On Monday 12th March, we welcomed pupils from Hurst Green, Caslon and Withymoor Primary Schools to compete at the Dudley RE Debates. Our Year 6 debating team were proposing the motion ‘This house believes that honesty is the best policy’. They put forward some extremely good arguments against the opposition (Hurst Green). The rest of Year 6 were a fantastic audience and made lots of valuable contributions to the discussions after each debate. Well done everyone!

Fish and Chip Reward

Well done to Barnaby, Matthew and George who are our latest Pirate Award 16 (maths) prize winners. They enjoyed fish and chips provided by Wollaston Fish Bar, who generously sponsor this award. The boys even let Mrs Sixsmith eat a chip or two!

Thank you so much to Mr and Mrs Partali, from Wollaston Fish Bar, for continuing to support this prize at St James’s.

Class 1B go to Forest School

Forest School year 1

On Thursday 1st March class 1B went down to Forest School.  It was very windy and a little cold but we wrapped up warmly with lots of layers.  We enjoyed exploring in the snow. We then went inside and sat around a ‘fire’ where we had some hot chocolate and shared a story.
