Weekly Reminders:


 P.E and Games

On a Monday, your child should come to school already dressed in their outdoor P.E. kit with a school jumper/cardigan on. 

They will remain in their kit all day and do not  need to bring their uniform to change into.



Year 6  Swimming Lessons


On Thursday, 22nd April 2021, children in Year 6 will be going swimming from school every week until Thursday, 8th July 2021.


Owls 1 (Miss. Bolton’s class) will go for the first five sessions and then Owls 2 (Miss. Kapler’s class) will go for the next 5 sessions.

The dates for the sessions are listed below:

The lessons will take part at Rochdale Swimming Baths and the children will be taken by coach, at no cost to you.  The children will be in the pool for one hour and the idea of these sessions is to turn swimmers into better swimmers and non-swimmers into swimmers.


The children will need a swimming costume, a swim hat and towel; there will be an instructor and a life guard at the swimming pool.
