The Magical Snow Garden

We have been sharing the story of a penguin who wanted to make a magical garden. The children have really enjoyed the story and created some fantastic penguins. Great job, Nursery.

Dukinfield Youth Football Club

Today, Dukinfield Youth Football club visited us to do a taster session and promote their club and healthy lifestyles. The children took part in a number of activities working and developing their co-ordination, balll control, speed, balance and team work. Good job everyone! 

Who wouldn't want to talk in class?

As part of our current genre of Persuasive Writing, Year 5 took some time out to play "Think, Pair, Share", telling each other different rhetorical questions!  For those who don't know, rhetorical questions do not need an answer in response!  They will be using this feature of writing in their own persuasive letters soon and this activity will help with their ideas!  Well done Year 5!  Mrs Blomeley

Marvellous Music

The children had a treat today in music when Mrs O'Leary brought her accordion into school. She used it to accompany the children when they were playing , This Old Man. They are becoming really quite proficient and it sounded wonderful with the accordion's accompaniment.
