Stockport Air Raid Shelter

On Monday 30th January, Year 6 visited Stockport Air Raid Shelter. The children were taken back in time to World War Two. The ‘evacuees’ were shown around the air raid shelter and had the chance to try on gas masks, dress up in World War Two clothing and sing wartime songs. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day.

On Friday 14th October, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service visited Denton West End to talk with Year 6 about keeping safe in autumn.

Safe Squad Trip
Year 6 visited Bennett Street Community Centre to learn about safety. During the ‘Safe Squad’ trip, Year 6 covered digital safety, personal safety and community safety.
Shakespeare
On Thursday 6th October, The Shakespeare Company performed Macbeth to the Year 6 pupils. The children enjoyed the performance and  look forward to studying Macbeth in their literacy lessons.
“I absolutely enjoyed the Shakespeare performance because it taught me so much and I was able to take part in the play” – Thandi Steenveld
“I really liked it because of the acting. It felt like it was actually happening!” – Abigail Hulme
