What a fantastic day, take a look at the spooky going’s-on at our Halloween Party, to view all pictures please use the tab at the top of the page for Halloween 2014.
To start our assembly the children have looked at the word harvest and what it means, the celebration of food, they have also looked at other words hidden within and shown that harvest is not only to celebrate the food we have but to share it with other especially those who are starving.
They have also sung Autumn days and some have shown their favorite foods, and other have read Harvest Poems. They have also looked at charities like Christian aid that support countries that often suffer from famine and drought, and have written their own diary entry if they were living like this.
They have also sang the harvest Samba, and finished with a pray giving thanks for what we receive.
Thanks to all who have sent in donations to make a fantastic harvest, this year we will be donation to the Windsor Drop in Centre.
Today 13th October, 2014, Year 4R went for an exciting trip to the Museum of Science and Industry – MOSI.
First they visited the Revolution of Manchester which showed the development of Science, technology and industry within the city. This was a hands on interactive session, looking and the industry and machinery that have made components for aircraft, machinery and more. Looking at the Air and space Gallery they have done experiment looking at the movement of air. The Electricity Gallery lets you look at electricity in the past, they look at houses in the past and how they have changed over the years. They have also looked at the Manchester Mills and the cotton Industry looking at the machinery used to weave.
They children have been learning about Electricity in school and have expended on this through MOSI

Today Year 3I have taken a step back in time, they have been learning about WWII, and have especially been looking at what it would be like to be an evacuee. They have recently been on a visit to Stockport Air Raid shelter, and have learnt and experiences what it was like for children to be evacuated from their Parents.
To start the assembly they have sang the White Cliffs of Dover, a popular song at that time. They have also looked at when war was declared and listened to Chamberlains speak announcing war with Germany.
The children have looked and thought what it would be like for children during the war how it would have felt to hear the sirens and bombs dropping, they have made their own word maps to tell us how this would have felt.
They have looked at what they would have packed in their suitcase when they were evacuated and also wrote letters home to family about the experience.
To finish they have sang We’ll meet again.
A great assembly and again thanks to all parents that attended, what a turn out!
3M Evacuee Trip
The children in 3M had a fabulous day at the Stockport Air Raid Shelters on 3rd October. Throughout the day the staff continuously reminded the children what it would have been like for evacuees of the Second World War.
After arriving and being greeted by the character Mrs Grundy and Mrs Hodgkinson, the children had the hands on experience of gas masks, fire bombs, soldier uniforms, cleaning and washing equipment, a 1940’s iron and many more World War Two artefacts. It was very exciting. We learned lots of Wartime songs and a poem about Hitler.
After lunch we walked to the Air Raid shelters and the children had the chance to experience complete darkness within the many tunnels. Some of the children were apprehensive but all gave it a go. Well done 3M! They were really intrigued as to how all those people would fit into the small spaces and particularly found the newspaper toilet roll and wire bunk beds fascinating.
On the way back some children asked if they were really going to a new family and were relieved to find out this wasn’t true. An educational and fun day had by all which I hope the children will remember!
Yr 4R Parent Assembly – Electricity.
The children have been learning about Electricity and have been telling parent all that they have learnt. They have completed experiments in class to see what is a conductor or insulator. They were also given a mission from James Bond which they completed and have shown their results.
