Pupil Leadership is in full swing at Wallbrook Primary Academy!

Within the first few weeks of the new school year, our Reading Leaders and Librarians have carried out pupil voice questionnaires, the Pupil Leadership School Council have met the local MP and ran a very successful McMillan cancer coffee morning and the DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Leaders presented a whole school assembly for Black History Month.

Last week, our pupils had a wonderful theatre experience courtesy of the Birmingham Hippodrome as they enjoyed a production on Aakash Odedra’s “Little Murmurs”.

This powerful performance told the heartfelt story of the character’s struggles with dyslexia, showcasing the trials and triumphs faced while confronting personal challenges head on.

Using technology, dance, and humour, "Little Murmurs" offered our pupils a unique insight into the world of those who face obstacles daily. It sparked thought-provoking discussions about success, empathy, and the diverse forms it can take. 🤔💭

This experience reminded us all that challenges can be conquered with creativity and determination and showcased the transformative power of the arts in changing lives for the better. 🌟🎨 🌈🎭

Our pupils were certainly left inspired, knowing that they are capable of achieving their dreams, no matter the circumstances. 🌠💫

Some of our pupils have been spotted reading in some unusual places - take a look at our fabulous pictures! Thank you to all of our families for sending and sharing these with us and and for joining Wallbrook in celebrating a love for reading with our pupils.

This week our year 3 and 4 pupils enjoyed a trip to Birmingham's Sea Life Centre! From colourful fish to giant sea turtles and sharks, they explored and learned so much about the wonders of our world's oceans. They even made a pledge to help protect our seas and marine wildlife after learning about the effects of waste on our planet. What a fantastic day!
