End of term message to all of the Catshill First School and Nursery community

Have a wonderful, safe summer holidays. We will see you in September!


A message to the whole Catshill First School & Nursery community


Art and Science in one fascinating investigation! Try Mrs Cross’ Rainbow Activity at home and send us a picture!

Time for a game? Mrs Mercer has one for you. Grab a dice if you have one and something to write your scores on. You will also need a brilliant memory!

The game is called BrainBox. You have to look at the picture for 10 seconds (Mrs Mercer recommends pausing the video if you need a little longer!), then roll the dice and answer the question with that number. It could be about the animals in the picture, the colour of someone’s shoes or the text at the bottom. Play alone or get the whole family involved!

It’s not just staff who want to share their poems. Charlie in 3BS has written one too:

Lockdown – by Charlie (and mum)

The world went into lockdown
That really made me frown
No more school or seeing friends
When will this all end?

The world went into lockdown
More time with Mum and Dad
Fun playing computer games and baking
Even long walks with the dog

The world went into lockdown
Still no end in sight
Will try my hardest not to moan
And cherish this extra time a home.

The staff at Catshill First School and Nursery are missing reading to you so they are doing it from their own homes!
