Class 2 Visit to Liverpool

Date: 4th Jun 2015 @ 4:02pm

On Tuesday 2nd June class 2 had a very exciting day at the World Museum in Liverpool. The children got the train from Acton Bridge station to Liverpool Lime Street station; some of the children had not been on a train before and so were very excited and nervous at the same time! At the museum the children learned about ancient Egypt and took turns to pop their heads through a Tutankhamun cut out. They dressed up as anglo-saxons and explored animals, from mini-beasts to dinosaurs, in their natural envirnoments. The also children enjoyed a special visit to the planetarium during their visit. 

Before the children left Liverpool, they had time to have a tea time treat at a nearby hotel . Then, it was back to the station for the train journey home. 

Mrs Harris and Mrs Martin were extremely proud of the way in which the children conducted themselves  throughout the whole day; their excellent behaviour was praised and noted by members of museum staff. Well done Class 2!

'Danger at St. Magnets' Kinetic Theatre Workshop

Date: 29th Jan 2015 @ 9:21am

On Wednesday 28th January all the children took  part in a fun and engaging, inter-active science show performed by the Kinetic Theatre company. The show, entitled, Danger at St. Magnets,’ focused on the  Classification of materials, magnetism and heat sections of the National Curriculum for Science. During the show the children were encouraged to recognise a variety of materials and  sort them into groups of natural and man-made. Properties (appearances, hardness, magnetic, non-magnetic), reasons for selecting materials and the concept of heat travelling from hot to cold was demonstrated throughout. KS2 children learned about thermal expansion with a demonstration of the bimetallic strip.Magnetism was also illustrated with an electromagnet.

 

The story of the show : set in 1946, in the staff room of St Magnet's Primary School in the sleepy village of Upper Copperbottom. the distinguished headmaster has been asked to judge the village marrow competition when the school cook notices the boiler is on the blink. Could there be a fault with the bimetallic strip in the thermostat? Or are any other materials involved? Furthermore why is there a magnet in the stockroom? Who has stolen the prized silver trophy? and what is the music teacher doing in the village church belfry? It transpires that treachery is afoot and the saboteur wants to destroy the school! If the boiler isn't fixed quickly there is a serious threat of explosion!

Crowton Garden Fete and Opening of Butterfly Garden

Date: 15th Jul 2014 @ 12:39pm

Once again the Crowton Garden Fete proved to be a huge success , enjoyed by everyone who attended. The rain kept at bay and the sun shone brightly as the Revd. Gill Stanning was invited to officially open the fete.   Everyone gathered to see the retiring  Rose Queen and her retinue  complete their final duties and our new Rose Queen , Chloe Wakeford, accompanied by her  young Attendants was ceremoniously crowned.   The Rose Queen is traditionally the oldest and longest serving girl at Crowton School and her attendants are the youngest girls and boys in the school.

As is customary at the Fete The children of Crowton Primary School entertained the crowds with their medley of 'Songs from the Films'. The audience sang and clapped along as the children each took their turn to perform in the arena. And, to the delight of everyone, there were few surprise performances from the staff who appeared dressed as Chewbacca (Star Wars), the Seven Dwarves, Captain Hook and the Wicked Witch of the West!

Fun was had by all at the various stalls and activities taking place on the school field throughout the afternoon.

 

The fete this year was preceded by a special school and community event- the grand opening of the Butterfly Garden. The garden, a newly refurbished play area for the children, has been a project close to the hearts of the governors, staff and children of Crowton Primary School. It was inspired by, and is dedicated to a pupil of our school, Skye Higgins, who very sadly lost her fight against leukaemia last year, aged 5 years old . To mark the opening, the children of the school each released a balloon in her memory.
