OUR ANTI-BULLYING SUPERHEROES

All of our boys and girls looked absolutely fantastic today as they dressed up as superheroes to ensure that we would not tolerate any bullying in our school.

We are all Anti-Bullying Superheroes now!

INDIAN DANCE CELEBRATION FOR DIWALI

We have all been learning some Indian Bollywood style dancing at Urmston Infant School. Alice came and taught us all some fabulous moves to help in our celebration of Diwali. We all got to perform our dance at the end of the day for our friends.

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.

HARVEST ASSEMBLY

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.
