This week we were lucky enough to take part in a clay workshop with Maria Lawton-Spence. We had a vision for our school and then created a tile mosaic depicting it. Every member of our school community had a part in it. We can’t wait for the finished result to be mounted on the wall.
Art Workshop Day
On Thursday we spent the whole day creating pieces of art which will decorate the school hall. Everyone showed such great enthusiasm and we all had a great day.
Water saving assembly
This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from Richard who works for Severn Trent Water. He spoke to everyone in assembly about saving water at home
The parents, teachers and children were treated to a musical afternoon when all the children who had been having music lessons performed. It was the first time lots of them had played in front of an audience but they did very well.

Christmas Party Day
The Children had a great time at the Christmas party, there was music and dancing, food and games. We were even lucky enough to get a visit from Father Christmas, who managed to squeeze us into his busy schedule.
Celebration Assembly Dec 2017
The children showed off their achievements from outside of school at the celebration assembly. There were dancers, swimmers and musicians and even a birthday!
As part of a project to raise the profile of science in school, Blackshaw Moor First School held a Science day for all the children from Nursery to Year Four. We held our first ever science fair which was very successful. All the children decided on a project to work on at home with their parents and bought their work into school to share at the end of the day. We had a lizard with instructions on how to keep him safe and healthy and lots of information about his habitat. We had erupting volcanoes, eggs that slipped into bottles like magic, homemade dinosaur eggs and lava lamps. We had a robot with LED lights and scale models of the solar system to name just a few !
The day was full of activities aimed to encourage team work, creative thinking and problem solving whilst developing scientific skills and knowledge. Many of the children came to school in lab coats and safety goggles to really get into the spirit of things and Mrs Shilcock our school cook even prepared a science themed meal for lunchtime.
