Year 6 are halfway through their SATs - and Cafe Andrea is doing a roaring trade every morning. Thanks to support from Andrea and Y2K the children have an enjoyable, relaxing and nutritious start to the day. It's MATHS today and tomorrow then it's all over and the children can smile again!

Music to my ears!

I love Tuesdays! Mr Lee our Music Teacher is in all day and the school is filled with music and song all day long. I spotted Year 2 in the hall this afternoon - COMPOSING and playing their own tunes.....very impressive!

Dig for Victory!

In the on-going battle to improve our school grounds the support of Dad's (or Mum's) Army  is vital. Today thanks are due to Jimmy Seggi who has been busy all morning planting some bushes in the top yard and helping to bring some life and colour to the environment. It's also improved the view from…

Top Table

I love Fridays! Not only does it signal the start of the weekend but I get to eat lunch with the previous week's Star Award winners on the Top Table. Here they are about to enjoy Friday lunch - despite being 'photo-bombed' by Andrea! (We didn't mind really because lunch was, as usual, delicious).…

Sketching with Year 2

Just spent a great afternoon with Year 2. Writing poems and sketching - a really enjoyable way to develop imaginations and drawing skills - and some very pleasing results. (Even though the highlight of the afternoon was the military helicopter that 'buzzed' the playground while we were out…

St George's Day

It's been a VERY good day! We started with an assembly about St George, enjoyed some typical (I wish) English weather before welcoming Mr Tony Birch (Assistant Director for Education and Learning) for a visit to the school. As always, the children were a credit to the school (and their parents)…

Links with Kearsley Academy

Over recent years we have forged very strong links with Kearsley Academy. We are currently sending some of our Year 6 pupils on 'Brainiacs' sessions where the children receive additional coaching in English and mathematics (just in time for SATs!). Our English Brainiacs are pictured here waiting…

Rugby and Dance Clubs

What a great day! When all the reading, writing and 'rithmetic had finished we STILL had time for lots of our children to sharpen up their rugby skills on the field and to develop their dance moves in the hall - courtesy of Bolton Rugby Union Club and Dancing Feet. Add to that the fact that…

Welcome to Summer!

As I walked down the school path this morning (which is looking great thanks to the efforts of Mr Williams) it felt good to be back. No, honestly - it did! We've a very busy term ahead - including SATs for Year 2 and Year 6.  The children looked really smart (and surprisingly alert) in this…

There's a kind of hush....

.....all over the school. After a really enjoyable last day of term - from this morning's gymnastics presentation assembly to this afternoon's Easter Service during which the church was filled with song - the classrooms are now empty and the playgrounds are silent. I always tell the children that…

Easter (NOT Christmas) Assembly

This morning we were treated to a wonderful Key Stage 1 assembly reminding us of the true meaning of Easter (not Christmas as the Head Teacher said in an embarrassing slip of the tongue). The children and staff have worked really hard over the last few days and the result was a really entertaining…

An Afternoon with Year 2

Spent a very enjoyable afternoon with Year 2 - seen here posing in front of their wonderful Sunflower Display in the hall. They worked hard and showed some very good creative writing skills. I can't always get into the classroom as much as I'd like to but I always enjoy it when I do. Thank you…
