Year 6 had a fantastic time at The Seven Acres Nature Reserve near Bolton. Children explored the woods there in order to collect leaf samples and classify the different tree species. Later, they hunted for insects, molluscs and crustaceans in the undergrowth, examining their features and adaptations to their environment. They also took part in pond dipping to sample and classify the marine life, without anyone getting too wet! It was a brilliant trip with lots of fun scientific learning!
Parent Assembly 3W
Yr 3W Parent Assembly
Well done to 3W for a fantastic assembly. Their topic on animals and Humans has been very interesting and the children have been telling us all about what they have found out. They have look at food facts and what is useful for our body, and looked at the skeleton structure, and have found that interesting as a baby we have more bones than as an adult. They have looked at Humans and Animals and have found that not all animals have a backbone, these are called invertebrates and all living things that have a backbone are Vertebrates, which confused the children as to what category Mr. Winnick comes into.

Year 5 had a great day at Jodrell Bank, this covers part of their Science Topic Earth and Space where they look at the movement of the earth and other planets, and how the position of the sun changes during the day and how the Earth’s rotation causes day and night.
With lots of hands on activities and experiments, the children had a fantastic day.

World Book Day 2019
It was great to see the children so relaxed today and enjoying reading, as our theme was Bedtime Stories and the children were in Pyjamas, what better than to have a relaxing hot chocolate and marshmallows, which went down a treat.
For our Older year 6 children they enjoyed reading stories to some of the younger children.

Heath Cottage - Community Cohesion
A selection of our Key Stage 2 children have been to visit some of the elderly within the community. They had a lovely relaxing afternoon reading their favourite stories and playing games with them. For many elderly people it is sad to say that many may not often get visitors. As part of linking within our community the children have been to visit and spent and enjoyable afternoon talking to many of the residents. It is hoped that they may be able to come and visit the children in school to watch some of our parades or assemblies.
