Some more photos from Jodrell Bank

Nursery and Reception’s trip to Jodrell Bank was certainly one to remember! All of the children and adults had an amazing day and we definitely learnt lots. Take a look at some more photos from our day out:

Thank you once again to all of the parent helpers who joined us on the trip. It was a brilliant day.

Year 6 SATs

A huge well done to our Year 6s who have worked incredibly hard this week. We are very proud of your efforts and positive attitude over the last 4 days.

Pej, Nathan, Lucy, Abi, Daniel, Fin Mc, Fin H and Charlie all said, “They were not as hard as you would think. They were easier than we expected.”

Molly B said, “The grammar test was my best paper, it was like we practised.”

“It’s gone quickly,” said a relaxed Sam.

Harley on the other hand said, “They were easier than I expected, but it went slowly.”

Molly K said, “We’re glad that we’ve got them over and done with so we can relax!”

Maliha and Willow commented, “The reading test was the hardest, but the others were alright.”

Zaina, Thomas, Sofia, Adam and Hope all enthused about the start of the day, “We enjoyed having breakfast with all our friends and having time to chat. We ate 2kg of Nutella! Yummy!”

Willam said, “It’s not as hard as people make it seem.”

“Mrs Murphy’s cakes were delicious,” said Liam.

Palina said, “The maths tests were easy!”

Courtney thought, “The second maths reasoning paper was easier than the first.

Ollie and Gabby had very different views. Ollie said, “Easy!” whereas Gabby thought, “They were the worst thing ever!”

James, Molly K and Jas gave some useful advise, “Year 6s for the future don’t have anything to worry about. Your teacher will make sure that you are ready for them.”

 

Enjoy a well earned rest this weekend Year 6.

Our trip to Jodrell Bank

Nursery and Reception had a fabulous day at Jodrell bank.

We were astounded by the size of the enormous telescope!

We were fascinated by the inflatable planetarium where we zoomed into far away planets like Jupiter.  We made and blasted our own rockets and found out about the first landing on the moon.  Thank you to all our fantastic helpers for a thoroughly great day out!  Here are a few highlights.

Our Fantastic New Garden..

Last week I posted a photograph of the work being done on the Nursery garden. The children were very excited – we had lots of conversations about what we thought the new garden would look like and the things we would like to have in it.

After a week and a half of construction, the new play area is now complete and the children are thrilled! Take a look…

The amazing treehouse!

It is a vast improvement on what we had before:

Manchester City Football Festival

Today  we were immensely proud of some of  our Reception and Year 1 children who took part in a football tournament at the Manchester City training ground along with 11 other schools.  We showed determination, team work,  great sportsmanship and immense enthusiasm.  Both myself and Mrs Denford were extremely privileged to take such a fabulous group to the event.

Thank you also to our wonderful parents who came along to support the event!  You had the best view!

Here are a few high-lights
