Report By Beatrice, Year 5
On Friday 27th of February 2015, Class 4 went on a walk down to the woods at the end of Ainsworth Lane. We went for this walk because in Literacy we have been reading a book called 'Stolen Secrets' by Rachael Lindsay. When we went out we were looking for possible troll houses, or actual trolls. Sean ( a boy in our class) found a tree stump, which from a distance looked like an actual troll!
Trudging through the muddy, boggy path, some people got quite muddy, including me! As we were travelling through the woods a small, long fast-flowing river guided us through the endless tangle of branches and leaves. Peering around the woods, our class pictured a scene where Finnr's nest hung suspended in the air.
A sweet chirping sound echoes through the forests, there were birds everywhere!

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!

On Tuesday 16th December the children in Year 2 held a Christmas Cafe in the school hall. To prepare for the event the children planned menu's, priced items, shopped on-line for groceries, decorated cakes and biscuits and made table decorations. On teh day they took on the roles of waiters and waitresses taking orders, calculating the bill and giving the right change. They provided entertainment, singing and performing to their customers. Parents, Governors and family members attended and the response was fantastic! The children made a profit of £20 which they decided they would like to donate to Alder Hey Children's Hospital in memory of Skye.

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.
