WOW! Thank you to all the children who applied to be our Mini Mayor. We were really impressed by the passion they showed and their creative ideas for what this role may become. Six children were short-listed and all the children and staff were able to vote for the candidate who they felt would be the best. The children voted by placing a tiddly wink into the box, we tried to make it anonymous so the children understand the importance of democracy.

stART exhibition at Aston Library. Our children's work looks amazing. I admit that I am biased, but our school are the best! We have some very creative and talented children. Sadly we were limited to how many pieces of Art could be displayed. Well done.

Bags are packed, the bairns are in bed and we are looking forward to our final morning of fun. We will be exhausted when we return! The children are keen to tell you of their adventures. The squirrel pee is just one tale they'll tell!
Robinwood. Last activity for Monday - plastic cup challenge - who can build the highest tower? As usual, the staff were very competitive. Some children are a little pooped in the back ground. Apologies that some photos are upside down. That's the challenge for our fabulous parents; uploading on my phone isn't the easiest! Ive taken lots of photos on my camera too. Can't wait to share the picture of these magical moments with you all. They are making us all very proud.

A special thank you to the two children who carried our poppy wreath. The children in Year 5 wrote touching, heart-felt messages for the card. We were truly impressed by your thoughts for the heroes of wars past and present.
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS. Many of our families "won" tickets. Thank you to Chuckles, Hollywood Bowl, the Skate Station, Slide and Seek, & Tameside Active Leisure for kindly donating prizes. They were greatly appreciated!
POTATO BUS. The Children’s behaviour was brilliant as they learnt about how potatoes go from farm to fork. One of our pupils was the 20,000th child to step on the bus.
12 of our pupils were chosen to make scarecrows and sing Harvest songs with the residents at Millbrook Residential Home. The sun shone, fun was had by all. They made us extremely proud!
Thank you to Mrs Thompson, Miss Audin x2 and Mrs Pattison for coming too and clearing up all the straw!
Really proud of the children and staff, kindness is being spread like confetti!
