Mossley Year 3 / 4 Football Team Winners!
Tag Rugby Saturday 20th April 2013
Mossley Primary School hosted the annual CPSSA Tag Rugby tournament on a sunny Saturday morning. Ten schools from Congleton took part and the whole event was supported by Congleton Rugby Club. The pool matches were all competitive with some close and tense matches. The children displayed amazing skills and showed an excellent understanding of the game. The pool matches were completed and saw teams going through on try difference. The semis saw Mossley Vikings play The Quinta and Buglawton play Black Firs, these were incredibly close matches and any team could have progressed through to the final. The final saw Mossley Vikings play Buglawton, a tense match with brilliant breakaway tries and super defence finally saw Mossley Vikings emerge as winners. Helen Harrison team coach said “ I am incredibly proud of the team and the way in which they played, they have worked hard for this tournament” The organisers thanked Congleton Rugby Club for provided match officials and sponsoring the event.
Here at Mossley we raised awareness of red nose day by asking children to come in wearing 80s themed clothing. Each class was asked to design a member of staff’s leggings which they would then model in the afternoon fashion show. We were all really impressed with the children’s efforts and the day turned out to be a great success!
On Friday 8th March the Children in reception celebrated Mother’s Day by having a tea party. The children wrote their own invites, made cakes and enjoyed sharing their work with their mummy’s. The children also made special place mats with writing about why their mummy is fantastic based on the story by Mick Butterworth. Everyone had a lovely time drinking tea and eating cake.
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.

Mossley School council members met with our governors to find out what a school governor actually does within the school and why we have them. A governor met with them first and informed them of the different roles, after finding this very interesting and informative, the council members then suggested that it would be a good idea to hold an assembly and pass on the information to the rest of the school.
This happened this morning, three of our governors spoke to the children about their roles, the school council members then took them class to class for a question and answer session.

In Year One we enjoyed a fantastic trip for our current toys topic. We visited Englesea Brook Museum on Thursday 24th January to gain an insight into toys from the past and also what life was like in the Victorian times.
We enjoyed a range of activities throughout the day. We watched how they use to print using an old printing press. We then printed our initials using different coloured inks and got to take them home! We also enjoyed watching a Magic Lantern show which was very popular during Victorian times. During the day we got to play outside with some old Victorian toys, these included stilts, skipping ropes, skittles, hula hoops and hoop rolling. Some children from each class enjoyed having a ride on an old Penny Farthing.
The children experienced going back in time to an old Victorian Sunday School. The children learnt how they would only have gone to school on a Sunday and instead they would have been working every day! I think they were all very surprised! The children dressed up in Victorian clothes and were taken back in time where they all met the strict Mrs Fell! During the lesson they used slates to write on and some were picked to be class monitors. We learnt how to add using old shillings and pennies.
Finally we saw a lovely display of lit up lanterns. This was a perfect way to end a very pleasant day. Although it was extremely cold! We have received a lovely email from Englesea Brook who said, “We did enjoy having your classes with us. They were delightful and a great credit to you all and their parents
Hey Ewe! KS1 Christmas Production at Mossley Primary School
The children in KS 1 at Mossley Primary School told the Christmas story in a different way this week! The narrators, Eleanor Lowe, Chloe-Mae Cropper, Benjamin Braisby and Dillon O’Gara guided the audience through the story of Hey Ewe!
A curious sheep (Rosie Beaumont) just knew something special was happening! So she decided to find out more – her flock weren’t interested and just wanted her to go back to sleep. Eventually with the help of the shepherds and the Angel Gabriel (Heidi Sheard) she finds the stable where the special baby has been born. The children were amazing and sang a variety of songs including Hey Ewe! And Calypso Kings. There was two very special moments when two children, Rosie Beaumont and Elliot Browne, performed solos. Helen Harrison Assistant head said” it was a fantastic team effort and the children were amazing – all the parents enjoyed the fantastic show, a huge thank you to the children”
Year 5 & 6 Egyptian day
Year 5 & 6 have had an Egyptian day as culmination of their work on ancient Egypt. The children were asked to dress up as a pharaoh, god, slave, mummy, or treasure hunter.
During the day played senet, a traditional game. They also mummified one another using rolls of paper. At the end of the day they all danced to “Walk Like an Egyptian” on the Wii.
Well done children your outfits were fantastic and a fun day was had by all.
