Imagine That!

On Tuesday 12th June, Reception went on their school trip to ‘Imagine That’ in Liverpool. During our visit, the children got to watch a thrilling science show with rockets, volcanoes and bubbles. They also attended three workshops where they made slime, bath bombs and fridge magnets! ‘Imagine That’ was filled with many other wonderful things for the children to explore such as a wind tunnel, giant electrical circuits and a giant bubble maker where the children could stand inside a ring and make a bubble that was potentially 6ft high! Unbelievabubble! In the ‘Imagination Village’, there was a bustling high street, which was brimming with ideas to inspire their imaginations. The children got to play in a Pizzeria, a Pet rescue centre, a Hair Salon, an American Diner, a Supermarket, a Car Wash, a Theatre, a Back stage costume area and a T.V Studio. What an amazing day was had by all! Thank you to all the parents that helped and made this trip possible.

Reception trip to Blackpool Zoo!

On Tuesday, both Reception classes visited Blackpool Zoo. The weather was wet, windy and wild! We were even nearly blown away as soon as we arrived! Despite this, both our lovely parent volunteers and all the children showed great resilience and didn’t let the weather spoil our day. We still got to see lions, tigers, giraffes, elephants and even a few cheeky monkeys!

Reception’s Tesco Trip!

Just before we broke up for half-term, both Reception classes went on a trip to Tesco. The children got to experience life behind the scenes in a supermarket and see what it is like to work in a variety of different roles.

The children got to sample delicious fresh fruit and vegetables from the store’s produce department and taste different types of bread rolls from the bakery.  We even got to meet a fishmonger who let us touch a fish!

A fun-filled and educational day was had by all. Thank you Tesco!

 

The Day We Met Royalty…

Last Friday, on 14th October 2016, a group of our KS2 pupils ventured into Manchester to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to our city. They were fortunate enough to get to the front of the crowd;the rest is history! Enjoy reliving this unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience which our pupils were so grateful to receive. Thank you to Miss Lavelle, Miss McNamara and Mrs Aldred for taking the pupils…

 

Tesco’s ‘Farm to Fork’ Trail

Last week both Reception classes went on a trip to Tesco as part of their ‘People at work’ topic.  The children got to experience life behind the scenes in a supermarket and see what it is like to work in a variety of different roles.

The children got to sample delicious fresh fruit and vegetables from the store’s Produce department, make their own bread rolls and taste scrumptious cookies in the bakery.  We even got to meet a fishmonger who showed us how to gut a fish!

A fun-filled and educational day was had by all. Thank you Tesco!

 

Chinese New Year! 🎉🏮🎊🇨🇳👘

The whole school had an absolute ball celebrating Chinese New Year! Calligraphy, Chinese paper folding, lantern making and traditional lion dancing were just some of the excellent activities taking place around the school. A huge thank you to all the parents who supported the day; it was clear a huge effort had been made judging by the fantastic outfits the children arrived to school in. A whole school Lion Dance performance, courtesy of the Manchester Chinese Cultural Centre, left children completely mesmorised; some of our staff and children also had the opportunity to take part in it too. Have a peek at some of the highlights in the video below.
