Year 6 leavers assembly

As we say a sad goodbye to our lovely Year 6 class, we wish them the very best wishes for the future.  They have been a credit to the school in a very challenging year.  Please see below some of their lovely playing and singing and photographs of their time at school.


Year 3 linking project visit to Castleshaw, June 2021

In June, Year 3 visited the Castleshaw Centre to learning as part of the schools linking project.  

Castleshaw Educational Visits - Years 3, 4 and 5 May 2021

During the week of the 17th May, Year 3, 4 and 5 all visited the Castleshaw Centre to enhance their Geographical skills.  

Year 3  focussed on recapping their knowledge about rivers. They explored the valley, walked up the River Tame and found the source, this is  where the river begins its journey. After this, they went pond dipping and identified creatures that lived in the local habitat.

Year 4 and 5  focussed on recapping their knowledge of map reading and orienteering. They started the morning by matching the symbols to the correct label. After this, they used their skills to follow a course on a map. In the afternoon, they went orienteering. Using their skills, they were able to locate points on a map and follow a map around the local area.

Year 5 Space home learning

In the summer term Year 5 learned all about Earth, moon and space. They learned about the planets, why we have night and day and all about the moon.

As part of the learning the children designed own moon buggy and were set the task of having a go at making one at home. Some children  also continued the learning themselves and made models of the solar system, as well as even making space helmets!  Well done Year 5 for all of your extra effort with home learning.  

Here are some photographs of the completed home learning.

Comic relief 2021

We all very much enjoyed wearing something red to school on Friday 19th March for Comic Relief.  Mrs Taylor led the Assembly to disscuss red nose day.  We were delighted to raise over £60.

Ash Wednesday

We were so lucky to all receive these these bookmarks, hand made by the Reverend Amy in our Ash Wedneday Act of Worship.   As the date fell close to Valentines day, we thought about what love looks like?

There were amazing answers by the children as always - “love is what is inside us that makes us move and live”
