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

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.

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!

 

Year 6 Boys Winners! Football Success!

WINNERS! Our Year 6 boys football team were excellent role models in the Marches football tournament over in Shrewsbury on Monday. The tournament was made up of 6 teams and our team were absolutely fantastic! The boys started off strong, winning their first match 11-0. The 2nd match was a more difficult test and our defence  did a super job to stop us conceding any goals. With the majority of our efforts on target, we were sad to only be drawing 0-0 after some fantastic saves from their keeper. This still put us top of our group on goal difference!

In the first of the knock out rounds, we won 2-0. Our defenders again did a brilliant job defending our goal to continue our aim of not conceding for the tournament. Our final match saw us against a team who had already knocked another group out on penalties. Our boys had plenty of efforts on target and were unlucky not to find the net. After a tense few minutes, the final score, 0-0. Leading to the dreaded penalties… 3 of our bravest boys stepped up to the spot. Our keeper made an outstanding save to keep us in it, and 2 of our boys slotted their penalty in to the bottom left corner to seal the deal for us! A trophy brought home and a medal for all the boys! A fantastic day out and a well-deserved win!

Year 6 Boys Football Success

Our Year 6 boys took part in a friendly football match at home against Grange Park this week. This was the boys first match of the year and they were absolutely amazing! Miss Brown and Mr Saxton were filled with pride watching the boys play with determination and a fantastic attitude. The boys were great role models of our school values showing bravery, pride, respect and safety throughout the match. They also demonstrated excellent sportsmanship! The boys got the reward and success they deserved, and beat a competitive Grange Park side 4-1 in their first match. A fantastic display of football and team effort!

Y6 English – Horror- Murder Most Unlady like

Year 6 began their new writing unit this week- HORROR. The children have been reading Robin Stevens, ‘Murder Most Unlady Like,’ and put themselves in the shoes of the protagonist and narrator, Hazel Wong. Our children took a walk through Deepdean Boarding School for Girls in the 1930’s, and discovered the scene of a dead teacher, Miss Bell on the sports hall floor. The children were then set to the task of describing the crime scene. Super detective work! Now to narrow down the suspects in this murder mystery…
