Mr Crompton (Martha’s grandad) came in to talk about WW1 and WW2.The school councillors have had a meeting about playground toys and that each class is going to have a sack of new toys, each class is allowed to spend £100!

WC 01.10.18
On Thursday the cross-country team competed and they did really well! On Friday the football team are representing the school by playing at St. Augustine’s high school. Lots of luck to the team!  It was class 5’s Family Assembly today, all about light and shadow, and Mrs Welch thought it was amazing! Next week is Themed Week and we are really looking forward to it! There will be lots of exciting activities going on in each class. On Friday afternoon parents are allowed to come in to look at everyone’s work. Thank you to everybody that has knitted or crocheted some poppies for Whalley Remembers, and just a reminder that there is still time to bring lots more in!

 WC 14.09.18
Years 2,3 and 4 have been enjoying their taster sessions for tennis. We had our first Family Assembly with parents this week and Mrs Welch revealed who were this term’s Head Boy and Head Girl: Harry and Martha! Also, we found out who our new School Council representatives are: Tyler, Juliet, Jackson, Sophie, Ruby, Bobby, Frank, Erin, Naomi, Xander, Phoebe, Charlie, Katie and Jacob. Congratulations to those children! A few of the year 5s and 6s went to the CRGS opening evening and had a lot of fun! The receptions have been settling in nicely and are having an absolutely brilliant time!
