Wishing you all a happy and Holy Easter- we will see you back in school on the 24th April as we embark on our last term of this academic year.
Thank you again, parents and carers, for all your support with reading and homework. It is very much appreciated. Have a lovely half term break.

Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35)
As part of our Lenten journey Classes 11 and 12 organised a 'decorate the egg' competition. The proceeds will be donated to a charity of our choice. Thank you to all who entered! You've all been 'eggstremely' busy! All of the entries are 'eggcellent!' We will keep you posted on the amount we raised and of course who wins!
Thank you so much to all that attended assembly on Friday! I believe that the children were brilliant, I can't believe that I wasn't able to be there to see it!
I am so proud of you all, Class 11- well done!
Today we visited the cenotaph in Heywood to remember all of the men and women that died as a result of war.
You are in our thoughts and prayers. Take a moment to remember...........
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Today we had an author visit our school to 'kick start' our week of celebrating all things literary! His name is Christian Darkin and he writes a series of books called the 'Act Normal' series. He is also an illustrator and creates animations. He has even created animations for CBeebies. He talked to us about how he gets started on writing his books and he even shared an extract with us of a new book that he's just written. We were then lucky enough to take part in a workshop with Christian where he told us some of his writing secrets! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are now all ready to embark on our Literacy adventure next week! We are going to celebrate the centenary of Roald Dahl by studying one of his books. Our chosen text is 'The Minpins'. watch this space to see all of our exciting work that we do!
Happy Roald Dahl day!
Today we celebrated 100 years of Roald Dahl! We had lots of fun discussing our favourite books and completed activities based on the BFG (Roald Dahl's favourite book!) We even did a little bit of dream mixing just like the BFG!
