Year 5 Contest Winners Get To Meet Famous Author 

Some of our year 5 pupils are feeling very lucky since they won a contest to meet Terry Deary, the author of The Horrible Histories books, in 'Bolton Museum's new Egyptian exhibit'. This fabulous opportunity was only open to one class in the whole town.

 

To win, pupils had to create a piece of work that would convince Terry that they were big fans. You can see the winning movie below.  At the event on Monday he told students gruesome stories from Edwardian, Viking and Tudor times, sang songs, told jokes and spoke to the pupil's about his inspiration for being a writer. He also revealed that he hasn't led a workshop for school children for over 20 years, so the pupils were extra privileged to attend the workshop. 

A great day out was had by all at the 'Autumn half term holiday club'. Who went orienteering and had a picnic in Queen's park. Everyone went home exhausted but happy.

Family Breakfast is held every half term. We have a delicious breakfast and all our families are welcome to join their children. Check the newsletter to see when our next one is coming up and please join us. 

Creative Writing Day

Pikes Lane were proud to host the ‘North West Gifted and Talented Creative writing day’ on Saturday 6th October. A selected number of students from years 4,5 and 6 were lucky enough to work with Alan Gibbons. Alan has published over 75 books in his career, and has won prestigious awards for his writing.

The children were tasked with creating a story about a time machine, they used their imagination and creativity to form their own time travel story.  Each child then created a fact sheet about their time machine, and finished the day by creating a poem incorporating similes.

We had a wonderful day, thanks to Alan and all the children involved.
