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.

The Victorians

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.


The Mayans

Well done to all the Year 5 children who created Mayan desserts over the holidays.  Y5 had a lovely time sampling each one.


Fairytale Ball
Reception children had a fabulous time at their Fariytale Ball and they wore some fantastic fairytale outfits.  The ball was to augment all the work they have been doing on fairytales.

Transition for Y5
As part of our transition programme Y5 spent an afternoon in the art department at the Kingsway School.  They created intaglio printing plates referencing the work of British printmaker Angie Lewin.

Defending Like a Roman!
What well trained Roman soldiers our Y4 children made when they visited Chester to find out about how the Romans lived and worked.  They used their shields to great effect when they created a tortoise formation just like a Roman army.


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.

How the Earth is Made
Y3 learned about the earth’s different layers as part of their Geography topic on Volcanoes.  They loved making their replicas out of playdough. 


Musicians’ Concert
Our brass and ukulele players gave a wonderful concert for parents today.  They showed off all the musical skills they have mastered and parents were delighted. Here they are warming up just before the performance began.

Greek Day

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.


Lum Head Stall at Gatley Lights Switch On  
Friends of Lum Head held a fundraising stall at Gatley Lights Switch On.  They sold Christmas cards designed by Lum Head children which proved very popular.  Thank you to the Friends and thank you to our wonderful card designers.

Learning About The Plague
Y5 visited the plague village, Eyam, in Derbyshire to find out what it was like to live in a village cut off from the world because of The Plaque.  They toured the village and visited the plague cottages, the church and the graveyard before seeing all the exhibits in the museum.


It was nice to see people getting together for a cake and a chat at our Macmillan event and thank you also for all the tasty cake donations.  Together we raised £173 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Making Music
Our trumpet and ukulele players are making great strides in their musical acomplishments and having lots of fun learning how to play an instrument.

50 Years!

Mini Beasts 
Reception had a wonderful time learning about the creatures that inhabit our planet and some were even brave enough to handle a snake!

Green Fingers in Reception
The children have now picked their potatoes!  They planted them, looked after them, and now they’re going to eat them!  They have had such good fun learning how to grow food throughout the year. 

Schools Linking at Longdendale in the Peak District 
Y6 Residential
Year 6 had a fantastic time at PGL. We faced our fears with courage and enthusiasm, supporting each other along the way. During the week we had a go at raft building, aeroball, abseiling, the zip wire, the giant swing and many more challenges. We learnt new songs around the campfire and giggled endlessly for three days!

Dance Showcase

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

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.
