This Week’s WorkReach for the Stars
Reception have been learning about Spain and Isabelle Atkinson wrote a super shopping list for the ingredients that we need to make Paella. Isabelle Bruce knew exactly what she needed to pack into her suitcase and she did some super independent spelling in her writing too!
In Year 1 Bonnie has written a report about creatures called Foogles and Daisy has written a report about a creature called a Gogle Eye Ball! (Her Science explanation about shadows was excellent too!) Year 2 have been learning about different habitats with Mrs Bird; Harry drew a lovely picture to go with his good work – well done to him and Polly for their lovely work!
In Year 3 Annie has been working hard with time and Kate wrote a super piece of writing about the secret life of ants!
In Year 4 Cara prepared notes about an object of her choice and found powerful vocabulary to write her own Kenning poem about a candle and Ella-May wrote a thoughtful Kenning about the month of January.
In Year 5 Lewis looked at a shot from an animated film and gave a full description of what he saw and Ellie produced a good diagram to show the relative sizes of the Sun, Earth and Moon. She also got all her questions right!
Following a 3 week project with the Halle Orchestra, our Year 6 pupils wowed the audience with their spectacular performance at a concert on Monday evening and Shania wrote a lovely postcard expressing thanks. The postcard image is a collaboration by Year 6 artists; Beethoven...Warhol style. Finally, In Year 6 Sam Powner prepared some very clearly written instructions for a tie dye T shirt.

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!

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

Thanks to Tesco for giving the children a lovely day!

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!
