Our Whole School Topic this term is:

'Are we nearly there? (yet)! ' 

...and as you can imagine our focus will be on Journeys

We had a busy Friday this week when Year 5 enjoyed a very muddy afternoon at Forest Schools and Years 5 and 6 tried Yoga. 

  

Another free book this week... this time for Reece. He's collecting 'Horrid Henrys', well done! 

 Well done to Cody who recieved her 'free' book this morning for reading regularly at home

 

Welcome back to the Spring Term. It was lovely to hear all about your exciting Christmases from the children today!

SWIMMING This term all the children in Lilac will be swimming alongside year 4 and year 5, this way we can make best use of the pool facilities. 

RESPECT Year 6 Lilac pupils will continue to be included in groupings for the 'RESPECT' programme with Winsford Fire Service, by the end of the Summer term all our Year 6 children will have attended in one of the four groups. 

VISITS We will be attending trips and visits alongside our Year 5 and 6 classmates, so please remember to keep a check on the calendar too. We also hope to go back to Rosie's farm in February / March, as soon as Rosie lets us know when the new lambs are due. 

Our Spring newsletter will be uploaded shortly.

What a very busy end to the Autumn term we have had. Check out our blogs as well, but here are just a sample of pictures of things we have been up to!

 

Parents staff...and the children of course.. had a great time at Christmas crafts 

  

We had a very special visitor ... with a bag full of goodies, thank you. 

 

We enjoyed the pantomime at Northwich, Christmas dinner with our friends, Christmas parties in our classes, taking part in Christmas productions (in school and at the Lifestyle Centre) Christmas crafts,  Christmas maths.... a special visitor..and lots lots more!

Merry Christmas to our children and their families, lets hope 2018 brings more special events. With very best wishes from Lilac Team, Mrs  Elaine Capper, Mrs Camille Phillips, Mrs Debbie Hughes and Mrs Jez Matthews x

Welcome also to Sophie and Jack who have told us they like being in Lilac, which is always a good start! 

We had a special visitor in class this week when Pudsey came to join us. Well done to Connor who worked out that we had over 800 spots between us!

We are now making our new classroom our new 'home', it's a lovely big new room, plenty of space for learning !

This early in the term we have already said goodbye to someone... Ms Webster left this week and we had a special 'baby shower' for her. It was lovely to have three of our 'Seedlings' join us for our party too. We wish Ms Webster all the best with her new arrival (very soon x).
