My Job as an Engineer Webinar

KS2 joined in with a live lesson on Wednesday this week, exploring what it was like to be an engineer. Exposing children to ambitious careers is crucial, and we hope all our children grow up to be ambitious and aspirational. Highlighting careers in STEM subjects is a focus for all schools and we hope our children learnt some of the highlights of being an engineer during the webinar

Google Drawing Creations!

Year 5 are loving their Computing unit on Vector Graphics this term. We have been using Google Drawings to create pictures using smaller shapes. We have used tools such as copy, paste, resize, fill, line weight, alignment and zoom to make them as good as they can be! Check some of them out below:

Walsall Art Gallery Visit

A group of children have had a wonderful visit to the art gallery today. It has supported their engagement with the outside world and brought art to life in a very thought provoking way. Their progress in both knowledge and skills was directly related to their experiences in the workshop and art collections.

We were all in awe seeing artwork by famous artists such as Matisse, Van Gogh, Constable, Turner and Picasso.

Year 5’s Arthog Experience

In April, some of our Year 5 children had the amazing opportunity to spend a week at Arthog in Wales. They stayed for 4 nights and experienced a wealth of activities, including: gorge walking, night line, canoeing, orienteering, hiking and many, many more!

The children were perfectly behaved over the week, and many of the instructors praised them for their manners and general attitude! We are very proud of them all and are sure they were filled with memories that would last a lifetime!

Lights…Camera…Action!

We are 3 weeks into our Lego League Club and have created part of our stage for our performances! We have had children finding the pieces, building, supporting and reporting and the children are doing really well together as a team!

British Values Fortnight – Cllr Ollie Vickers visit.

On Monday 29th April 2024, Alexander Fleming School began their two-week look at British Values. We were lucky enough to welcome Labour Councillor for Donnington, Ollie Vickers, to speak to Key Stage Two about Democracy, Rule of Law and Individual Liberty.

The children relished the opportunity to speak to an active member of the Telford and Wrekin Council and strengthened their knowledge of key concepts of British Values and Politics.

Thank you Ollie!
