Y6 Trip – ‘Running Wild’ at The Grand Theatre

What a marvellous day for Y6! The whole year group were offered a fantastic enrichment opportunity based around the novel ‘Running Wild’ (by Michael Morpurgo).  The day began with a very unusual workshop teaching us the skills of being a puppeteer!  During this workshop, Cameron and Abbas even got to join in with the fun on the stage.

After lunch, it was time for the performance.  The visual effects were out of this world!  Everyone absolutely loved the show; a few even shed a few tears.  To end an excellent day, the cast held a ‘Q&A’ session at the end where Y6 got to ask any burning questions.  Y6 behaved remarkably – as always – and represented Pinfold well throughout the whole day.

Y6 Sports Morning 

What a hot day for sports activities! The children had a lovely time participating in serious and fun races.

They used a range of equipment from space hoppers to javelin to rubber rings!  

It was great to see so many parents watch and the day was made even better when some parents even joined in with some of the races!

We hope you enjoyed watching (and participating in) our sports morning!

Y6 Trip – Aston Villa stadium tour and skills workshop

Y6 travelled to Villa Park to practise their football skills and enjoy a tour around the stadium.  To begin the morning, the children enjoyed a skills workshop with one of the Aston Villa coaches.  After warming up and practising skills, they were split into teams to compete in a mini tournament.  The children were able to choose which country they wanted to represent and became really competitive when it came to scoring goals!  

Not long after lunchtime, they were lucky enough to experience a full stadium tour, where they even got to see the first team’s dressing rooms.  The children loved seeing the football pitch from different angles and heights.  To end the afternoon, they even got to run out of the tunnel with the music, just like Aston Villa’s first team.

Andy Tooze visits Y2 and Y6

In the morning, Y2 were excited to take part in  a workshop with a talented poet, Andy Tooze.  

Y6 were then inspired by Andy’s poems in the afternoon and even wrote their own about our eco zone.

Andy is the author of one of our favourite poetry books, ‘The Poetry Bug’.  

He will be back again later in the year to work with other classes.

Y6 Trip – Learning about forces and animals at Drayton Manor

Y6 thoroughly enjoyed themselves on their science trip to Drayton Manor Theme Park. Half of the day was spent in a workshop learning about forces on rollercoasters and the other half was split between the zoo and the rides.  They learnt about balancing forces, gravity, magnetism, kinetic energy, cogs and they even  got to create their own roller coaster loops using Kinnex.  During the workshop, they got to handle real magnets and cogs that were taken from rollercoasters at Drayton Manor.  Whilst visiting the zoo, they saw lots of different types of animals: reptiles, amphibians, insects, birds and mammals.  They learnt and used new scientific vocabulary, such as: omnivore, carnivore, nocturnal, invertebrate and vertebrate.  Their fun fact of the day was that a panther is actually a black leopard!

Roald Dahl Day – Dress up as a character from a Roald Dahl book!

In our second week back at school, we had fun celebrating the birthday of one of our favourite authors.  This year marks 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl and so lots of schools around the world are celebrating.

There were fantastic costumes by children and staff! Thank you to all those parents who put in so much effort into these wonderful creations.  As well as dressing up, we all enjoyed a range of reading activities based on Dahl’s books.
