The audience loved it!

All the Fun of the FairA Fair Tuba Player
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 racing pigs got the fair off to a flying start and everyone had a great time. Well done!

This Week’s WorkReach for the stars!
Reception have made their own tartan pattern by weaving pieces of coloured paper. They learnt about St. Andrew and Scotland and wrote some super sentences.
Year 1 have made tartan kilts for St. Andrew’s Day. Some weaved paper and some coloured in. We loved the sporrans these children added!
Year 2 – Freddie remembered so many details about St Andrew and Isabelle M remembered how he became the patron saint of Scotland.
Year 3 –Max and Maisie wrote some fantastic facts and created a tartan design to celebrate St Andrews day. Year 3 also made chocolate shortbread to celebrate St Andrews Day.
Year 4 – For St.Andrew`s Day we made playdoh Loch Ness monsters and designed our own kilts.
Year 5 - Charlotte and Lila used tissue paper to recreate the flag of Scotland. Lily and Nancy used a mixture of materials to recreate the flag of Scotland.
The Year 6 class was set the challenge of using:
 a cardboard template; a piece of felt; needle and thread and decorative items to make a miniature Christmas stocking for our class tree.
Also,to mark Saint Andrew’s Day, we created woven baskets in the colour of the flag and wrote  fact cards to keep inside them.

There is lots more work to enjoy on the Children’s Work Page.

Thank you to all our friends at the temple for giving us such a warm welcome and sharing their faith with us.

Keeping the Faith Church Window
Year 1 enjoyed an interesting trip to St Andrew’s Church in Ramsbottom, as part of their RE topic. They learned about how Christian’s worship God and found out about lots of artefacts in the church building - they even had a go at ringing the Church bells!
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.

Farm to Fork in ReceptionFruit Salad
Our reception children had a great time when they visited Tesco to learn about where our food comes from. They explored behind the scenes in the supermarket and met lots of interesting people. Thanks to the staff of Tesco for taking us on a journey from Farm to Fork!

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!

Roald Dahl DayOompa Loompa and Fantastic Mr Fox
School looked very different when some colourful characters turned up on Roald Dahl Day. There were Oompa Loompas, Fantastic Foxes, Enormous Crocodiles and lots of Willie Wonkas, to name but a few! We were celebrating the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth and the world of imagination that he created for children everywhere. We also collected 160 for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Charity which support seriously ill chilldren in the UK.
Thanks to everyone who took part!

Let Loose!Raft Building
Years 5 & 6 were on top form with this year’s end of term performance of ‘Let Loose!’ - a hilarious musical escapade set in the ‘Slippery Slopes Activity Centre’! The singing and acting was brilliant and the audience loved every minute of the show.
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
... you’re sure of a big surprise, because you might find Year 2 getting very close to nature!
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!

Y3&4 Summer Concert - ‘The Piper’ Piper & Rats!

The audience loved it!

Be A Sport!
