Y5 had an amazing day when they designed and created their own team flag, had to collect water from the “reservoir” for their city in a team challenge and had to cross a lava lake by cooperating with each other. After lunch, they made their own team den and then had to experience the ultimate wind and rain survival challenge in which they all got a little bit wet!
World Maths Day at Lum Head
The children had an absolutely brilliant experience on World Maths Day finding out exactly where the fun lies in maths! They took part in activities all around school in mixed age groups. Older children guided younger children, maths lovers passed on their enthusiasm to those less keen and the whole day drove a renewed interest in all things maths.
Poly Bloc Printing
As part of our transition programme Y4 had a fantastic time at the Kingsway school creating poly bloc prints in an art workshop inspired by the artist Craig Martin.
World Book Day
We had great fun dressing up on World Book Day and even had a book swap session which the children loved.
Y2 children had a fantastic day learning how to be Victorian servants. They made scones, scrubbed floors and made beds. We were very proud of how hard they worked.
Well done to all the Year 5 children who created Mayan desserts over the holidays. Y5 had a lovely time sampling each one.
Y5 met high school teachers and children from other primary schools when they visited The Kingsway for samba sessions. The focus was on Rio Carnival and the children played a range of instruments to make a piece of music and joined in with some carnival parade dances as they played.
Y4 took part in a number of fun activities inspired by the work they have done on the Ancient Greeks. They did wreath making, food tasting, Greek dancing and Greek mask making. Their costumes helped to make the experience one the children will not forget!
Our Choir at St George’s Church
Our school choir’s beautiful singing was complemented by the beautiful interior of St George’s church when choir members took part in the Stockport Junior Choir Festival.
Green Fingers in Reception
Children performed for parents at the Dance Showcase at Aquinas College along with schools from the Area. Y5 chose the theme of South America and Y6 chose Technology.
Lum Head in London
Y5 had an amazing visit to London. They enjoyed a rare opportunity to go into the Houses of Parliament and watch some debating in the House of Lords and the House of Commons. They also met our local MP and found out all about her job. They then went on the London Eye for a guided tour of the city. All in all it was a truly incredible experience.
Pizza Making With The Professionals
Year 6 had a fantastic morning at Pizza Express in Cheadle. Children worked with one of their chefs to create their very own pizza. They also learned about the history of Pizza Express and the different ingredients used in their food.
Science at High School
Children had a great time taking part in a science lesson at the Kingsway School as part of our Transition Programme. They enjoyed working in a high school lab and taking part in science experiments.
Anglo-Saxons at Lum Head
Year 5 had a fantastic time building an Anglo-Saxon village on our school field. They made food, created “runes”, played traditional Anglo-Saxon games and sports, and created a range of historic songs and pieces of music.
Diversity Week was a tremendous success! The children really engaged with all the activities on offer at the multiculturaI market and thoroughly enjoyed the insights into culture and identity shared with us by some of the children’s parents.
Author Andy Seed at Lum Head
When Andy Seed spent the day at Lum Head he enthralled the children with his enthusiasm for writing and the world of books. He regaled them with fun stories and poetry and they were very excited to have an author in school and have their new books signed by him. Andy said that if you want to be able to write then you absolutely have to read. He was pleased to see our new library and we are delighted that he has donated some of his books to our library collection.
