Castleshaw

Our Year 1 and 2 classes went on day trips to Castleshaw Activity Centre this week where they learned all about habitats. They found out about the local wildlife, made hedgehog houses, looked at badger setts and went pond dipping.

 

Year 4

Our Year 4 class had a Norman Day yesterday. They made swords, shields and bread in preparation for the Battle of 1066!



Year 3

Our Year 3 class went to a ’Farm to Fork’ workshop at Tesco this week. They went on a healthy eating trail to identify different foods, looked at the sugar content of cereals, they made their own muesli and then tasted lots of different types of healthy foods!

 

Play in a day

Our children who are new to English enjoyed a special workshop today from Oldham Coliseum. They then gave a special performance to their parents and the rest of the school this afternoon. Well done everyone!

Goodbye Miss Kenny!

Miss Kenny is leaving us today to start a new job in a school closer to home. Miss Kenny is a popular member of staff and is loved by all the children so she will be sorely missed. I’m sure you would all like to join us in wishing her the best of luck and thank her for all of her hard work over the past five years.
