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

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. #scienceatnishkam #determination #resilience #confidence #growthmindset.
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!

Transforming Education: Ethics Education for Learning to Live Together
Transforming Education: Ethics Education for Learning to Live Together Nishkam Schools were delighted to be used as an exemplar as a part of a global symposium 'Transforming Education: Ethics Education for Learning to Live Together’.
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!

Happy Gurpurab to all our Nishkam families celebrating this very special occasion. Today is the 552nd anniversary of the birth of the first Guru Ji, Guru Nanak Dev ji.
Our children participated in a whole school enrichment afternoon where classes listened and discussed the life of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
They participated in a number of different activities including reciting shabhads which they had been learning then shared together in our assemblies. Congratulations to our winners of the Gurpurab competition. We had many entries and it really was very difficult to choose the winners. It was lovely to see so many pupils sharing their amazing range of skills.
Thank you to you all for your participation. You will receive a certificate for your thought and effort with the entry. Well done.
It was a lovely day and the children learnt a lot about Guru Nanak Dev Ji and his teachings.
Thank you parents for your continued support.

Today our Early Years were lucky enough to go on their first ever school trip!
Everyone was super excited, the coach journey was a highlight.
We went to visit Sycamore Adventure in Dudley, a morning filled with outdoor fun & exploration. We played in the water, sand and mud. We were a little soggy and dirty but that as all part of the fun.
The Go-Karts and the campfire was a big hit, the children really enjoyed the popcorn made fresh on the fire.
A wonderful experience for all!

We look forward to welcoming new families to come and visit our school next week. Please share this with friends and family.
Today, children have been taking part in acts of remembrance across all faiths, cultures and backgrounds.
This morning we had a remembrance assembly that was delivered by Reverend Ray Gaston from The Church of St Chad and St Mark. The children learned about the meaning of armistice day and the different types of poppies that we all proudly wear.
As well as observing a 2-minute silence to reflect, pupils wrote their own prayers for peace and linked them to our golden threads of Love, Peace and Forgiveness that ask for a brighter future!

Happy Bandi Chhor/Diwali to all our families celebrating.
We too have been celebrating yesterday through engaging in a range of arts and crafts activities relating to this special religious event in the Sikh and Hindu faiths.
It celebrates overcoming good over evil and light over darkness. We explored the origins of the festivals and how and why they are significant. Be sure to ask your children all about it.
Hope you had a lovely evening celebrating with family and friends.
