Kenya Welcome!! Amazing visit by Mr Gregory and Miss Faulkner - 23 October 2013 - Mr Gregory

Mr Gregory and Miss Faulkner have just returned to England after an amazing 10 days in Kenya. The journey home has just been completed and was a very long 28 hours. The first thing we wanted to do was share our amazing experiences with you. We have plenty of photos of life in African and the wildlife but first of all here is a glimpse of the welcome we got from our fantastic partner school Ngata.

Everyone at Ngata was smiling and welcoming and they all send love!

Ladies & Gentlemen of the Class of '2013...

Wear Sunscreen.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of our advice has no basis more reliable than our own meandering experience. We will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded. But trust me, in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

Don't worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.


Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don't waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements.


Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't.

Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees. You'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much, or berate yourself either. Your choices are half chance. So are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it or of what other people think of it. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do not read beauty magazines. They will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents. They are the only ones you have got. Be nice to your siblings. They're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle, because the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.

Accept certain inalienable truths: Prices will rise. Politicians will be economical with the truth.. You, too, will get old. And when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund. Maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse. But you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair or by the time you're 40 it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the bin, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

Receptions visit to Gladstone Pottery Museum - 19 June 2013 - H Grice

On Thursday 13th June the reception children at Mossley visited the Gladstone Pottery Museum. The children had a tour around the  museum with the oppertunity to watch a potter use a pottery wheel to make a vase. They also watched ladies making delcate flowers out of clay and painting vases. Mrs Dale was fascinated and was extremely tempted to buy one.
The children got to have look round the old brick kilns the children were fascinated. We loved going round the museum looking for tiles with pictures of animals on and we even found one with a Hare and Tortoise on. The children then learnt how to make a tortoise out of clay and we brought them back to school. We had such a fantastic day and learnt so much about the history of the Potteries.

World Book Day - 07 March 2013 - H Grice

World Book Day 

The children and staff have enjoyed a day wearing our PJ's for world book day. Our theme was bedtime stories, the children brought in their favourite bedtime reading books and teddies .


We spent the day designing and making books, book covers & book marks. In year 5 Mr Johnson's class they designed "How to" books eg 'How to change your parents into chocolate', 'How to teach an elephant to skip' and 'How to teach a monkey to dance'. Year 2 Miss Smith/Mrs Newport's class made a large class story book.


KS1 Parents were invited to a fun phonics session in the afternoon and were served with tea and cakes.
