Changes in September

Thank you again for your support as we plan for a new phase in September.

I have been asked by the Local Authority to support another Crumpsall school, as their Headteacher in September. This means (temporarily) I will become Interim Executive Headteacher of that school and Bowker Vale, and split my time between both. You might not see me as much as usual, but Mrs Griffin (who will temporarily become Head of School at Bowker Vale) and our Senior Leadership Team (- Mrs Bird, Miss Allely, Miss Dunleavy, Mrs Kershaw and Miss Carling) will still be here to support you and your families. 
Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Jacques

Viking Gods and Goddesses

This week, in our history lessons, we are finding out about Viking gods and goddesses.

Have a look at the BBC Teach website to see what you can find out.

Can you then create your own Viking god or goddess? Have a look at some other children’s designs…

Goodbye Year 6!

Good morning everyone on what would have been the week we said “Goodbye and Good Luck!” to our Year 6 children. This is the song we would have been singing in assembly but unfortunately due to copyright issues I can only put a snippet on. I hope you enjoy it!

Mrs Pendleton and I had talked about teaching you this next song to sing at your Leavers Assembly. It is called ‘For Good’ and is from the musical ‘Wicked’. I had not heard the song before but it is amazing. The words are beautiful and very moving and the tune is so uplifting.( I must confess to feeling a little teary when I hear it!)

This is for all of you in Year 6! Goodbye and Good Luck everyone from all of us at Bowker Vale! (I will miss your lovely voices in Singing Assembly!!!)

Good Morning SSC Class

Hello everyone! Wow, it is the last week of the Summer term already and what a busy one we have had. We’re so pleased with how hard everyone has worked this term and how the whole SSC team have tried their best to look after themselves and everybody else.

Today’s learning:



During our English lesson we are going to be thinking about what we can remember about the capital cities and continents of the world. Read the statements below, have I told you a fact or a fib?


During our maths lesson today we are going to be completing all our green pen challenges. How many of your multiplication facts do you now know? Do you know the facts for all twelve times tables?


We really hope that is isn’t going to rain this afternoon as we haven’t been able to play ‘Run the Gauntlet’ for a little while. If it does rain we will complete a Joe Wicks workout indoors. Could you complete your own workout at home?

Have a great day

The SSC Team
