Learning about Braille
Today, Dahl class had a great afternoon learning more about Braille. Finnley was an incredible teacher as he helped his classmates to find out more about the Perkins Brailler, a type of Braille typewriter, and Lego Braille. They then worked together to crack the Braille codes and find the answers!
Wilson Class Art
Wilson class had a great day creating their Viking collages and the results were spectacular! Using a variety of resources including watercolour paints and coloured pencils, the children learnt a variety of sketching and shading techniques to create stunning pieces of art.
Dahl's Trip to the Safari Park
As the official partner school for West Midland's Safari Park, we are often invited to try out their new educational activities and exhibits. This time is was the children in Dahl class who were lucky enough to spend the day in their new outdoor classrooms. As you can see from the pictures, the children had a great time interacting with the mini-beasts they'd been learning about in the sessions.
It was an incredible, action-packed day for Year Three, who absolutely loved their Viking Experience! Their guide for the day, Olaf, taught them all about trading, raiding and invading as well as recreating a sea voyage from Norway to England, followed by a battle between the Vikings and Anglo Saxons - certainly not your average Thursday!
Ten LKS2 pupils represented BPS at a Tri-Golf Festival on Friday at Bewdley Leisure Centre on Friday. With the help of Sports Leaders from The Bewdley School, the children took part in a variety of fun, energetic golf games and worked really well together as a team.
Blist Hill Victorian Museum
LKS2 visited Blist Hill Victorian town to experience what life would have been like in Victorian times. The children and staff enjoyed going back in time to see what poor and wealthy homes were like, experience a lesson in a Victorian school and complete a candle dipping activity. The children visited the bank to exchange their £3 spending money for old Victorian pennies and farthings. It was really fun browsing the wide range of shops and seeing what their money would buy - although most money was spent in the sweet shop and bakery! Everyone looked fabulous in their Victorian costumes and it was a pleasure to receive lots of positive comments from the museum staff about the children’s enthusiasm and behaviour. Once again, a credit to BPS!
LKS2 had a great afternoon using the parachute for their PE lesson. The best part was creating a mushroom. Great team building skills.

We took part in a range of new experiences and learned some acquired some great new skills during our Woodland Wonder topic. Whilst on our trip to the Wyre Forest, we enjoyed using our map skills to complete an orienteering activity as well as identifying a range of creatures whilst pond dipping and bug hunting. We loved getting a close up look at some of the creatures we found especially the toad in the pond and the frog under the log! We are in the process of finishing off our bug hotels and look forward to posting them on here when they are complete.
LKS2 spent the whole of their last sequence of learning immersed in the Art World. Whether they were observing, creating, designing or reviewing the children’s work was heavily influenced by the work of a range of famous artists but in particular that of Andy Warhol, Vincent van Gogh and LS Lowry. Within Art lessons themselves, the children have improved in a range of skills in attempting to recreate famous pieces of Art such as “Sunflowers” and “Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh and “Going to Work” by LS Lowry.
