The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022

We have had a wonderful time celebrating this amazing moment in history!

On breaking up for half term the children were presented with a special gift from the school in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee. We know that these bears will be much loved and will help to make the occasion memorable and special for our children.

During the Jubilee weekend many children took part in street parties and events within their communities at home. Many more watched the celebrations on the television; from ‘Trooping the Colour’ to the concert (the highlight for many being Paddington Bear!) and the grand pageant. On our return to school children spent time learning about the history of the Queen’s reign and preparing for our own celebration on Friday.

Our celebration began with our concert for the Queen on the playground which was attended by the Deputy Lieutenant for the West Midlands, Simon Topman MBE and Wedny Morton MP. Mr Topman spoke to the children about his role representing the Queen. Wendy Morton presented a prize to Lionel in year 4 who was a runner up in the Queen’s card competition with his fantastic portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. Congratulations Lionel! Congratulations also to ARP1 for winning our ‘bake off’ with their fabulous Jubilee cake!

Our concert concluded with a performance by our fantastic musical theatre club. We then enjoyed our Jubilee picnic and a play on the field. We had a wonderful day and are looking forward to our arts festival in July where parents will be able to come and watch the children perform.

Stunning Sports Days!

Congratulations to all of our children on their fantastic sports days!  We have been so impressed with the children in so many ways.  Their willingness to participate and enjoy taking part, their support of one another and the confidence that they have shown is wonderful.  It has been a pleasure to watch the events and we have some very talented athletes amongst us – well done everyone!


The novelty races were lots of fun and some expert tactics noted, especially in the three legged races along with some more wobbly moments!


It has been a long while since we have been able to have a sports day complete with an audience and the children were amazing! We are so proud of each and every one of them!๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ–๐ŸŒŸ

Happy Easter!

It has been wonderful to hear our children singing their Easter songs at all of the assemblies that we have had this week. Thank you to family members for helping the children with their fabulous Easter decorated eggs and bonnets; we have some very talented and creative children!

We are delighted to announce that our fundraiser for Ukraine raised ยฃ424! We are so proud of our children for doing this, well done everyone! This will be donated to the Salvation Army.

Have a wonderful Easter from all at Rushall!

Ukraine Fundraiser

Yesterday our children held a fund raising afternoon to help all those affected by the terrible situation in Ukraine. We couldn’t be more proud of our children for coming to us with this idea and for their amazing initiative and enthusiasm in organising and holding such an event. Many children made items such as badges and bracelets at home and many were involved in careful planning and organisation of the event. We had a craft area and a penalty shoot out as well as various stalls selling bookmarks, wish bracelets and cakes.

Donations can still be made via our School Money app and all proceeds will be donated to The Salvation Army. https://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/ukraine-crisis-appeal

A very special moment as a group of our brass players performed ‘Lean On Me’.

A massive thank you to the children in year five and six who originally came to us with this idea and to all of year five and six for their help in organising everything. Thank you also to Miss Maeer and ARP for their help with co-ordinating the helpers and enabling the children to lead this event. Well done everyone, you have made us incredibly proud!

Co-operation

As you can see we have had a wonderful response to our enrichment homework on the theme of โ€˜Co-operationโ€™.ย  Children have cited fantastic examples of co-operation within their homes and families as well as within school and the wider world.ย  We are particularly impressed with the detail and thought that has gone into each piece of work; a huge โ€˜well doneโ€™ to Team Rushall!

World Book Day 2022!

We all had a lovely time celebrating the 25th anniversary of World Book Day in school this year. Both staff and children brought in their favourite book and dressed up as their favourite book character. The children also participated in a wide range of activities to celebrate the importance of reading and to promote reading for pleasure. Some of the activities included: WBD quizzes, reading scavenger hunts, shared reading sessions, paired reading sessions, cat walks, guess the character games and inventing their own book character. As you can see from the photos, the children had a wonderful time and couldn’t wait to spend their book token on a book of their choice.

Merry Christmas!

December is always a very special time in school and this year has been no exception. Here are some photos of the excitement growing!

On behalf of all of us at Rushall we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ„

Harvest Festival 2021

Our harvest performances this week have been absolutely stunning and we canโ€™t wait to see the completed films. The enthusiasm shown by the children has been fantastic and their singing has been beautiful. A huge well done to all of our children, we are very proud of you!
