World War II Theme Day
12th February 2019
What a fantastic day! Thank you to all the children for really getting into the spirit of the day and dressing up. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day preparing the evacuees for their new homes.
We had lots of fun trying out the new scooters!
Thursday 10th January = Freddie Fit Day!
A great day learning about healthy foods and lots of energetic exercise!
We were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in the Adopt-a-player project run by the Halle orchestra. Over the course of a month, Andy Maher (French horn) and Rhiannon (violin) worked with the children to create a piece of music based on Wagner's The Mastersingers.
The project culminated in a concert at Moorside High School on the 26th November. They were superstars!
I could not be more proud of the children!
When Love is the way
During RE week, each class focused on the poem read out by Bishop Michael Curry at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. I am so proud of the iMovies that Year 6 made using the poem as inspiration. Very moving work!
Harvest Festival in Church 05.10.18
The children performed brilliantly in church. I think our final song was a hit with reception!
On Wednesday 3rd October, we visited Crucial Crew at Rochdale's football ground. The children took part in discussions with the police, transport police, Rochdale Housing and Link4life.
The view was amazing!
Our first topic will be all about the Titanic. In topic, we will be finding out the names of some of the crew members and passengers. We will also be exploring some of the many human errors that contributed to such a high loss of life in the early hours of 15th April 1912. Through our English work, we will be exploring lots of different genres and writing our own newspaper articles, letters from the ship and explanation texts.
The Children used iMovie to create trailers for a new blockbuster film about the Titanic.
