It has been a very busy term at Cheadle Hulme Primary School and to end a fantastic month filled with festive cheer, we have wrapped up some of the highlights from the past few months!
Pupil Parliament Week:
UK Parliament Week was an opportunity for the children to really immerse themselves in the idea of what parliament/government is and what they can do for us. The topics they spoke in class ranged from everything from naming and identifying different locations in parliament (The Houses of Parliament, Westminster, 10 Downing Street, Houses of Commons and Lords) to debating in class.
Forest School is an educational approach to outdoor learning and is designed to inspire all individuals through positive outdoor experiences. Children can learn about and interact with their natural environment, use their own initiative to solve problems, work closely with others and handle their own risks. Our Forest School Base Camp is located on our school grounds behind the school MUGA. Every academic year, each class at Cheadle Hulme Primary School has a series of Forest School sessions encompassing art and creative skill, as well as bushcraft, den building, bug hunting – usually rounded off by the obligatory hot chocolate!
Each year our pupils really look forward to the nativity and they always embody the characters. Whilst this is an exciting and interactive performance, it is also for our pupils to learn all about advent and the nativity. They all did a fabulous job this year with lots of energy and worked hard learning their lines.
Visit from GM Police:
Year 2 had a visit from Greater Manchester Police, to learn all about their day-to-day job and to explore their theme of ‘heroism’. This was an opportunity for the children to learn and interact and get a real idea about everything the Police do for people all around Greater Manchester.
All the pupils had a fantastic summer day on the inflatables and bouncy castles which we hired. This was a treat for the children and a chance to have fun and play with their friends outside of school times and wear their own clothes.
