School is open today despite the snow! It is great to see that most people have managed to get safely to school. Well done. Just a reminder that if school is closed we will inform parents through our usual text messaging service as well as posting information on this website and informing Key 103 and the Manchester Evening News. If you do not receive these texts we may not have your most up to date phone number. Please let the office staff know of any changes to your contact details.

We have had fun in the snow this afternoon before the children came home.

Online Safety

During online safety lessons this week several children have mentioned using an app called TikTok – this was formerly known as Musical.ly. There were many concerns raised by the children and we ask all parents to read the letter sent home today and to have a look at the information  below. Please note the age restriction of 13+.

World War 1

ww1 remembrance
Year 4 used drama to commemorate 100 years since WW1 ended. In small groups, they created their own version of Chapel Street, Altrincham, ‘The bravest little street in Britain’, as 161 men signed up from this one street when the war began. Each group were given a name of a soldier from the Cheshire Regiment and created their home on Chapel street, they then used silent drama to act out what life at home may have been like before the war began, when they waved the men off to war, receiving news from the front line and finally ending with the news of whether their soldier returned. The children demonstrated a mature and respectful attitude throughout and gained a deeper level of understanding of what life was like, not just for soldiers and nurses at war, but also for the family and friends left behind.

Macmillan Coffee Morning 2018

We were so proud of our school community this morning – they raised over £500 for Macmillan at our coffee morning. Staff and parents donated delicious cakes and staff served ‘grab and go’ coffees and teas for our busy parents. Our fabulous lunchtime organisers held a cheese pie lunch and raffle adding to the total. Mr Connolly made two gorgeous sausage rolls for a staff competition and this was won by Miss Catahan – she very kindly shared it with the rest of us.

A huge thank you to everyone in our school family who participated.

Bees!

Year 4 have been inspired by the Manchester Bees and have learnt all about how important and interesting bees are. They visited some of the bees that have landed at Manchester City on a very rainy day. We are not sure how Mr Lowe ended up with an umbrella!
