As it sits awaiting collection, a big "THANK YOU!" to everyone who helped decorate our Book Bench for the trail in Manchester this summer.The men who came to varnish and weatherproof it on Friday commented on how colourful it was and how it would really stand out!
A team of ten Year 6 children enjoyed taking part in the Guy Hutchence Sports Memorial Event held in the Regional Sports Centre at the Etihad Stadium last Friday afternoon. The children competed as a team against other local schools in four main events. All schools were asked to follow the RESPECT (Resilience, Empathy, Selfaware, Positivity, Excellence, Communication, Team work ) agenda. Our children certainly did that and I was very proud of them and how well they performed in all the challenges.
As part of our non-uniform day today the children raised a total of £293 which has been donated to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
Many thanks to eveyrone for your support.

We had a lovely surprise when Mrs Patricia Atherton called in to school recently. She taught here from 1965 until 1973 and told me that she had the Year 6 class which was called Standard 4 then. Her Headteacher was called Stanley Critchley who I had the pleasure of meeting shortly before he was killed in a car accident. Mrs Atherton enjoyed her tour around school. She thought our school was lovely, extremely bright, airy and pleasing. She was very impressed with the provision for children of all abilities. If you or anyone you know used to work in our school, we will always be happy to welcome you back.
Many thanks to everyone for dressing up in fantastic Roald Dahl themed outfits as part of our World Book Day Celebrations. Here's a gallery of photos from the day.
Book Bench Competition.
Our Book Bench has arrived in school today as part of #readmanchester. We're having a whole school competition to decide on the design. Our children will come up with a design that reflects our love of books and reading. Favourite book, author, character, anything goes.
Our school council will help with the judging and the winning pupil will get to help with the decorating of the actual book bench.
The book bench will be located in Manchester in the summer as part of a reading trail before being given back to us to keep in September.
Many thanks for all the support for our McMillan Coffee morning, we raised a total of £500.
