Orange Group Visit To The Library

The Orange group had a fantastic visit to Longton Library on Wednesday. Unfortunately Sandra couldn’t be there so Mrs Gater was the story teller. The children sat beautifully as she read the stories, Mrs Gater was really proud of their behaviour. Well done everyone, we hope you enjoy the stories you chose.

Marvellous Hanley Museum Visit

Year 3/1 have had a lovely afternoon looking at the fantastic displays as we moved around the museum (we even had time to look at a few skeletons in preparation for tomorrow’s science lesson).

Making our very own Stone Age pots using the ‘thumb’ pot method and then making coils to increase the size of the pot, was a real treat. Finally the children created wonderful Stone Age decorations to complete their piece of art. Well done.

Stone Age Pottery!

In the Spring Term, we have been learning all about the Stone Age! As part of our topic, we have visited Hanley Pottery Museum where the children were able to look at real artefacts from the Stone Age!

We have created our very own Stone Age pots using clay and other natural materials! The children are all really excited to bring their pots home tomorrow and already have many ideas for how they intend to use them!

Thank you for a lovely morning Year Three!

We had a special visitor in the Nursery today. Anna, the librarian from Longton Library. The children answered lots of questions and sat beautifully as she read ‘Max the Brave’. We would like to thank our parents and carers who came along, it was lovely to see so many of you. Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy sharing this story along with many others with your children.

Year 4 Visit The Potteries Museum

Mr Hunt’s class had a lovely morning visiting the wonderful Potteries museum in Hanley. The children listened carefully to our expert Lisa, who told us all about the history of the Staffordshire hoard. She showed us magnified photographs to see the detail of pieces, we held replica pieces and then got to look at pieces of the Staffordshire hoard itself, up close! We then went to design our own Saxon helmets using repeated patterns inspired by the Hoard itself.

The Brampton Toy Museum

Year One had a fantastic time at the toy museum, we discovered so many things about what children played with years ago. The zoetrope and flick books had the children fascinated!
We had so many lovely comments from visitors in the museum about how quiet and polite the children were.

Strawberries Visit To Longton Library

The Strawberry group had a lovely visit to Longton Library this morning. The children sat beautifully as Sandra, the librarian read three stories, which story did your child like most? We sang nursery rhymes and marched around singing ‘The Grand Old Duke of York’. The children then chose two stories to bring home.
Hearing Sandra and Mr Brown comment on the children’s fantastic behaviour made me so proud of all of you. Well done everyone!
