Silver Medal Winners!

Our year 5 and 6 cricket team took part in a tournament yesterday against 8 other Tameside Primary Schools at Hyde Cricket ground. They won their round of matches and made it to the final against Arles. We did outstanding fielding, batting and team work. I was so proud to support and observe our young people going for gold! We came away with the silver medal, which we are so proud of. Next our year 3 and 4 pupils will take the challenge and I cannot wait to see how they do. Our trophy will being placed in our ever-growing cabinet. 

Visit from GB Sprinter

Year 1 loved their visit from GB sprinter Andy Robertson today as part of career's week. They learnt all about Andy's job as an athlete and were shocked to hear that he can only eat chocolate once a month! A big thank you to Andy for answering all of our questions and inspiring us to be future athletes.

Target Games

Year 1 loved using cricket bats and rackets for the time today in their targets games lesson. They practised hitting the ball at a target before we added fielders in to make it more challenging. Well done everyone!

Disney club

Lots of fun was had at the Disney Shooting Stars club tonight with Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. We played lots of games focusing on our fundamental movement skills whilst we pretended to be Mufasa, Simba, Nala, Zazu and Scar. We also practised our dribbling skills, throwing and catching. Finally we did a relay in teams to collect cones and then created a picture of Simba with them. Thank you to the Game Changers who helped to deliver the session and also judged the best Simba. 

Our lovely planter

The planter was kindly donated to school by Stalybridge Women's Institute and Mrs Holt came to visit school to see how the flowers in the planter were developing. Mrs Holt was very happy that the Ecoleaders have been looking after planter so well and have planted new bulbs and bedding plants. The Ecoleaders also showed Mrs Holt our vegetable garden and the crocuses flowers that we had planted in the winter. Mrs Holt showed us a bird's nest that she had found in her garden. 

Gardening Club

In gardening club we have weeded the beds and planted some carrot and lettuce seeds. We were delighted to find that our apple trees and cherry trees are producing flowers. Fingers crossed we will get lots of fruit in the autumn!
