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.

Careers Week - the fire service

Year 5 had a fantastic visit from Green Watch today. They discussed the importance of respect, honesty, hard-work and dedication needed in their jobs. The Fire Fighters gave an overview of the training needed to work as a team and the long hours involved. Many were very inspired by their talk. Thank you to Green Watch for their time and delivering lots of important messages.
