We were thrilled to receive this letter from Birmingham Royal Ballet this week to inform us that 3 of our Year 1 children. have secured places on their Gifted & Talented ‘Dance Track’ programme from September 2017. This is a monumental achievement as they were chosen from 4000 children from across Birmingham and the West Midlands taking part in school workshops, and from 737 children who reached the final workshops at Birmingham Hippodrome. We are so proud of them and will support them on their exciting journey.
We have just commenced a 9-week ‘Couch to 5K’ running programme for the Four Dwellings staff, in conjunction with ‘Run Birmingham’. The staff felt really energised after the first session and are looking forward to the next one session and progressing through the programme. We can do this!

Our girls football club for Years 1-3, provided in partnership with the University of Birmingham Sports Faculty, continues to be really popular this term!
It provides the opportunity for our younger girls to be introduced to football, be active and have fun with friends, with pathways in place for all participants to continue to play and enjoy football through The FA’s SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Club Project.
The Project is an integral part of The FA’s objective to double girls’ football participation by 2020 and has been established in a joint partnership between The FA and SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup.
If you want to join the fun, please speak to Mr Steadman.
Our Year 4 children had a fun and energetic afternoon at Shenley Academy this week, competing in a ‘Change 4 Life’ festival aimed at promoting physical activity as one of the ways of leading a healthy lifestyle.
The children, all of whom were new to this type of opportunity, competed against other local schools in a range of running and throwing events, finishing in second place overall with a massive 357 points. Well done everyone, you were real team players!
