Mrs Hilton Le has just found out that Mr B (who regularly enhances our Science Days) is posting daily 15 minute History lessons. Today’s lesson is about The Stone Age so perfect for any Year 3 children out there.
Please check him out, his lessons are on his Facebook page ‘Balestra School Workshops’. I have posted the link below too.
Today our school choir took a trip to the Ellesmere centre to perform the songs that we have been learning this term. The children sang their hearts out for an hour to help raise money for Walkden Rotary Club. The children were an absolute credit to the school and overcame nerves to sing beautiful in front of the busy shopping centre. Every single member of the choir should be incredibly proud of how hard they have worked this term and how quickly they have learnt some very tricky songs.
Next Tuesday (the 18th December) , the choir will be performing a concert starting at 3:30pm in the Junior Hall. Everyone is welcome to come along and listen to our fabulous choir show off how talented they are. There may even be a mince pie or two!
Yesterday, Peel Hall Primary School sent two teams to the Manchester United Football Tournament. The Year 2 team played extremely well and, even though most were new to the game, they won a few matches. They tried really hard and never gave up.
The Year 3 team had a rollercoaster of emotions through the competition. It was magnificent and frustrating in equal measure. The team played 7 matches in a league against all other teams. They won 6 and drew 1, finishing top of the league by quite a distance. They qualified for the final against a team they had already beaten in the league. Unfortunately, things did not go for us in the final and we lost 4-3. Although they were devastated, they were a credit to the school and had three players from the team identify by Manchester United for trials. A special mention should go to Denley Partington who, although only in Year 2, played in goal for the Year 3 team.
After the tournament, both the Manchester United staff and the event organiser said that we were the best behaved team with the greatest sportsmanship.
