World Book Day events 2024

World Book Day is celebrated between 7th-8th March and children may dress up on Friday 8th in their World Book Day costumes or in their own comfy clothes- please remember to bring in your favourite book from home to read.   The Reading Ambassadors and Librarians have set a World Book Day competition. Your child needs to create a new front cover for their class text which they are reading this half term.


Sean Perkins visit

We met author and illustrator Sean Perkins today who read us his book 'Ben and Oscar birthday party' 

He was very creative and used sound effects to narrate his story. We even enjoyed a sing song with his guitar to finish.

Please remember that you can order one or both of his signed books. Bring in your slip and money next week.


Spring 2

Hello Nursery,

I hope you had a lovely and fun filled holiday. This half term we are Walking Through The Jungle!

Please find attached the Medium Term Plan and Home Learning Grid for anyone wanting to do some additional learning (this is entirely optional).

Children's Mental Health Week and E-Safety

Children’s Mental Health Week will take place from 5-11 February 2024. The theme this year is ‘My Voice Matters’. My Voice Matters is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves.

This year, we want to empower children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing. Our aim is for Children’s Mental Health Week, we want all children and young people to be able to say – and believe - “My Voice Matters.”


New football kit

We were so excited when our new football kit was delivered today and cannot wait to wear it for our future matches. Thank you to ESFA for donating it to our school.


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.


Reading Ambassador Book Reviews

Well done to our Reading Ambassadors who have all created a book review to display in out KS2 Library. They were asked to make a book review by Tameside Libraries to promote reading across the school. These will be shared on the Tameside Library social media accounts. 

Can you make a book review for our library? Tell us why you like the book, what it is about, who else will enjoy it and give it a star rating out of 5.
