Nursery

A very big welcome to the Nursery page!

Both myself and Mrs Kaur would like to share all the real, immersive and purposeful learning that happens every day in Nursery.  We embrace both indoors and outdoors learning experiences through child led activities and through our NICER curriculum challenges. We focus on three main challenges during the year; ‘You and Me’, ‘Me and my school’ and ‘Me and my friends’. During the year there are several exciting experiences linked to these challenge packs where parents are welcome into Nursery to give the children home links to their learning.

Reception

Welcome to Reception!

We have three teachers in Reception; Mrs Sahota, Mrs Ghasemi and Miss Bibi. We embrace both indoor and outdoor learning experiences on a daily basis and will encourage all children to be independent and active learners.

We look forward to sharing all our fantastic learning with you! We deliver daily Phonics, Literacy and Maths across the year group, and run several parent sessions each term to give you the opportunity to be part of your children’s learning in the classroom. Through our NICER curriculum, we focus on three main challenge packs during the year; ‘The Big Adventure’, ‘A Real World’ and ‘Magical Outdoors’.

There are several exciting experiences tied in with these challenge packs, from visiting a Fairy Trail to the Emergency Services coming to school to give the children real-life experiences! 

Year 1

Welcome to Year one!

We are very excited to begin our learning journey with your child.  We will be working hard on our maths skills, and we will focus on reading and writing throughout the year.  We also guarantee that the children will have fun along the way!

Our challenge pack is ‘Far Far Away’, and we will be learning lots about different communities around the world.  As part of our learning as historians we will be visiting the Black Country Museum to experience life as a child in the past.

We believe in working in partnership with parents, and we will do our best to ensure that you are involved in your child’s education.  We are always happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Year 2

In Year 2 we encourage children to develop their independence. We look to develop a love of learning and grow children’s intellectual curiosity and thirst to know more. We believe that learning should fuse creativity and exploration so that children develop understanding and embrace challenge.

Through our curriculum we aim to provide a breadth of knowledge and experience by making learning real, immersive and purposeful. We want children to be confident to take on new challenges, be able to work collaboratively and feel safe in the learning environment.

We feel passionate about developing the children in all aspects of their learning and in their individual needs.

Year 3

Thank you for visiting our page to find out what is happening in Year 3. Your teachers are Miss Blackstock, Mrs Pahal and Mr Batham. We aim to provide our children with a range of wonderfully exciting learning opportunities and life experiences. Our learning challenges are A Big adventure, Around the World in 80 Beats, A day at the Museum and Dinosaur stomp. These fantastic challenges will encourage children to develop their personal interests and passions through a NICER curriculum.

Year 4

Welcome to year 4 with a dynamic trio of teachers Miss Butler, Mr Cavill and Miss Uppal. In year 4 children are expected to take more ownership for their learning using their interdependence tool. We expect punctuality, respect, resilience and responsibility.

We believe that learning should be active and creative and we encourage children to embrace challenge and celebrate success.

We lead a full-on and immersive curriculum through all learning and ensure that our classroom environments are rich in culture, embrace change, creativity, active in discussion, collaboration and exploration.

Year 5

In year 5 this term we will be continuing with our changemakers challenge pack. We will be working towards setting up a community café to celebrate the diversity that we have in our local community. As always we will be working very hard on our maths, reading and writing activities. We are going to workhard to give ourselves the best possible learning experience and to reach high standards of presentation and organisation at all times.We will work hard to make sure that our behaviour is the best it can be and that we act as role models for each other at all times.

Year 6

In Year 6 we are deep into our challenge: “How can we create a portfolio of writing based upon Goblins and Ghouls?”

By the end of the term we will have innovated our own: newspaper reports; diaries; non-chronological reports; narratives; instruction texts; descriptions and more…

In Maths we are gearing up for SATS by focusing on the 4 operations and all of the elements that are required for reasoning and arithmetic.

Between revision and portfolio work we will be continuing gymnastics where we will be looking at how we travel across the floor and traverse the apparatus.
