Year 6 visit to Blackpool Zoo

Date: 25th Jun 2019 @ 5:08pm

We have done a lot of fun thing this year but today was a really fabulous day out. We visited Blackpool Zoo as part of our science topic: "Evolution and Adaptation."  Daniel said it was, "The best day ever!" We even managed to dodge the rain as we hung out with the monkeys, giraffes and lions and penguins. Have a look at our video to see how much fun we had.

Today we had a wonderful science morning with Mrs Ranyard (Y6) who was very impressed with our scientific knowledge and understanding of how plants grow. We spent some time outside observing lots of the different plants, flowers and trees that grow in our playground. We had lots of fun observing and sketching leaves and flowers as well as naming and measuring the plants we found. WE ARE SUPER SCENTISTS!

Nursery Challenges

Date: 16th Jun 2019 @ 9:01pm

Nursery challenges happen each week and children have to complete 3 challenges in different areas oer the week. This week children had a painting, writing and ICT challenge. At the end of the week the children with 3 buttons had a fantastic treat after finishing the challenges. They got to play with some superhero figures borrowed from Mrs Iqbal's house and some chose the unicorn and fairy colouring sheets. I wonder what the challenges will be next week...? 

Spinderella's and Tiddler's Dinosaur Eggs have hatched!!!

Date: 16th Jun 2019 @ 8:54pm

Last week we discovered some Dinosaur Eggs in our classroom. We put the eggs in water and waited until they hatched. At first there was a small crack but slowly the crack got bigger until we could see the dinosaurs. Tiddler's dinosaur was green and Spinderella's was orange and yellow. From next week each dinosaur will sit with someone at group time for the day and be responsible for it. How exciting!! 

Healthy Lifestyles Day

Date: 16th Jun 2019 @ 8:46pm

On Friday 14th June we joined in with 'Healthy Lifestyles Day' in Nursery. In the morning we had a Nutritionist called Jack who came from Manchester Fayre and talked about healthy foods and the Eatwell Plate. He then asked Mrs Iqbal to help him make some 'Homous.' We tried it with rice cakes, sugar snap peas and carrots. In the afternoon we had a visit from a dental hygienist who talked about why it is important to clean our teeth every morning and evening. She showed us some photos that had good and bad teeth and shared some great advice; brush your teeth twice a day, go to the dentist for a regular check up and no sugary foods before your tea! 

Haunted House stories

"Saina's story was really scary and spooky, I could really see feel how scared her character's were." Lora

"Thomas and Daim had brilliant description mixed in with dialogue and action." Paige 

"Daim's character's jumped off the page" Brandon




Back to school

Date: 7th Jun 2019 @ 5:07pm

Can you believe we have been back in school a week???????? This year is flying by so quickly. Summer 2 is one of my favourite times of the school year as I get to read all about the fantastic things the children have been learning.  The teachers are busy writing the children's end of year reports which will be sent home on Friday 19th July.

The children have had class photographs taken this week. We have also had some new photographs taken for the school website, we will let you know when they are on the website.

Year 4 have been practicing hard for the multiplication tables check which they will take this month.

I can't wait till next week when I can see all the amazing pieces of holiday homework, I wonder what fantastic creations the children will come up with this time!

Year four have been learning about factors.

Spanish Cooking!

Date: 3rd Jun 2019 @ 1:29pm

To launch our new topic for this half term, "Why is Spain such a popular tourist destination?", we have been busy cooking a classic Spanish dish - patatas bravas! 

We all helped make the sauce to go alongside the potatoes, and (almost) all of us thought it was absolutely delicious!

Check out the photos to see what we got up to!

Goodbye Butterflies!

Date: 31st May 2019 @ 10:31am

During this half term we were delivered some tiny caterpillars. We looked after the caterpillars and watched them turn in to cocoons and then in to beautiful butterflies. We said goodbye to them and let them free in the garden. 


Date: 22nd May 2019 @ 2:07pm


We set the year 6 children a series of maths challenges. They needed to solve the maths clues in teams that were hidden around the room. The clues led them to a 10 digit code that would enable them to escape the room! Thankfully some teams managed this before breaktime! Yikes! Well done Violet, Enoch and Ellie.

Lots of fun - well done Year 6!


How did the blossom become an apple?

Date: 17th May 2019 @ 4:15pm

Well done Year 6!

The determination and resilience you have shown this week during your SATs has been remarkable. You should be very proud of yourselves!

Have a good  rest this weekend and we'll see you all on Monday.

Trying Japanese Sweets!

Date: 3rd May 2019 @ 2:24pm

Miss wendt spent some of the Easter holidays in her favourite place - Japan! As a treat for 5HC she brought back some 'unusual flavoured Kit Kats' to try. 

Would you eat a green tea Kit Kat? Or a strawberry cheesecake one? What about a tomato flavoured one?!

Is there anything inside a flower?

Date: 3rd May 2019 @ 2:13pm

How many times have you wondered what the inside of a flower looks like? 5HC have! They've been looking very closely at the parts of plants and flowers, and were amazed to learn that plants can be male, female or both!

Have a look at the images below to see our investigations!

Amazing Maths Games!

Date: 3rd May 2019 @ 2:01pm

Year 5 were set a challenge - they had to invent a game to help other children develop their knowledge of shapes. As you can see from the images there were lots of brilliant examples!

4NS came in to test the games - and they thought they were fabulous!


Date: 2nd May 2019 @ 5:03pm

We would just like to say a huge big thank you to all the parents that came in to school this morning to help us create a minibeast. We understand that it's not always possible for you to come if you have to go to work or you have an appointment, but we love it when you can share in our learning. 

Here are lots and lots of photos so you can look at and enjoy the experience we had...
