Orienteering - 30th June 2016

Date: 10th Oct 2017 @ 10:27am

On Thursday 30th June we took a large group of year 3/4 children to our local area orienteering competition.

The event was held at Macclesfield Athletics track and the children followed a map to certain points around the track as well as going onto the fields of Fallibroome Academy.

The event was extremely technical with the children using electronic dibbers.

They all had a fantastic time, worked well as a team and many of them wanted to have another go!

I am happy to announce that one of our boys teams came third place over all, Finlay P, Charlie H and Kyle L.

Our year 5/6 boys football team played their first match on Tuesday 29th November, against Hazel Grove Primary School. I was very impressed with how they played, with both defenders and attackers playing a strong game. The team played very well together and the score was 2-1 to Hazel Grove. A huge well done to the boys who played and especially to Archie K for scoring the goal. I look forward to watching them progress in the many games to come.

LP Children Celebrate Queen’s Birthday

Date: 10th Oct 2017 @ 9:57am

The pupils at Lower Park School were delighted to celebrate the Queen’s birthday. They marked the special day by abandoning normal lessons in favour of learning more about our longest reigning monarch.

In the morning, the children learnt and sang the National anthem, investigated the heritage of the Royal family, drew and made Union flags and created timelines of the Queen’s life.

In the afternoon, the school hall was royally decorated for all the children to enjoy a massive celebratory tea party, with cakes, juice and sweets. A day to remember indeed.

Lower Park Harvest Festival Raises Over £500 for Uganda School

Date: 10th Oct 2017 @ 9:56am

Children at Lower Park School have once again, come to the aid of their partner school, St James’ School in Uganda.

As part of their Harvest Festival, the children in Key Stage Two focused upon what harvest means in different places around the world. Having fostered a relationship between Lower Park and St James’ School in Kamuli, Gerry Hambridge was invited along to tell them a little more about the way Ugandan children harvest rice up to their waist in paddy fields. She also explained that their partner school was suffering after a tree demolished the toilet block during a storm.

Knowing the plight of the African school, the children were encouraged to create a money trail from the school hall to their own toilets. The children were so excited placing their offerings along the corridors which stretched the full length of the school and back again!

At the end, the children were able to hand over £317 from the coin trail, £102 from Lois, Holly and Daisy who organised a huge raffle at school, £49 from Tom and Bethany who persuaded their parents to empty their ‘spare change’ pots and £62 from the Year 6 Committee Cake Sale. Altogether the children raised a staggering £530.

Mrs Hambridge was almost lost for words as she explained that this, along with many other donations, means that enough has been raised to finish building the latrines. Planning to fly out just three days after the Harvest Festival, she said “This is such a relief and means while I’m out in Uganda the toilets will be completed which will allow the children to return to school in February at the beginning of the next school year. Absolutely wonderful!”

Around the World in 30 Minutes

Date: 10th Oct 2017 @ 9:55am

The children were transported around the world on Tuesday during their Google Expedition. Using clever technology, the children were able to see the wonderful sites in the world; the Great Barrier Reef, the Pyramids, the Great Wall of China etc. The ‘OOHS and AAHHs’ that came from the hall continued all morning as the project really fired their imagination.

It is a simple and accessible technology linked to Google Earth 360 and photographs of some of the children using the special view finders will be seen on the website soon.
