The Year 5 'Big Question' debate
Today, Thursday 23rd October 2014, Year 5 held their learning outcome debate all about deforestation...is it a good thing or not? Parents were invited to see this fantastic event take place. The children used all the knowledge that they had learned this half term around their big question 'Why is Brazil in the news again?'. It was a brilliant afternoon and the amount of knowledge that they children shared was unbelievable!
New books in each Year group
On Friday 17th october 2014, 14 children were selected to go to H & H Spalding Books in Barton to help choose some new books for their year group. We have kindly been given money from the School Association to purchase new books and shelving. It was a real treat for all the children who went, as they could choose 100 new books for their year group to read and enjoy. We can't wait to have the books and shelving in school after half term.
ALL THE CHILDREN AT CHRIST CHURCH WOULD LIKE TO SAY A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO SCHOOL ASSOCIATION FOR GIVING US MONEY TO DO THIS.
Rugeley Power Station visit Christ Church
On Wednesday 8th October, Rugeley Power Station visited the children in Year 4. During the morning, the children learned about how to reduce energy
consumption and all about alternative sources. The children also created a range of circuits and carried out a variety of investigations. All the children had a brilliant time and were 'buzzing' about their learning.
On Saturday 27th September, children from Year 5 and 6 performed in an event at the Cathedral called Prom Praise. It was an amazing experience for the children, who got to sing on the stage with a live orchestra. A big thank you to all the children, staff and parents involved, for supporting the event.

Talented artists at Christ Church
Fifteen of our talented artists, from Year 4 and 5, have been to the art department at The Friary to create 3 canvases: The rainbow fish, The Gruffalo and our take on a Lichenstien. These will be displayed around our school in September. The children were taught how to work with acrylic paint and how to successfully produce different tones and textures. Keep at look out for them in school, when they are displayed!
