Year 4 have been contacted by The Egyptian Tourist board. They heard how fantastic we were at finding out about Ancient Egypt and now they want us to help encourage more people to come to Modern Egypt. We will now have to work hard to find out about what Egypt is like today. We will be researching the climate, land use and what sorts of things there are to see and do in Egypt for visitors. You could find brochures from travel agencies to find pictures of things to see and do in Egypt and bring them in to share […]

We are so proud of our amazing Year 4 Cross Country team who won the Redditch First Schools’ competition on Friday afternoon. We were placed 1st overall out of 7 schools, with the lowest score of 197 points, which is fantastic! We are delighted with this achievement and could not be prouder of our very hard working and dedicated team. We would like to thank all the parents and carers who came to cheer us on at Birchensale Middle School – you were a brilliant cheering squad and the children were really pleased to have you all there. Your support […]
On Wednesday morning we put on our P.E kits and waterproof trainers ready for some cross country running at Trinity High School. It was the first stage of the Cross country inter schools competition and we were up against St Stephens First school. The girls were up first and went out ready to warm up for the race. The course was very challenging as it had rained the previous night so the mud was quite thick, and it involved an uphill run! However we were up for the challenge. The boys ran next and after some initial confusion about the […]
Year 4 had a very enjoyable visit to the Jewish Progressive Synagogue in Birmingham this week. We were able to have a tour of the building and learn more about the Jewish faith. We were really pleased to be able to see the Ark and the 4 scrolls kept within there, and we learnt interesting facts such as if a scroll is no longer needed, it is not allowed to be thrown away. Instead, it would be buried, or passed on to another Synagogue to use. The children also enjoyed learning more about the story of Moses and the Jewish […]
Year 4 had a fantastic visit from the amazing time traveller Proffesor McGinty. The children were taken back in time to learn all about life in Ancient Egypt. They explored a range of artefacts including Egyptian bread (containing cow dung!), a mummy, amulets and clothes/ jewellery worn at that time. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to McGinty’s tales, and he had us roaring with laughter! We are now experts in all things Egyptian and cannot wait to continue our learning back in the classroom.
