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.

 

 

  • Congratulations Tiegan

    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.

  • PlayMakers Training

    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.

  • Year 6's Visit to St Philip's Cathedral

    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.

  • Year 5's Mosque Visit

    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.
