On Wednesday at the swimming gala, we went up against four schools. The winning school would win a trophy. I took park in the front crawl race and I came 2nd. I won this fantastic medal which I will be wearing with pride.

Fruit Kebabs

Yesterday we had a brilliant time making Tropical Fruit Kebabs.  We used tropical fruit because we linked it to our topic work all about the Amazon Rainforest.  First we tasted some fruit, then we designed our own kebab, then we made our kebab and finally we evaluated it.  What a fantastic afternoon we had!

Linking project

On Thursday 23rd March our penpals came to visit us from Horton Mill School.  We had a brilliant day.  We did Zumba in the morning, we had a lovely packed lunch together and we played very nicely together outside.  In the afternoon two special visitors came in to talk to us about the similarities between the religions of Christianity and Islam. After that we played some circle games and then it was time for Horton Mill to go back to their school.  What a fantastic day we all had!  We hope that we will meet our friends again sometime.

Homelearning projects

Mrs Allen and Mrs Kindon are so proud of year 1 and their home learning projects featuring their gardens. They have worked ever so hard and the results are amazing! All the projects have added so much to our topic work. Thank you to all of our families who participated with their Y1 children.

World Book day

Today everyone dressed up as a character from a book by their class author. We had an assembly so every class could parade around the hall and show off their costumes. Some of the teachers told the children their favourite picture book. Mrs Phillips chose How To Live Forever by Colin Thompson. Mrs Grayson chose Albert le blanc by Nick Butterworth. Mrs Shaw chose Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. Mr Bottomly chose Tiddler which also by Julia Donaldson. I think it was good today because I got to wear my own clothes and I wore a rugby shirt and shorts because my dad played rugby for Salford Reds and I went to all the matches.

World Book Day

Today year 6 have dressed up as their ancestors from many years ago. All year 6 dressed up as their great granddads or great grandmas or any other ancestors. A lot of people dressed up as footballers. Some people dressed up as coal miners and some other people dressed up as army people. All of year 6 told the class who they were dressed up as and why. We really enjoyed dressing up as our ancestors because it was fun to not wear our uniform.
