• Birmingham Royal Ballet Visit

    At Colmers Farm Primary School, we are always looking for ways to provide our children with new experiences and today we welcomed into school the Birmingham Royal Ballet to work with our Year 1 children. This workshop consisted of the children trying different ballet skills including stretches, side gallops and jumping. This was all done to various Disney songs/music, played by one the Royal Ballet’s staff on his keyboard. It was lovely to see all of our Year 1 children involved in this and thoroughly enjoying the session.

  • Easter Bonnet and Egg Dioramas

    In what is quickly becoming a Colmers Farm tradition at this time of the year, we held our KS2 Egg Diorama Competition and KS1/Reception Easter Bonnet Parade this week. Once again, both events demonstrated just how imaginative and creative our parents and children are. Hopefully you had a lot of fun creating these together. The standard of creations was exceptional (I’ve resisted the temptation to write eggce ptional there) and it was great to see so many parents at the Easter Bonnet Parade and Egg Diorama display at the end of the day.

  • Spring Term Governor Award Assembly

    Each term, we choice one child from each year group to receive a very special Governors' or Headteacher's Award. We are always joined by one of our Governors for this assembly and this term we were joined by our staff governor Miss Cross to help give out these awards. Our governors do a very important job as they help all of the leadership team and staff at our school to make our Colmers Farm even better than it already is. The Governors' Awards are given out for: * Being a great role model to others; * For improving the well-being of others.

  • House of Lords Q and A

    Today our Year 5s took part in a workshop called 'Learn with the Lords', this was a 40- minute Q and A session with a member of the House of Lords, Baroness Altmann. The children had the opportunity to ask the Baroness lots of questions about how the House of Lords works and what her role is. They learnt so much and were so grateful to her for giving up her time for us. She was so impressed with the questions the children asked and was very complimentary of their manners and the depth of their questions.
