Here you can find out all about what is going on in School and what we have planned for this year.



Spelling Bee

Our children have been working really hard to learn the spellings for the school Spelling Bee.  All children have taken part in class spelling bee heats and the final took place on the 18th June.  The finalists were Callum and Chris from Year 3, Taylor and Reagan from Year 4,  James and Tayo from Year 5 and Rebecca and Ellen from Year 6.  

After a grueling final where James and Tayo were the last 2 standing, Tayo was announced the winner with James a very close runner up.  Well done to everyone who took part and took time to learn their spellings!

Friday Reading Cafes

On a Friday, the Early Years and Year 1 hold reading Cafes and stay and play sessions where parents are invited in to read with their children and engage in learning activities.  It is always wonderful to see so many parents coming in to school and supporting their children.  Keep checking back here for more photographs.

Adventure race January 2019

Artist in residence visit to Year 5 November 2018

When the artist visited thr Year 5 class, we asked that he work  around our forthcoming Rainforest topic.  We focused on creating silhouettes and jungle settings using a range of materials such as paint and pencil crayons. The children really enjoyed the day and as you can see the results were high quality too!

School Council Linking Project Leadership Day - November

On the 16th November the School Council attended a Linking Project Leadership Day at the Council Chambers.  They spent the day with the School Councillors from Alt and Roundthorn Schools.

They worked on developing their leadership skills and thoroughly enjoyed the day. 

The first exciting thing that happened during the day, was to meet the Mayor, Councillor Javid Iqbal.  He spoke to the children and answered their questions.  His motto was; ‘Inspire to Aspire.’

The School Councillors from the three schools explained that the benefits of the Linking Project were:

  • Collaboration
  • Friendship
  • Team Building
  • Communication
  • Fun

The School Councillors from the three schools explained that the reasons why the schools were involved in the Linking Project were:

  • To learn about other communities, places and people in Oldham
  • To share knowledge
  • To learn respect for others
  • To learn to interact with others
  • To communicate with new people
  • To Embrace other cultures and celebrate diversity
  • Making friends
  • Learning about similarities and differences

The children then completed an enterprise project to design a linking project badge and slogan.  The designs were amazing, as were the slogans and we can’t wait to find out the winners.  See below some pictures of the day.

Year 4 Farm visit - November 2018

We were very lucky to secure a free trip for Year 4 to Cockfields Farm.  The children walked up to the farm and spent the day learning about their animals.  They looked at and stroked lizards,  snakes, a giant tortoise and an owl and fed some of the animals.  One of the children said that the owl's feathers were the softest thing they had ever felt.  The children particularly enjoyed the play area and the giant trampoline.  

Cross Country Competition - November

Congratulations to the school Cross Country Team, who participated in the sports cluster competition against 16 schools and won overall.  They also won the Year 5/6 girls and boys races and came second in the Year 3/4 girls and boys races.  

The children raced excellently.  It really showed the benefits of the daily mile as all the schools in the top three also run the daily mile.

Artist in residence visit to Year 6

In November Year 6 experienced a wonderful day of art.  They built up their art skills and produced an amazing self-portrait.

Below are some pictures from the day.
