Autumn Term Return to School Arrangements for Year 5 Children

Please note that school will be closed to pupils on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd September 2020 for staff training. To help prevent the spread of Coronavirus we recommend that adults wear a protective face mask and we thank you for your support and cooperation.

  • Children who are in Year 5 will attend school from 1.00pm-3.00pm on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th September.  Parents will drop their children at the main gate, where they will be met by Mrs Staton

With effect from Monday 7th September 2020 – To prevent bubbles from crossing as much as possible, we will be staggering drop off and collection times for each class for the foreseeable future.  However, to make this as simple for parents as possible, siblings can be dropped off as a group and collected as a group if required. 

  • Year 5 pupils and their siblings will be dropped at the main playground gate at 9.00am.
  • Year 5 pupils and their younger siblings will be collected from the main playground gate at 3:10pm.


To support working parents, we will be offering a free wraparound care service from 7:30am-5.00pm on both Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th September.  There will be limited places available to maintain bubbles, and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Please only request these places if absolutely necessary, and contact the school office as soon as possible no later than Tuesday 1st September 2020..

Manchester Week
As part of our skills showcase, our topic was Manchester week.  During this week, year 5 went on a trip to Manchester Art Gallery, we had a look around parts of the art gallery, particularly the section on L S Lowry.  We then split into two groups, one group completed art tasks to help create an art installation for the gallery and the other group had a construction task where they costed and built a 3D structure which would form part of a display at the gallery and would symbolise the recent construction work they have had done.





Autumn Term 2019

We had a fantastic trip to Chester Zoo in early December which was a very rewarding experience.  The staff from Chester Zoo had been working with us  at school for four weeks prior to our visit as part of the “Wildlife Connections” project.  Our help in the project will enable the zoo to create safe spaces for the precious wildlife.  The things we have learnt will also help us protect our wildlife for future generations and we joined in with some very interesting activities and watched the zoo rangers at work too.  All the children in Year 1 through to Year 6 have also be given a FREE ticket so our families can go along to Chester Zoo and enjoy a great day out together.
