that you will be able to provide us with your views about our current school uniform by completing a very short questionnaire as part of a consultation (available via the link below). Parental school uniform questionnaire This questionnaire will close on Friday 17th December. Thank you for taking the time to complete this.
As part of their studies about Judaism, our Year 3's visited Singers Hill Synagogue. The staff at the synagogue were very complimentary about our Year 3's knowledge, questions and the way they represented our school on this visit. Well done Year 3!
At Colmers Farm, we are working hard to promote the acceptance, respect and understanding of others who may have different faiths or beliefs to ourselves. This is part of our 'No Outsiders' approach to teaching equality. At our school, every year group (from Years 2-6) visits a different place of worship each year, which reflects a different religion. These visits link with the RE topic each year group are studying.
As part of their RE studies about Islam, Year 5 visited Birmingham Central Mosque. Year 5 had the opportunity to explore this building and find out about its features and how people of a Muslim faith use this building to practise their faith. The children and staff all really enjoyed this visit and learnt a lot about Islam and mosques during it. These visits are important in developing children's knowledge, tolerance and respect for others from different faiths, as we prepare our children to live and work in the multi-cultural world in which we live.
Year 1 visited the Black Country Museum as part of their Houses and Homes topic. Here they got to visit a Victorian school and they met a very strict Victorian teacher. They also visited some Victorian shops, some Victorian houses and many other places. Our Year 1s represented our school magnificently whilst on the visit.
On Thursday, Year 4 were visited by the one and only Professor McGinty (the Amazing Time Traveling Detective). This visit was to reinforce the children's learning and knowledge about their Roman topic, which is their focus for this term. The children really enjoyed this visit and Professor McGinty was very impressed at the end of the day with the knowledge the children demonstrated throughout his shows and also with the quality of their questions which they were asking. Well done Year 4!
