Please remember to send your child in with their book bag each day, as well as a bottle of water. On hot days, please apply sun cream before school.

Something strange is going on , by Mr Ellis

Date: 7th Jun 2018 @ 8:54am

Wow what a brilliant couple of days we have been having in Plum class the children have come back eager to learn lots and are excited about our new classroom.
Today we arrived to find baked beans all over one of our cupboards....Who could it have been? What has happened? We are not sure at all. After our discovery the children have become detectives and we are looking for clues as to what may have happened in our classroom - watch this space!

We have also planted some beans of our own today to see what happens. The children are taking this very seriously and have been seen to sing to their bean, read to them and check on them very regularly. I think Plum class has some very well loved beans. P.S there is a rumour that they might be magic!

Bug Club , by Mr Ellis

Date: 7th Jun 2018 @ 8:52am

All children have updated books on their bug club account in Plum. If you are finding it hard to access or have lost their login details please ask a member of the reception team and we will get this sorted straight away for you. Children will move around the reading racetrack for reading on bug club.
Thank you.

This afternoon 18 of our children from Year 5 and 6 took part in a Cross Country Competition at The Winsford Academy.

They ran as fast as they could over this long distance and as a result they finished second and qualified for the next round!! Fantastic news everyone. Really well done!

Our visit to Stockley Farm , by Mr Ellis

Well today's trip to Stockley was enjoyed by all! The weather was quite kind, and the animals very friendly. We learnt all about how to care for all the different animals, and even bottle fed some baby goats. There was a little time to play on the indoor play area, and lunch in the tearoom was very exciting! Many thanks to all staff at Stockley for the wonderful activities and to all of our parent helpers - we couldn't have managed the trip without you
