On Thursday 3rd March, children throughout the school dressed up as characters from their favourite books to celebrate World Book Day 2016. In school we also ran a competition to design a new front cover for a book of their choice... The winners of this will be announced in assembly on Friday 11th May. Here are Mandarin and Ducklings showing off their superb outfits. You can catch more images of World Book Day in this week's edition of the Tamworth Herald.

PE lessons with Mr Wassall on Tuesday morning are always a highlight of the week for our Ducklings. Mr Wassell's PE sessions for our pre-schoolers are based around fun themes and games designed to develop their balance, co-ordination and control. Through a series of lessons they have been visiting imaginary destinations on Jolly Olly Soccer Island, including Soc-car City, the Pirate ship, the Jungle and the Tournament...
Our school trip to Whittington Barracks was “absolutely stunning”. The years 4 to 6 went on the Thursday 21st January. We left school at 9.30am in cars and arrived in 20 minutes. We were split into two groups, one with a high ranking army man and the other with an elderly couple who lived and fought through the Second World War. Group one first learnt about weapons and uniforms while group two learnt about rationing and evacuations. It was great fun when group two heard an air raid siren and went in an Anderson shelter. Both groups learned about guns, bombs and uniforms in the weapon room.
