Year 4 Invade Chester

On Thursday 28th March we went on a Roman experience day at Chester. It was an amazing trip and everybody had a lovely time. We would like to thank Mrs Cope for everything she does for us, because every time we go on a trip she comes with us and when we go swimming she comes with us. When we were having a snack in the Roman gardens she brought us cakes and they were so tasty! The weather was perfect so we didn’t have to wear our coats. We also went to a huge Roman museum where we sang the Roman numerals song that we sang in our assembly. Our tour guide loved it and she tried to join in. We had a bit of a laugh at the amphitheater because Miss Davies fought Mrs Baker! They were slapping each other with foam sticks. It was so funny. Anyway, now it is the end of the trip and I would love to go again. We learned so much and most of all it was fun!

 

On the 28th March 2019, Year 4 went on a Roman Experience in Chester, we all had a wonderful day. I would like to thank 4 people: Mrs Baker, Mrs Buckley, Miss Davies for letting us go on the trip and Mrs Cope for making cakes that we ate in the gardens for Joe’s birthday. Whilst we were in the museum, we sang our Roman Numerals song to our tour guide. When we were marching around Chester a man said “Free icecream at Nandos!” and I nearly walked in. We were so loud we were shouting “SIN SIN SIN DEC SIN!” I felt sorry for a man on his phone. It was wonderful and we all loved it.

Brexit Update

We shall be closed for European Elections on 23rd May 2019. Possibly.

Extract from email @public.govdelivery.com:

The following note is forwarded to you on behalf of Returning Officers in the District and Borough Councils:

You will have seen on the news that there is a possibility that European Parliamentary Elections may have to be held in the UK on Thursday 23 May 2019.

It is unlikely that anything will be known for certain until around 10 – 12 April by which time schools will be closed for Easter.

As part of contingency planning for this event, over the next two weeks, Elections Officers will be contacting any schools used for polling regarding their possible polling station requirements. 

Returning Officers appreciate that the uncertainty is not helpful but unfortunately this is not within their control.

Many thanks for your assistance.

John Henderson – Chief Executive

Y3 & Y4 Football

Well done to our Y3/4 children who competed this week at Cheadle – a very respectable score.

 

As always, I will always do my best to speak to you about any concerns you may have on the day so please feel free to approach me, either on the playground or book an appointment if you prefer.

Dear Parents/Carers

As part of our Easter Celebrations we thought it would be fun to hold both an Easter Hat competition and Design an Egg competition.

All children are invited to either decorate a hat or a hard-boiled egg.  Hats can be a traditional bonnet or maybe a baseball cap or indeed decorating an old favourite dressing up hat, the choice is endless!  Eggs can be decorated as they wish, patterns, maybe a character or adding it to a background scene!  There are many ideas on websites so enjoy taking a look.

All decorated hats and eggs need to be brought into school on Wednesday 10th April when they will be judged by members of the PTFA.  Prizes will be given to the best in each class.

Children will parade their hats and display their eggs in the school hall and Parents/Carers are invited to join us.  Nursery children will show theirs at 2pm and the rest of the school at 2.30pm.  It is sure to be an egg-spectacular!

 

We very much look forward to seeing all the creations.

Music Tuition via Entrust (Violin, Flute/Clarinet, Guitar)

We are currently looking at our provision for 2019/2020. We have always put on music tuition as part of the service and then charged parents slightly less as we believe in promoting musical talent.

However – this is becoming increasingly hard to justify. Over the years numbers taking up this offer have fallen whilst charges have continued to go up. This is not sustainable at a time when so many schools are laying off staff to make ends meet.

There is a very good chance that, unless we get more children taking classes, we will have to drop this service at the end of this year. We will provide more information about the service is coming weeks in the hope that we can at least double the number of children who take part.

Rocksteady and Mrs Mair’s piano are not included in this as membership is quite strong for these tutors.

 

Looking Back

Y5 Assembly

I think it is wonderful to find out so much about our locality and how important the region was to the UK. Thank you so much to Mrs Watkinson and the class for telling me lots I didn’t know. Brilliant.

Y4 Trip

Year 4 were their superb selves this week at Chester. Bene factum!

Year 3 Exploding Volcanoes

To end their topic on Volcanoes, Year 3 took part in scientific experiments involving imitating a volcanic eruption. They had two different methods they were going to try to see which one created the best eruption. The first method used Coca Cola and Mentos, while the second method used bicarbonate of soda, red food colouring and vinegar. Both methods worked very well – the volcanoes erupted once the different elements were mixed together.

The children absolutely loved taking part in the experiment and watching the outcome.

We can not wait to see what you do next Year 3!

 

Sports for Schools

What a thoroughly enjoyable morning the children had working up a sweat completing the fitness circuit led by olympic athletes, Joe Roebuck and Amy Smith. They were very inspiring and the children very clearly put in a lot of work with their sponsorship fundraising. The children have managed to raise a grand total of £849 for sports and playground equipment for our school! Well done to you all, we are very impressed and proud of your hard work!

More information will be available soon in regards to the sponsorship reward assembly.
