Our Trip to The Rock Church

Year 1 continued their exciting week with a walk up to The Rock Church this morning.

It was such a lovely morning, with the children learning the Christmas story brought to life with a special pass the parcel! Thank you to Deacon Julie and Derek for taking such good care of us.

We even had a biscuit and a drink in very posh china cups!

Year 1 D&T afternoon with our Grandparents!

Thank you to all the wonderful grandparents who came and helped Y1 with their first ever D&T project! They created the most fantastic puppets and learnt the  valuable skill of sewing. The children were so excited to have you as their special visitors! We hope to see you back next term for the tea-party.

We are also proud of the children who couldn’t be with a grandparent as they worked incredibly hard independently to sew and decorate their puppets too. They couldn’t wait to take them home!

Active Lives Parent Survey

We would be extremely grateful if parents of Year One pupils could take the time to complete the Active Lives sports survey from the link above. This is a useful survey which allows us to build a bigger picture on sport both inside and outside of school and helps to fund some free sports equipment in school.

Thank you to those who have already completed it. Please could you make it known in your child’s reading diary if you have completed it so that we can award your child house points.

Many thanks for your support.

Miss Jones and Mr Irvine


Year 1’s journey on the Christmas Cracker Express!

We absolutely loved our visit to the Severn Valley Railway yesterday. After learning about steam trains, it was a real treat to be able to experience one in real life. Our visit to the Severn Valley Railway really engaged the children in our History topic and they thoroughly enjoyed sharing the facts that they learned when we returned to school. We were extremely lucky to have a very special visitor on our train… there’s certainly some surprised faces in our photos!

Apley Wood Sponsored Walk Tokens
