Year 2 were super excited this week when they visited the Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
Year 2 have started a new text in English called 'Claude in the City by Alex T Smith. Claude visits the city and explores an Art Gallery so we too decided to explore what an Art Gallery is and what is inside.

We saw some amazing Art exhibitions and discussed the amazing pieces we saw.

As Vaisakhi has fallen in the holidays this year, Nishkam participated in a Vaisakhi Enrichment on Wednesday 6th April.

Vaisakhi marks a day to celebrate 1699-the year when Khalsa was formed following the first Amrit Sanchar (baptism).

Through a range of events and activities pupils explored and learnt all about the importance of Vaisakhi. Pupils came to school in their cultural dress for the day.

Some of the activities included-
* Whole school visit to the Gurudwara including a talk about the events in history commemorating Vaisakhi. We sang our shabads (hymns) that we had been learning in school and sat together to share in the Langar (free kitchen open to all in the Gurudwara).
*We watched a Gatka display - Gatka is a form of martial arts associated primarily with the Sikhs of Punjab.
*We learnt in detail all about Vaisakhi and participated in a range of arts and crafts activities.
*We had a special Vaisakhi day lunch which we shared together.

It was a very enjoyable day for all pupils, staff and parents, whilst also very informative.

Thank you to all staff and parents for their continued support and co-operation.

Wishing all our Sikh families a very happy Vaisakhi.

EYFS children had a super time on their trip to Wonderland in Telford. The children enjoyed exploring the woodland trail which took them into houses of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and many other favourite charters.

The fun fair was a huge success 🎠
The beginning of April marks the start of Ramadan for our Muslim families at Nishkam. Samama Suleman from the local Tayabba Mosque visited our pupils to share what Ramadan is and how it is observed.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community.

We wish our Muslim families
Ramadan Mubarak.

We were over the moon with the creativity & enthusiasm from our EYFS pupils & parents.
The ‘Happily Ever After’ showcase was incredible. We shared projects created at home to celebrate our topic on traditional tales, such as Goldilocks, The Three Little Pigs & Jack & the Beanstalk 🌟
A huge thank you to everyone involved!
Our Year 6 pupils received a fantastic and informative session from Mohammed's mum (Dr Arshad) who is general practitioner (GP). They thoroughly enjoyed the question-and-answer session where they were able to ask questions linked to their learning about the respiratory system and the impact of smoking and alcohol has on the body. This linked with their science topic, animals including humans. Some very interesting questions were asked, not only about the topic but also about the profession. It was a powerful way of deepening the pupils’ understanding of their learning and how they themselves can aspire to enter the medical profession. .
Some of our Year 5 girls travelled to Wolverhampton Girls High School to compete in a regional Mathematics competition. The team had to complete a range of challenges that tested their problem solving and arithmetic skills. They showed a bundle of resilience and determination and came away with some valuable skills. Well done Team Year 5!
Thank you to all our pupils, staff, parents and the wider community for donating £1000 to the The Haven Wolverhampton

On 14th March 2022, pupils and staff from Nishkam Primary School Birmingham were delighted to be amongst a handful of schools to be invited to the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey. Prince Charles, and Prince William as well as the Prime Minister Boris Johnson were all present to bear witness in a celebration of a faith ceremony representative of the commonwealth.
The annual event was held to celebrate the Commonwealth of Nations and to provide an opportunity to highlight the voluntary association of 54 countries and their commitment to promoting democracy, human rights, the rule of law and equality.
Staff and pupils felt a sense of unity, and a reminder of the responsibility within this global family to do good and serve all of humanity.

Today, children from Years 5 and 6 have travelled to the Wolves Indoor Dome to take part in the Premier League Primary Stars Boys Football Tournament.

The children have been training hard for a couple of weeks and have been very excited to take part. They played in matches against twelve other schools from across Wolverhampton and showed determination, resilience and commitment to work as a team.

This is the first time that they have played together as a team, and we look forward to many more matches in the future. Well done boys!

Today we celebrated World Book Day with the children. The day is a true reflection of the importance of reading and the love for stories. Our children enjoyed taking part in a range of World Book Day activities. Our Year 5's even had a session reading to our Reception children. Thank you to our parents and guardians for preparing some of the fantastic vocabulary outfits!

The Nishkam Passport virtues are an extremely precious gift expressed through our faith traditions. Understanding and learning to practise these virtues provides us with a toolkit for navigating through life. There will be inevitable mistakes we make along the way. However, these become golden opportunities to learn lessons from and remember to forgive ourselves as well as all those we have felt might have wronged us – just as God forgives us!

Year 3 had a fantastic trip to the Exotic Zoo. They began the day by taking part in an educational lesson where they got to see a variety of exotic animals. They got to see a Madagascan millipede and cockroach, a skunk, a python snake and an armadillo. They were then able to visit the different areas of the zoo. They visited the rainforest, the nocturnal area and the farmyard. They even got to feed rabbits! It was a fantastic learning experience and enabled children to put their science knowledge into action.

The West Midlands Fire Service visited year 4 today.

The children were engrossed in learning about fire safety. They learned about the causes of fire, how to prevent fires, dangers of hoax calls and how to keep themselves safe.

Year 4 were very lucky, they not only learned about the tools and equipment that was stored in the fire truck but we also got to sit in the fire truck and try out the water hose.

The pictures perfectly sum up how engaged Year 4 were and how much fun they all had. 🚒🔥👨‍🚒

Our Nishkam pupils, staff and parents celebrated Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Gurpurab today. All pupils dressed in their cultural or smart clothes, visited the Gurudwara to pray and share the shabads that they had practised, with parents and the congregation. They all sat together to share in the langar before returning to school to continue their Enrichment day. Each class learnt about Guru Nanak Dev Ji's life then continued with a arts and crafts activity. We hosted Sacred Heart Primary School from Birmingham, who also learnt about Gurpurb.

Such a wonderful day. Thank you to all parents and staff for their support and co-operation.

Year 6 have had a fantastic trip to Wolverhampton Molineux today after being invited as part of Literacy week. During their visit, they got to have a tour of the stadium where they were lucky enough to sit in the box and experience the view from where the chairman would sit. They also had the opportunity to go into the Wolves dressing room (and even saw the players' shirts hanging up ready for Saturday's match!) Another aspect of the trip was a workshop with the award-winning author Peter Kalu, who read his new book to them, with the children role playing as he read. They were even lucky enough to each have a copy of his new book. Finally, the children had an insight into the role of a Sports journalist and discovered the skills and attributes needed to have a career in Sports.

It was an extremely insightful and fun experience!

Happy Bandi Chorr and Diwali to all our families celebrating today.
Before we broke up for the holidays our Nishkam pupils also celebrated and learnt all about this religious event in the Sikh and Hindu faiths through engaging in a range of arts and crafts activities. It is a celebration of good overcoming evil and light over darkness. We explored the origins of the festivals and how and why they are significant. Every child took home a decorated diva lamp so be sure to light it tonight.

Have a lovely time celebrating together.

Year 6 have had a fantastic day at Cannock Chase Museum today where they have experienced all things World War 2. Their activities included: role play to delve into how children felt at different points of their evacuation journey, a visit to a 1940's living room to see what life was like for families during the war, a workshop that focused on artifacts from the war and they even got to experience what would happen during an air raid (including wearing a gas mask and rushing to find cover)!

The leaders at Cannock Chase were extremely impressed with the children's knowledge of World War 2 and complimented the children's curiosity.

Well done Year 6!
