What a brilliant start to our Christmas Performances. Well done to both Reception classes for their fantastic Nativity. The children sang beautifully and it was a joy to watch. Thank you to all parents, friends and relatives who came to watch and who have supported the children in learning all of the songs!
Quarry Bank Mill
The children have had a great time in the Toy Workshop looking at old toys for both the rich and poor, looking at the differences from the past to modern day. They played Victorian school games and made a doll from a wooden spoon which would have been a poor Childs doll.
They then tended the gardens weeding and planting seeds.
Today our Year 6 children have taken part in the Crucial Crew Program which is a multi-agency safety event for children aged 10-11. The program provided children with life skills to help keep themselves, and others safe.
Hundreds of children take park from different primary schools, with the support from Manchester Police Transport Police, Salix homes and Urban Vision, children are presented with different scenarios, raising awareness of threats’ and dangers, taking part in role-play to learn how to deal with different situations.

As every year the children have walked down to the cenotaph to remember and honor those who have fought or sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
They have had 2 minutes silence to think and pay respect to those who have fallen.
The children in 2W have been learning all about Remembrance day and why it is important. They created some beautiful pieces of artwork and sang about those who sacrificed themselves for us, and why we should never forget them. It was a beautiful assembly – well done 2W!!
