Pennies for Springhill Hospice - May 2017
On Friday 12th May, the children all bought their penny coins in to see how long a line they could create. All the money raised is being donated to the Springhill Hospice.
Maths' Happiness Fair - March 2017
After three weeks of product design, production, quality control and profit predictions, the children of Hamer and Springside were able to spread happiness selling their fantastic products at the Maths' Happiness Fair.
Both the Mayor and Mayoress of Rochdale were in attendance to open the fair and sample the delights that the children had been working incredibly hard on over the last few weeks.
The atmosphere inside the hall was fantastic for the whole afternoon, with almost every stall selling out of their goods. All monies raised are going to go towards spreading happiness in the community.
We would like to thank all the parents who supported school with donations (and spending money) to help make our second happiness fair a huge success.
Learning Powers - January 2017
At the start of the Spring term, we have asked our children to think about learning and what makes a good learner. This has involved some fantastic discussions and high quality work to complement these. The children have been very astute in what they have said and we hope to develop their ideas even further.
Roald Dahl Day - September 2016
