Week Commencing 12/02/2018
This week each class will get the opportunity to visit a place of worship, this gives the children the experience to look into other religions, and will continue to learn about where they visited in their lessons at school. We also have an assembly planned this week, in which each class can share what they learnt and seen throughout the week.
THE BIG REVEAL
Week Commencing 12/02/18
On Monday 12th February at our Esafety and cofffee morning, we had the big reveal of our Stain glass window, which is situated in the office area of the school. The parents were amazed by the fantastic artwork and the massive input the children at Quinton had in this amazing piece of art.

During the first part of the Spring Term, the children have been learning about other world faiths. As part of this, every child has had the opportunity to visit a place of worship. Teachers, children and parents have commented on the value of understanding other world religions, particularly in our diverse and multi cultural society. Feel free to come and see the books that each class have produced.
Safer Internet Day was on 7th February. We celebrated and raised the profile of internet safety all week! Some classes took part in role play, made posters, wrote advice to children and had lots of fun celebrating the wonderful things from the magical world of the internet...safely!
Bishop from malawi
We had another fabulous visit from a Bishop, all the way from Malawi. In 2016, the Diocese celebrates 50 years of partnering with Malawi. Over that time, many people have been helped and it has benefited people from Birmingham as well as the citizens from Malawi. It gives our children a wider global perspective, important for their future as global citizens.
We look forward to another 50 years!
Year 6 were fortunate to have a professional choreographer work with them during last term. They produced a truly remarkable performance alongside pupils from St. Michael's and Nonsuch, much to the delight of all the parents who came to see it. One parent said 'It has made me have faith in our education system again.' Well done Year 6, it really was EPIC!
