In Art, we have used pastels to create our own space themed abstract art based on the work of Peter Thorpe who is an American artist with a keen interest in rockets and space.
Castle House School is a Co-educational Preparatory School set in the heart of Newport in Shropshire
Operating as usual
A busy day at the Newport Show, 2nd in the potato competition (winning Primary School so we will take that as a 1st), pasta making with Chef Nick and photography winners had their prizes awarded too. A good day out for all and we met lots of lovely people too.
Children from across Key Stage 2 took part in the annual athletics tournament at Adam’s today. They did extremely well competing against other local schools. Well done to all who took part.
Final rehearsals are well underway for our production of ‘The Jungle Book’ this evening
One week to go! Next Wednesday we will be staging ‘The Jungle Book’ in Hamilton Hall, Haberdashers’ Adams.
It promises to be a spectacular production.
One potato, two potato(es!), three potato(es!), four! While Year 4 were busy at Tettenhall College today, Year 3 harvested our potato crop ready for the Newport Show competition. Fingers crossed for July 8th!

Using this link https://buytickets.at/castlehouseschool/947194 or QR Code you can now book places on our summer holiday clubs. Please note that due to a reduced demand we are no longer able to offer a holiday club with the main group for children of nursery age. Children of nursery age may, however, apply for the limited availability we have in our nursery. If you would like a nursery holiday place, please email [email protected]
Lots of award winners today. Well done all!
Another important milestone for CHS. Today we resigned our Armed Forces Covenant and were presented with our bronze ERS by Major Keith Taylor, OC 123 (Telford) Sqn RLC.
Art Club looked at painting landscapes on Tuesday. The children drew their own scene and then went on to paint them with Acrylics, watercolours or a mixture of both.
The Sixth Form students from Haberdasher’s Adams returned for STEM club today where the children were looking at creating gliders and the scientific principles involved in flight.
Mrs Butler saw this on the way to open day yesterday, it reminded her of the children walking in after playtime... and how close we are to nature at Castle House.
STEM club … have you ever found yourself trapped one side of a crocodile infested swamp, with invisible land mines and the need to transport a wheel, and your whole team against the clock and across this obstacle to your escape vehicle located at the far side! Teamwork and problem solving.
In STEM club, inspired by the scaffolding in school, the pupils built their own towers out of spaghetti and marsh mallows
Archery club have definitely got their eye in. They are getting more and more accurate every week.
Forest school saw the Key Stage 2 children exploring the rhythms and music they could create with the things they could find around them. They were extremely creative and the range of sounds they created were a wonder to experience.
Key Stage 1 have greatly enjoyed their morning at Blists Hill so far. After helping the Post Mistress safely deliver letters, the children have also had chance to exchange their money, dip their own candles and investigated just some of the Victorian houses and businesses, with a tasty reward from the bakery! With a reminder from the policeman that children should be seen and not heard, it’s hoped that no one will be needing the cane when we visit the school after a well deserved picnic.
A little belated, apologies, but important nevertheless. Well done to our golfers last week who represented the school, particularly the Year 3/4 team who came third winning bronze medals in their class. Superb.
We will be running holiday clubs at Castle House School for the whole of the Summer for children in Nursery to Year 6 and are asking all parents for an expression of interest at this stage. Your children do not need to attend Castle House School.

The Year 5 and 6 children spent a wonderful morning at the Deer Park taking part in the annual photography workshop ahead of this years Newport Show. The weather was stunning and they managed to capture lots and lots of photographs for the competition.
Mrs Butler has been representing the NSPCC today by delivering the Speak Out Stay Safe programme featuring "Buddy" the mascot. KS1 and KS2 have all taken part in this serious training on how to keep themselves safe. They have a fun way to remember the Childline Phone number, ask them to show you!
Making the most of the lovely weather, Reception and Key Stage 1 have today taken their Art lesson outside. As part of their topic of Houses and Homes, the children were tasked with drawing a view from a window. With such wonderful views outside of the classrooms, it was no wonder that many chose to draw the school grounds. With Victorians in mind, children were set the additional challenge of using charcoal to draw with and headed outside to capture every detail, with some wonderful results.
Awards assembly today rather than yesterday due to a trip. Well done all!
Blind fold trail went wonderfully and then the Year 3 & 4’s ran around the site in their Orienteering. We are setting off shortly for our return to school
Tidying chores and the nights campfire. They went to sleep well and now they’re waking up and getting sorted for Day 2.
Catastrophe on camp … but only when the group had to make their beds! Mayhem and disorder followed.
Other activities, however, were far more successful, particularly caving. Bravery and teamwork were the order of the day to get everyone through the various caves, and ‘the black hole of doom!’
A great first day
And from camp … Bridge building only saw 5 fall in! Great work teams!
Celebrations of the coronation of King Charles III have continued today as children in Years 5 & 6 partnered with Key Stage 1 to take part in an art afternoon. After discussing all things British, the children worked in mixed groups to create portraits of the King using a variety of techniques and materials, with some very creative results!
Year 3&4 residential. Teambuilding activities have started!
Congratulations to our Superstars which were awarded today.
After an inspiring Tiny World after school club, Mrs Jones’ class setup their own ‘sweet’ shop this week. Using their knowledge of British coins, Year 1 had to decide which of 5ish coins was most appropriate to use, whilst Year 2 acted as shopkeepers and had to calculate and give the correct amount of change. They were then visited by the Reception class, who have also been using coins in their Maths sessions and helped them to count out the correct amount of money, using 1, 2 and 5 pence coins.
A few photos from the last night and this morning at Condover. The Year 5 and 6 had a fantastic time and have now returned for nice relaxing long weekend. What a great adventure!
Children from Reception joined Key Stage 1 to complete a house building task. Each group was set the task of working as a team to build houses for the 3 little pigs. There were some very creative ideas, with the winning team even attempting to create a foundation for their straw house to give it more stability and prevent it being blown over.
Condover. No words needed, just look at the pictures!
On a day where nationally many children were again disrupted by teacher’s strikes, it was business as usual at Castle House School, and a trip to The Exotic Zoo
