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!

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.

2014 - Year 4 Tudor Day at Smithills HallTudor Child
Year 4 stepped back in time to the Tudor period and experienced the way people lived when Smithills Hall was new!
It was great fun!

Summer Concert 2014Summer Concert
Thanks to the children and staff for giving us such a great concert. Years 5 & 6 performed ‘Peace Child’ and Year 3 & 4 gave us ‘Over the Top’ - a selection of songs to commemorate World War 1. The show ended with everyone singing ‘Let It Go!’ from Frozen. It was a wonderful occasion and the audience loved it!

Y3 Trip to Tatton Park Farm Milk Man
It was all action down on the farm for Y3 as they experienced the life of evacuees from Manchester arriving at Tatton Park Farm in 1941. They fed the animals, learned how to milk cows, looked after the horses and made toast with aunt Mary.
Then it was time to go ‘back to the future’ for a rest back at school. Phew!

2014 Summer Fair Bouncers
Thanks to everyone who helped to pack this day full of non-stop summer fair fun! The games and stalls were as popular as ever and the refreshments were delicious.
The event raised 1,000 for school. Well done!

2014 Treasure HuntSprinters
A brilliant time was had by all at the Annual Family Treasure Hunt. The clues kept us guessing, the barbecue was delicious and the company was great. Thanks everyone for another superb event!

Go on ... Be a sport!
Everyone joined-in brilliantly at our recent Sports’ Day. The weather was perfect and lots of parents and friends came along to cheer their children on.

Year 5 Road Safety Poster Competition Winnerswinners
As part of road safety week, the children in Year 5 took part in a poster design competition. Stephensons solicitors, in partnership with the charity Break, delivered a road safety lesson and then judged the posters. Three lucky winners were chosen and won Trafford Centre vouchers.

‘Oh they do like to be beside the seaside!’Blackpool Tower
Year 2 have been comparing our own town of Ramsbottom with ‘a seaside location’ and it was time to experience it all first hand with a trip to Blackpool!
They took in the view from the top of the tower, went wild in Jungle Jim’s, had a look at the action in the ballroom and finished it all of with a walk down the prom! It was great fun!

Big Maths at HazlehurstBig Maths Logo
We have been using Big Maths for 6 months and it has been great fun. If you would like to know more about how the scheme works, please read our Big Maths Guide for Parents and Carers - it will give you an overview and tell you how you can help at home!

Year 6 Victorian ExperienceY6 Victorians
History came to life when the Year 6 class turned the clocks back to 1886 on their visit to Tatton Park for a Victorian experience! They came searching for work as servants to Lord and Lady Egerton and they had to work hard all day learning the skills that they would need, such as making beds, lighting fires, scrubbing floors and, best of all, making scones!
At the end of the day the housekeeper gave her verdict - and the good news was that they were all offered jobs! Hoorah - three good meals a day from now on and no more worries about being sent to work down the mine!

Gardening Day - Autumn 2013Green fingers?
Everyone had a great time getting close to nature on Gardening Day. Working alongside our friendly volunteers from Incredible Edible, the children and staff planted all sorts seeds, bulbs, shrubs and trees and when they were not outside in the fresh air they were inside doing Art and Craft work that was linked to the great outdoors!
 Thanks to everyone who helped to make it such good fun!
