Those were the days…

Those were the days… Y5/6 spent a day at Wilderspin in Barton where they recreated what it was like to be a child at school in Victorian times. The children experienced class object lessons, playground drill, but had chance for some fun and games too! Getting into the spirit of the time, the children were divided into boys and girls, checked for clean fingernails, forced (if necessary) to sit up straight and writing left handed was not an option! For those who failed to conform, there was the appearance of the Dunce’s Cap and the cane! Then there was the

Prayer Spaces

A ‘Special Place’ To end a busy Term 1, we wanted to give our children the chance to stop for a moment and reflect on the things they care about or are concerning them. Winnie-the-Pooh had a ‘Thoughtful Spot’ to go to and we turned the Music Room into a ‘Prayer Space’ for the week. All of our children had the opportunity to explore any or all of the eight activities designed to help them ‘Be Still’. Many wrote a ‘Thank You’ on a leaf for our ‘Friendship Tree’ and all contributed to a giant ‘Friendship Flower’. Some used the

A house for Mr Mole!

Who built the best house for Mr Mole? Foundation Stage had a competition in the wooded area to see who could build the best house for Mr Mole. The children had to work in teams and could only use natural objects. The people of the USA might be choosing who should live in the White House, but we asked parents to decide which was the best Mole House for Mr Mole by liking their favourite on our Facebook page. Which do you think is best?

Roald Dahl Phizz-Whizzing Day!

Roald Dahl Phizz-Whizzing Day! To celebrate what would have been Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday, the children (and staff) had a whoopsy-splunkers day either dressing up as characters (with some winning his books as prizes!), making ‘Dream Catchers’, inventing new BFG words or simply learning all about the stories found in his wonderful books. To end the day, Y5/Y6 performed some of Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’ to the rest of the school and beautifully sang ‘Pure Imagination’ from the film version of ‘Charlie & the Chocolate Factory’. Can you name the books from the photos? A really whoopsy-wiffling day!

Gold Again!

Gold Again! It has been a ‘Golden Summer’ for Team GB at the Rio Olympics & Paralympics with a record number of medals won. We think PE and physical development is a really important part of school, not only for the health benefits, but for raising self esteem, developing teamwork, building confidence and a whole range of life skills which children can use out of school and into the future. We are delighted to announce that, for the third year running, we have been awarded the ‘School Games Gold Award’ for primary sport! This is a hard award to achieve

Lacey Gardens + St. Michael’s = Fun Maths!

Lacey Gardens + St. Michael’s = Fun Maths! Mr Sandy brought his Year 6 Class from Lacey Gardens to take part in a Maths Challenge activity with our own Y6s this morning. The children tried to solve a range of maths tasks together including six digit place value yahtzee, word problems and shape. Best of all, the children enjoyed making new friends and all are looking forward to us visiting Lacey Gardens in the near future. Good work!

St. Michael’s Day

Year 1 remember St. Michael’s Day Each 29th September we try to mark our Saints Day in some way. This year we took all of Year 1 up to St Michael’s Church for a ‘Treasure Trail’ exploring the inside and outside of the building. The children were delighted to find images of sheep, peacock feathers, hosts of angels and even two lions in the beautiful stained-glass windows. Perhaps most exciting of all was finding a trap-door that led under the eastern end of the church and the thought what might be found if we went down into it!
