Cards for Wentworth House

Posted by Grosvenornews on Friday Mar 27, 2020 Under Curriculum

This week, some of the children who have been in school accessing childcare provision made cards for the residents of Wentworth House Care Home. We were due to visit the care home this week with our choir, so to show them that we are still thinking of them, we made a personalised card for each of their 25 residents. We hope these brightened their day!

On Thursday, Miss Dixon’s Class shared their learning about The Romans in their excellent class assembly – watched by parents and some of our younger pupils.

All the children took part, speaking confidently to their audience. They also shared their acting and singing skills with us. Well done to the whole class; all your hard work and preparation certainly paid off!

All parents were then invited to join their children in class to view their work and take part in topic activities.

Miss Boardman’s Y2 Class Visit to the Staircase House

Posted by Grosvenornews on Friday Mar 13, 2020 Under Curriculum, History, Year 2

This week, our Year 2 Classes went on a trip to the Staircase House in Stockport. We learned that this house is 500 years old! It is similar to the houses that were burnt down in the Great Fire of London!

The children dressed up as King Charles II, Samuel Pepys, maids, soldiers and a Link Boy (a Link Boy carried a lantern and escorted wealthy people around the dark streets of London, to keep them safe).

Do you know what date the Great Fire of London took place? Do you know what time the fire started and the name of the person responsible? How long did the fire burn for? Where did all the people live after the Great Fire? Y2 know the answers to all these questions!

Please continue to scroll down to see photographs from both Year 2 trips.

Year 5 World Book Day

Posted by Grosvenornews on Friday Mar 6, 2020 Under Curriculum

Our theme for World Book Day this year was World War Two and the story of Rose Blanche. This is a story from the perspective of an ordinary child who lived in Germany when the war broke out. In History, we learnt about how life would have been for children during the war and how many children were evacuated to the countryside due to the Battle of Britain.  

We had an excellent day and the children enjoyed wearing their Rose Blanche themed costumes. We dressed as evacuees, soldiers and even Rose Blanche herself.
