This week the West Midlands Fire Service came to the school to teach the children all about fire safety.
The base children were all very excited and answered some very interesting questions and made some excellent comments about fire safety, what the firemen do and how important their role is in society. They were even more excited once the sirens started blaring and really felt like they were part of what was an important demonstration.
Yesterday we took part in our first Athletics competition of the year, the competition was held at the Billesley Indoor tennis centre as it offers fantastic facilities. We were one of 8 schools to participate on the day with all teams consisting of 9 boys and 9 girls who competed in either a track, field or both track and field events. The standard of the competition was very high and the children on the day were second to none, their attitudes, behaviour and competitiveness saw them finish in first place by a massive 42 points! Well done to everyone involved, another competition won this year.
This week the children are trying to solve a mystery. A strange suitcase has arrived in RB2 and it has been up to the boys to rummage through the contents and find clues as to who the owner could be.
We found some hi-tech binoculars,
a camera, clothes and a notebook containing case files for a very interesting case.
The boys compiled all of their clues and in true Sherlock Holmes style deduced that the owner of this mysterious package is a 12 year old child under cover in a school called Ashley.
To delve into this mystery, the boys are going to write their own story to determine what actually happened to Ashley and bust this case wide open!
In science this term, RB are learning all about light. So far we have been studying the sources of light and where it comes from…
The RB2 boys demonstrated how we see objects from a light source.
We also did an experiment to test how large shadows get the further away a light source is…
Here are their findings;
We will continue to shine a light on this phenomenon and research further to see where this exciting topic can take us.
