Year 4 create a buzz wire game

Friday, 12 April 2019

Children have enjoyed learning about electrical games and how they function in DT. To conclude the unit, class 4 have created a buzz wire game. They had to construct a circuit that included a battery, wires, a buzzer, copper, Blu tack and tape. The aim of the game is to navigate the wand along the wire frame form one end to the other without touching the wire; it requires a cool head and a steady hand.

 

Easter Surprise

Friday, 12 April 2019

During assembly today, Mr Masterson surprised the whole school with an Easter egg. The children’s outstanding work, behaviour and manners were celebrated. We are proud of all our children at St John Bosco!

The teachers were also given an Easter egg, which was a lovely surprise.

On behalf of St John Bosco we wish you all a Happy and Holy Easter!

Sandwell Basketball Finals

Thursday, 11 April 2019

Our basketball team had performed well to qualify for these finals, with over 30 teams entering from across Sandwell. Today saw a league played between the best 6 schools. We played well throughout against tough opposition and always remained in the games through hard work and good defending. Overall we won 2, drew 1 and lost 2. This was very positive for us. Unfortunately this left us just a point behind second place as we missed out on the medals. Well done to the team though who did Bosco proud.

Easter Bonnet Parade

Thursday, 11 April 2019

The children were very creative with their Easter Bonnets. All children who participated did a fabulous job at displaying their work during the parade. The competition was tough.

Two winners were picked from each class.

Thank you to all the parents who came along to support.

Penny Race

Thursday, 11 April 2019

The whole school enjoyed the Lenten Penny Race, the behaviour was brilliant and an outstanding amount of money was raised for charity. Congratulations to class 4 for making the longest line.

Well done to all the children who brought in pennies.

Stations of the Cross

Thursday, 11 April 2019

Class 5 did a brilliant job at leading the Stations of the Cross. They all read with great passion as we remembered the events that led up to the crucifixion of Jesus.

Thank you to those parents who came to support class 5.

Year 2 Visit Oak House

Wednesday, 10 April 2019

Class 2 had a wonderful day at local Sandwell museum, Oak House. We went there to learn more about the Great Fire of London and what life was like around 1666. It was an amazing day! The children loved it and learnt so much. They enjoyed the playground including sand and a pirate ship! Everyone dressed up a servants for the morning and learnt about all of the jobs that needed doing around such a large house. In the afternoon we discovered more about the fire and the diary entries of Samuel Pepys. The children’s behaviour was impeccable throughout the trip. A big well done to everyone and thank you to all of the adults who came along. A super day!

Cricket in Y5

Wednesday, 10 April 2019

We have really enjoyed playing cricket this half term. Each week we learnt a new skill such as: bowling, catching, batting,  throwing and fielding. In small groups we had the chance to create and share our own games.

People who help us!

Tuesday, 9 April 2019

In the Early Years we have been learning about people who help us. We had a visit from a paramedic called Gareth who brought all of his equipment in to show us. Some of us had a go at using it. We tested Mrs York’s pulse and Mrs Hanson’s temperature!

 

Gareth brought an Ambulance for us to have a look at. We listened to the loud sirens and saw the flashing lights, then we went to have a look inside.

We also had a visit from Nicki and Adam from the Police force. Some of us tried on the police uniform.

 

We went to look at a Police car and Adam played the sirens for us. They were so loud! He then showed us the different things which are kept in the car to use in an emergency.

 

We’ve really enjoyed learning about the emergency services and we look forward to having more visits in the future.
