Our swimming team members.

A big well done to the KS2 children who competed in the Sutton Schools Swimming gala on Saturday 26th March at Walsall Swimming baths.

Despite it being the first gala for three years, the children swam like seasoned professionals with fantastic results; 1st overall in girls, 2nd overall in boys and joint 1st overall for mixed relay which meant we came a very close 2nd overall.

The children represented the school very well and thank you to the parents for their support and cheering from the stands.

Eco Club's Fairtrade Promotion

Some of the Eco Club posters for promoting Fairtrade.

8 March 2018

As it is currently Fairtrade the school's Eco Club have been creating posters to encourage children, teachers and their families to purchase Fairtrade products.

By purchasing Fairtrade products we are helping to make a difference to the lives of those people who grow the things we love. We do this by changing the way trade works through better prices, decent working conditions and a fair deal for farmers and workers in developing countries.

The children are aware that Fairtrade products are available in local supermarkets and consist of chocolate, coffee, sugar, flowers, some beauty products and much more.

Please support this good cause.

Year 3's trip to Bishops Wood Centre

Making shelters.

18 May 2016

On Thursday 18th May, Year 3 had an action packed class trip at the Bishops Wood Centre in Worcestershire.

Fortunately, the weather was lovely which enabled us to take full advantage of all of the outdoor activities on offer.

The trip took the children back to pre-historic times, with the first activity seeing them work as small groups to build their own shelter from the limited materials on offer…to varying degrees of success!

Other activities completed during the day included lighting our own fires and hunting for suitable food in the forest.

Well done to the children who behaved excellently during the day.
