We had flags and bunting out on Wednesday 9th September out as we celebrated our Queen becoming Britain's longest-reigning Monarch EVER, succeededing the previous record set by her Great-Great Grandmother Queen Victoria. The children joined together for a special assembly in school where they learned all about the Queen's reign - from her ascension to the throne in 1952 following King George VI's death, her Coronation, her duties, her silver, gold and diamond jubilee, and also her family and homes. We watched video clips, saw lots of pictures and all sang the National Anthem.

Crowton Football Team in Winning Form
Date: 24th Oct 2014 @ 3:17pm
Crowton PrimarySchool Football Team enjoyed a great match against Great Budworth on Thursday evening.
In a game that saw 15 players take part in a match of 4 quarters, the team ran out 7-6 winners, although no one really took any notice of the score, as they delighted in seeing some fantastic sporting behaviour.
The match was played 6 -a-side due to Great Budworth's numbers, so the team was changed on a regular basis with all players given lots of opportunities to show their skills and enjoy some excellent team play. Joe started as goalkeeper but tried his hand at defender too with Riley, Matty and Ellie A also performing well between the posts!
The team even had the chance to play a period as an all girls team (apart from Joe who took up his place in goal) and never conceded a goal against a strong team. Pamela, Ellie T, Ellie A, Lily J and Lily F doing an excellent job during that passage of play.
Ben scored a fabulous hat trick in the game, but it was Louie who scored ' goal of the day' with a superb header! Bobby was solid all over the pitch, and Alex was excellent in midfield with some surging runs. Beau, Jude and Frank defended soundly throughout and were strong at the back.
We look forward to the return game, which we hope will be as evenly contested next half term.

Keith from Roberts Bakery came to visit Class 1. He showed us a film about the bakery and how they make bread. We never knew that robots helped! We were bakers for the session and wore our special hats as we decorated gingerbread men. We took a gingerbread man home and made one each to be sold at the Macmillan coffee morning in school on Friday 24th October.
Photos will follow.

Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do and we endeavour to ensure that our parent's receive information on all school events and activities. We do this by sending letters, flyers etc. home with our children and also by providing information on our website.
With effect from September we will also be using ParentMail, a text message service, to communicate urgent/emergency information e.g. school closures, cancelled clubs etc. and reminders to our parents.
Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
