Year 3 & 4 and Year 5 & 6 Gymnastics Tournament

On Wednesday 17th January 2018 twelve children, six from each phase, represented Chilcote at a Gymnastics competition at Kings Heath Boys School.

In the Year 3 and 4 competition there were seven schools who entered teams of six children. All of the children in each team had to perform a floor routine and then a vault. The highest five score from each team were combined to give a total team score. All of the children in the Chilcote team did really well in both areas and performed to the best of their ability. When all of the scores were in Chilcote had finished in fifth place overall. They were only 9points behind the eventual winners - Hollywood.

In the Year 5 and 6 competition there were five schools who again entered teams of six children. As before, all children had to do a vault and floor routine. The children excelled themselves on the floor routine with hardly any mistakes from anybody. When all of the scores were in it transpired that Chilcote had finished in first place for the competition with a score of 89. On top of that, Enya and Abi scored the highest and second highest scores on the floor routine out of the whole competition so received individual medals as well!

All of the children represented Chilcote superbly well and should be proud of their efforts, well done to all!!!

Junior Choir at Young Voices

On Friday 12th January, Junior Choir went to the Genting arena at the NEC to take part in the Young Voices concert as part of a massed choir of nearly 7,000 children. It was a fantastic night ! Our choir sang 17 songs- some of them medleys which were very long- all off by heart. It was the culmination of  nearly 5 months hard work.
We had great fun adding our dance moves to the songs and joining in with the street dancers. 
Everyone in our choir sang extremely well and behaved beautifully- it was a very long day but everyone managed to keep going throughout a long rehearsal and the concert itself.
Well done to everyone- we were very proud of you all.
Thank you very much to Mrs Drew, Mrs Bundy and Mrs Doherty who all gave up their afternoon and evening to support us.

Do you know your Rights?

We been amazed by the response to the Children’s Rights poster competition and the quality presented by the children.

We are so proud of how hard each and every child has worked to produce some really special pieces.

All their work will be displayed in the corridors for everyone to see, so please do pop in and have a look.
The posters will be left on display for children from across the school to enjoy learning about their RIGHTS!

Here are some photos!

A warning from Year 2 ...

This week we have started reading Fantastic Mr Fox and we are absolutely loving it already! We were completely shocked to find out that poor Mr Fox lost his tail in a nasty accident - those naughty farmers!

Today we received a video message from Mr Fox himself asking for our help. He is worried that these nasty farmers are going to try and hurt other woodland creatures. So we have started preparing warning posters, so that the other animals know if they spot them and can stay away.

Our descriptions of the farmers have been fantastic so far, so watch this space for our posters!

Thank you very much to all of our players- they work hard every week with Mr Singh, always showing great enthusiasm and commitment. They are all playing at a high standard and we really enjoyed their performances.  Thank you to their parents too for their support.

Year 1's Time Machines

As an introduction to our new topic, Time Travellers, we have had a very busy and creative afternoon making our very own classroom Time Machines.    A lot of thought and imagination was used to make our wonderful creations.  Teamwork was a key part of the afternoon as we thought about how we wanted the machines to look.   Some of us worked on the main body of the vehicles, others designed and decorated the driving seat, wings, engine compartment and other essentials for our forth coming journeys into the past.  

We even have a special section for magic stars to power our machine and a very stylish hat for the pilot to wear.

Here are the finished results!

1 Elm worked hard on making a boot, seat with seat belt and control panels for their time machine.

We are looking forward to exploring time with the finished result!

Year 1's Visit from Father Christmas

We were all very excited by our very special visitor.
