Tuesday – Our intrepid explorers from nursery and reception are finally asleep after a hard day at the farm. Let’s hope they have as much fun tomorrow.
Wednesday – They’re back! Looking tired, but full of stories. Thank you all our teachers who helped look after them at Dodford.
It’s morning assembly time and there is a phone call from a very upset billy goat. A nasty troll is hiding under the bridge and he can’t get over the river. Could St Vincent’s help out? Of course we could … with a bit of help from some dads and grandads who were in for the day.
We have some talented engineers – take a look:
This year we spent the day at the Marine Lake at Weston-Super-Mare. We swam and paddled, dug holes and built sandcastles, played cricket and football and even practised writing in the sand. After lunch we went crabbing with the leftover chicken from our sandwiches. Some very clever mums caught some limpets to use as extra bait, which helped us to catch an enormous crab! We even buried a child or two. A great day out!
Congratulations to Kye, Shanti, Mia, Euan, Leah, Shakira andHolly who received Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament for the first time on 22nd June.

We are the champions!!!!!
We competed against the other Nechells schools at the Alexander Stadium. For the third year running, St Vincent’s were the champions. Check out all our winners below.
Year 2 walked along the river at Dovedale. The stepping stones were a bit tricky! Good job they had some bread left over for those hungry ducks.
Reception spent the day at a forest school.
This was a wonderful day with dance, float making and a themed lunch menu. In the afternoon all the floats set out on an amazing carnival procession up to Heartlands Academy. With World Cup spirit the children cheered the teams of footballers made up of parents, children and staff. The children beat the staff 1-0 but the parents managed to hold them to a 0-0 draw. Good fun!
Come and have a look at our displays in the KS1 entrance and the KS2 area. You can see the work we have been doing on all the major world faiths. Each class visited a place of worship and investigated the beliefs and traditions , symbols and rituals of each faith. Particular thanks to our Muslim children who shared their own faith knowledge this week.
Year 3 and 4 have led our Holy Week prayer services this year. They used what they learned in their Light theme to create a beautiful series of shadow films to tell the story of Jesus’ final journey to Calvary.
