This Week’s WorkReach for the Stars
Reception have been making glasses with coloured lenses to see how it changes the light; Emily C, Evan and Albert drew some wonderful pictures! Year 1 created beautiful snow globes and they had a visit from a dragon this week! Tom, Alfie R and Freddie all wrote excellent missing posters to try and find him! In Year 2, Oliver wrote a diary entry from a monkey about all the things it did in our story and Zak, Harrison and Megan used lots of different skills to create their snowmen for our winter display. In Year 3, Molly and Daniel wrote super journey stories. In Year 4, Annie persevered with her column multiplication and succeeded. Year 4 have also been baking all week. They made cookies from around the world – Norway, Switzerland, The Netherlands, France and Spain and they will be selling them at the Christmas Fair! In Year 5, Alfie and Nathan did some great maths! In Year 6, Amy and Daniel wrote a powerful personification poems about Winter.
We hope you enjoy our work!

Y1 Visit to St Andrew’s ChurchChurch Eagle
Year 1 had a very interesting time when they visited St Andrew’s Church. They enjoyed looking around and learning all about what people do when they go to church. The vicar was very helpful and told them lots about the history of St Andrew’s. He even let them ring the church bells!

Harvest FestivalHarvest Musicians
Thanks to everyone who helped to make our Harvest Festival so special and so successful. The school hall was full of visitors, who enjoyed watching all the children’s contributions to the harvest service. The artwork, the songs, the poetry and the readings were all lovely and we made a very good donation to a worthwhile local charity, the Porch Project, which provides crisis support for some of the most vulnerable people on the town.

Scooter DayGood to Go!
Everyone had a great time getting to grips with the scooter challenges set by our visiting scooter enthusiasts - ‘Scooters the Race’.
It was wonderful exercise and lots of fun too!

Mud, Glorious Mud!2015 Y2 Mud
Year 2 had a fantastic time exploring the forest, creating dens, learning about wildlife, playing hide and seek and of course experiencing the mud!
Thanks to Danny and all the staff for getting stuck in - and thanks to all the parents who scrubbed their children clean again ready for school the next day!

Key Stage 2 Summer ConcertSummer Concert Pirates
Well done to the children for giving us a wonderful evening of entertainment with their hilarious performance of ‘Pirates Versus Mermaids’. The singing, dancing and acting was superb and the costumes were full of summer colour.
Thanks to the staff for putting it all together so brilliantly!
The audience loved it!

Summer Fair 20152015 Summer Fair Balloons
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 launch of 350 balloons in the Balloon Race was a spectacular sight!
The event raised 1,500 for school. Well done!

School Band Performance at Bury Agricultural ShowSchool Band at Agricultural Show
Well done to all our excellent young musicians for entertaining visitors to Bury Agricultural Show. It was a challenge to keep the music going when there was so much agricultural action going on - but they did it, with flying colours!
Well done!

Robinwood 20152015 Robinwood
Well done to our fearless, action-packed Year 6 class and their brilliant teachers who had a great time doing outdoor and adventurous activities at the Robinwood Activity Centre at Dobroyd Castle.
They took part with wonderful enthusiasm and pushed themselves to their limits!

Year 4 & 5 Living HistoryAnglo Saxon Children
History came to life for Years 4 and 5 when they became Anglo Saxons for a day at Tatton Park. They built shelters, foraged for food, got creative with clay and cooked some tasty snacks out in the open. It was great fun but at the end of the day it was nice to get back to the year 2015 for a few home comforts!

Sports’ Day 2015
Well done to everyone who competed with such energy in our Sports’ Day. The non-stop action was cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd of supporters. It was a great occasion!

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!

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!
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!
