Thank you to the parishioners of St Andrew’s for sharing your church with us for the day!

Turning back Time!Victorian Girl
Year 6 brought history to life when they became Victorian children for a day on their trip to Quarry Bank Mill. They learned about life in the mill and how different the daily routines were for children - from making the bed and playing games, to learning to read and write, and of course going to the privy! It was a fascinating day out.

Thanks to the organisers for another wonderful event!

There songs and poems were a lovely celebration of the food that we all enjoy and every child in the school took part in the performance. We also collected lots of food for the local charity, ‘Porch Boxes’, which provides crisis support for some of the most vulnerable people in the town. Thank you everyone!

Well done children and thank you to all the staff who helped to put it all together. Great job!

If You Go Down in the Woods Today ...Muddy Hand

They all had a great time at the Communitree Project in Summerseat. They learned all about the creatures of the forest; they climbed trees, made mud pies and ‘mini insect hotels’, and cooked sausages on a camp fire. It was a big adventure and great fun!

School Band Brings Sunshine to BirminghamBand MFY Birmingham
The school band gave a great performance in Birmingham Symphony Hall in the National Festival of Music For Youth. They were one of only two primary school brass bands in the country to be invited to take part in this prestigious event, and they made us all very proud.
The band played 4 pieces all linked by a weather theme: ‘I Can See Clearly Now the Rain Has Gone’, ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, ‘Bring Me Sunshine’, and ‘It’s Raining Men’ (for a big finish!).
The judges gave great feedback, saying they were ‘an excellent band’, who ‘captured the joy and fun of the music’ and had ‘excellent playing in all departments’.
Well done to all our wonderful young musicians!

The audience loved it!

What an action-packed trip!
