Today, we have celebrated Halloween with our annual Scary Hair Day! The children all came with fantastic designs in their hair, using different colours, creepy crawlies and cobwebs. A brilliant array of dressing up costumes too!
All your £1.00 donations have gone towards our school fund which will help us buy equipment and resources for our children. Thank you!
The children in 'Rowley Robins' have had a fantastic time taking care of our snails over the last few weeks. Some of the children were even brave enough to hold them! Snails eat a variety of foods but they absolutely love their fruit and vegetables. Their favourites are cucumber, peppers, strawberries and grapes!
Thank you to all our parents/carers who attended our 'Healthy Eating' and 'Toileting' workshops this half term! We hope you've all learnt something new and enjoyed taking part.
We have some more exciting workshops coming up next half term, covering, 'Play' and 'Communication and Language'. We hope to see you there!
Some comments from the parents/carers that attended...
'I really enjoyed the workshop and learnt a lot about how to start toilet training'
'Got some great tips this morning! Lots of new ideas to take home and try'
'I need to be persistent, calm and learn to understand my child'
'The session was very informative. I learned new and better ways to get my son to cut down in his snack intake and try new foods'
'Very helpful, I've learnt more ideas to make meal times more fun and I am now aware of how much sugar is in Haribo sweets and chocolate'
This week, we have been collecting all of your kind donations towards our annual 'Harvest Food Festival'! All the donations of tinned and pre-packed food will be sent to our local food bank in Walsall.
Thank you for your continued support and generosity!
What a fantastic way to celebrate the end of the academic year! We had a wonderful visit from Stella and 'The Farm On Wheels' today. She showed us a brilliant variety of animals that the children absolutely loved...
Today, we had a very exciting visit from 'The Animal Man' company! The children had the opportunity to hold and touch each of the 5 animals that Laura bought to see us - some children even volunteered to have the snake wrapped around their shoulders! A unique opportunity, enjoyed by everyone. We met...
We would like to say a huge 'THANK YOU' to everyone who joined us for our Easter Workshop this year! Reverend Gilbert David very kindly invited us to hold our workshop at ‘All Saints Church, Moxley’ in their Church Hall.
We hope the children (and parents/carers) enjoyed the various activities, including making their own Easter crown!
We have all been super excited to take part in the 'Living Eggs' scheme again this year! On Monday 20th March, our eggs were delivered. 10 eggs for Rowley Robins and 10 eggs for Rowley Owls. Our eggs arrived on Day 19 of the hatching process, a fertile egg is most likely to hatch on Day 21 (Wednesday)!
On Tuesday afternoon, we could hear the chicks chirping from inside the 'Incubator' and they were beginning to 'pip' and break through their shells. One by one, they started to arrive - how exciting! It didn't take long for our chicks to 'fluff up' which meant we could soon move them to our 'Brooder Box'.
The 'Brooder Box' has some light to ensure our chicks are kept warm, they also have fresh water and chick feed. The children have done a fantastic job helping to clean the 'Brooder Box' and they have thoroughly enjoyed looking after our chicks this week.
This week, the children have had lots of fun creating their own Cornflour Slime, also known as 'Oobleck'! By simply mixing Cornflour and a small quantity of water - your 'Oobleck' is ready to use! Is it a solid? Is it a liquid? It's both! A super easy activity to recreate at home!
The children had a fantastic time at Darlaston Library this morning! They were able to take part in a story-time workshop, various colouring activities and were given a tour of the younger children’s library area. Each child will also have the opportunity to become a member of the Library!
Another week jam-packed with exciting activities!
Our 'Rowley Robins' children have had lots of fun creating their own 'Puppet Theatre' this week. Using some of their handmade puppets to show their own story to the rest of the group - what fun!
Our 'Grey Owl' family have had lots of fun this week with their 'Woodworking' activities! Each child had the opportunity to saw, screw, hammer and measure the pieces of wood. They've had a fantastic time!
In Rowley Robins, the children have been taking part in some 'Mindfulness' activities, each Monday, with Becky. What fun they have had - bending and stretching through Yoga and listening to relaxation music!
Wow - what fun we have had! The children have thoroughly enjoyed our few days of snow this week. They've been sledging around the garden, moulding snowballs and making 'Snow Angels' too! They even made their own 'Snowmen' called 'Billy' and 'Masha' - well done everyone!
Today, we celebrated 'Sparkle Day' to help fundraise for 'Newlife'! The children were able to come to school wearing their own clothes (with or without sparkles) and donated £1 towards this fantastic charity. Using lots of colour and glitter, we decorated our own bunting and coloured pictures too.
'Newlife' shine a light on children living with disabilities and terminal illnesses across the UK. All money raised will ensure these children can receive the vital specialist equipment that they need. From specialist beds, buggies, wheelchairs and sensory toys, every penny raised will help to change a child’s life.
