Festival of Writing
This week some of our pupils took part in a Festival of Writing with the author Anthony Lishak. Our Year 2 class did some work with based around his book ‘Clickety Clack Something to Pack’. The children created their own “suitcase books” and decide what they wanted to pack in their cases – using rhyme, alteration and descriptive language. Today Year 2 went to Park View Primary to share their suitcases with the other schools, and took part in a fun filled day of workshops. Year 5 also took part in a writing workshop were they had the opportunity to develop and extend their writing skills.

The exhibition of work will take place Week beginning 30th March. The artist Ruth Moilliet is hosting an exhibition at the Gallery and has agreed to judge the competition. Mrs Ryan took the pupils to the Library to see the pictures on display.
Morris dancing champions
Well done to Madison and Emily who won first prize at a Morris dancing competition. Madison won a medal for being the best leader. The girls explained they won because they always listen to their trainer and to the leader who bangs the tambourine. They made sure they pointed their toes and kept their arms stiff . All the mums started crying when the troop won because they were so proud of the girls. There are nine in their troop which is called Valencia Morris Dancers. Both Madison and Emily go every week and think it is fantastic. Well done to them both.

The Choir have been practising for a few months now to perform at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester. The day finally arrived last Monday when they set off by coach soon after lunch. During the afternoon there was a practice and finally the time came for the pupils from our Choir and other Choirs from all over the North West performed the songs. The atmosphere was amazing. All the Choirs were dressed the same and all the children had small lights. When they sang the lights were dimmed and the Choirs were illuminated by the lights. Pupils, parents and staff had a wonderful evening.
