Rollercoaster Science Day at Moorside07-07-2017 | 18:13:52 | No Comments

Many of our year six children had a fantastic time at Moorside High School today. They had half a day doing practical experiments in the labs (followed by a quiz) and half a day creating rolder coasters! Well done to Ben, Dylan and Paris: their wonderful creation was judged to be the best Rollercoaster in the afternoon session (and also received the highest score for the whole day!).

Thank you to all the staff at Moorside for a terrific day and to the Year 7 pupils who helped out (it was nice to see a few familiar faces again!).


Business Enterprise Project- Trade Fair07-07-2017 | 17:57:29 | 1 Comment

On Thursday 6th, the 2017 Business Enterprise Project culminated in the traditional trade fair. All of the business did really well and several really excelled. We certainly have some entrepreneurs in the making!



Thank you to the rest of the school community (staff, parents and pupils) for once again supporting our project.

Author Visit – Alan Blank01-07-2017 | 09:11:59 | No Comments

On Friday 30th June, Alan Blank came back in to read the final three chapters of his book, Barry Spotter, with Year 6. He had kindly visited us in May to read the first few chapters and answer questions from the children. Since then, we have continued to read the books in our classes (using the set of books he kindly lent us) in preparation for Friday’s visit!


Not only did Alan (along with some of our wonderful readers) read aloud the end of book, he also shared a couple of ‘secrets’ about the sequel (don’t worry, Alan, our lips are sealed!). There was also chance for some of our fantastic writers to share their own writing with Alan which he was really impressed with.


Following the visit, all the children wrote a short review about the book (for Alan to take with him) and suggested ideas that they would like to see in book 2! Alan has promised that he will contact us to let us now if he uses any of them…so watch this space!


The picture below is a panoramic view of Y6 engrossed whilst reading (you will probably need to zoom in a bit for full effect)!



Thank you for coming to visit Alan. It was very kind of you and we look forward to welcoming you back next year!
