Sports Days 2023!

We have had wonderful weather for our sporting events this year and it was lovely to see our children showcasing their talents! From the traditional egg and spoon to the sprints, relays and throwing events it was great to see all of the skills learned in action.

We are incredibly proud of our children, not only for their sporting success, but also their willingness to participate and their sportsmanship which was superb. We heard so many children being cheered on and encouraged through all of the events and it was lovely to see everyone being happy to have a go.

A special mention must go to our ARP children who joined in with great gusto and enthusiasm – well done ARP!!

Congratulations also to our toddlers and parents who were very good sports for joining in! We hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did; we are hoping that the beautiful weather continues for our Arts Festival which is coming up on July 6th.

Our Coronation Celebrations!

We have had a wonderful time celebrating the coronation of King Charles III here at Rushall! We began with ‘Eco-Week’ where we were inspired by the King’s love of nature to dedicate a week to planting and tending to our beautiful school gardens and grounds.

During ‘Eco-Week’ we also had the opportunity to take part in a ‘Junk Drumming’ workshop with Bev Cullen. We had a brilliant time taking part in coronation themed drumming using recyclable materials.

During the week leading to the coronation we were very busy creating bunting, paper chains and baking to prepare for our celebration picnic on Friday.

On Friday 5th May we held a special picnic which began with a singing performance on the playground. Our brass band played the National Anthem and our drumming club led the singing.

Our special visitors, Wendy Morton (local MP), David Frost (Deputy Lieutenant of the West Midlands) and Janet Catto (School Governor) presented the children with special seed packets to commemorate the occasion.

The special visitors also judged our spectacular coronation cakes; some of which were made by our parents!

Our picnic took place on the playground before we moved to the field for a play in the sunshine!
