Summer 2015 - Gardening DayGardening Day
There were lots of green-fingered gardeners in action at our recent Gardening Day.
With help from our wonderful volunteers from Incredible Edible, the children filled the school grounds with flowers and seeds, to create summer colour and new habitats for wildlife. It was great fun and we will enjoy watching everything come into bloom as the rest of the year progresses. Well done to everyone involved!

This Week’s WorkReach for the Stars
Our Reception children have continued looking at mini-beasts this week. They have been matching them to their habitats and painting mini-beast pebbles! As part of their Gardening Day activities they finished off garden-themed patterns and labelled plants. Well done Darcie-Mae and the two Toms.
In Year 1, Izzy has written a very imaginative poem about what might be inside her dragon egg, and Heidi has written about a dragon based on the text we have been reading this week called ‘Tell Me a Dragon’.
As part of their Gardening Day activities Year 2 we wrote ‘cinquains’; they wrote about throwing the seed balls and making wishes. Well done Edward. They also used fingerprints to make different paintings of flowers. Brook created a lovely poem and painting.
In Year 3, Lily and Kate wrote super book reviews about our class novel, “Sparky`s Return.”
In Science, Year 4 have been learning how to make dichotomous keys. When they had learned how to make them, they used them to sort the living things they found last week on their mini-beast hunt. Well done to Emily and Coby’s groups.
In Year 5, Tom and George created a great stop motion animation with headings, sound effects and credits, and Jasmine, Ellie, Molly and Katieleigh created lovely information sheets about the flowers they planted on gardening day!
Finally, a team of green-fingered Year 6 gardeners worked incredibly hard digging-out and planting a new wildflower bed, and Imogen produced a superb piece of writing about an imaginary school trip to the Earth’s core!
We hope you enjoy our work!

The Tower Challenge 2015Peel Tower
The whole school put on their walking boots (or wellies) and set off up Holcombe Hill to complete the Tower Challenge - a walk to Peel Tower, a famous local landmark.
It was a wonderful effort from everyone involved and the view from the top was tremendous.
... And best of all ... when we got back to school there was an Easter Egg Raffle. What could be better?!
Well done to all our intrepid hikers!
So far we have raised 2253 - Amazing!

Very Enterprising!2015 Enterprise Bunny
Each class was given 40 to spend and challenged to set up a mini-enterprise that would make the biggest profit possible by the end of the week.
On Friday afternoon we held an Enterprise Fair in the school hall and invited parents and friends to ‘come and buy’! The children’s ideas were terrific - from cookery and crafts to designer shopping bags and home made fashions  - we even had a Photo Studio!
As usual, the support from our wonderful families was brilliant !
Everyone was a winner because the profits from each mini-enterprise were given back to the class to buy something of their choosing!

Congratulations!
Well done to the school band for winning the instrumental group class at Ramsbottom Music Festival!
We are very proud of you!

2015 Reception Tesco TripBig Cucumber
Our reception children had a great time when they visited Tesco as part of their ‘Farm To Fork’ topic. They learned about where some of our colourful vegetables come from, they helped to make hot cross buns in the bakery, they learned about fish on the fish counter and they finished it all off with a fruit tasting session.
Thanks to Tesco for giving the children a lovely day!

Our reception children had some very special visitors to them get creative with Christmas crafts - their parents! It was heads down and deep concentration all the way - and the children worked hard too!

Christmas ConcertLittle Angel
The audience had a wonderful time at our Key Stage 2 Christmas Concert. The  children’s singing, dancing and acting was excellent and the costumes sparkled with Christmas light! Year 3&4 performed a traditional Nativity play, ‘Nazareth Welcomes You’, then Years 5&6 blasted off with ‘An Out of This World Christmas’, and finally all the juniors joined together for a ‘big finish’ with ‘The happiest Christmas Tree’.
Thanks to all the staff for putting on the show and to the children for sharing their talents. Happy Christmas!

2014 Christmas FairMusicians
Thanks to everyone who helped to make this year’s Christmas Fair such a great success. The refreshments and the stalls were excellent and the school band kept us in a festive mood by playing a selection of Christmas classics. The fair raised 1500 for school. Well done!

Y6 Victorian ExperienceBaker Boy
Tatton Hall opened its servants’ entrance to a group of hopeful new recruits from Hazlehurst school recently. The children (and staff) had to roll up their sleeves and work hard all day in an attempt to impress the house-keeper and try to get a job as a servant. They scrubbed the floors, polished the silver, made the beds, and even baked scones for afternoon tea! What super servants they were! We were pleased to say that they were all hired at the end of the day!
Then it was time to head back to school in the year 2014 for a good  rest!
Tatton Park sent us a letter about how our children behaved and joined in on their visit. We are very proud of them! Tatton Park Letter.

Lest We ForgetDrummer Boy
The Y4 children took part in the 2014 Service of Remembrance when they visited Bury Fusilier Museum on the 11th of November. We were very proud of the dignified way in which they showed their respect for the brave soldiers who lost their lives in the war.
After the service there was a chance to learn more about life during the war years, including attending a war-time wedding!

2014 Samba DayMini drummer
Everyone enjoyed a taste of the Caribbean on our recent Samba Day. The whole school joined in with Samba drumming and ‘Tamboo Bamboo’ with a visiting specialist percussion teacher and meanwhile in the classrooms there was Caribbean Art, dancing and food, and a geography investigation into where our bananas come from. It was great fun!

Harvest Festival 2014Harvest Singers
Thanks to everyone who helped to make our Harvest Festival a big success. The children’s songs and poems were lovely and the event was enjoyed by an audience of over 100 parents and friends.
Thanks for all the donations to the Porch Project charity - we estimate that we donated over 1000-worth of food and toiletries to this worthy cause.
