As part of our Brilliant Birds topic year one enjoyed an exciting visit from the Falconry Centre. 

We got to meet many interesting birds including an owl and a kestrel.

We learnt so much and we had a fantastic time!

Year 2 are having a Geography day.

We have created maps to show the journey of water to the sea and then made edible coast models! It was great fun and we have learnt lots of new vocabulary.

Year One Brilliant Birds Topic Launch! 


Last week year one made an exciting start to their new Brilliant Birds topic with a visit from Mr Ebblewhite! Mr Ebblewhite is a keen bird watcher and has a camera in his garden to record all the different types of birds that visit and feed there.


He showed the children footage of many beautiful and interesting birds - including goldfinches and even a buzzard!


Mr Ebblewhite has let year one borrow his amazing camera and it has been set it up in the school grounds so the children can record and see the different birds that visit us at Outwoods. To encourage the birds (and to help look after them) year one also designed and made bird feeders which were hung around the school garden area.


Year one cannot wait to check the camera and learn more about the local birds and wildlife in our lovely school grounds!


A huge THANK YOU to Mr Ebblewhite for such a fantastic visit!


Year 2 completed a theatre workshop to further explore the story of 'The Lion. the Witch and the Wardrobe'.

It was great fun and the children all participated with enthusiasm! The visitor was impressed with how much they knew about the book and how well they could explain their understanding. Well done Year 2!

Beautiful blossom in Ms Maddocks outside area. 

The winning Christmas Card design!

Well done Ingrid. I bet King Charles was overjoyed when he opened the card from North Warwickshire!

Coronation Celebrations!

Rock Steady                  

The children were very excited today, when Ben came in to showcase the Rocksteady band workshops. There was lots of clapping and joining in - especially when our superstars joined the band!   Your child can sign up to band workshops on a Monday.

Check out the children rocking the drums, keyboard, electric guitar and vocals -

Freshly Squeezed

On Friday, the School Council worked hard raising money for Mrs Bird's London Marathon charity Rett UK.

They made and displayed posters, then sold their own home-made lemonade in school. It was very popular!

'It was actually really nice!' Hart

'It's a bit sour,' Tyler


From our non-uniform day and lemonade sale we are over the moon to confirm we raised a total of £425.99 for an amazing cause!

Thank you again for your support - we couldn't do it without you!

Revolution Topic

Year Four had a great time launching our Revolution topic about the Victorians. We found the strict classrooms intimidating (but fun) and really had to concentrate on our handwriting so we didn't make any mistakes. In the afternoon, we were lucky enough to see a steam train pass, before we became historians and found out about the Victorians by looking at a range of resources. We've had a great day!

'It was really funny when Mrs Bloomer was a strict teacher.' Thomas


'It was difficult to write with my right hand when I'm really left-handed.' Abigail

'The steam train was so loud! It went past really quickly.' Sofia

It's all GO at Gardening Club!

'Mad March Hair' in aid of The Little Princess Trust!

SUPER Science in Year One!

Today, we really enjoyed learning about our five senses with a variety of objects and foods. We explored sweet and savoury foods, different sounds and objects with varying textures.

We loved being senses scientists!

Year 5 'Easter' Orienteering!

With a chocolate treat for everyone who solved the clues!

Young Writers

Well Done to all of the children who entered the Young Writers Winter Wonderland competition in KS1, they have decided to publish all of the entries! What a fantastic result! 

Miss Ryan

Atherstone Library

Flat Caps have been for another visit to Atherstone library. We enjoyed taking part in a quiz, exploring and reading books and listening to stories. 

Dental Chat

On Wednesday, the children in year 4 were very luck to have a visit from one of our parents who is a dental nurse. We enjoyed discussing what we have learnt about teeth and being reminded of how and why we should look after our teeth.

Year One enjoyed an informative fire safety visit from the local firefighters from Atherstone fire station today.

Year 1 - Space Centre Trip March '23

Year One enjoyed an exciting and informative visit to the National Space Centre. It was a wonderful start to their new Space topic!

World Book Day 2023

Our Year 6 Girls Football Team ...

...took part in an indoor tournament today in Kingsbury. They played 3 games and came 2nd overall!!

We are so proud! They play again in 2 weeks time. 

'Year Two performing their Penguin Poems.'

Class Share!


...have had a lovely morning in the sun today. We wrapped up warm and used the orienteering course to practise our times tables. 

Year 4 - Flat Caps

For PE we did Orienteering. We had to use our mapwork skills to find points around the school grounds and answer times table themed questions. Our teamwork was great with 6 groups successfully finishing all 25 questions, getting them all correct - well done!

Key Stage 2 Christmas Performance (a little later than planned!)

Christmas Fun in Year 4!

Christmas Fayre - KS1 Choir Performance

The key stage one choir sang beautifully at the Christmas Fayre on Friday - we are all so proud of them for giving such a wonderful performance!

Baking Bread

Flat Caps created bread to please the Roman emperor. We used our maths skills to weigh and measure ingredients and then we learnt about kneading and proving. The bread we made was delicious!

Year One are Helping the Hedgehogs!


In year one we have been learning about woodland animals and their habitats this week. We found out that hedgehog numbers are declining because their habitats are being damaged or even destroyed.

So, we decided to help our hedgehogs! 

Today we designed and made hedgehog homes - thinking about all the features the homes would need to keep the hedgehogs safe, warm and camouflaged.

The children really enjoyed creating these super homes and they did a fantastic job - well done year one!

Flat Caps 

As part of reading our class book 'The Fatal Fire', we sat around our firepit to read the next part of the story. We put paper cubes at edge of the fire, imaging they were the houses in the story to see how the fire spread. It was fascinating to see how quickly the houses caught light. We wrote lots of phrases from our experience, such as 'lingering smoke', 'flames danced like ballerinas' and 'crackling like popcorn'.

Year one have enjoyed a super start to the new school year...

We have been exploring our school and writing information posters.

We have to learning about seasonal changes and looking for the signs of Autumn.

This week we’ve had an exciting delivery from the Jolly Postman! We can’t wait to find out more about him and his friends!😁

New School Year - 2022/23
