Mrs Lorraine Hallows (LSA) and Mrs Sue Baker (Nurture Assistant) have been holding these cake sales on a yearly basis. Children/parents are asked to donate cakes and during the afternoon the children purchase them. At the end of the day any cakes left over are sold to parents on the playground.
On this occasion, with the help of a few students, (Charlie Pritchett, Rayen Bouden, Hayden Jones and Kelsey Mann) they raised an amazing £313.28.

Are you smarter than a 10 year old?
Maths is often seen by many as hard, boring or both, but evidence suggests that a love of maths is no barrier to fun and humour, competitive spirit and teamwork.
To celebrate this, five North Solihull primary schools sent their finest mathematicians to a year 6 Maths Quiz, aptly organised by the teachers of Kingshurst Primary School with Mr. Sperry (Headteacher) acting as a head judge.
Young Einsteins (and their excited parents) were to face the mental challenges that would prove that everything around us behaves in mathematically determined ways: perimeter and volume measurements, money problems and distance calculations, multi-step problems, equations and other quite challenging tasks. Do you know the highest prime number? Do you still remember the value of pi? Well, many of us, spectators, had to resort to google and calculators for answers, however the little army of maths lovers trudged along.
Eleven challenging tasks, two hours of intensive teamwork, lots of smiles and one final result: appreciation of maths by all.
If anything, this event demonstrated that maths is even more applicable to the real world than the language and because we live in the real world, there were real winners: Castle Bromwich Junior School came first (with 32 points), followed closely by Windy Arbor Primary (23 points).
On behalf of all participants and their supporters, we would like to thank Kingshurst Primary ,the host school, and hope that another competition will be held again soon and the parents would also like to thank the dedicated team of teachers in our local schools, who work relentlessly to combat anti-maths stereotypes and develop the love of learning in our kids.
