This week Year 3 had their first school trip of the year, to Lapworth Museum! It was so exciting to see all the amazing artefacts at the museum that related to our geography and science topics. We got to participate in lots of fun activities too such as a volcano workshop and an earthquake experience, we even saw an Allosaurus named Rory!
Year 1 have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. We made replica houses and set them alight. We spoke about how the fire spread and linked it to our learning about how the fire spread quickly and why the people used fire hooks to pull down the houses to help stop the fire.
Happy 2sDay!
This week, year four launched their new geography topic Misty Mountain Winding River! We spent the day taking part in activities linked to our new topic which we were all VERY excited about. We walked into our raindrop covered floor and dived into creating a glossary for our new topic. After this, we created mountains using paper mache. We also took part in drawing, in art, and created landscape sketches using the effect of "perspective" and the children produced some beautiful work. Well done year four, I cannot wait for you to start learning about the wonderful mountains and rivers of the world! ⛰🏔🗻🌄💧💦☔️
Today was Year 6's launch day into their new learning adventure topic- Frozen Kingdom. Throughout the day, the children completed a range of exciting challenges linked to their pre-existing knowledge of the polar regions, which required them to use key skills such as teamwork, leadership and creativity. Some of the challenges they took on included packing a survival kit for an Antarctic expedition; building a base camp; researching and presenting information about Antarctic wildlife; investigating how blubber works in a practical science experiment; building marshmallow igloos and creating oil pastel landscapes of the Northern lights. We really have had a brilliant day all round and cannot wait to start our new adventure!
Happy New Year from Year 5! When we came back to school, we designed and created rockets linking to our space topic. We brainstormed; looked at ideas; created a design criteria and designed our rocket. We finally created our rockets using bottles and cardboard along with other materials! What a blast!!!! Super job Year 5.
Today Year 1 held a Royal Tea Party to launch our new topic 'Bright Lights, Big City'. We dressed in our best clothes, used our good manners, bowed/ curtsied to the Queen, ate some yummy food and drank 'Royal punch'. We finished with some dancing. We had a lovely time!
Year 2 have had an exciting afternoon creating 'shoe-box habitats' during their science lesson. They have been learning about the climate and environment of different global habitats, and the different living things that call it home!
On Friday, children from Years 1 to 6 enjoyed a trip to the Grand Theatre to watch Cinderella- the pantomime! The children had a brilliant time and it was amazing to watch them buzz with excitement when the curtains first opened! Throughout the pantomime, the children chanted, sung and danced along with the actors on stage with, beaming smiles on their faces. What a brilliant end to our first week back at school!
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone! 🎄
Today, we celebrated the excellent behavior across the school by inviting pupils, with the highest amount of dojo's, from each class to attend a dojo party. It was fantastic to see the children with gleaming smiles on their faces as they enjoyed decorating gingerbread men; drinking luxurious hot chocolates and playing games and dancing with their friends. We are very proud of all the children for demonstrating such positive behaviors consistently this term- what fantastic role models they are!
Over the last couple of weeks, Year 2 have been working on a project called 'Let's Explore the World' where they have been learning about continents, oceans and climate zones.

We have also studied the United Kingdom closely, to find out about the features and characteristics of the four countries in the UK!

We have used atlases, maps with keys and compass directions to become super geographers!

In Science club this afternoon, children had fun making their own lava lamp. We used vegetable oil, water, food colouring and Alka Selzter, to make our food colouring fizz and dance. We really enjoyed watching these ingredients react together!

We then went outside to look at our shadows. We predicted what our shadows will look like at different times during the day tomorrow. We predict that the shadows will have moved as the sun will have moved.

Residential 2023… completed! ✅

What an unbelievable week we’ve had. Year 6 have had so many amazing experiences, from canoeing and swimming in a lake, to abseiling and zip lining. They’ve also learned so many valuable skills, like the importance of team work and communication. We’ve laughed ‘til we cried this week and have made so many amazing memories to bring home with us that our children will hopefully cherish forever.

Miss Walters and Mrs Allen are so proud of each and every one of our children, they have been an absolute pleasure to spend the week with and even we don’t want to come home!

Thank you Year 6! 🎉☀️🛶💕

What a successful event we had earlier this week, with some of our parents, celebrating and discussing all of the wonderful opportunities for our SEND children at Bushbury! We enjoyed plenty of tea, coffee and goodies and had some great discussions amongst parents, staff and health care workers. We were proud to introduce everyone to our incredible Sensory Village and the kind comments we received from our parents were much appreciated. Thank you to Mrs Mukanga, Miss Turner, Miss Smith and the entire Bushbury Team for always going above and beyond for our children. Our next SEND coffee morning is on Monday, 10th July and we look forward to welcoming you here.

We spent the afternoon at our very own "Bushbury Lane Beach!" We had so much fun rock-pooling to find fish, building sandcastles and enjoying ice-cream! 🍦

We even rode our own donkeys and got crafty making crabs and jellyfish!

We can't wait to learn more exciting things about the beach! 😎☀️

Today, Year 4 had an exciting day, taking part in a historical workshop all about Ancient Egypt!

