All the Fun of the FairSummer Fair Sumos
This year’s Summer Fair was packed with fun; the stalls and refreshments were excellent and the inflatable obstacle course was a great bouncy challenge. We also had entertainment from a local band (Valley Sounds), an exciting football competition (courtesy of Shooting Stars Football Academy), a wellie-throwing competition, a sumo wrestling show-down and a chicken called Cinderella!
What more could you ask for?
Thanks to the Friends Association for organising everything so brilliantly and to the whole school community for your wonderful support!

Danger - Men at Work!Fathers Day Den Building
Well done to all the dads and grandads for joining in with our Reception class and putting on an excellent display of den building  for Fathers Day! After all their exertions the dads came to share in our celebration assembly. It was great fun and the children loved having their dads and grandads with them at school!
The dad’s loved it too - here is some of their feedback - ‘Den building was great fun’; ‘It was great to see my child having so much fun with friends’; ‘Assembly was beautiful and spending time with my grandson was exceptional’; ‘4 finger Kit Kats next time please!’

Sporting Action Sports Day
Everyone had a great time at this year’s Sports Day.
The children encouraged each other really well and the crowds cheered them on!
Well done!

Thanks to all the children in the school band for giving a great performance in Bury Bandemonium. The crowds cheered and clapped as the band filled the market square with music in the Saturday afternoon sunshine.
We are all very proud of out talented young musicians.
Well done!

Family Treasure HuntTreasure Hunt Sprint
This year’s Treasure Hunt was one of the best ever!
The sun shone down as a record number of teams battled it out to get their hands on the coveted Treasure Hunt Trophy. The barbecue food was delicious and the big screen football added extra spice to a fun night, which raised 1000 for school - another record!
Thanks to our wonderful Friends Assocation for another lovely event and to everyone who helped to make it such a big success!
Well done!

Action Stations!Robinwood
This year’s residential trip to Robinwood was a great success.
The children threw themselves into every activity with tremendous energy and enthusiasm, and we were very proud of the way they faced-up to all the new challenges!

We have also had a letter from our local MP, James Frith, to say how proud he is of the school band and to congratulate them for winning the Rotary Trophy at the Ramsbottom Music Festival!

Growing Together on Gardening Day Gardening Day
Our green-fingered garden enthusiasts had great fun on Gardening Day. They planted all of the summer bedding plants from the PTA plant sale and also prepared their raised beds for a bumper crop of vegetables this summer. Now all we need to do is keep watering!

The children (and staff) used all their energy to complete this year’s Spring in Your Step challenges - a 1 mile walk (or run), a series of springy activities and finally a session on a bouncy castle!
At the end of the day there was a giant raffle of Easter eggs, to say well done and thank you to everyone who completed the course!
We are all raising money to make improvements to our playground facilities, so we thank everyone who has sponsored our lovely (and very energetic) children!

Great Spring Bake Off!Spring Bake Off

Thanks to the Friends’ Association for organising the event and to Kath Axon from Cake Craft of Ramsbottom for lending her expertise when it came to the judging!
We recommend that you do not view the photos if you are feeling hungry!

Year 3 Graffiti ArtGraffiti Art
Year 3 created ‘graffiti art’ and shared it as part of their class assembly. They researched the history of graffiti and had a debate about whether it should be classed as a form of art or just a type of vandalism. The children were very good at looking at the argument from both sides, but now it is time for you to decide what you think!

Y1 have been working on the three Rs!2017 Y1 Recycling Trip
Year 1 had a fascinating day out at the Recycling Centre in Liverpool. They learned all about the three Rs - Reduce, Re-use and Re-cycle and they saw a huge re-cycling plant in full swing. It was very interesting and gave them lots to think about!

Living History!Y6 Victorians
Y6 had a fascinating day when they turned the clock back to Victorian times and went to work in the grand hall at Tatton Park. They scrubbed the floors, made the beds, cleaned the silver and made some tasty scones! Then it was time to head back to school and to the present day for a good rest!

Year 1 Visit to St Andrew’s Church2017 Y1 Church visit
The children had a fascinating time learning about what you would find in a Christian Church. They were given a warm welcome from the vicar and they had a very good look around. They even got to ring the church bell in the bell tower!
Thank you to everyone at St Andrew’s for making us so welcome!

Art for Art’s SakeProfessor Illustrator
We had lots of fun when Professor Illustrator (Martin Olsson) came to school to lead our Art Day. He showed us how to create cartoon characters that had lots of personality and we all improved our drawing skills! Then we went back to class and did Art with our teachers all day! It was great!

Who’s the King of the Castle?2017 Castle Day
Y1 had a brilliant time on their Castle Day. They turned their classroom into a castle and prepared an enormous feast, which they ate together at a giant table. They even killed a dragon, which they found in the nature area! It was great fun!

The Pick of the Crop!Prize potato!
There was great excitement at the final weigh-in of the 2017 Hazlehurst Potato Growing Competition! Each class dug up their prized potatoes and then gathered together in the school hall for the results to be revealed. As a school, we grew an amazing 100 kg of potatoes, but the overall winners were the children of Year 5, who managed to grow an incredible 23 kg in their raised bed.
