Progression to Pedals

We have now finished our Progression to Pedals sessions with Ross and James. The children have all been amazing, I am so proud of them! 93% of the class are now independently riding a two wheeler bike, at the start just 18% of them could do it.

Thank you Ross and James, we have loved it!

World Book Day

We had a super time celebrating world book day. We all looked fantastic dressed as our favourite characters.


We really enjoyed following the instructions to make our pancakes, they were delicious!

Andy Tooze

Wow! Year 1 had such a wonderful time with Andy this afternoon. We got to listen to Andy share some of his favourite poems and we even had the opportunity to join in too! We used actions to recite poems and filled in missing rhyming words too. The children then had the chance to write their own poems all about animals. With a little help from Andy, all of us wrote our own poems and some of us felt so confident that we even stood up to read them out and share them with our peers. 

Andy Tooze

What a fabulous visit we had today from Andy Tooze. The pupils were very enthused about writing their 20 word poems. 

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!
