By Royal Appointment...

A letter from a very important person has arrived for Miss Maiden's class over the Summer break. Look at the postmark on the photo below; can you guess who it's from? We can't wait until the children return on the 6th September to find out the contents!

PTA Summer Disco

Our PTA organised a fantastic Summer Disco with dancing, loom band crafts, tattoos, and a brilliant pop up photo booth! They managed to raise almost £300 for PTA funds and gave all of our families the opportunity for a great night out before the Summer holidays!

Prize Giving Assembly

We had a lovely end of year assembly to celebrate the achievements of our pupils. We also gave our Year 6 leavers a great send off with lovely individual photo books packed full of photos from their time with us. It was time to say goodbye to Madame Seale, our French teacher who is moving on to teach GCSE and A'Level French.

We've uploaded plenty of photos to our Facebook page for you to enjoy but here are a few for you to start you off; tissues at the ready!

Our last week of term started with a fun pizza party! All our children and staff enjoyed lovely pizza and garlic bread from Heaton Mersey based takeaway Mazzo Express.

We've got lots more treats to look forward to this week including our special assembly on Friday where we say goodbye to our Year 6 pupils and award certificates and prizes across the school.

Where does our food come from?

Children in Year 3 and 4 had an interesting school trip to Tesco's East Didsbury store on Wednesday. As part of Tesco's Eat Happy Project the children got to spend the morning in the store. They had a tour of the parts of the store they don't usually see (including the chillers and the freezers), they spent some time at the fish counter, they sampled cheese at the deli counter and they were delighted to get some tiger bread at the bakery!

Teacher Mr Brown commented "The children had a great time on the Farm to Fork trail and discovered lots about where their food comes from. They got to try lots of interesting flavours too including cheese with chilli and lime which was a surprise favourite with quite a few of them!".

Gearing up for a summer of reading

We had two special visitors to school today. First up was librarian Lynda Byrne from the Heatons Library who came to talk to all of the children about the Summer Reading Challenge.

Next up was local author Jo Welch who came to talk to junior pupils about her new book "The Einstein Code" and to discuss what makes a good story. Jo shared lots of interesting facts about her life too and answered numerous questions from our pupils.

The children are now looking forward to the summer holidays so they can start the reading challenge!

Buxton Residential

Our pupils in Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a fantastic residential in Buxton in June. Their two night stay at the YHA's Hartington Hall included a session entitled "Inspired by the Wild" where the children collected countryside materials and spent time studying the local environment. They had a camp fire, toasted marshmallows and did some team bonding activities.

They also did a great five mile hike up high hills and learnt techniques for coming down hills safely. It was then time for some climbing challenges and a relaxing game of chess with a giant set! The children had lots of fun, ate yummy food and really enjoyed themselves!
