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!

During this period of time in December, Sikhs across the World remember the 4 sons of the 10th Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, are known as ‘Chaar Sahibzaade’ – Ajit Singh Ji, Jujhar Singh Ji, Zorawar Singh Ji and Fateh Singh Ji. The 4 sons upheld righteousness and sacrificed their lives in 1704 and it is still remembered as one of the greatest sacrifices made. As part of our ‘Prayers for Peace’ homework, please take some time to contemplate today.

25/12/2022

Merry Christmas to all pupils, parents and staff celebrating today. Today is a reminder of little things that bring others happiness. For Christians, it is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

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.

Our Early Years were lucky enough to visit Santa at Dudley Zoo. Children demonstrated the virtue of respect whilst representing Nishkam School, their behaviour was impeccable!

The children saw some wonderful Zoo animals and Santa’s reindeer too! They walked so far, their little legs were tired but it was worth it!

For Remembrance Day we had Reverend Ray Gaston lead assemblies for Key Stage One and Two. They learnt why we celebrate Remembrance Day, the meaning of the different poppies and it opened a discussion about Peace vs Conflict which is one of our Golden Threads. In the afternoon, all year groups participated in an Art Enrichment. Reception, Keys Stage One and Lower Key Stage Two produced different pieces of work based on the symbol of remembrance - the Poppy. Years 5 and 6 created some beautiful pastel silhouette pictures of soldiers.

“We will remember them.”

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!

Year 3 had a fantastic afternoon at Sycamore Adventure in Dudley. They began the afternoon by taking part in a scavenger hunt where they had to search for facts related to the Stone Age. They located the timeline, how people in the Stone Age used to live and what they used to eat. The also looked at the similarities and differences between then and now. They then had a chance to discuss all the interesting facts they found to consolidate their understanding. After, they got to take part in a campfire and even got to toast their own marshmallows. It was a wonderful learning experience for all!

On Friday, we welcomed BBC West Midlands Radio to our special assemblies celebrating the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Children in Key Stages 1 and 2 discussed her life and how her legacy links closely to our Golden Threads and Nishkam Virtues. In the afternoon, all classes took part in an Art Enrichment. Each class looked at a different period of her life and explored this through the virtues. Each child created a piece of artwork in the style of a famous artist and had to make the Queen the key focus. The children thoroughly enjoyed this and it was wonderful to hear the discussions that came from this cross-curricular enrichment afternoon.

Monday 19th September will be a Bank Holiday to mark Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral. Schools will be closed to all staff and pupils.

Her Majesty the Queen to many, was a role model of virtues during her 70-year reign. We give gratitude in particular to her service and work on forgiveness and reconciliation and may we all reflect on her legacy.

“It is in forgiveness that we feel the power of God’s love.”

Welcome back to all our new pupils, families and staff. It is our ambition to provide a ‘faith-inspired, virtues-led’ experience to prepare our pupils to become the compassionate leaders of tomorrow and, at the same time, achieve academic excellence. We believe in bringing together pupils, parents, teachers and the wider community to build an environment to enable pupils to flourish, as well as recognise and realise their full potential.

The ‘Nishkam’ ethos is to create a ‘selfless’ mind-set, to go beyond ourselves to serve others. We look forward to you joining us on this special journey.

Year 3 had a brilliant day at Cadbury World on Thursday. We began the day exploring the African adventure play area and 4D cinema before making our way to our very own Maya talk. We learnt all about the Mayan people’s involvement in the early history of cocoa in c. AD 900. Some of us even got the chance to dress as a Mayan! After, we began our Cadbury World tour where we got to travel back in time and walk through the tropical rainforest of the Maya. We then discovered how chocolate is manufactured and got to have a go at writing our name with chocolate. We even had a go at tempering chocolate too! It was a fun day of learning for us in Year 3

At Nishkam we learn from faith, last week pupils across the school visited different places of worship to celebrate Interfaith. Before going for a tour pupils learnt about a place of worship within their classes through a range of activities including discussion, videos and informational presentations.

Pupils were then able to relate to the place of worship that they visited and were able to see and discuss the features. We are grateful to the different faith communities for welcoming us and hosting informative sessions.

Thank you so much to all Year 3 parents who came to support the children with their Smoothie enterprise! The children have had a fantastic day learning all about what goes into designing, creating, budgeting, advertising AND selling a product. They had brilliant advertising ideas and created a superb selling environment for us to make lots of money for charity.

Year 3 made a whopping £88 for charity in the end, we are so proud of them! Thank you all for your generous donations.
