WHAT A LOT OF FUN WE HAD ON VICTORIAN DRESS UP DAY
G r a n d p a r e n t s a f t e r n o o n
We found out lots of interesting facts about when our grandparents were little, we asked lots of questions and found out how it is different to today. Can you believe there was NO colour TV. laptop, or playstation! The toilet was outside in a hut and they didn't get to play with any toys at school! These are just a few things we found out... Thank you to all who came today.
The singathon was a huge success today..A MASSIVE thank you to all who have donated.

Family Learning Week-April 2016
The week was based around the story of Stanley's Stick, a story about a boy who carries a stick everywhere and uses his imagination to change his stick into all sorts of wonderful things. He starts his story at Stockport train station and ends up in Blackpool. The children collected sticks and used them in all sorts of creative ways. We also used the story to get creative with our writing. Every Year goup got involved from Nursery to Year 2. Take a peek at the photo's below. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE PARENTS WHO WERE ABLE TO HELP OUT, IT WAS GREAT TO HAVE YOU IN SCHOOL WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT TOO
Friday: 'The Den Experiment' with Chris
We started the day with an assembly led by Chris from The Den Experiment. Parents, children and teachers together. Then we headed off to our classes, we were all in different classes for the day, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 together. We got into teams and designed and made flags. Next we made small models of our dens using plasticine and sticks. After that we went outside and started to build our dens. It was very tricky! Miss Cowgill's Dens kept falling down! Finally we covered the dens to make them waterproof and we had snacks inside our dens.
Family Learning Week - Lots of fun with sticks!
Creative Writing Day during F.L.Week
We all took it turns to tell our own version of Stanley's Story. For example we had 'Oscar's Stick' where Oscar went exploring the beach and came a cross a stick that turned into a Fishing Rod. He caught a huge whale with it! After we told our story we thought what we would need to write very carefully. We said each sentence out loud and listened for the sounds we could hear in each of the words. We had to remember SO much, such as finger spaces, full stops, which letters make which sounds and using correct letter formation which is so important! We were very proud of our work and really enjoyed doing it. WE ALL LOVE TO WRITE!!

Watch Shuja, Can you say which number comes BEFORE or AFTER? what does before mean?
before and after? How well do you know your number line to 10?
Before Shuja answered all the 'after' and 'before' questions Shuja ordered the pieces of numicon and counted out the correct number of pegs. He then found the correct numerals and ordered those to make a number line from 1 to 10.
