Senior Citizens Coffee Morning

Inspired by their recent visit to the Sikh Temple and the importance of community they experienced, Miss Turner and Mrs Ellis, along with help from our Wellbeing Warriors and Year Six hosted our first Senior Citizens' Coffee Morning.  Our guests were welcomed with hot drinks and home made cakes.  They were treated to a quiz, a game of bingo and entertainment.  We hope that our coffee mornings will become a regular fixture on the Silkstone Calendar and help strengthen our community links.

Introducing our new School Councillors and Eco Warriors

Academic Year 2021 - 2022

The Summer Fayre

I think everyone agreed that this Summer Fayre was the best ever.  We all enjoyed all the many stalls and activities on offer.  The barbeque, bar and ice-cream van were extremely popular.  The band, disco and visits from the fire and police services and a demonstration from the Swifts ensured that a wonderful time was had.  Enormous thanks to the PTFA for organising such a brilliant event.

UEFA England vs Austria at Old Trafford.

We had an absolutely brilliant time watching England beat Austria 1-0 in the opening round of the UEFA Women's football at Old Trafford.  

Drama Workshops at the Lowry

As part of our visit to Salford we went to the Lowry centre and participated in drama workshops.  We all really enjoyed them.

The Platinum Jubilee.

We had a wonderful day celebrating Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee.  Our school cooks provided a jubilee lunch which was delicious.  We dressed up in red, white and blue or as princes and princesses and enjoyed jubilee activities.  We participated in a Jubilee concert with each class performing a song or piece of music.  Every child was awarded a commemorative jubilee coin kindly provided by the Parish Council.  It was a day to remember.

Save the Frogs

Inspired by their learning about endangered species in rainforest a group of Year 6 pupils decided to take action and help save the frogs.  They made posters, spoke in assembly to publicise a fundraising cake stall.  There was a variety of delicious cakes, flapjacks and banana bread on sale as well as badges, magnets and bookmarks.  The group raised £165.00 for the charity Froglife.  We are really proud of their fundraising achievements and their commitment to improving our world.  Well done everyone.
