JORDANNA BARTLETT VISITS SCHOOL
We had a visit from Jordanna Bartlett to school. Jordanna is part of the GB Paralympic Basketball team and inspired all of us with her stories about the Paralympics in Rio and her achievements with the team. We absolutely loved having a true sporting hero in our school and hope that she can come and visit us again.
ROALD DAHL DAY
We had a wonderful day at school celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday. Lots of our boys and girls brought in their favourite Roald Dahl book and some dressed up as their favourite character. All of our classes did lots of Roald Dahl related activities and we took part in Roald Dahl live event that was broadcast around the country.
What a magnificent Sports Day we had, both in EYFS and in Key Stage 1. The weather was kind and the boys and girls were absolutely wonderful. Thank you to all of our parents, grandparents and friends who made such a great day.

CHRISTMAS LIGHT SWITCH ON IN URMSTON
The boys and girls in our school choir braved the elements to give a wonderful performance at the switch on of the Urmston Christmas Lights. They sang absolutely beautifully and everyone who was there said how wonderful they were. Thank you Mrs Byrom, Mrs Strickland and to all the boys and girls.
We have finished our half term with two wonderful Harvest Festival celebrations. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Harvest collection and the Salvation Army will soon be receiving your very generous donations.
Our children in Class 5, Class 6, Class 7 and from our Nursery were absolutely fantastic in sharing their Harvest Festival celebrations with us. They told us the story of the Little Red Hen and sang us some wonderful Harvest songs. Well done boys and girls!
Our children in Class 1, Class 2, Class 3 and Class 4 told us all about the importance of water, both at Harvest time and throughout the year. They performed some beautiful poems, read some thoughtful prayers, sang some fantastic songs and even did a rain dance! (I think the rain dance worked!!!)
Thank you to all of our parents and friends who came along to support us.
WAKE AND SHAKE!
At the end of every lunchtime the children wake themselves up again ready for the afternoon.
They love the ‘Wake and Shake’ dances led by Mrs Hughes and Mrs Strickland.
