BBC's Ten Pieces

This half term we have explored some fantastic classical pieces of music through BBC's Ten Pieces project. We selected as a class 'A Night On Bare Mountain' composed by Modest Mussorgsky. From this we have created spooky stories using the music to provoke different emotions into our writing.

                 "This morning we read our spooky stories to Year 1 and 2. I felt nervous but I read it anyway and they really enjoyed it." -Michael


Some examples of the children's writing: 

Year 1 visit Holy Trinity Church

Year 1 have been to Holy Trinity church today. We watched a play all about the Christmas story. We really enjoyed it especially all the puppets and finding carrots for the camels. a Big Thank You to everybody at the church for inviting us.


We all had a fabulous time at the theatre joining in with all the songs and dances. it certainly got us in the festive spirit!

Fire service visit!

Year 2 had a visit from the fire service today, it was very exciting! The firemen talked to us about how fire fighting has changed since the great fire of London and showed us what they wear to protect themselves.  We then explored the fire truck and everyone had a turn firing the hose!

Year 5 go to University!

On Thursday 20th November five children from Year 5 were invited to Manchester University as part of a Primary Awareness procect.  Along with children from five other Dukinfield schools they met Student Ambassadors who gave the children a tour of the campus and spoke about some of the courses available.  In the afternoon the children visited the Pharmacy department and used pestle and mortars to make tablets!  It was a fantastic day and all of the children thoroughly enjoyed it.

R.E. Week

As part of R.E. week we have been learning about the story of Jonah and the Whale.  We had a visit from Reverend Julie today who shared lots of stories with us.


We have successfully been using mymaths and bug club online homework. Well done Year 4.

Our Cooking Club

Mrs Lowe and Miss Moon run The Cooking Club every Wednesday for children from Year 1 through to Year 6.
The children enjoy trying out new recipes whilst learning some new skils within the kitchen. This year we have made pizza, spaghetti bolognese, potato skins, and fajitas. These dishes don't always make it home and are enjoyed at the club mmmmmm. :)

Religious Education Creative Week


This week we have been learning about different religions including Buddhism. We have made an origami lotus!

To improve our Christianity knowledge Reverend Julie came into class and told stories from The Bible.
