Year 1 World Book Day

Wow! Year one looked amazing today in all their fantastic outfits to celebrate our love of books. We had a jam packed day with lots of “secret messages” from our missing coloured pencils! We also had a visit from Year 4 who read their stories to us.


Oh no! Year 1 and 2 have had a disaster this morning on World Book Day! We have received a secret letter to tell us our coloured pencils have quit! We are now busily writing letters to persuade them to come back!

Year 1 visit the Greater Manchester Fire Museum

We have had a great day learning about the fire service in the past and comparing it to the present. We learnt more about The Great Fire of London and even got to sit on two old fire engines!

iPads and Science in year 1!

We have worked really hard today in Science, thinking about which materials might build the strongest house. We have learnt some new skills on the iPads using Book Creator and have taken pictures and videos to add to our book!

PE Fun!

We had a lovely treat on Monday morning when some Year 9 pupils led some PE activities for us.

Poetry day with Paul Cookson

We had a great day today at school with a visit from the poet, Paul Cookson. He worked with Year 1 to Year 6 writing some great poems.
