Creative Enterprise at Wheelers Lane Primary
Could you run your own business? Produce your own ideas, develop them, build your own product and then market it? The children at Wheelers Lane Primary can. The opportunity to prove this came on Wednesday 8th September as children from Year 1 to Year 6 gathered together to face one challenge: to build their own company.

|A couple of weeks ago, we went on a year 6 trip to Safeside: a small indoor village designed to help us to learn more about risks and staying safe in everyday life. We were very impressed by the realistic house, bus, alleyway and other areas of the centre that we visited.|
|FC recently enjoyed a class trip to the farm. We were able to feed the chickens and collected 10 eggs! Then we went to see the sheep and their new lambs and were able to fed them and stroke them. We visited the cows in their cow shed and even saw the farmer! Back at school we have been learning all about the animals at the farm, how to look after pets and all about the animals in the jungle.|
|3W Trip to the Nature Centre
As part of our science topic, to find out more about animal habitats and adaptation, Class 3W visited the Birmingham Nature Centre recently.
At the Nature Centre, we saw loads of creatures. We saw nocturnal animals, venom snakes, swimming otters and spikey porcupines.
|3C visited the Toby Carvery at the Robin Hood Inn as part our learning about healthy eating. This trip began in an exciting way, as we travelled using the 76 bus with each bus stop drawing us ever closer to our destination. Once we disembarked and travelled across the island to the restaurant, we sat eagerly at the beautifully laid out tables. The children were divided into four teams named after nutritious fruit and vegetables and readied themselves to learn all about the healthy food the carvery had to offer. An array of fruits and vegetables were given to each group, where they were challenged to name them and discuss their shape, size and texture. Stickers were given for those who accurately identified the foods and then they were sorted into those that grew under or above ground.|
|On Tuesday 2nd of June, my class and I visited Slimbridge (a wetland habitat). 4H had great fun seeing all the different birds including flamingos, however we all agreed that the North American otters were the best. As well as having cute, tiny whiskers, they eagerly demonstrated their aerobatic skills by diving in and out of the water quick as flashes.|
|On Friday 6th June, 2014 class 3B went to the Nature Centre as part of our science topic about animals. We learnt about animal’s habitats, adaptations and food chains. When we arrived we met our guide and she was very knowledgeable. First of all we went into the classroom and looked at some taxidermy.|
|Over the last few weeks, Year 5 have been taking part in a six week programme called Villa Vitality to teach pupils about healthy lifestyles and support them to make some healthy changes. The first day of the Villa Vitality programme was held at school.|
|2HM have had quite an exciting start to the summer term. We visited Twycross Zoo on the 6th June where we managed to see lots of different animals and the way that they move, eat and live. It was very interesting and we learnt a lot about the different animals.|
