Manchester Athletics Champions 2017

Athletics Chamions 2017

We were absolutely delighted to be crowned Manchester Athletics Champions in a very hard fought contest. Miss Jagger reported that the competition was one of the best that we have ever attended, with every child from every school supporting each other and cheering for each other. She felt it showed the true spirit of sport. Our children agreed!

Autumn Term 2016

Wow! What a busy start to our school year.

Over  the holiday we had part of our roof replaced, which will make our classrooms watertight and warmer in the Winter.

We have welcomed our new Nursery children, who all settled very quickly as a result of the care of our Foundation Stage Team. Mr Bell also became a father during that time and we were so pleased to see Zachary George and his mum and dad when they visited school.

We have also welcomed new staff members, Miss Robinson and Miss Frigerio into our Foundation Stage Team and Miss Worsley, Mrs Egharevba, Miss Thompson and Miss Worsley into our Lunchtime Team. It already feels like they have always been at our school!

Year 4 and 5 have started their swimming lessons and we have already got some children who are happily reaching the expected standard.

Year 5 also took part in Bike Right training with nearly every child in the class achieving their Grade 2 certificates.

Lots of fantastic trips have also taken place –

Reception children went to look at the Monastery.

Year 1 are den building in Lyme Park this week. They had a fairy move into their classroom and we suspect that she might be going on their trip with them!

Year 2 spent a great day exploring Skipton Castle. They even got put in the dungeon!

Year 3 had an extremely interesting day at Knowsley Safari Park. They came back buzzing with excitement.

We have many other great experiences planned for this term.

We had three Speech and Language students join us for a placement and four Trainee Teachers came for a week to prepare them for their block placements later in the term.
