  • Year 5 Girls Show Off Their Roar-some Football Skills!

    Published 26/05/22

    YR5 Girls were transported to the wonderful world of Disney, most notably Pride Rock, for some Lion King themed football coaching with the Aston Villa professional footballer Nat Haigh.
    Smith's Wood playing field was transformed into an African savannah where giraffes, elephants and even lions roamed free!
    Our very own Smith's Wood lionesses bravely attempted to escape an elephant graveyard, navigate a perilous jungle and outwit a dangerous clan of hyenas whilst protecting their own Zazu!
    An excellent array of skills were on display in earnest. Well done to the Year 5 girls for completing the numerous complex levels and showing an abundance of both determination and resilience.

  • Year 6 Kingsbury Water Park Trip

    Published 20/05/22

    On Friday 13th May - there was nothing unlucky in year 6, as we headed to Kingsbury Water Park. This was a reward trip for pupils who had completed the target amount of SATs Bootcamp sessions; many of whom had put in 8 extra hours across the previous two weeks!

    Pupils enjoyed a picnic lunch and an afternoon of being themselves playing on the play area and participating in a multitude of sports in the beautiful countryside setting. We are very proud of the extra effort shown by these pupils and staff!
