A big thank you to Mr Fetherston and his team at Morrisons in Cheadle for their kind donation of herbs, plants and flowers for our EYFS outdoor learning environment. The children had a great time gardening and I think you'll agree, it's looking great!
What a jam packed week we had for Storytelling Week!
From 'Drop everything and read' sessions, to parents coming in to read with their children, to book swaps, a visit from the librarian, reading with our Year 5 buddies and World Book Day! It was a super busy, but fun week!
In Religion, we have learning about special celebrations in the Church. As part of this topic, the children in Reception visited Church on Thursday where they were met by Father John. He talked to the children about specific features of the Church, before allowing the children to explore themselves.
The children were incredibly well behaved!
There has been a dinosaur invasion in the Early Years! There were footprints left all around our playground and dinosaur eggs left in each class. A dinosaur even left a video of himself in Reception!! The children were incredibly excited about the new hook into learning for our topic this term on dinosaurs
On Friday, we held our Christmas Craft session in the school hall. We welcomed lots of parents, carers, siblings and grandparents for a fun afternoon making decorations and cards for Christmas.
We had a wonderful time and even enjoyed some Christmas music and mince pies!
Thank you to all those who came and thank you for your wonderful feedback, which we will share with you soon!
Some of the children from Class 1 went to Manchester City on November 16th to compete in some football games against children from other schools. They were amazing! We lost 1 game, drew 2 and won 2! Well done footballers!
This week, the children have completed lots of activities to commemorate 100 years since the end of the war. They have each made a poppy which can we seen on our 'We Remember' display along the Reception corridor. We have talked about and shared what we know about the war and some children were able to talk about their great grandparents who fought in the war.
Today, we held a special worship in the playground, with the rest of the school. We completed a 2 minute silence, remembering all those who died.
