We were excited to welcome GB Athlete Tom Lancashire into school this afternoon to lead some energetic fitness circuits with the children and to host an assembly with a Q&A session to help inspire them into doing more sport and exercise.
There are two easy ways to sponsor the children who took part in the fitness circuits today: using paper sponsorship form that your child will have brought home (more spare copies in the office), or just as easy, it takes a few minutes to create an online fundraising page for your child at https://make-a-donation.org/campaign/parkfield-primary-school-athlete-event-m24-4af. Rewards will be given out to children who raise certain amounts of money - including wristbands and signed posters. Part of the money raised will allow the school to buy more sports equipment. The deadline for handing in your sponsorship money is next Wednesday, 16th March 2016.
The whole school enjoyed singing A Certain Kind Of Imagination today along with lots of other schools across the region to celebrate Manchester and its heritage.
Well done to the 40 children in the Parkfield choir that performed at the Rochdale Music Festival today. They sang a total of four songs in two separate competitions against a number of schools across Rochdale. They sang at the beautiful town hall in Rochdale in front of over 300 people. The event was a wonderful experience for all and proved that we have an incredible choir when compared with others across the borough. In both competitions the choir were 'highly commended' scoring 75 and 76 out of 100. The scores prove that with hard work and determination great things can be achieved.
Year 3 have enjoyed learning about and comparing different apps for digital communication.
The choir enjoyed a day out at Manchester Arena to take part in the Young Voices concert. They were part of a huge choir with children from all over the North West. Throughout the day they rehearsed with the conductor and artists from the show. The evening involved performing to over 10,000 people at the arena. The performance was a fantastic experience for all involved and something that they will remember for the rest of their lives!
The whole school enjoyed celebrating this year’s World Book Day and their love of reading by coming to school dressed up as their favourite character and by listening to extracts from books read to them by different members of staff.
Every child in school was also given a £1.00 World Book Day voucher. Theses can be exchanged for one of the eight £1.00 World Book Day books, (you can find out what these are online at www.worldbookday.com/books/ and which booksellers are participating in the scheme) or they can get £1.00 off any book in the Scholastic catalogue they took home tonight.
