Last night, our Year 7-9 students who took part in the "Wicked" showcase last week had the opportunity to see the hit musical at the Hippodrome. It was a fantastic performance which the students and staff thoroughly enjoyed, and our students were praised my by members of the public for their excellent conduct on the trip. As always, we were very proud to take them and represent our Academy.

✨WBCA came second in a Humanities Quiz hosted by Birmingham University. Technically, it went to a tie breaker and we were pipped at the post! Congratulations to all students involved, the University were very positive about student behaviour and participation. Additionally, each student received a free book on behalf of the National Literacy Trust. We were even gifted some spares for the library! A fantastic day for all involved.✨

💜📚On Friday afternoon, a group of girls from Y8-10 learned about careers in law and within the CPS from top female professionals. This event included the different educational routes available, an International Women’s Day quiz and a questions and answers session. 📚💜

💜On Friday, 7.1 wore their very own purple ribbons, with pride, to show their support for International Women's Day. It was lovely to see all students supporting each other for an important cause. They had purple hair bows, badges and accessories for bags all created by 7.1 themselves. They wore them all day and were very proud to explain what they were for in the canteen during lunchtime.💜

Been a busy day set building, but doing non exciting things ( just laser-cutting box structures for the cave). However, we did get chance to test our methods of constructing light weight barrels. This is an important prototype as we are hoping to make ‘rope wicker effect linen baskets’ for the market in the same way. Unfortunately they are too big to laser cut so it was back to the traditional methods. 10 weeks to go before or production of Aladdin hits the WBCA stage.

As part of the Journeys Theme places of worship visits, Year 7 went to Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Smethwick last Friday. We were welcomed by Balbir Kaur who explained all the facts about the gurdwara and Sikhism. Students learned lots of information and were fascinated by the beautiful atmosphere and building. Finally, Year 7 were invited to go to the langar hall and taste the lovely food. Many opted for 'seconds' as the food was just divine! Year 7 had a lovely time, and their only complaint was they wished they could have stayed for longer!

Dr Rezk from Aston University recently visited WBCA to showcase elements of mathematics within Physics to our year 11 students. 👨‍🏫🎓

It was an inspirational day as students explored maths outside the classroom, actively participating in experiments and thoroughly enjoying the experience. This also guided a number of our students to continue pursuing maths at colleges and sixth form. 🌟🚀

Today was our first ever Chess tournament between Thorns Collegiate Academy and West Bromwich Collegiate Academy. It was a great time, new friends made, many games played. The chess teams are just one of the many extra curricular clubs run outside of school hours with in our trust. So out of the many three made it to the top spots. Congratulations to 1st place Aaron (WBCA), 2nd place Oliver (WBCA) and 3rd place Oliver (TCA). A big thank you also for Ms Allen and Mr Shaw for organising the event and all at Thorns for their welcome and hospitality. We look forward to hosting the next round at WBCA. Well done to all the players who attended.

We had our first rehearsal this week for "Aladdin Jr", and wow how the students impressed us all. Here you can see the students being led through a vocal warm up before starting to learn the opening song, "Arabian Nights". Once they learnt the vocal parts, we moved onto choreographing and directing the cast through all the movement needed to bring the energy, vibrancy and the hustle-and-bustle of Agrabah. With our largest and most inclusive cast ever, we are so excited for you to see what the students are creating for our audiences in July.

🗺️📍🧭🤩On Tuesday last week, some of the Year 10 Geography students took part in their first fieldtrip. They visited the local area to investigate how regeneration has impacted upon West Bromwich. They were fantastic with the data collection and then successfully applied their newly developed skills when back in the classroom. Well Done 10D!🤩🧭📍🗺️

It has been a very busy week in the Performing Arts department. Year 7 and 9 received an assembly about how Drama links into various careers. Students heard about various teaching staff's experiences in Drama and how this has shaped their work and personal life, and how so many careers use the skills explored in Drama, including training in medicine, law and the technological industries. Careers including police officers, pilots, marketing and entrepreneurship, amongst others, can all be traced back to the skills we explore in our Drama lessons.

Wednesday saw the launch of our "Wicked" project, where selected students in year 7-9 will be performing a devised piece of work at the Hippodrome in March. This week, they had a workshop with a visiting practitioner from the theatre to explore possible ideas they could use for their piece. Students worked really hard and demonstrate excellent skill, understanding and work ethic all afternoon.

We also had our auditions for Aladdin Jr taking place after school yesterday. The response was fantastic and we saw over 60 students attending and giving fantastic efforts all afternoon.

Finally this morning, we were visited by Break Mission, an internationally renowned hip-hop and breakdance group who spoke to the Year 10 students and demonstrated their excellent skills as we are looking to find students who wish to take part and develop their skills in dance with the group. They even taught Mr Ward a couple of moves live in front of the year group!

It is fantastic to be able to offer various opportunities to our students which they will remember for a very long time and will shape their futures and themselves as individuals.

On Tuesday 23rd January, Year 7 visited Holy Trinity Church to learn more about Places of Worship. Year 7 have started the 'Journeys' theme which includes learning about the religious journeys (pilgrimages) that take place in different religions. We did our own 'journey' as we walked to Holy Trinity Church and battled the difficult weather conditions!

We were welcomed at the church by Reverend Neil Robbie and his team of volunteers. Students had an opportunity to ask questions, look around the church and were shown what happens in a typical Sunday Service.

Students were particularly impressed by the beautiful stained glass windows which showed images from the Bible, such as 'The Good Samaritan'.

This year WBCA Theatre group will be presenting Disney's Aladdin Jr! As auditions begin, we once again share with you the creative journey behind the scenes as our DT team 'lets the genie out of the lamp' on how it creates 'a whole new world'. There may not be any chokey's, castles, swamps or dragons (thankfully) this year, but there is an Aladdin's cave of flying carpets, market places and palaces. So join our camel train of creativity behind the scenes!
