Shaw market debate

Children had a great time participating in a debate as part of learning about the British values – individual liberty and democracy. We discussed whether Shaw market should stay on the high street or move back to it’s old location behind the shops. There were strong arguments from both sides. After a heated debate, a vote was taken. The result was the majority wanted the market to stay on the high street. Well done everyone for taking part!

The Chill Factor

Everyone had lots of fun on our class visit to the Chill Factore. The morning was spent learning team building and survival skills before  venturing into the snow park where the class worked together to build an igloo and find hidden items beneath the snow. To finish the day, much fun was had travelling down the slopes in various ways


God and The Big Bang – November 2018

Year Six enjoyed a thoroughly thought-provoking day at Manchester Cathedral today: presentations by Dr Matt Pritchard (scientist and magician extraordinaire), Caleb Gordon (environmental ethics) and Hannah Malcolm (theologist and philosopher). Big questions about life and our planet…with a few answers. We enjoyed the chance to reflect and think BIG about our role in the world…

Mountain Research

Over half term, the children were given the task of researching mountains. I am so impressed at the hard work and effort the children put into their learning and the variety of ways their findings were presented. Here are just a few of the examples.Well done, Year 5!

Debbie Abrahams

On Friday 16th November,Debbie Abrahams, M.P for Saddleworth and Oldham East, came to speak to Year 5. She spoke on a range of issues such as how she became a member of parliament, the work this role involves and what a ‘democratic parliament’ means. In addition, she informed the class of the UNICEF ‘Outright’ campaign which promotes the rights of children all over the world, to clean air. Debbie’s talk prompted the class to consider a range of issues and ask many thoughtful questions.

Dear Year Six,

I hope you have plenty of rest this half term, but please remember to do some basic home learning inbetween snoozes and playing out:
