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.

Breaking Barriers Tour

Year 5 and 6 took part in a workshop, exploring how boys and girls can be good allies to each other, to help reduce the levels of harmful behaviours and violence against women and girls in society.

It aims to help level the playing field for boys and girls by showing each other equal respect, and boys calling out harmful behaviour and attitudes. It was very powerful and emotive.
