Alcester Primary Cluster Rowing Competition

A superb team effort from Yr 6 at the Alcester Primary Cluster Rowing completion today at Alcester Academy! Working in teams of four against five other schools they finished in fantastic fourth and fifth positions out of seven places! They all showed amazing team work and sportsmanship giving 100% in gruelling multiple timed races and as always their behaviour was impeccable. Well done boys !

Y3/4 Visit to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

​This term our topic is Ancient Egypt so the children were very excited to take part in a Mummification workshop at the Museum. They learned the procedures using a large Egyptian. We all went to the Ancient Egypt gallery to look at the artefacts, which included mummified cats and a crocodile! 

Once back in school, the children performed a mummifcation ceremony in Sharing Assembly.

Year 5/6 trip to Stratford

Year 5/6 spent the day in Stratford-Upon Avon to round off their topic on Shakespeare. They learnt about Tudor buildings and what life would have been like in the time of Shakespeare. They enjoyed the workshop at Shakespeare's schoolroom and Guildhall and visited Shakespeare's grave at Holy Trinity church. It was a lovely day and great to appreciate the fantastic historical and cultural heritage on our doorstep. Thank you to parents for your support and transporting your children on the day.

Year 5 curriculum day at Alcester Academy

Our children joined other year 5s from local primary schools at Alcester Academy for a fun-filled day of learning in English, Maths and Science. They had a great time working in teams, mixing with other children and finding out about secondary school. They even got to make a bath bomb to take home.

Alcester/Studley Area Athletics

​Well done to all of the children who took part in the Alcester/Studley Area Athletics competition after school last week.  It was a very hot afternoon on the field of Alcester Academy, but all of the children showed super team spirit and did their best in both field and track events. 

In the field events we came away with four medals, 3 bronze (Y3 boys long jump, Y5 girls howler, Y6 girls long jump) and 1 silver (Y5 boys howler).  In the track events we were awarded a bronze medal in the Y5 girls 600m and a silver medal in the Y6 girls sprint.  Well done to everyone, what a super achievement.

Thank you to those parents who came along to the event to support our school and children.

African Children's Choir concert

The Great Alne School choir were lucky enough to have the opportunity to sing  with the world famous African Children's Choir, along with seven other local schools. They got to meet some of the African children over lunch and rehearse with them in the afternoon. During the evening concert at Stratford Artshouse, our children sang beautifully and had a fantastic time watching the awe-inspiring singing, dancing and drumming from the African children. Thank you to parents for supporting the concert and helping with transport.

Year 3/4 Local Schools' Football Tournament

​We were fortunate to be invited to a local schools' football tournament. There were 12 schools in total split into two leagues. We were in league 2 and played 5 matches.

Our first match was a 2-0 loss for us against Dunnington but the boys were not disheartened. Next, we had a last minute goal scored by Welford to finish 1-0. Our third match, against St. Nics resulted in a brilliant 2-0 win to us (goals scored by Matthew and Louca). The fourth match was another great win for us against Bidford (2-1 - both goals scored by Louca), with some impressive blocking by Ibrahim. Our final match in the league was against Coughton ending in a 0-0 draw.

The boys finished in third position in our league. They played brilliantly throughout, showing good sportmanship and excellent behaviour. Well done to all the team.

Thank you to all parents who helped with transporting the team and to those who supported the team.

Visit to Chedworth Roman Villa

​Y3/4 had a super visit to Chedworth Roman Villa. They learned all about how the villa was first discovered and saw the remains of the baths complex with some wonderful mosaics. The children had an opportunity to handle materials which gave them an insight into life in Roman Britain. They also learned how to grind herbs for 'medicine' and about the rather gruesome practices of Roman doctors. grinding herbs.jpg

Year 5/6 South Warwickshire Tag Rugby Tournament

​On Thursday 27th April we went to Claverdon Rugby Club for the South Warwickshire Tag Rugby Tournament. There were 10 schools involved in the tournament, split into 2 leagues.

We played 5 matches in total, unfortunately not winning any but we did score several trys and played very well as a team. The players were all great sports and they enjoyed themselves, they were a credit to our school.

Thank you to all parents who helped transport the team and to those who braved the cold to stay and support the team.