We had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day! The children came in to school wearing their pyjamas or fancy dress. We shared some of our favourite stories and each child received a £1 token which they can use to buy a brand new book from the World Book Day 2023 collection!
In our latest 'Science Experiment', the children are using water and shaving foam to create their own 'Rain Cloud in a Jar'. Fill your jar with water and add a layer of shaving foam to the top. Using pipettes, you can add coloured water droplets to the top and watch as they slowly make their way through the 'clouds' and into the water - these are our 'raindrops'! It was a fantastic activity, thoroughly enjoyed by all!
The children have been taking part in some fantastic 'Science Experiments' over the last few weeks! They have been learning about chemical reactions by using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. When an acid and a base mix they form a gas called carbon dioxide. Here the vinegar is the acid and the bicarbonate of soda is the base. It creates a brilliant 'fizz' reaction and sound!
We have had a fantastic time at Winter Wonderland Telford this year! It is a truly magical experience for both young and old
The children were able to:
Thank you for all your lovely feedback - we hope the children enjoyed the day as much as we did!
Once a month, we are hosting our own ‘Baby and Toddler Group’ in our new, sensory ‘Hub’
Our aim is to provide a friendly and relaxed environment where parents/carers can unwind and mix with others whilst the children explore a new environment and play with a range of sensory toys and resources
We have had 2 fantastic sessions today - a big 'THANK YOU' to the parents that attended!
From Monday 10th October, we began our annual ‘Harvest Food Festival’ and all donations of tinned or pre-packed foods were greatly appreciated. All donations are sent to the local food bank in Walsall.
We would like to say a massive 'THANK YOU' for all of your generous donations this year. Boxes and bags full of tins and packets were collected this week, your continued support during these tough times has been remarkable!
The children have really enjoyed our mini 'Travel Agents' set up in School this week! They've been talking about where they've been on holiday, where they would like to go over the Summer and have had lots of fun typing on our special laptop.
The children have enjoyed some fantastic visits to Sheepwash Farm and Brockswood Animal Sanctuary over the last half term! They have seen a variety of animals (feeding some of them!), explored the play area and they even enjoyed an exciting tractor ride. What a fantastic way to end the School year!
In a now>press>play Experience, the children use wireless headphones and are plunged into the world of their chosen story/topic. Immersed in sound, they become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems, on an educational adventure they’ll never forget.
The children have listened to some lovely stories including The Gingerbread Man and Jack and the Beanstalk! They have also loved the animal experiences, including Minibeasts and Dinosaurs!
We were super excited to take part in the ‘Living Eggs’ scheme this term. The children loved coming to school every day to see if the eggs had hatched and to watch our chicks grow! We had a total of 16 chicks hatch - 8 in Rowley Robins and 8 in Rowley Owls.
One of our lovely Teaching Assistant's decided to re-home 4 of our chicks at the end of our scheme which is super exciting. The remaining 12 chicks will be ethically and responsibly re-homed on one of the many smallholdings and free range farms that work with 'Living Eggs' to provide safe and appropriate welfare.
In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen becomes the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. Thank you to all the parents, carers and grandparents that joined us to celebrate. The children loved making their very own crown for our Jubilee Party - it was fantastic to see how creative they all are!
We would like to say a huge 'THANK YOU' to everyone who has made donations towards Ukrainian Refugees! We have received an incredible amount of essential items and your support is very much appreciated
12 bags of nappies
18 packets of wipes
10 packets of sanitary products
46 toothbrushes and toothpaste
39 soaps, shower gels and shampoo
and so much more!
Thank you everyone for your generosity!
Fun in the Snow
Our children in 'Rowley Robins' enjoyed playing in the snow, working together to build a 'Snowman'. We had lots of fun throwing snowballs and then warmed ourselves up with a delicious 'Hot Chocolate'.
Our children in 'Rowley Robins' have made some fantastic hand-print poppies which we turned into our 'Remembrance Day' wreath. They have had lots of fun getting messy and being creative!
Our children in 'Rowley Robins' did some fantastic artwork - inspired by our school 'Firework Display'. They enjoyed using the different coloured paints and making the 'splash' marks using some tea bags (don't tell the staff)!
Our children in 'Rowley Robins' made some fantastic 'Diva Lamps' to celebrate Diwali! They loved getting artistic and using the multi-coloured sequins and tealights to create their own lamp to take home. We also sampled some samosa's, spring rolls and onion bhaji's - which most of the children thoroughly enjoyed!
Our children in 'Rowley Robins' celebrated 'Halloween' during our Scary Hair Day. They enjoyed making potions with water, sequins, food colouring, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to make the potion froth! We also made some special magic wands for the children to take home. Practicing our 'Fine Motor' skills - the children were tapping golf tee's into the pumpkin flesh!
There was also a special visitor - Miss Dinosaur! The children absolutely loved seeing the costume pop up around school and couldn't wait to get home to tell their Mum's and Dad's!
