The Book Bus Came to Visit Our School
The children loved browsing through the books and choosing their favourites to read when the Book Bus came to school.
Maths Puzzle Day
Maths really is fun, as the children found out on our maths puzzle day. They overcame lots of maths challenges and practised collaboration and communication skills, as well as problem solving.
Our Sports Day was well supported and the children did us proud!
The children had an absolutely wonderful time at PGL. The children faced so many challenges and we are so proud of everything they achieved. They took part in raft building, giant swing, trapeze, archery and much, much more. They were excellent representatives of our school and in summary: “We all had an absolute blast!”
Y5 in London – An Unforgettable Day
Y5 had an amazing day in London. They travelled by train and underground and visited the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and Downing Street and even managed to watch the RAF Centenary fly past above the Houses of Parliament – what a day to be in London! The children had an unforgettable day and were a credit to the school.
Lum Head Choir at the Bridgewater Hall
Our choir performed Once Upon a Time by Lin Marsh at the Bridgewater Hall as part of the Greater Manchester Celebration Concert. They represented Stockport alongside other schools. The children also had the opportunity to watch a brass band, jazz orchestra, string orchestra, show choir and wind orchestra perform. What an experience!
Author Visit – Simon Adepetun
We had Manchester born author Simon Adepetun in school to take and assembly and workshops and to inspire the children with reading and writing. They really enjoyed learning about becoming an author and how important perseverence is in all things. They also enjoyed reading his book, ‘The Bee Hive’.
First Aid For Years 5 and 6 With Millie’s Trust
The children had a great day learning basic first aid skill’s with Millie’s Trust. They learned to think about the steps: Danger, Response, Airway, Breathing and Circulation. They discovered how to put someone in the recovery position and how to cope with choking.
Anglo Saxon Day
Year 5 loved their Anglo-Saxon day! Their incredible costumes allowed them to really get into character to build their own Anglo-Saxon village. This was complete with drama, role play, games and even some Anglo-Saxon food treats for them to make and eat.
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.
