We were very lucky to have a visit from Senshi Kai Karate Club, Dukinfield who demonstrated the types of training young children enjoy at the club. Karate develops:
- Strong mind : Focus, concentration and self-discipline. Increases self-esteem
- Strong Bodies: Exercising, regular sleep pattern, increase in oxygenated bloods to increase healthier body and increases serotonin so helps increase mental health mindfulness.
As usual we have a lot of exciting trips and special events happening in school. Here are the letters, just in case you have missed one:

Well done to our KS2 Super Learners! These pupils have shown a great attitude towards their learning!
A number of parents are sharing a Facebook post asking for advent calendars to be donated to St Marys Community Food Bank…. It’s the one that you support with your Harvest gifts. There are families all over Denton who are struggling because of austerity and cuts but it’ll be really tough at Christmas in particular. If you’d like to donate an advent calendar or even a selection box please drop them off at school and we’ll deliver them to St Marys Church.
It’s a great cause and certainly helps the children and families in our own community.
The children have had individual and sibling photographs taken at school today. Orders must be returned by Thursday 30th November at the latest in order to guarantee delivery for Christmas.
Thank you for supporting the Poppy Appeal. We raised £162.84 for the Royal British Legion.
We are really pleased to announce that St Mary’s Church, Haughton Green, will be running a special Christmas Craft Club. This is a free family event!
This is likely to be very popular so please collect your tickets from the school office as soon as possible.
Thank you to everybody who supported our fundraising this week. The children looked absolutely amazing both in their crazy odd socks and spotty, bright outfits.
The School Council are very proud to announce that the school community raised almost £400! Brilliant! This will be shared equally between the Anti-Bullying Alliance and Children in Need.
CHILDREN IN NEED
On Friday 17th November we will be joining in with the fun by raising money for Children In Need. Children may wear their own bright clothing, the spottier the better!
We are asking for a £1 donation. All money raised will be split between Children in Need and the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
ANTI-BULLYING WEEK- 13th–17th November 2017
Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages everyone to take action against bullying. The theme this year is ‘All Different, All Equal’ which celebrates uniqueness.
We would like all children to wear ODD SOCKS on Tuesday to celebrate the fact that we are all different and all equal. During the week the children will be learning about the importance of being valued and included in school life without fear of bullying.
It was a very busy and very successful first half term. Read our newsletter to find out more about our activities. Dates for the next half term are also on this newsletter.
