Coronation of King Charles III
Date: 8th May 2023 @ 3:08pm
King Charles III is passionate about our environment and conservation. At Warmingham CE Primary, we share his passion and to commemorate his Coronation we have been working on some special projects which will encourage more wildlife into our grounds.
Otters planted some flowers in old wellies.
Hedgehogs made wildflower seed bombs which they later used to create a wildflower area by the school’s front gate.
Squirrels planted some shrubs and bedding plants in the planters which we moved from the front of the school to the edge of the playground so the children can maintain them.
Badgers made some bird boxes for the woodland area. They then decorated them with paintings of wildflowers, bees, butterflies and ladybirds inspired by the invitation for the coronation which was created by Andrew Jamieson.

Squirrels and Badgers are thoroughly enjoying their swimming lessons over at Bunbury. Today, four of our none-swimmers swam their first width without their swimming noddles. The more able swimmers have been perfecting their swimming strokes and stamina whilst our confident swimmers have been working on their life saving skills.

Squirrels and Badgers Class have just spent an amazing three days at the CMC Adventure Centre in Pensarn Harbour. The children took part in a range of activities which developed their resilience and determination. As you’ll see from the video, the children thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
We would also like to thank the Up and Under Foundation for the financial support they have provided to some of our parents.

Hedgehogs’ Class have been enthused by our ‘wow’ starter to our new study theme. Mrs B found a message in bottle on a beach in Spain. But where did it come from? Who is Evan? Can we find him? The children are excited to learn about the seas and oceans of the world and hopefully rescue Evan.

Badgers Class trip to Chocolate Whirled

On Wednesday, Badgers class went to Southport to visit Chocolate Whirled. The children (and adults!) took part in the 'Bean to Bar' workshop where we learnt all about where cocoa beans come from and how they are made into chocolate. There was lots of chocolate tasting along the way too! Then, we had the opportunity to create our own chocolate bar.

Otters class have been progressing their fine motor skills as artists today. We looked at the self portraits we had drawn at the beginning of Autumn Term and discussed how we could improve on them to make this terms self portraits even better. We thought about including more detail such as eye lashes and eyebrows and the types of shapes our features needed to be alongside sizing and placement of our key facial features.
After we had finished, we put our first picture next to our new one and decided on how our added details had improved our pictures.
Otters Wow starter Spring Term
Date: 4th Jan 2023 @ 7:14pm
Otters have had a wonderful start back to school. They were all very excited to share their Christmas news, then we had our wonderful ’Wow starter’ from Zoo2U. We learnt all about African land snails from the jungle. Tenrecs from Madagascar who are interestingly related to elephants not hedgehogs as we had first thought. Then we met Boris, a bearded dragon from Australia whose beard turns black when he’s scared. We also saw Herbert a horse field tortoise from Russia who has notches on his shells called scoots and learnt that they live for 50-60 years. Lastly, we met a northern striped skunk from North America who was very excited to meet us on his first school outing.

Our Wow Starter for our Minibeasts Study Theme
We began our new study theme searching for minibeasts in our woodland. We found worms, spiders, a centipede and a woodlouse. But then came Dave...
Dave brought a whole host of minibeasts for a truly 'creepy crawly' show. We met Charlie the Hissing Cocroach; Millie, the Giant African Millipede; Rosie the Chile Rose Tarantula; Finando the Black Beauty Stick Insect and Pricilla the Flat Rock Scorpian. They were all very sociable. We even 'high fived' the tarantula and shock hands with the scorpian!
We later met some animals which like to eat the minibeasts, like Leonardo de Geko the Geko, Hooter the Barn Owl and Tina the Tenrec.
Finally we met some animals further up the food chain - some snakes.
We throroughly enjoyed our visitors today and are looking forward to learning lots more about these amazing creatures.

Our ‘Fantastic Finish’ to our Autumn Term Study Theme. inspired by the Wright Brothers, the Hedgehogs’ class designed and made their own aeroplanes. We thought carefully about the materials to use and the shape of the wings. We then raced them. Some flew high, some flew low and some flew far.

Anne Frank - A True Courageous Advocate
Date: 23rd Nov 2022 @ 10:14am
As theologists, Badgers’ Class (Year 5/6) have explored how Anne Frank’s faith helped her see the good in everything around her.
They started by learning about the basic history of the Holocaust before they learnt about the life of the courageous advocate Anne Frank. After ordering the key events in Anne’s life, they looked at how the Holocaust had an impact of her life.
Afterwards, they looked at some quotes from Anne Frank’s diary, and how her faith helped her to see the good in everything around her, despite what was happening to her and her family. They then thought carefully about which of our Christian values she was using to help her. A truly amazing courageous advocate – an inspiration to us all.

To conclude our healthy eating topic in science, Otters made their own fruit kebabs for snack this afternoon. Over the week they have been designing them with play dough, talking about what foods are healthy and how important it is to eat healthily.
