Year 2 Commonwealth Multi Sports event at Telford Tennis Club in Oakengates. 7.6.22
OUR JUBILEE PARTY 25.5.22
Perry the Bull , the official Commonwealth Mascot of the Commonwealth games visited Wombridge on 2.3.22. The children were absolutely mesmerised with Perry and learnt so much about the Commonwealth games that will be taking place in Birmingham.
Here are some facts:
Perry is named after the Perry Barr area of Birmingham, the home of the Alexander Stadium, which will host the athletics events at the Games, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies. The stadium is undergoing a £72 million transformation in time for the Games.
The mascot’s rainbow-coloured hexagons represent the coming together of the Commonwealth in equal partnership with the diverse communities of Birmingham and the West Midlands at the Games in 2022.
Perry is a friendly, kind and cheeky bull, an animal with which Birmingham has been synonymous for centuries. The city has had a market area known as the Bull Ring since the 16th century; the site is close to the current Bullring shopping centre, with an iconic bronze bull statue at its entrance.
Perry is wearing a medal, which references Birmingham’s iconic Jewellery Quarter, the UK’s centre for jewellery and precious metals for more than two hundred years. The area still produces around 40% of the country’s jewellery and is home to one of the world’s largest Assay Offices, hallmarking millions of gold, silver and platinum items each year.
The mascot’s sports kit includes blue, red and yellow stripes, a nod to the colours of the official flag of Birmingham, and the city’s motto, Forward.
On Friday 17th March 2022, the Scout Leaders visited school to tell our pupils all about Scouts. The representatives lead the assembly sharing information about how scouts can support young people with their personal development, empower and make a positive contributions to their society.
The leaders weaved the school values of L.E.A.D into their presentation and are enthusiastic about developing exciting opportunities for the children of Wombridge in future collaborations with the school.
On 7/4/22, we had our first Spring Fair. Our talented pupils created some fantastic goods to sell including book marks, key rings, cakes, sweets, paper weights, tea light holders and much more ….. We had games to play including a Human Fruit Machine, Guess the name of the Unicorn and Tin Can Alley.
We were raising money to buy playground equipment for our children to play with at break/lunchtime. Here are some photos of the fantastic creations:
