Can is start by saying thank you for all your hard work that you all you are doing for the children. A is enjoying her lessons much better in this lockdown and nice to hear their teachers voices. May I make a suggestion of a the resources/worksheets on classroom editable for the children to use and send back to be marked? It seems to be taking a such long time flicking in between documents and completing the work is taking more time than suggested on the timetable. I worry about engagement time if they feel they are getting ‘behind’. Thank you once again for the valuable resources and hard work staff are already putting in. 📚 ⭐️ 🖊
Is it just 6LR for walk tomorrow? School uniform, walking shoes/wellies/trainers??
Today is World Teachers’ Day. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the teachers and the whole staff team at Uplands for their incredible work during such a challenging year. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated team at Uplands to support our children’s education. Thank you 😊
How do we get today's letter if the child was not in today please?
Young In Wolverhampton Clubs are calling for young people to join us on our Journal Journey project. This new time that we are experiencing can effect us in intense and emotional ways that we have never felt before. At times like this, we could all do with some extra support and guidance. Art journaling can assist you in better understanding your emotions, de-stress and let go of intense feelings and anxieties, explore issues, un-clutter thoughts and capture wishes and dreams whilst being fun and enjoyable. All equipment will be provided, on call staff for support and guidance and workshops, via face book and ZOOM. If interested or for more information please call 07984102714
In awe of Mrs Webster-Smith and her staff, they are doing a fabulous job cherish all of them!
Just received text about return to school info from LA. Says on school website bottom right of homepage ... nothing there ?
Today is 'Thank a Teacher Day' so I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to thank all the Teachers, Teaching Assistance, Support Staff and of course the Leadership Team at Uplands for all their ongoing hard work and enthusiasm.

We know that all the staff strive to give the children the best school experience they can and that the past few months have made this a particular challenge. Teaching and working from home, going in to school when needed and coping with changes in family life. This can't have been easy. The next few weeks offer a further challenge to the school. We are very fortunate to have such willing and dedicated staff at Uplands.
On behalf of the Board of Governors thank you all.

We will be bringing the sunflower seedlings in this morning around 8:30am. Elsa would love to say hi if possible! X
Just wondering if the school would like some sunflower seedlings to grow... we have grown a few too many (quite a few) and would love to donate a few if you could use them?
Hi. I can't find the login details for Twinkl. Can you point me in the right direction. Thanks
Published today a list of educational resources for schools and parents to help children learn at home.

At Uplands we want all of our children to be happy, feel safe and to learn; to be the best that they

Some pond dipping after school found this creature - any ideas anyone? We have also spotted that the white newt is back!


Well done to all the Year 4 children who took part in their Level 1 Bike Ability Course over the past two days. Some lovely compliments from the instructors who are looking forward to coming back to Uplands for Level 2!


This morning, pupils in Year 5 enjoyed a visit from Jo, who is part of the team at St Philip's Church. She delivered a session from 'Walk Through the Bible Mini', a free educational programme. These lessons help support the R. E. curriculum by covering key stories of the Old Testament, explaining how they all fit together.
Teaching the storyline of the Old Testament promotes understanding of both the Jewish and Christian faiths, explaining key festivals and celebrations. It also delivers parts of the PSHE curriculum, through issues raised in the stories (e.g. Joseph - forgiveness; Ruth - loyalty and friendship), as well as exploring the geography and history of the Bible. It also links in very well with our Summer RE topic of 'Temptation.'
Jo will teach five interactive lessons, alongside Mrs Lane in Year 5's usual RE lessons. The children will be taught a set of hand signs that help them to remember the storyline. To support the lessons there is a 36-page workbook for each child. The feedback from pupils today was very positive, as they explored key figures and stories in Genesis, with drama, games and story-telling.

Year 3 have had a great week creating a variety of different pieces of art work using various mediums and techniques. Our Arts Week theme this year is 100 years of Disney: Finding Nemo.
All of our work was inspired by this Disney classic.


Over the summer holidays we are having the whole of our playground area re-surfaced and the slabbed patio areas removed. In addition we will be re-marking the playground with games/activities chosen by the children.


Uplands is going to be further enhancing our PSHE curriculum with these resources-thank you

The council has commissioned a suite of resources offered free to local schools to support them to deliver personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) to their pupils.

Representatives from around 50 primary and secondary schools across Wolverhampton attended a special launch event at Fordhouses Cricket Club last week to find out more about the resources, which have been compiled by the council's Public Health team.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the council's Cabinet Member for Adults and Wellbeing, said: "PSHE is a really important part of the school curriculum, helping children and young people stay healthy, safe and prepared for life and work in modern Britain. It also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and we are delighted to be able to provide these resources to our city's schools for free so they can deliver the highest level of personal, social, health and economic education to their pupils."

Today Year 6 welcomed back Steve "graffoflarge" Edwards to add to our graffiti project.

Each child in the year group had the opportunity to add their own touch to the piece using spray paints to add words and patterns to reflect the theme of 'Respect' along the wall leading to our garden.

Their work looks amazing and has definitely added a well-needed splash of colour!

The children in Year 4 were pleased to welcome Freshwater Theatre Company to school today. They took part in storytelling and acting. We have some budding actors in year 4, who were very brave and played key roles speaking in French as they were acting. The children (and staff) enjoyed hearing familiar stories in French with comedy included.


Today is the start of Mental Health awareness week. Our new Trick box team members will be visiting classes today to promote talking about feelings. From after half term the Trick Box team will be on duty at lunchtimes to support any pupils who need help with emotions.
