Busy Busy
It has been a very busy few weeks at school. We have had two fantastic assemblies from Year 2 and Year 5. Year 2 educated us all about germs and bacteria. Year 5 showcased a wide range of hobbies and interest. It was a pleasure to watch the children share their learning and interests with the both their parents and the other children. The assemblies can be watched again on the classes’ E-school pages.
Operation Eagle Eye was a great success, children from Year 6 patrolled the streets armed with a speed camera and surveyed the local traffic. Year 2 explored the local area learning how to cross the road safely. Year 5 investigated how to strengthen and reinforce vehicles and Year 4 examined the importance of wearing a helmet when riding a bike.

Brilliant Books
On Monday 5th February I took a group of children from school to purchase new books for our exciting library. The children were randomly selected for the trip and the school councilors had spent considerable time discussing with their classes different books, authors and themes that they were interested in.
Armed with a very large shopping list we set off to Madeleine Lindleys in Chadderton to purchase lots of amazing books. The children were very helpful and filled the baskets with amazing books and we spent £3500 on books for the library. It was a pleasure to take the children there as the next step in creating our wonderful library. The library will be officially opened on the 1st March as part of our World Book Day Celebrations.
