Challenge Me Hula Hooping Event

Last week, the whole school took part in the Challenge Me Hula Hooping event. EYFS had to hula hoop for 2 minutes, KS1 for 4 minutes and KS2 for 6 minutes without stopping! This was to try to improve our stamina. We had lots of fun and all got stickers for taking part.

Creating public artwork in Key Stage 2!

We were delighted to be asked to work with sculptor Michael Condron again!   Michael  last worked with some of our pupils back in 2016 when he was commissioned to create a sculpture for the new Ashton Interchange, which is now nearing completion.  On Friday, pupils from Key Stage 2 created some designs based on 'Journeys' to be included in the final artwork.  Twelve children drew their designs before scratching them onto plaster disks.  Michael will fire glass onto the plaster disks in his kiln so their designs will be moulded into the coloured glass circles that will form part of the publi

Maths Week

Year 6 enjoyed taking part in our 'Maths in the workplace' themed week. We created geometric patterns as part of our ongoing RE work. This was displayed in a presentation in the hall with other examples from the rest of the school. We had parent visitors in during the week sharing how they use maths in their careers. We have focused on budgeting skills thinking about how we can get the best deals as a business person. 

Birdman experience

On Tuesday 5th November we had a visit from the 'Birdman' Alan Ames. He brought in some amazing birds of prey and told us lots of interesting facts about how each one has adapted to be the perfect predator. 


During Maths Week England, each child from every class produced a piece of Maths related artwork.  The children really enjoyed being creative with Maths and the results were fantastic! On Thursday, the Hall was transformed into an Art Gallery for the children to visit. A selection of work was exhibited from each class which included shape garlands, shape rockets, symmetrical patterns, arrays, tessellations, optical illusions and geometric designs.  There were some interesting conversations in the "Gallery" where the children discussed their favourite works of art! 

Outdoor Learning Day

All of the children had a great time during Outdoor Learning Day. The children in Year 3,4, 5 and 6 learnt a lot from the RSPB workshops. Year 1 and 2 produced some fantastic artwork from the leaves that they collected.  Well done everyone!
