As always Adams’ is a busy school and the summer holiday is no exception. This year we held two Summer Schools with a week of activities for boys and girls aged 7-11 and a four day transition event for our incoming Year 7 pupils.

We were really pleased to welcome 24 children during August to take part in our annual open summer school. The boys and girls had a busy week playing basketball and football, as well as taking part in team building activities, den building, and learning to play three Taiko drumming pieces. There were many more exciting activities including baking, orienteering and camp craft. A big thank you to the Catering Academy Chef Darren Barnes for passing on his expertise with the cookie making.   We must also extend a big thank you to the coaches from Kidderminster Harriers Football Club who ran a fantastic team building and coaching session on the Wednesday afternoon.

Having had a busy week the children put on a superb Taiko drumming performance to over fifty of their family and friends on the Friday afternoon. Following on from this they were rewarded with a barbeque and some fun on the ‘smoothie bike’. A great week was had by all; many thanks to all of the Adams’ staff who took part in running activities.

During the last week of the holidays we welcomed 44 of our incoming year 7 pupils to take part in a four day transition summer school. Another ten Adams’ staff ran a wide range of fun activities throughout the week; a big thank you to all involved. The boys were kept busy each morning with members of the PE department working on basic rugby skills and development. Throughout the remainder of the week the boys competed in teams to build and programme robots to take part in robot wars at the end of the week. When they weren’t busy with rugby and robots they had an opportunity to develop their language skills, learning some French and German, as well as taking part in team building activities, 3D model making and some fun maths activities. The week certainly provided a great opportunity to make new friends, get to know the school better and meet some staff before the start of term. We look forward to seeing the boys again in class for the start of term.