We have been learning about the ancient civilisation in our history lessons and were lucky enough to experience handling real-life artefacts, watching a mummification and getting the opportunity to expand our knowledge!

We were immersed in the excitement of Ancient Egypt right from the beginning of our day, and our history topic 'Ancient Civilisations' has truly been brought to life!

On Thursday, children in Reception got to go on their very first school trip to Dudley Zoo!
Our recent topic has been "Animal Safari" so it was very exciting to see lots of different animals we have been learning about such as flamingos, tigers, camels and monkeys!
We also got up close and personal with some minibeasts! We met a stick insect and a hissing cockroach and the skin of a spider who could grow up to 30cm!
We had so much fun exploring the zoo! 🐯🦁🐒🐧

Year 1 welcomed a West Midland Police officer into their classroom this morning. She talked to them about 'stranger danger'. She discussed who are strangers, what to do if a stranger approaches you and who are safe strangers if you get lost and can't find your adult. Year 1 are much better informed now and know how to keep themselves safe!

This afternoon in Science club, our pupils are conducting ‘The mouldy bread’ investigation. Within this, they are learning how quickly germs spread and how quickly bacteria can grow!


Book Club is proving to be a huge success with our KS2 children. We have just started the book ‘Can you see me?’ This book was carefully chosen to develop our pupils’ understanding of Autism as well as exploring what the transition from Primary to Secondary school might look like. Today the children enjoyed reading Chapter 5 together and filling out their blogs!


Yesterday was a Saturday well spent, working on our Sensory Village. We are one step closer to introducing ‘The Woodland Retreat’ and ‘The Snug’ to our wonderful children! So much thought, love and care goes into every space at Bushbury and we can’t wait to see the look on the children’s faces when these rooms are revealed ✨💜

Year 6 children had the opportunity to try on WWI uniforms, handle artifacts, take part in battlefield first-aid training and were even transported into the trenches using VR headsets.

In RE, Year 2 have been learning about the Hindu festival of Navratri, which celebrates the story of Goddess Durga defeating evil. Yesterday, the children found out that during the festival, Hindu’s wear special clothes and some women wear saris. We talked about the special clothes that we own and where we might wear them and then the children were given an exciting task to complete in teams! As part of this task, they were provided with a range of different material and were asked to express themselves and make their own special outfits!


This week, the school has been buzzing with excitement and anticipation as we have all awaited the announcement of our new School Captain representatives. All of our Year 6 children, who wrote and delivered speeches to the rest of the school did a tremendous job! The speeches were inspiring, personal and spoken from the heart and as teachers, we were incredibly proud of their courage! After everyone’s votes were counted, all of our children gathered in assembly this afternoon and the Captains were announced! From all of the staff and children at Bushbury Lane Academy, we would like to congratulate these children in their new well deserved roles! We know that they are going to make superb School Captains and continue being excellent role models for the rest of the children in our school. We are delighted to introduce you to our new School Captains…


These children have blown us away this week with their positive attitudes and dedication to their learning. We are immensely proud of them and their achievements. A huge well done to our stars of the week- keep shining!


We are deeply saddened at the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, who showed true dedication in her commitment to leading our country and The Commonwealth. In recent days, we have all taken a moment to reflect on her life and the impact she has had on our nation, as well as sharing our own personal memories of her in class assemblies. We join the Royal Family and the nation in grieving our wonderful Queen. Thank you for your service Your Majesty. Rest peacefully.

Wolverhampton school develops 'role play village' to boost pupils' communication skills 08/07/2022

This week saw the grand opening of 'Bushbury Lane Avenue' our Early Years outdoor area, which is home to a role play village! On Monday, we were thrilled to be visited by a range of key workers such as police officers, firemen and women as well as nurses and doctors, who all encouraged our children to get into character. Furthermore, we were visited by the Express and star news, who were blown away with how engaged our pupils were with the new addition to their outdoor area.

Year 4 had lots of fun when visiting Cadbury World, on their first school trip in a long time!
As we have read Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, we thought it would only be right to visit a chocolate factory of our own!
During the visit, we learnt about the history of chocolate, the history of Cadbury and Bournville and got to test and try the famous chocolate for ourselves! We had a VERY scrumptious day!

Last week, Year 2 had the most amazing school trip to Warwick Castle! We climbed the towers and ramparts, saw the original fortress built by William the Conqueror, watched an amazing bird of prey show and said hello to famous faces such as Elizabeth I, Henry VIII and William Shakespeare. It was a fantastic day, and it was brilliant to see our history topic, Magnificent Monarchs, come to life!

Wow! What an amazing day we have had celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee at Bushbury Lane Academy. The children enjoyed a fantastic street party lunch and were visited by a Deputy Lieutenant, whose job it is to represent the Queen. They have had lots of fun dancing with their friends; creating Jubilee inspired art work and singing special songs. We hope that this is a day that they will always remember!


Our Year 6's have truly blown us away this week and we couldn't be prouder of them! They have shown such an amazing attitude towards completing their SATs and each one of them has given their all, we couldn't ask for anything more. We count our lucky stars each day that we are fortunate enough to be their teachers! Thank you parents for all of your support.
