On Wednesday 20th June 2018, Hedgehogs Class spent the morning at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. First they encountered 'Dippy' the full skeleton cast of a Diplodocus  (21.3 metre long, 4.3 metres wide, and 4.25 metre high) which is on loan from The Natural History  Museum London! Pupils learned how one group of Dinosaurs (Theropods) survived and evolved into birds which exist today. Next stop was a visit to the Staffordshire Hoard, where pupils learned about life in Anglo Saxon times and even played an Anglo Saxon game.

In Literacy we have been learning all about the legends and mythical creatures of Brazil. The one legend that we learnt about was Saci-Perere. Saci wears a magical red cap that enables him to disappear and reappear whenever he wishes. He grants wishes to anyone who manages to trap him or steal his magic cap.

Diamond Trips

When a pupil earns every single point during a day we issue them with a Diamond Day certificate to celebrate what is in effect a perfect day. Pupils get an immediate reward of a snack or drink which they collect as they leave the school.

Those pupils that earn ten Diamond Day certificates within one half-term are then rewarded with a trip out to Melbicks Garden Centre where they are given the opportunity to choose food and a drink from the Costa Coffee café. The pupils are expected to interact with the staff and the general public in an appropriate manner during their time in the café; choosing their reward, ordering it, waiting patiently if it is hot food and socialising together.

I was very pleased today to be taking so many of our pupils out on the Diamond Reward Trip:

Miss D Morrison and I were joined by thirteen pupils ranging from Year 7 right through to Year 11, including Harley, Cameron, Marcus, Jayson and Ryan.

All thirteen pupils were exemplary in their behaviour and enjoyed their food and drinks. We were then able to visit the tropical fish shop and choose a number of fish for our community fish tank.
