Thank you so much for for such generous donations for The Black Country Foodbank. We have never had so many items brought in- what a fantastic contribution to our local community. We really do appreciate your support.
We have been listening to a great song called Baba Yetu by Alex Boye in assemblies. It is actually The Lord’s Prayer in Swahili. Mrs Sixsmith set a challenge for children to find out about Swahili in their own time. well done to Georgia in Year 6 who created this poster at home.
We were lucky to win books as prizes from Peters Books in Birmingham. All the books are now available for children to borrow from our school library.
A couple of weeks ago, 10 children from Year 5 represented St James’s at Stourport Bellboating Regatta. They had a wonderful day in the sunshine and behaved outstandingly. We are really proud of you! Well done!
Emma (Year 2) competed at Hanbury Countryside Show on Saturday and won the Under 12’s Young Handler Championship. She has been taking part in competitions since she was 3, but hasn’t competed for the last two years, so it was great that she got back in the show ring. Emma shows pigs, and usually shows a Berkshire pig called Louise who she has got used to over the years and feels confident around. Unfortunately Louise went a bit crazy (heat and pregnant – you know how it is ….), so Emma couldn’t take her in the show ring. One of the other competitions kindly lent her a Welsh pig called Julia, and she did a wonderful job with her.
