On Monday 16th March, Years 3 & 5 were lucky enough to participate in a drumming workshop led by Jeff Rich. The pupils learnt about the history of drums, the many different types that there are and how they are played. The children also played alongside Jeff, accompanying him on a variety of percussion instruments. We hope that the amazing drum masterclass has encouraged and inspired many pupils to become involved in music in the future.
Merrion's Wood March 2020
The children who didn't go on the Year 4 residential visit to Woodlands Camp, had a wonderful time at Merrion's Wood Local Nature Reserve. We played games, made "nests" and built fairy houses, and thoroughly enjoyed being outside in the natural environment.
World Book Day 2020
Well done and thank you to everyone who took the time to dress-up for our Oliver Twist themed World Book Day today. You all looked fabulous!
The children enjoyed learning about life in Victorian Times as well as writing scripts based on the Charles Dickens classic and acting them out.
The Science of Being Healthy and Active Festival!
For the second year running, we have held a two week festival of activities with the aim of helping our children and school community to become more active (and healthier) as well as developing our science enquiry skills.
Thanks to the brilliant weather, our sports' days went ahead without a hitch as did all of our activities during an action-packed ten days of activities. Highlights include the visit of gymnastics Olympian and multiple championship medallist, Kristian Thomas (what an inspirational morning!). We've participated in Judo, Capoeira, Aikido, Yoga and lots of other activities. Our 'Skip2BFit' workshops created skipping mania in our playgrounds as children (and adults) went skipping crazy! All classes participated in 'Daily Mile's' around Delves Common and The Tiger Playing field.
Many thanks to Wayne from WM Judo, Sam the Maestra capoeiraista from Birmingham's Brazilian Centre of Culture, Kristian Thomas, Walsall MBC's Outdoor Spaces team (for the trampolines), Mr Peckett (senior!), Miss Dakar and David from 'Skip2BFit'.
Football Match Report v Walsall Wood.
Delves 6 - Walsall Wood 1.
Under a blazing sun, our team finished their league fixtures on fire!
We have produced a number of good team performances but we left the best to last this season!
Cameron made a boys' own hero debut that Roy of the Rovers would be envious of - scoring five goals including bullet like shots that left the visiting goalkeeper with no chance to save. There were lots of great performances across the pitch for Delves, well done team for a fine performance. Thank you also to Mr Sumner for all of his support this year.
Year 5/6 Girls Flag Bearers at Walsall FC.
On Saturday 14th April, ten of our Y5/6 girls were flag bearers greeting the two teams (Walsall FC v AFC Wimbledon) on to the pitch before an important EFL League One game. The girls were at the ground from 11am. They participated in a football coaching session on the club's training facility and, along with their families, had tickets to watch the game. The sun shone and everyone had a fantastic day!
