School Events 2018/19
Year 6 Tribute to the Great War
Our Year 6 children have put together a fitting tribute to the men of the Great War for Rememberance Day. Each child made 4 clay petals, fired and glazed them and attached leaves with the names of the 30 Mellor men who perished in the Great War.
Lots of children took part in our recent Wizard School here at Forest School. The children passed potions class with flying colours, making potions to make them turn into dragons, grow wings, turn pink and many more, all with some very imaginative potion names.
They learned about what ancient people believed about the different powers certain trees possess and whittled sticks and tied knots to create magical wands and broomsticks.
To finish we made some tasty toffee apples and spiced apple punch around the campfire cauldron.
Our Pupil Parliament had a Q&A session with a member of parliament. Great testing questions on plastic reduction, school funding, healthy drinks and solving the problem of the homeless, all written and presented by our children. Thank you Mr William Wragg MP.
The Great Fire of London
Year 1 having been learning all about the Great Fire of London and have made houses to recreate the streets of London. Parents, teachers and children watched as they were engulfed with spreading flames. Thanks to everyone who came to the Year 1 celebration.
The children enjoyed a beautiful walk to and from Mellor Church to celebrate our ‘Harvest Festival’. It’s lovely for our school to embrace the local church and enjoy the rich landscape on such a day. Thank you to Rev Tracy Ward at St Thomas’ church in Mellor enabling our Harvest Festival to take place. We celebrated the food we eat, through singing, poetry and movement. Well done children and staff.
