11th June 2021

Welcome back for what is sure to be an exciting half term and the last this academic year. Teachers started the week off working hard and learning lots of new things that they are eager to share with you.  


This week, our Year 6 children attended a 'Precious Lives Workshop'. This was delivered on behalf of West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner.  The Precious Lives project sees a team of trainers, who have real life experience of knife crime either as a victim, offender or professional, speak to young people in order to help them understand the consequences of carrying or using a knife. As knife crime continues to rise, it is important that children are educated on the risks and staying safe.  


Eragon by Christopher Paolini, is one of my favourite books. It is full of magical adventures of Dragon riders and follows the story of Eragon, a young boy, who finds himself in the possession of a Dragon egg. The story follows him and his beautiful, enchanting Dragon he names Saphira. They share an amazing bond and Eragon must battle to save himself and the legend of Dragon riding. It is a must read for upper KS2 for anyone who loves fantasy adventure. 


Enjoy your weekend. 

Stay safe
