Maths’ Passport Competition
To raise the awareness of our Maths’ Passports and encourage our children to practise their number facts at home, Mrs Terry has announced a competition. Every time an objective is completed, each child will win a raffle tickets. At the end of the Autumn term, a draw will take place and the winners will go on a fabulous shopping spree with Mrs Terry and Mr Moore. Good luck!
Walk to School
This year, we have a challenge for all our children. We want as many children as possible to walk to school everyday. To encourage our children to get healthy and reduce the amount of traffic on the road, we will track how children have got to school on a daily basis. Those children who walk to school regularly will receive a fantastic, interactive badge each month for the whole year. We even had a special visitor come to school to start off our Walk to School campaign.
Pennies for Springhill Hospice
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
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.
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
To celebrate the fabulous author, Roald Dahl, we had a day of Roald Dahl activities in school and even some of his most famous characters came to see us.
