Year 2 Transition.
We held our annual transition day on Monday this week where we had some very special guests – Year 2! They met their new teacher, explored their new classroom and took part in exciting activities including a Book World Cup. They boys narrowed down a selection of eight books and chose Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as their class read for September, which Mrs Murphy was delighted with, as it’s her favourite too. We are all looking forward to seeing the boys arrive as Year 3 and, judging by the grins in these photographs, they’re quite excited too!
Year 3 Trip to Tree Tops.
Year 3 spent the day exploring Heaton Park on Wednesday, starting with a new aerial adventure playground! To tie in with our sports topics we took it to the extreme, trampolining twenty feet in the air and even playing giant dodge ball on the bouncy nets! Lots of fun was had and we were glad to cool down later with a picnic lunch in the park. A long walk followed, exploring mysterious tunnels and secret gardens full of squirrels and the boys began to plot an adventure story that they will be writing back at school.
Congratulations to Ethan who has not only swum an incredible 800m to gain his latest ASA Rainbow swimming qualification, but also reached Trampoline Proficiency Level 8 recently – what a versatile set of skills! ‘Swimpolining’ – a new category in next year’s Sports Day perhaps!?
We are very proud of Mohsin for challenging himself to run a 5k race in Heaton Park in July, while raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The best of luck Mohsin! And well done for setting such a great example to all the boys in the school.
