SUMMER TERM 2017 - Gallery and School News
We are delighted that having been working towards our Achievement for All Quality Mark for the past two years, we have today been successful in achieving it. “Enabling every child to be the best they can be regardless of background, challenge or need”. 20 July 2017
In May Base 3 visited our new school site, click here to see the photos in our New School tab.
On our 2 night residential to The Pioneer Centre in Shropshire we tried a great range of indoor and outdoor activities. These included caving, zip wire, archery and raft building.
Our 4 night residential at the Dol-y-Moch Outdoor Education Centre in Wales was a great learning and fun experience. Pupils and staff shared a coach with children from Whitley Abbey Primary School and Baginton Fields School and lots of new friendships were formed. Children went to the beach searching for crabs and other sea creatures and splashing in the rock pools, where they also made a stone tower and some beach art and ate a scrumptious Welsh ice-cream. On the mountain adventure, there was a woodland walk and the group stopped for lunch and made a campfire on which to roast and eat marshmallows. The wheels and water experience was great for cycling and having fun on the lake.

|The gardening club and Base 1 pupils have been working really hard doing lots of new challenges and activities for the Woodland Trust Green Tree School awards. They have been taking photos of nature using iPads, following trails to gather leaves and sticks, making their own mud pies and decorating them with leaves they have gathered, making different trees and leaf prints in Art. As a result of this hard work we have been awarded a Platinum Award – the highest award from the Woodland Trust Green Tree School project. A fantastic achievement, well done to everyone for their hard work.|
Thank you to Rosie and Lucy, Marisa and Zoe, Sue and Lyla, Kim and Crush for coming to our assembly. We loved learning about the Pets as Therapy dogs.

Gardening Club - Thank You
Thank you to Thompson and Morgan who kindly donated packets of seeds to our Gardening Club and wished us every success with our project. We can’t wait to plant our seeds and have lots of fun learning!
Woodland Trust Awards
To work towards achieving these awards our woodland group joined our lunchtime rambling club to explore the wonderful woodland environment of Coundon Wedge. Here they enjoyed feeling the different tree textures, listening to the sound of the wind against the leaves, collecting leaves, seeing the squirrels jumping from tree to tree and feeding the horses.
We used the leaves we collected to make a tree poster, our pupils had so much fun doing this activity, it was wonderful to see how proud our pupils were of their work.
Royal Horticultural Society School Gardening Award
We are very pleased to have been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society School Gardening Award Level 4. In working towards this award pupils planted, weeded, harvested and cooked a variety of plants in our school garden - working, learning and having fun at the same time!
Thank You to The Ukuholics
The Ukuholics, part of Coventry U3A, came to play and sing at our assembly on Monday 25 April. It was a fun start to the week and everyone loved the music and singing. Thank you to all of The Ukuholics.
SPRING TERM 2016
Our Easter Egg Hunt
Thank you Jaguar Land Rover
Our sensory garden had been looking a little ‘worn and tired’ and was in need of a makeover to provide a stimulating outdoor learning environment for the children. Then a few months ago we were contacted by Jaguar Land Rover in Coventry who wanted to come and do a charity project for us. On the 16th and 17th March 7 employees from Jaguar Land Rover worked tirelessly transforming our garden by constructing wooden frames from which we can hang a wide variety of sensory items to stimulate and enhance children’s outdoor learning. They also very kindly repaired and painted our raised beds and garden chair. It is still a work in progress but over the next few weeks we will be adding items to the frames to make it complete.
We are immensely grateful to the employees of Jaguar Land Rover for their kindness and thoughtfulness and for the time and effort they put into this project for us. THANK YOU
Thank you to the pupils from Joseph Cash School who came to perform their Indian dance for our school assembly - their dancing was beautiful

Thank you to Dogs for Good who brought "Ursa” into assembly. Beryl told the children about the work of "Dogs for Good” with a particular focus on how dogs can help other people; it was also a great opportunity for some children to have a wonderful hands on experience and for others to begin to overcome their fear of dogs. The photos were taken by one of our Base 4 pupils - well done!
Base 4 created a fantastic castle in Design and Technology for the whole school to enjoy.
Early Years and Base 1 have made colourful bonfire night displays.
