Switched On and Ready to Sing!

Our Key Stage 2 children really got Christmas started on Thursday night with some wonderful singing at school before walking into the village for Switch on. It was wonderful to see so many happy faces and share all their hard work learning words for the songs. Thanks to Mrs Heathcock for all of her energy and enthusiasm helping the children prepare for this special event.

FASA did a wonderful job manning stalls in both our school hall and at the Buttermarket as well as guiding us all down together to meet Father Christmas at the Canal Wharf. A wonderful evening for all involved.

We were treated to more musical talents in a special showcase from some of our talented musicians in school on Wednesday afternoon.

Children who have been learning to play a variety of instruments with Mrs Shackleston performed a wonderful array of music to parents and some of the classes in school. They were very brave to perform in front of so many people and it was great that so many relatives were able to join them for this performance.

Styal Mill

Diamond class visited Styal Mill on Monday to find out more about their Victorians topic. They looked fantastic in their Victorian costumes and speaking to them and Mrs Heathcock this week they certainly learnt a lot from the experience which they are putting to good use in class.


Good luck to our Key Stage 2 athletics team who are representing our school at a Sporthall Athletics Competition this evening at Shavington High School. Mr Griffiths and Miss Johnson have been working hard with them all and I am sure they will do a great job!
