Mark making outdoors, using natural materials

A small group of children really enjoyed a mark making activity outside. The children were able to select different natural materials; such as, sticks and leaves. The children were able to see the effects that they created, using the different materials. This activity helps the children to develop their fine motor skills and helping them develop their imagination.

they each took in turns to add the ingredients
 They were very keen to eat them when they were cooked!!

Staying Safe!

Safe and enjoyable Hallowe`en & Bonfire Night – yes it will soon be upon us once again!

Cheshire Constabulary and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service are once again  joining forces this year to make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night.  The blue light services are working together to crack down on anti-social behaviour and amplify key fire safety advice to ensure that Hallowe’en and Bonfire night go off with the right sort of bang.  Hallowe’en and Bonfire night are one of the busiest times for us all  dealing with anti-social behaviour. We want to remind and encourage everyone to enjoy this time of year safely and to behave responsibly.  It is important that everybody respects their local community and residents who do not wish to be disturbed by trick or treaters. If you see a clear sign which states ‘No trick or treaters’, or no pumpkins or other decorations, please respect that person inside by not knocking on their door. Indeed, if the door is not answered at all, please accept that they do not wish to participate and move on to the next house.
We are therefore asking for your support in getting these key messages out to all schools in the run-up to and during this period, please make it clear to all students that officers will be deployed across the county to provide reassurance and do all they can to ensure that everyone has fun – without causing disruption to the community, those that chose to ignore the warnings and engage in anti-social behavior will be dealt with accordingly.
It may also be worth pointing out to your parents and guardians that some children’s Hallowe’en costumes can be extremely flammable, there have been some horrific accidents in recent years. Check the labelling in any costumes you buy, and tell your child to take care when near an open flame. Also, consider using LED lights in pumpkins instead of candles. If you do use candles, be extra careful both inside and outside the home.  Bonfires and nuisance fires can quickly spiral out of control causing devastation to the community and even risking lives. If possible, attend an organised display rather than holding bonfires and hosting firework displays at home. Professional displays are bigger, brighter and much safer for yourself and your local community. 
Through working in partnership we all play our part in keeping every one safe and happy during this festive period.

Election time

Today we held a whole school election to find out who our new team captains and vice captains were going to be. Year 6 candidates had written speeches which they delivered to an attentive audience! All the children they took part in a ballot and we talked about the importance of democracy  within our society.
