We have discovered that some wood pigeons have made their nest in the ivy outside our school offices. It has been a fantastic opportunity to observe our new school value, ‘caring’ in action as the parent birds care for their two babies. Watch this space for more pigeon news soon!!
We are delighted to welcome our children back to school! We have been so impressed with the maturity and independence they have shown as they have returned. It is wonderful to have our building full of noise and fun again too! We can’t wait to meet all of our youngest children as they begin their journeys with us.
On the 8th May it is the 75th anniversary of VE day – the day that people celebrated the end of World War Two in Europe. When we planned our celebrations back at the beginning of the school year we could never have imagined that we would not be able to do them in the way that we intended. The last few weeks have probably taught us all more about WW2 and how life changed for people than any lesson could possibly have done. We can appreciate how happy people must have felt after enduring six years at war. We know that lots of you will be marking the day at home and maybe having mini tea parties. We would love to hear all about it! We also know that some amazing enrichment homework projects have been completed – these will be displayed proudly when we all return to school.
Here on the Celebration blog we are taking a look back at how we celebrated Remembrance in 2018. We hope that whatever you are doing on the May Bank Holiday VE Day anniversary that you enjoy it, and have a wonderful day with your families.
Stay safe, with lots of love from all of the staff at Rushall XX
We would like to wish all of our children and their families a very Happy Easter! We miss you lots and can’t wait to see you when everything is back to normal. We know how much we will appreciate doing all of the things we usually take for granted after this experience. We look forward to seeing you all soon, until then keep smiling and being the amazing children you are,
With love and best wishes from all of the staff at Rushall XX 🌻🌺🐣🥰
Congratulations to Ellis who achieved ‘Word Millionaire’ status earlier this month on Accelerated Reader. We are very proud of you Ellis and we hope that your love of reading inspires others to read lots too. Keep reading everyone!!
We had a fabulous World Book Day on Thursday which began with a performance by the Hobgoblin theatre group of their show; ‘The Greatest Fairytale Ever Told’.
Following the show the children met with their buddy classes and reading partners to share their favourite books and stories. The children have also produced some fantastic enrichment homework all about reading which is displayed proudly in school.
Thank you to all of the staff for making this such a wonderful day, and to parents for your support with events such as this and your daily support with reading; this is priceless and helps the children develop in so many ways.
We are very proud to receive news that Ava, Fletcher, Jayden and Aaron in Year Two have had their work chosen to be published by the ‘Young Writers’ group. This is a fantastic achievement! We can’t wait to pick up a book and read their stories!
Things were very noisy this afternoon when a wild dragon rampaged around school!
Thankfully it was Early Years celebrating Chinese New Year! The dragon paraded around school followed by an enthusiastic walking band.
We were very lucky yesterday to have a very special visitor in school – DJ Nathan Dawe!
Nathan spoke about his passion for music and how this had started when he began playing the trumpet whilst at school. He told the children all about his work in the music industry and how hard he worked at school and early on while he was building his business. He now has opportunities to travel and work with lots of different artists through his work. What an inspiration for us!
We are incredibly proud of our choir who performed at the ‘Young Voices’ event in Birmingham last week. The children put on a spectacular performance and behaved beautifully throughout the day. Miss Maeer and Miss Hawtin will be re-starting choir on Friday lunchtimes from this week; if this has inspired you please do come and join in!
