A group of Year 3 pupils were out in our allotment today. We planted more potatoes, pea seedlings, weeded and caught up on what was growing at the moment. The onions are growing well, as are the radish seeds. The potatoes are just starting to emerge from the earth too!

We will be having a Coronation Party in school this Friday. We would like the children to wear red, white and blue clothes as part of the celebration.
In preparation for the Coronation of King Charles III, Year 4 have been finding out coronations and have made their own crowns. To make our crowns as environmentally friendly as possible we sewed them using string, leaves and no glitter! It was the first time many of us had done any sewing. Well done Year 4 your crowns look amazing!
Last week, as part of their 'Food' mini-adventure, Nursery were out in our allotment. We looked at the life cycle of plants and found how out that lots grow from seed. We looked at different seeds, and saw there were lots of different sizes. We started off doing some weeding to prepare the ground for our seeds. We then planted potatoes, onions, carrots, beetroot, radishes and spring onions. It was fun seeing what else lived in the soil, and we cant wait to see our plants starting to grow!
Our children were given a special tactile-audio gift from Living Paintings charity to commemorate King Charles III’s coronation.
Today has been Spanish Day at Chuckery. It was lovely to see everyone dressed up. Pupils have taken part in lots of different activities today, the flamenco lessons were a big hit! Thank you Miss Tonks!
Please make sure you’ve checked which classes are open and which are closed tomorrow
Year 3 have been finding out about Life Cycles this week, and to support their learning they have been pond dipping. They found out about some of the animals which live in water. They also observed their finds carefully to identify and sketch them. The children were very careful when handling the creatures and they were all returned back to the pond safely. It was amazing to see just how many different creatures we found!
Eid Mubarak to all our families celebrating today and over the weekend

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the discos organised for after school tomorrow (30/3/23)have been postponed. They will be rearranged for next term. Sorry for the disappointment this may cause.
Jumblies and archery were fab. It's been a lovely morning to be out in the gorgeous grounds of Loosehill Hall. Lunch and then we are off! See you soon (pick up from class 10)
Good morning Chuckery! We have all had a great nights sleep (quite a few of us needed waking up)and we are nearly packed. After breakfast we will finish packing and then it's archery and jumblies (a search game around the grounds of the hall).
Lastly a few photos from our gem panning session. It was amazing swirling the sand and watching the gems come to the surface. Everyone has a bag of their own gems to take home!
Wow what a great afternoon! We explored the views of different people who live locally, through 'The Hat Game'. Then we tested our rockets from yesterday. In this team activity we needed to build a rocket which would get an egg as high as possible without it breaking. Then we went into an indoor cave system at the hostel before dinner! Phew
Our walk along the Castleton valley was lovely this morning. There was some rain and plenty of mud. We have just finished lunch and after a quick change we will be testing our bottle rockets from last night.
Good morning! We have all had a great sleep and breakfast was lovely. We are just off on a walk along the valley towards Castleton.
We built our own shelters this afternoon. Lots more teamwork, leadership and problem solving. Some very creative shelters were built. Then it was a quick change of muddy boots for indoor shoes, hand washing and then dinner.
We have just finished our fire lighting. Lots of resilience and teamwork from everyone!
We have eaten our lunch and had a fantastic time playing in the grounds. We are just about to start our afternoon activities. Fire lighting and den building!
Year 4 have arrived at Castleton! We are just unloading our bags. Everyone was amazing on the journey. A few even slept!

Year 1’s mini adventure is all about a train ride— so what should we do? We travelled down to Walsall Rail Station and we learned about the platforms, track, signals, lights and lots of other things while we waited for our train to arrive. When our train came (we were on Platform 1) we all boarded safely and found seats. Everyone was very excited about the different things we could see. We went through quite a big tunnel just after leaving the station. For lots of us it was our first time on a train. When we reached Hednesford we waved goodbye to our train - yesterday Class 5 walked over to Platform 2 for the return journey (it was raining a lot!). Today Class 4 were able to walk to the park to eat their lunch and had lots of fun in the playground before they returned to the station. We loved every minute of it!
Good morning, We first put our tents up after a quick demonstration. Then we settled in with our sleeping bags and pillows. Then it was time for an expedition to the canteen for our dinner. We spent the evening like explorers, learning to tie knots and playing a range of games - Uno was a big favourite! Then it was time for a quick film and we changed into our pyjamas. A quick story and then it was bed time. We were all very tired and excited to get into our tents. After a fairly quiet night, we packed everything away and had breakfast ready for our day.
Good morning from Camp Chuckery ! Our year 5 children have had a wonderful night in our “School survival camp” and now have a full morning ahead of breakfast , packing up and camp craft to follow.
Reading workshops are being held on Wednesday 8th March for parents with children in Reception and Nursery. Please return your letter to your child's class teacher so we know how many to expect. If you've not had a letter please ask the class teacher or at the office.
As part of their 'Explorers' mini adventure Year 5 visited the Arboretum today. We started off looking at maps in the classroom. We learned about keys and six figure grid references. Then we navigated to the Arboretum and set up our own shelters to protect us from the weather. After lunch in our dens we took part in some team building activities. Well done class 12 you were amazing!
We hope you all have a great half term holiday. See you all on Monday 27th February.
Our last morning has been a busy one. High ropes orienteering and archery. The high ropes was challenging but everyone showed great team spirit. Well done!
