A BIG thank you to Miss Lamb for organising a wonderful sports day. She even managed to arrange for the sun to shine. Well done Miss Lamb. The children had a brilliant time. They enjoyed all the different activities they had the opportunity to try, especially the Commando Joe assault course. Also thank you to our parent supporters on the day.

Blue Planet Aquarium

Posted in General News | No Comments »

On Friday 12th July we went to the Blue Planet Aquarium. First we saw lots of different kinds of fish. Then we saw some lizards and frogs. Next we went to watch an underwater show. We saw divers feeding the stingrays and the fish. After that we had our lunch. After lunch we looked at the rays, the crabs and the octopus. Then we walked through the underwater tunnel to see the sharks! Finally we saw some brightly coloured fish that live in coral reefs and some jelly fish. We had a brilliant day! Thanks very much to our parent volunteers who helped the day to run smoothly.

Posted in Closure | Comments Off on Industrial Action 27th June – PARTIAL CLOSURE

As we indicated on the letter sent home on Friday 14th June, you will be aware that the NASUWT and the NUT have balloted their members for industrial action.

The school has received notification that the above trade unions which represent teachers within the school intend to take industrial action on Thursday 27th June 2013.

As staff within the school are members of these unions the school will be affected by industrial action.

We have undertaken a risk assessment for the school and have made the decision to partially close the school for pupils in the following classes:-

Class 1a, 2a, 3a, 4b, 5b & 6a.

Your child/ren should return to school on Friday 28th June 2013.

Please note that all siblings who’s classes are unaffected must attend school as normal otherwise they will be noted as an unauthorised absence.

Any absences either the day before or after the strike will also be noted as an unauthorised absence.

We apologise for any inconvenience this industrial action may cause you.

Balderstone Library Story Session Friday 7th June 2013 on PhotoPeach

On Friday 7th June we walked to Balderstone Library for a story session with Ray. We listened as Ray read some stories to us and then we had the chance to look at the books in the boxes and choose some to read ourselves. We joined the Library as a Class and got a special card. Then we were all allowed to choose a book to bring back to school. We are looking forward to listening to lots of new stories and Miss Buckley and Mrs Borkin are looking forward to reading them! When we have read them all we can return them to the Library. It was a brilliant afternoon!

Thanks very much to Ray Stearn who is the Young Persons Library Worker in Rochdale and the staff at Balderstone Library who made us feel very welcome.

Qasim's Goldfish

This week Qasim brought his goldfish into school. He takes care of him by making sure that his water is clean and gives him special fish food to eat. We enjoyed watching him swim around in his bowl.

A tortoise came to visit! on PhotoPeach

Thank you very much to James and his Mum who brought their tortoise into school for us to meet. His name is Harris. We asked lots of questions and found out some really interesting information about him. His favourite food is rocket salad and dandelion leaves. He likes to dig a cosy hole under bark and leaves to go to sleep in. He is also very nosy and enjoyed exploring in our classroom. We think that we might quite like a tortoise as our class pet!
