Birmingham Dogs home

During May, I had an idea to raise money for the Birmingham Dogs home. I decided that they needed help in providing food and shelter for the dogs that they take in. With the help of my mum, I decided what I would do to raise the money. I decided to do a sponsored run around the block by my house. I would run it 5 times without stopping! I created a sponsor form and asked family and friends to sponsor me for this great charity.

On the day of my run, many family members came to cheer me on and I was pleased that I had completed this challenge. I then collected the money of my sponsors. I raised a total of £212.

 We got in touch with the dogs home and they invited us to go and see them. I took the money I had raised and a big box of food treats for the dogs. As I arrived, the workers were very grateful for the box and money and Rachel brought a dog called Ronnie out to me. They let me give him a  treat and some water. He was a really lovely dog and he listened well.

 Today, Rachel came in to my class and told my class mates what I did to help their charity. She showed us lots of photographs and told us all about the great work that the charity do to help thousands of dogs!  She also taught us some importamt ways of how to keep safe when we meet dogs out in the community.

 I enjoyed the whole experience and was glad that Rachel came to meet my class!

 Big Hoot Project

At CBJS, we have been very fortunate to be given the privilege of participating in an art project called The Big Hoot. This project involved us decorating a 90cm owlet, which will then be displayed as part of a sculpture trail in Birmingham during the summer break.


Our design has been inspired by the ideas of identity and community. Hands are a prominent feature of our design as each one is unique and individual, just as we all are. Children from across our school drew around their hands, decorated it in a way of their choice and then finally used words to describe what the Castle Bromwich Junior School community means to them. The handprints have been layered over the top of one another to represent that our school community is a place where together we can all learn, work and succeed.   


Since the completion of the project, we have been informed that our owlet will either be displayed at Birmingham Airport or Sheldon Country Park. So keep your eyes peeled for our school owlet on your travels!


A huge well done goes to all children and staff that participated in the project!


Snowdon Climb

8 children and 4 adults  from CBJS tackled the highest mountain in Wales on Thursday the 4th June. The climb ( all 1085m of it!) took  4h15 of tough but beautiful walking before we flew the Castle Bromwich Junior School flag at the top. It then took us a further 2h 30 to make our descent. The teamwork, resilience and perseverance shown by all the children was just fantastic as were the views from the top.
