A huge thank you to all parents who came to the year 1 art gallery this afternoon. We hope you were impressed with their pictures which were in the style of Eric Carle. They certainly enjoyed being tour guides and handing out refreshments!

Another Brilliant Author 'Being Brilliant' at Wheelers Lane

Once again we have been incredibly lucky to have an internationally recognised author (no.1 in BRAZIL ooooooooohhhhhhh!!) visiting the school to inspire the children and motivate our Year 6 to be BRILLIANT!

Andy Cope is the author of the 'Spy Dog' series of books http://www.spydog451.co.uk/ . He spoke to all the children from Year 2 to Year 6, helping them to write their own versions of his funny stories.

Not only this, but Andy worked with all of Year 6 in the afternoon showing them how to be a 2 percenter. Children left motivated, and hopefully made all the parents feel as special as they really are that evening.

What a BRILLIANT! day. Thanks so much Andy. Let's stay POSITIVE!

What fantastic Talent!

The fantastically popular Wheelers Lane's Got Talent EYFS/KS1 Show was a roaring success once again this year! With acts ranging from singing and dancing to gymnastics and magic, there was something for everyone. This year's judges included the winners from last year - Megan and Katie - as well as parents and teachers. You can see a brilliant picture of Judge Carlin below.

Congratulations to the winner - Ava from 2HM who recited a piece of music on the piano from memory. The two runners up were Ben in 2HL with his magically lit up thumb dance and those crazy dancers from RC - Tim, Caine and Freddie.

Well done to everybody involved - we can't wait for the KS2 show in June!

Year 3 get snappy (in a good way!)

During Spring Term, for our local environment topic, Year 3 had the privilege of working alongside Jonathan Lee, a professional photographer (who is also a parent at our school). We learnt all about taking photos from different angles and enjoyed photographing colourful objects. We even went to Kings Heath high street and photographed different buildings and unusual patterns! 

Follow the link below to see our talented photos. We feel like professional photographers!

Break from SATs Revision

Today we were given a break from SATs revision. The whole year group had a wonderful time at Kings Heath Park (even the teachers got involved). We had a basketball and football match. Also, we played on the swings and the zip wire. We had a brilliant time!

London Marathon

On  Friday the 22nd of April, members of the School Council devoted the whole day to help children, from nursery to year 6 run or mini London marathon and raise money for a well – deserved charity VICTA. The reason why this event took place, was to support one of our year 4 teachers (Mr Knight), who ran the actual London marathon, and made it to the much desired finish line, in an impressive time of 3hr 24 minutes. Throughout the exciting day, a total of £553.88 was raised by the children, members of staff and generous parents of Wheelers Lane Primary School. All in all, it was a successful and highly regarded day by every participant.

Spook Teaching spooks out Key Stage 2!

Last week the children were spooked out by Steve Delaney. Steve came in character and created an amazing spectacle of 270 children all writing at the same time on the floor in our large hall. It was incredible to witness. And the quality of the writing was scarily good (so much for smaller class sizes producing better progress!). He also introduced the children to the grotty process of creating blood cakes, though we are not sure it was an appetising experience.

The children thought it was ‘awesome’ and ‘totally brilliant’. Steve is inspired by his dad’s Spooks books which have recently been made into the Hollywood film The Seventh Son starring Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore. Blockbuster!

Candy Gourlay inspires Wheelers Lane Primary School

We cannot express to you enough how amazing it was to have Candy Gourlay visit the school during Book Week. Candy spoke to all of Key Stage 2 about her journey from Manila (where natural disasters were common and she was part of the revolution to bring down Marcos) to becoming an award-winning author. Her story was inspiring, not only because of her adventures and explanations of constructing narrative, but also because she is such an engaging and amusing speaker.

Both the staff and children alike were inspired. A group of children in Year 5 had a writing workshop with her and she was generous enough to read through the writing of 12 children in Year 6 so she could share how their writing impacted on her as a reader.

She left the school with us all buzzing. Thank you so much Candy. Find out more about her here: http://www.candygourlay.com/

We are a school that:

Our vision is to:

  • Celebrate the differences which make us all so diverse and which enrich our school.

  • Equip our children with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to achieve success, become lifelong learners and active citizens.

  • Work in partnership with parents, carers and the community.
