Transition athletics tournament
Congratulations to our team of Year 6 children that took part in the Stockport schools athletics transition tournament last week. This was comprised of some of the secondary schools and their feeder primary schools. There were some exceptional performances from both the boys and the girls and Mr Elias was very proud of the way the children represented the school. Well done 
The children who took part were Izzy C, Kira B, Lucy B, Faye H, Scott S, Harry W, Will A and Michael S.

Homework
The teachers have been absolutely blown away by the overall high standard and unique nature of some of the projects that have been created using the new homework matrix. It is a pleasure to see children choosing to extend their learning in practical and creative ways. Thank you for sharing these with us 

This year there are poppies, stickers and wristbands being sold in school commencing Wednesday,
19th October at break times and lunch times. If your child would like make a purchase a poppy, I suggest a minimum donation of 10p for the stickers, 20p for poppies and 50p for wristbands.
