Spr 2 2018
Reception Children Working Hard
Reception have been busy - just like 'The Little Red Hen'.
They have been investigating grains of wheat and ground wheat. They enjoyed using a pestle and mortar to grind the grains of wheat, even though it was pretty tricky!
They have also sampled a variety of breads and talked about the similarities and differences in their taste and texture.
Wilmslow Music Festival
Yet again, the children of Year 3, 4 and 5 did an outstanding job singing, dancing and performing at the Wilmslow Music Festival last night.
In front of a packed audience, they performed a lively singing and dancing version of "The Floral Dance" which was extremely well received.
Mr Perry commented afterwards that our children's performance was superb and captured the true essence of a primary school music event - music, dance, perfomance, fun, excellence and everyone having the opportunity to take part.
A great success, enjoyed by all!
Infant Big Sing
A brilliant performance yet again from our KS1 children!
This afternoon the Y1 and Y2 children went to the Wilmslow Leisure Centre where they joined five other schools to participate in the Big Sing which was, this year, given a folk song theme.
Our children did us proud!!! They sang loudly and clearly, especially for our solo performance of Siyahamb'e - a Zulu folk song.
Well done to Harry and Libby who announced our performance in front of hundreds of parents too!
Year 3 on The Edge
Having prebooked some amazing dry weather and sunshine, Year 3 set out on their walk up to the Edge!
They followed their maps and counted the 97 or was it 105 steps up the side of the Edge?
What a great view they had from the top as they sat and ate their well deserved snacks and drinks.
They managed to return in time for lunch tired but happy.
' Best day of my life!' was the quote.
Year 2 Writers
Year 2 have written a character description of an 'Earthlet'.
What's an Earthlet? An Earthlet is a baby who lives on planet Earth!
The children have not only written effectively and coherently but they have included; co-ordination and subordination, noun phrases, exclamation marks, suffixes, beautifully neat handwriting as well as super spellings.
Year 2 hope you enjoy reading them.
The Y5 & 6 are 'trying' their hand at Tri Golf in their Wednesday afternoon PE lessons this half term.
Matthew Turnock, a golf professional from Mottram Hall, is helping them to develop their fundamental movement skills. They will be learning the different types of shots used and become familiar with how to play the game. So far, they have taken part in a number of activities that enabled them to practise their putting and chipping skills.
Matthew will also be giving the children information about the Golf open day coming up in April at Mottram Hall and the sessions that they run for children.
Who knows, there might be a budding Rory McIIroy in our school!
Netball League Night - March 2018
The netball team played the 4th round of league games on Wednesday in a mixture of sunshine and hail! But despite the mixed weather the team won 2 and lost 2, their best result to date. They made an excellent start beating Gorsey Bank 6-2. The second game against Ashdene was closer than the 0-6 score line suggests. The girls played a great game against Wilmslow Academy, winning 4-1. In the final game against Lacey Green the team lost 3-0, but again the game was far more even than the result suggests. All the girls played extremely well, with improved shooting skills, stronger passing and sharp defending.
Well done everyone.
Year 2 enjoyed World Book Day
Y2 study ‘books from Africa’ as part of their geography topic on World Book Day.
World Book Day
The snow didn't stop the children enjoying World book Day.
Mr Perry dressed as Percy the Park Keeper and read the story 'Percy's Bumpy Ride' to the whole school at the start the day. The children followed the story on the big screen.
The day was all about celebrating the children's favourite stories and encouraging each other to read a new book.
The children's outfits looked brilliant too. Thanks to everyone for your support.
