The PMLD department have been celebrating all the hard work we did last term by holding our own Australia Day. Students from primary, secondary and the college got together to celebrate our success
Students took part in a number of different activities including sensory activities, messy play and outdoor activities. They also had the opportunity to create their own Australian art work such as boomerangs and Australian flags.
In the afternoon we were invited to an Australian BBQ where 5.4 had cooked some delicious BBQ food for us to enjoy. They worked really hard to make sure that the food was prepared in time for the party. Everyone had a wonderful day and thank you for all your hard work!
Michaela Hawthorn – Community Champion at Asda Queslett in Great Barr enrolled Wilson Stuart onto the Green Token Scheme. Thanks to the generosity of Asda and their Customers the scheme raised £500 pounds for Wilson Stuart School and will be used to help fund rewarding residential experiences for our students. Students and Staff at Wilson Stuart School appreciate the support as it will enable them to access experiences and opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
The whole school celebrated the Royal Wedding with everyone dressing up in red, white and blue. We all joined in a street party with British themed food boxes. We learnt about the Royal Family as part of our lessons on British Values. We had a fun time at the disco in the afternoon. We all had a fantastic celebration. Congratulations to the happy couple.
On Wednesday 2nd May the 6th Form showed the premiere of their version of The Wizard of Oz!
The film was a real triumph with the audience of students, staff and parents. Our 6th Form students performed with such maturity and confidence and showed just what good actors they truly are.
Staff played a vital part too – with creating costumes, providing props and handling our temperamental toy dog as “Toto”!!!
A very special mention needs to go to the film’s director, Sian Kennedy, whose vision, skill and hard work enabled the film itself to be so professional and our young actors so inspiring.
Now, what shall we do next year????
DVD Copies are available for £5
On 1st May 2018, the Primary and Secondary classes enjoyed a Science/Critical Thinking Day which involved a range of science themed activities and tested student’s critical thinking skills! We had a very special visit from the Animal Man, who allowed students to touch the animals and even place a snake around our neck! Students also enjoyed a treasure hunt activity, making animal habitats, identifying animal sounds and footprints, and exploring sampling techniques. The animal habitats that we created are now proudly displayed in our reception area – come and have a look!
On Thursday 26th April, 3.1 walked up to Aldi and purchased some ingredients they needed to cook vegetable pilau and tadka daal. The following Monday 30th April the pupils cooked using their ingredients. They weighed onions, potatoes and rice using the balance scales and the analogue scales; they also measured the correct amount of water needed for the rice. Fantastic team work was carried out through washing drying and organising the ingredients. 3.1 worked very hard and enjoyed a fabulous meal!!
