Jubilee Dance Workshops
 
Year 5 really enjoyed the 1950's dance workshop.  We channelled our inner Elvis for the warmup before learning a routine to Little Richard's Tutti Frutti song! 
 
Pyjamarama 2022 
 
This year, as part of our 'Reading for Pleasure' events, we have supported the Book Trust charity.  We were able to come to school in our pyjamas or a bright coloured top to raise funds so that Book Trust can make sure that no child misses out on their bedtime story.

Nursery Stay and Play 
 
The parents and children enjoyed a selection of activities at 'Stay and Play'. We iced biscuits and planted cress seeds. The parents said they had a good time playing and learning in Nursery with their children. 
 
We hatched ducklings 
 
In Nursery and Reception we hatched baby ducklings. The children were amazed to observe the ducklings hatch out of the egg and watch them grow for 2 weeks. We had lots of fun watching them swim in our water tray! The ducklings provided lots of knowledge and new vocabulary for the children. Please take a look at the photos and talk about them with your child at home. 
 
Our visit to the Farm 
 
Reception visited Smithills farm in Bolton.  At the farm, we petted baby animals in pets' corner and fed lots of different farm animals. We learnt the names of different animals young and found out all about where different food comes from like milk and ice cream. We had a tractor ride to go and feed the donkeys. The children had a fantastic visit, and their behaviour was exemplary. Please take a look at the photos from the visit and talk about them with your child at home.

Ancient Maya

On Thursday 13th January, Dr Diane Davies (the only Ancient Maya Archaeologist in the UK) came into school to work with Year 5.  She shared with us her experiences about what it is like to live and work in the Guatemalan rainforest.  She also taught us about these amazing people who lived over 1000 years ago.   They were great builders, artists, mathematicians, writers, astronomers, ballplayers and even chocolate-makers!  During the visit, we were able to look at Maya artefacts and created a Maya calendar.

 If you want to find out more about the Ancient Maya visit her website.

Number Day 2022
 
On Friday 11th February, all the children and staff from Nursery to Year 6, celebrated Number Day. They dressed up in clothes that represented numbers in their many forms, including dice, clocks, Arabic numerals, Roman numerals, and even French numbers! Well done for finding a MFL link! Some people had turned themselves into a walking Maths problem and one Year 3 boy turned himself into a Maths Book; inviting his friends to solve the questions on his top! We had lots of fun celebrating numbers and adding to our enjoyment and enthusiasm for Maths.
Water Park Visit January 2022- Wetherlam Group
 
Year 6 had an amazing week away at the Water Park Residential! It might have been a chilly week away but my goodness they took every opportunity available to them. They took part in many activities such as kayaking, canoeing, hiking, rock climbing and orienteering - some even braved the cold and swam in Lake Coniston! During the visit, the children worked together in their teams to support and encourage each other when trying new things, some of which appeared a little scary to begin with. They showed resilience and determination throughout the week and learnt to challenge themselves in various ways.
It's only when you try new things that you might discover something that you really enjoy doing!
