It’s sad day today, as we’ve had the Year 6 leavers assembly and we are also saying goodbye to two teaching assistants.
Year six entertained the whole school and their parents in the leavers assembly this morning. We saw pictures of them when they entered nursery aged 4 years old. We also watched video of them at Winmarleigh Hall earlier in the year and were entertained and informed about world war Two
It is not just Year Six who are leaving today! Mrs Prince who has been working with children in Year 4 is moving onto a new schools and new challenges in September and Mrs Carter, who used to work in Year Two has now officially retired. We wish them both the best of luck in the future.
Junior Sports Day was once again a big success and we even managed to find an hour gap between the showers – but only just! This year the yellow team were the winners.
Today Year two have been busy working in groups designing and making a moving vehicle. We had lots of fun and at the end we tested them by rolling them down a ramp.
The summer showcase started of with the Year 4 wind band
Next on stage were Year 3 performing a musical about the life of King Tutankhamn
Finally Year 5 and 6 performed ‘Beowulf’ which they had performed at The Lowry theatre only a few days before.
The evening was a great success and just goes to show what a talented group of children we have at The Deans!
With the original sports day being cancelled due to rain, this afternoon the children in the Foundation Stage enjoyed an action packed pirate sports day in the sunshine.
Children in Year 6 havehad rugby coaching from Salford City Reds community development officers. A group of children represented The Deans in a seven-a-side rugby league festival for local schools. We reached the final but at full time the scores were level, it had been a fantastic team effort, now a ‘golden try’ would determine the victors. llum ran the length of the field to touch down to make The Deans the festival winners!
