Lawley & Overdale Parish Council have rescheduled the Queen Jubilee Family Party on the Green Open Space, Off Waterloo Road, Overdale (e.g., where the park is located), just down from the School.
It will now take place on Sunday 17th July 2022 between 11.00am – 15.00pm. There will be free buffet food and free children’s activities such as inflatables, face painting and traditional garden games, plus some music playing from the different decades.
This morning, the children watched a really engaging performance by the Loudmouth team. This was followed by powerful workshops that covered different types of abuse including domestic abuse. We discussed our trusted adults who we can talk to about our worries and recapped the PANTS rule.
Today we focused on the Latin American artist Frida Kahlo whose troubled life produced fueled incredibly powerful artwork. Our young artists learnt about her life and explored some of her famous surrealist paintings. They then tried different techniques with oil pastels before produced amazing mixed media artworks based on Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird. All the adults in Year 5 are incredibly proud of the children today for their focus and creativity.
BBQ Family Lunch is on Tuesday 19th July starting from 11.45am to 1pm.

This week the group split into two units. One group created a program with a sprite whose eyes followed the mouse (or even another automated sprite) whilst the other team created surprise animations to shock the viewer. It is amazing to see the children expressing themselves through Coding.
Ariana in Year 5 was Star Coder this week for her incredible “Emergency Code” in which she created a multiple question quiz in just 5 minutes.
This morning, Y5 attended an assembly with Severn Trent Water. We recapped the water cycle and looked into how water is cleaned to make it “potable” in the home. The children also thought about how to stay hydrated and how to spot the early signs of dehydration.
We are suffering ongoing issues with a few children who sneakily drop food under the tables at lunchtime.
Very often this food has hardly been touched e.g. whole apples and sandwiches.
Some children are throwing food under the table that has been supplied by home and other times it is food supplied by school.
It is really important to have conversations and better still get children involved in making their own packed lunches so that they have some control over what it is they will eat. Our teams try so hard to ensure that children are eating a good lunch so they have enough energy for their afternoon sessions.
I have asked our catering managers to come into school to see if they can do anything differently in order to prevent school food from being dropped on the floor.
We understand that some children are just so desperate to get outside to play that they rush their lunch. However, during assembly we will again be discussing the need to slow down and eat a good lunch.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
