Highly acclaimed, local artist, Wynne Roberts worked with all the children in school to design and produce a piece of work that would reflect the ethos of our school. All of our children, in all of our classes, took part in the project and painted the colourful designs. Everyone had a great time creating the artwork and Wynne was overwhelmed with the enthusiasm and passion of the children. We are thrilled with the results and think they echo perfectly what our school is all about - we hope you like them too!
Pleae pop in to our reception area and take a look, if you have not done so already!

The children used appropriate safety knives and prepared the fruits for eating.

Carrie, a Zoofari Ranger from Chester Zoo, talked to us about minibeasts and showed us some pictures of the different animals that live in the Zoo. She brought in artefacts of minibeasts which we were able to touch and study. We learnt many new facts about minibeasts, including how they use sensory information in a differnet way. We also learnt how it is important that we look after them because they are only small, but they are an essential part of the food chain.

Example of our Poems.
Gnarled branches stretched,
A forest of pine trees smiled,
The tranquil pond,
A slight ripple breaks.
Gnarled branches stretched,
Cool autumn breeze,
Through the reeds.
Gnarled branches stretched,
The watery yellow, pink and violet hues,
As the moon slowly rose,

A wonderful time was had by all at the annual Crowton Summer Fete. The theme this year was 'Festival of Food' and the children once again delighted the crowds with their song and dance medley - there was even a surprise appearance from Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood! Daisy was our 2015 Rose Queen and it was lovely to see Chloe again, our retiring Rose Queen, who returned to hand over her crown. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day so successful.

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!

Many thanks to the Friends of Crowton School for arranging another successful May Madness event and to everyone who supported it.

Many thanks to Mr Pickering who kept everyone entertained with his his inflatable party games.

On Thursday 5th March our school choir took part in the Young Voices concert at the Manchester Phones4U Arena. They joined with many other school choirs to form the UK's largest choir and performed as one to a capacity arena audience.
With a full live band, backing singers and the internationally acclaimed conductor David Lawrence, the concert makes for one of the most exciting and memorable musical experiences you can imagine.
All the music is specially selected and arranged to give the children the widest variety of songs to perform. For some of the music, dance moves are also performed to add to the atmosphere.
Our choir performed brilliantly and all the children had a fabulous time!

The pupils at Crowton Primary School had a fantastic time celebrating World Book day 2015 on 6th March. The children came to school dressed up as their favourite book character; there were some really great costumes and ideas!
Rachael Lindsay, a children's author, visited our school and ran literacy workshops for all classes. The children met the troll's from her stories and learned about their characters. They explored the story of 'Warrior Troll' and imagined the contents of the casket. Rachael spoke to the children about creating characters and settings for stories.
KS2 children learned about the writing process and planning of a book. They collected a' villainous word bank' to help them describe a villains appearance, movement and speech.
