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.
Congratulations to Liliana who was Mrs Sturrock and Mrs Evans’ Star of the Week this week for being a fantastic role model for others in the class and always giving 100% effort in everything she does. Well done Lily!
On Friday it was Art Day at Newdale.
As part of our exciting Art Day activities, Reception have been learning about the artist Bridget Riley. We looked at the type of art work Bridget Riley produced and how it is mainly optical illusions. We looked at how optical illusions are where ‘we see something more in a picture that looks quite simple at first’. We looked at lots of different examples of optical illusions created by Bridget Riley and then worked collaboratively to create our own class ‘op art’. We linked our artwork to the United Kingdom and created a map of the UK in the style of Bridget Riley. We used different shades of green paint to create our land and different shades of blue paint to create our ocean using dots/ circles and lines to create the effect.
When we weren’t creating our map of the UK we created our own art work using a range of different media. We have had such a fun, messy day!
Our art work is still drying at the moment but we will share a photo of the finished ‘masterpiece’ next week once it is dry and put together. Here are a few photos of us busy creating it in the meantime…
We loved art day today. Everyone dressed for the occasion.
We learnt about the British artist Bridget Riley and then created a masterpiece inspired by her style. We loved looking at her artwork. It played tricks on our eyes and some made us feel dizzy! We also enjoyed time to paint freely. Such a fun day.

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.
We had such a great day. We were so excited to go on an enormous coach all the way to the farm.
Farmer Ben gave us some special animal food and gave us a guided tour all around the farm. We learnt about the different animals.
We enjoyed our picnic lunch outside and a run round in the park.
We know a few children missed our first trip due to chickenpox or illness. We missed you and wish you well soon. We do have some more lovely things planned in soon that you will get to enjoy.
