Thank you all so much for the lovely gifts, cards and words on my retirement they were brilliant and very much appreciated. I have had a wonderful 6 Years working for the Federation, the children were great and it was rewarding looking after them. The staff are fantastic both past and present and do so much for the children. I will still be bringing my grandchildren to school occasionally and look forward to seeing you all. Once again many thanks to you all and all the best for the future.
No wifi or mobile phone signal at Crowden Residential. But I’m at home now for the night, back in time for breakfast tomorrow morning. When I left everyone was happy and having a good time, about to depart on a night walk. All armed with their torches, in the bright evening sunshine!!!! We’ve had a good day – activities today included the zip wire, and team building and problem solving activities all in the grounds surrounding the house. We ate our packed lunches outside, and by tea time everyone was ready for the Fish and Chips or Macaroni Cheese. Chocolate Fudge Cake and Ice cream for pudding. Lots of clean plates. Everyone seemed happy with the room mates. Best activity of the day: putting on your own duvet covers and making your own beds!! Diane Noakes
Well done to our Year 4’s who came 4th out of 12!!
We arrived safe and sound and had a fantastic morning playing with the Halle.
Year 4 World Book Day. We researched the characters we had dressed up as to start the day. We also learnt about what had inspired Eric Carle to write The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and how he edited his writing and developed the story from his original work called “The Week of Willi Worm!” Then we made colourful Hungry Caterpillar collages from tissue paper to copy his illustrating style.
