OUTDOOR LEARNING DAY
We had great fun incorporating the outside into our curriculum…and we didn’t let the wet and cold weather spoil our fun and learning.
MELLOR’S BIG RED BUS
Our children enjoyed eating their lunch on a dinner themed Double Decker Bus this week (The staff enjoyed getting their car-parking spaces back when it left!) Just look at their faces!!

RECEPTION CLASS VISIT STOCKS HALL
Our 4 year olds visited Stocks Hall, our youngest children in school loved meeting the elderly ladies and gentlemen, enjoyed decorating cakes, playing games and reading stories together. It was a great experience for all involved with smiling faces all around.
PSHE WEEK- HEARTSMART, YOGA, MEDITATION
AND FIRST AID
During PSHE week, all the children got involved learning meditation and yoga techniques as well as having a discussion about being yourself and how everyone is different in their own way. We were also lucky enough to have every class learn about basic first aid and all the children took away some very useful tips when it comes to helping someone in need.
ST GEORGE’S DAY
For St George’s Day, the school invited some of the elderly people who live in the local village to come into school and meet some of our amazing children. Both the children and the adults enjoyed a wonderful day in celebration, with adults playing board games, jigsaws and using our virtual reality headsets and the children listening to all the amazing stories they had to tell.
MAKE A WISH CHARITY – STAFF NETBALL
Some of the staff from Eccleston Primary School competed in a charity netball tournament to raise money for the make a wish foundation. After a non-stop, energetic afternoon of netball, Eccleston came away with a trophy- the fair play award (and we didn’t finish last!)
INFANT NATIVITY – A MIDWIFE CRISIS
Well done to our infant children who performed their Nativity, a Midwife Crisis. The children worked incredibly hard and produced some fabulous acting, dancing and singing. Thank you to everyone who supported the shows and for all of your help with costumes and the learning of lines.
ECCLESTON PRIMARY SCHOOL CHOIR
Our wonderful Choir have been in fine form, entertaining the masses recently. They sang at the Christmas Fayre and also more recently at The Fields Community Centre for some of our local residents. The children were as angelic as ever and were a credit to the school.
CRASH LANDING AT ECCLESTON
A strange wreckage billowing with smoke was found on the grass at Eccleston Primary School early this Monday morning followed by tweets the night before from parents and residents, claiming strange sighting and sounds throughout the evening and night before. Scientists have confirmed that a family of Zhdun’s from the planet Flube have crash landed and taken temporary residence in the school. They are a safe, friendly species who must be well looked after. The children will be working hard to ensure that their stay here remains safe, comfortable and short as they build various things including toys, vehicles, clothing and a spacecraft in the hope that we can guarantee a safe passage home.
OUTDOOR LEARNING DAY
What a fantastic day as the children took their learning outside and worked on a host of new skills in our school’s natural environment. We also welcomed Year 5 children from Gaskell Primary School, Bolton who joined in with our day and enjoyed learning with us. I must say a huge thank you to the staff who clearly spent a huge amount of time planning for and resourcing the many wonderful activities and challenges that were on display. A special thanks to Mr Brindle and Mrs Cranage who organised activities and hosted our visiting school. Check twitter out for some of the great things that were happening.
We are in the process of building a climbing wall at the side of school for the children to develop their health, fitness, strength and coordination. There will be different degrees of difficulty making it challenging and above all, fun.
Why not have a go yourself on your way to picking up your child ion the back playground – challenge yourself by just using the green holds!!!
Join us for our Halloween Disco on Thursday, 26th October at 6:30pm – our first without parents, just for children. Dress up and enjoy a spooky dance with prizes and goodies throughout the evening. Becchbuds children also very welcome but we ask that a parent accompanies them.
