Today, 6th March 2015, pupils throughout the school celebrated World Book Day. The children brought in books to swap, spent time writing a ‘whole-school story’ and enjoyed reading with pupils from different classes. Also, we had a special assembly where we learnt how to partake in an ‘extreme reading’ challenge (pictures to follow!). The video below features children from different year groups learning to read together.
Pupils in Year 5 have been studying the classic poem ‘The Highwayman’. They have produced some excellent work using this classic literature over the past few weeks. For one task, the children were asked to write an alternative ending to the poem in the style of the original. The work below has been jointly written by Isobel Cammish and Georgia Griffin. Well done!
This week pupils from Years 5 and 6 have ventured into Manchester to participate in the city’s Histories Festival. They visited the John Rylands Library and learnt about mapping in Manchester throughout the ages. Following this, the children experienced a ‘supporters throughout the years’ tour at The National Football Museum. It was a day packed with learning, history and most importantly, fun!
