Islam: Imran's visit and a trip to the Mosque, by Mr Pugh
Date: 4th Nov 2019 @ 10:32am
Just before half term we were visited by Imran who came in to talk to us about Islam. He showed us artefacts and explained the Five Pillars of Islam. Then he worked with Class 3 and Class 4 teaching them about prayer and pilgrimage.
What a great day we had during our visit to Zakariyya Mosque in Bolton. It was a very informative visit and a great way to round off our R.E. learning about Islam. Check out our photos. Here you can see the children taking part in Wudu (the act of cleaning the body before prayer) and wowing the Mosque members with their knowledge of the subject.

Class 1's Lego Workshop!, by Miss Fearon
Date: 16th Jul 2019 @ 6:28pm
On Thursday, we had a visit from Stephen from the Creative Builders Team. He brought thousands of Lego bricks with him and the challenge for us to make our own versions of London landmarks. Using a range of design and structural skills we worked together in small teams to build our own versions of Big Ben, Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace. Then we put it all together to create our very own city.
What an exciting day! Class 1 worked together as the fantastic team that I know they are and we got to see all the creativity, teamwork, problem solving and collaborative skills that we have been developing all year. Stephen even commented that he was impressed with the final product. Take a look at our photos. I'm very impressed with what they made together.

Sports Day Success, by Miss Watson
Date: 2nd Jul 2019 @ 3:42pm
We held our Sports Day on Tuesday 2nd July. Just like last year, the morning involved children working in mixed age teams to complete a series of eight skill challenges. The skill challenges included shooting goals in both football and netball; discus, shotput and javelin throwing; long jump, hurdles and shuttle run. Children have been practising these skills during their P.E. lessons with Mr. Harris this half-term. All children earned team points during each activity.
In the afternoon, children were involved in a series of traditional races - sprinting, balancing quoits, relay and finally a lap (or two for Year 5 and Year 6!) round our track. The first four winners of each race won points for their teams.
When all the team points had been totalled, Mr. Harris informed everyone of the final result! Congratulations to Hutton who won the Sports Day Cup once again!
Many thanks to
- Mrs. Gavriluk and Mr. Harris for planning and organising this successful sports day
- All the parent volunteers and staff who supervised the different activities
- P.T.A. ladies for providing refreshments
- All those parents and other family members who joined us to enjoy our sports day
- All our children for showing us their best sporting performance - you were BRILLIANT!
- A special thank you and well done to all the Year 6 team leaders who did a FAB job managing their teams

Class 2's Chick Visitors, by Mr McGurk
Date: 9th May 2019 @ 7:59pm
To help us understand animal life cycles Class 2 have been very lucky to have some very new visitors.
Thomas Hizzard's family brought in an incubator with a small clutch of eggs for us to watch and observe.
It was very exciting and we were very lucky to have 9 chicks hatch in our classroom. We even got to see some of the chicks push their way out of their shells and chip their way out withtheir egg tooth. We learned to identify some of the breeds such as White Wine Dots, Rhode Island Reds and Pekins. One of the most exciting moments was when we discovered that 'Batchick', who is a black chick, is an unknown breed and we are still hoping to find out more. We have researched the life cycles of chicks and hens and look out for some of our writing appearing soon.
What a brilliant experience.

We learned so much and this is just a snapshot of our day!
