Girls Football Team

The team took part in the inaugral Tameside Girls Cup competiton playing against a strong St. Mary's RC. The match took place regardless of Storm Gareth doing its best to prevent play. On top of the tough conditions we played without any substitutes, due to illness, but the girls played their part in a non-stop end-to-end encounter which they eventually lost 3-0. However, the effort and attitude shown bodes well for the future. Special mention must go to Lily Bowker, who although in Year 4, put in a Player of the Match performance, defending with dogged spirit throughout.

Viking invades Year 6!

The Year 6 class were invaded by Njal the Viking. He told us all about Viking life from everyday life around the longhouse and village, to traditions regarding the laws, marriage and the tactics and weaponry of the raids. We even got to have a battle after sailing across the hall! 

Science Week - The journey of a bee

It's Science Week and this year we're focusing on journeys through nature. In Year 2 our topic this term is bees and we've been learning all about what they do and why bees are so important! Today, we discussed the journey of the bee. We learnt about how a bee makes its journey to the flower to collect nectar and as it does it transfers pollen from one flower to the next. We decided to do our own pollination and became buzzy bees or beautiful flowers ourselves!

World Book Day!

Year 2 had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day, dressing up as their favourite characters from their favourite stories. After watching the fantastic assembly where they were told about lots of different books from the children in KS2, they enjoyed a trip to the library where they explored the variety of books available to them in school. In the afternoon they shared their favourite books with each other in 'Show and Tell' before completing activities based on Dr. Seuss' 'Cat in the Hat'. After I shared my favourite book,  'The Sneetches' by Dr.

Happy World Book Day

All of the children look fantastic dressed up in their outfits. We have all had a fun day reading some of our favourite books.

Take Me Out Book Special


Yesterday, was Miss Lewis's World Book Day assembly with a Take Me Out twist. Some children from Year 3, 4 and 5 who are passionate about a book took part in the assembly and had one minute to sell their book to the rest of the school. The rest of the school were the audience and had to join in with the catch phrases and then we got chance to discuss with the people around us which book we thought sounded the best. We then voted for our favourite by making love hearts with our hands. Well done to Freya Sibson in Year 4 who’s book Harry Potter won the Broadbent Fold votes.
