2C Super Writers

Wow year two. You amazed 6D this afternoon with your fantastic diary entries. As readers, we could really picture in our minds what had happened during Lila’s day due to your use of expanded noun phrases.

Attendance

Attendance this week was 94.2% – quite far below our target of 96%.

There were 137 late arrivals to school, in part due to an issue on the roads on Tuesday.

News Blog 15.11.19

This week has been Anti-Bullying week, the theme has been ‘Change Starts With Us’ and children have  be thinking about what they can do to bring about change where it is needed, in school and in the world.

It was also ‘Remembrance’ day on Monday and Yr6 and the school council represented the school magnificently at our annual Remembrance Day gathering in Blackley forest. Children and members of the local community were treated to poems from Year 6 and cakes from the school council. A wonderful morning and fantastic contribution from everyone.

Thank you for the donations to Children in Need today. We’ll let you know the total on here as soon as it is finalised!

We have quite a few non-uniform days coming up this term where we ask for donations to support charities or for our school fund. Thank you if you can support these and if you feel you can’t there is no pressure, it is all voluntary.

Fri 22 Nov – non-uniform for a chocolate donation for our Christmas Fair

Fri 29 Nov – wear blue and white for St Andrew’s Day

Fri 6th Dec – non-uniform for cakes donations (EYFS and KS1) and anything in a bottle (KS2) for our                                 Christmas Fair

Finally, you may have noticed our new painted markings on the school drive and in the car park. For the safety of our children, please DO NOT park on any yellow lines or in the yellow box in front of the gate. In the bad weather more and more people are ‘nipping down’ to drop off and pick up, but it is not safe to do so and not permitted. You will be asked to move on if you are seen.

Well Done Buddy

Buddy goes to his own special doggy after-school club! It is an agility class. This is where dogs learn to listen to their handler to follow instructions to go as fast as they can around an agility course. The dogs have to jump hurdles, climb up and over an ‘A’ frame, balance and run through tunnels.

Yesterday was a competition at the class. There were 9 dogs taking part and Buddy came 2nd!

We are all really proud of him!

Well done Buddy!

4M Green Screen

4M transported themselves back in time using DoInk. This app introduces children to green screen which is a device used in many films such as Avengers Assemble and Captain America. Using their own images, the children filmed short stories and reports in a Roman setting.

Council take charge of the bird hide

This week Dot Keller, chairman of the Friends of Blackley forest, kindly took the school council to see a bird hide that the councillors will be taking charge of. As you can see from our pictures, there is a lot of hard work to be done to reinvigorate this fabulous area of the forest. It is a wonderful spot for people to stop, enjoy and observe the local wildlife. Our councillors are more than to ready to roll up their sleeves and return this bird hide to its former glory. We’ll keep you posted on our progress!

4M Thursday PE with Conor

This term we have had Connor leading our PE sessions. Although it is our last lesson on a Thursday afternoon, the children showed no signs of fatigue! They were full of energy and couldn’t wait to get started! Our first lesson was all about capture and evasion games. Well done 4M!

4M peer massage

Peer massage is used successfully in our school. It promotes positive interactions between pupils and is used to help reduce anxiety and enhance emotional and physical well-being. It is a simple routine which is used across school and can also be enjoyed at home.
