TMPF Music Teacher, Mr Prescott, is delighted to invite all members and friends of the school family to join the new season of the Cheadle Community Choir, which starts again on Thursday October 3rd, 4.30-5.30pm, in its new home of our sister school, Bishop Rawle C.E. (A) Primary.
The choir is FREE to all and promises to be fun, relaxing and can even make people happy! It comprises of parents, grandparents, aunts/ uncles, staff and friends of children at any of the local Primary and High Schools and friends from the local community.
The entire school and TMPF family wish the wonderful Mrs Welford the best of luck in her well-deserved retirement.
We send you the very best wishes and thank you for your expertise and care.
Term dates for the academic year 2019-2020, including the change to the May Day Bank Holiday, can be found here.
Around 100 children from each of the five schools in The Moorlands Primary Federation joined together to sing and play in the first TMPF Music Concert.
Our young musicians joined performers from each of our TMPF sister schools to wow the large audience with their musical talents. Some of the children have been playing for a few years and some for a few months - each showing their lovely musical skills.
Class One have been very busy learning to look after their chicks. The first one arrived on Tuesday 19th March looking tiny and a bit bald, but by the next morning it was lovely and fluffy and had been joined by two more! Every day there have been more and more chicks, and we now have 16! As the chicks grow stronger, they move into a bigger cage in the classroom with a special heat lamp, called a brooder. The children have been learning about animal husbandry,feeding, handling and hygiene. They have also been learning about the seven different breeds that we have including Cuckoo Marans, Lavender Leghorns, Araucana and Gold Laced Barnevelder!
Say Hello to our two new kids, Pygmy goats Colin (named by Mr Eccles!) and his sister, Nibbles. Like all new kids, they were a bit nervous at first but they soon settled in and are now loving life on the Dilhorne Farm!
Each of the five sister schools within TMPF were delighted to join friends from Cheadle Primary School and participate in a basketball event staged by The Cheadle Academy (TCA).
Four boys and four girls took part in the celebration of sport, which began with a skills session and concluded with an exciting tournament.
Throughout the morning, every child had a chance to develop their understanding of the game and play competitively against one another. It was a great opportunity to make friends and try a new sport… whilst maybe beginning a journey towards the NBA!
The closely-fought event was eventually won by our TMPF friends at St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary. Congratulations to all who took part and to Mrs Evans and the wonderful Sports Leaders from TCA who led the event and doubled up as coaches.
Pupils from Dilhorne Endowed C.E (A) Primary visited the local cenotaph to pay their respects to those brave men and women who fought for their country and to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I. The children sang beautifully and read the names of those sadly lost in conflict.
We Will Remember Them.
On Armistice Day, a group of children from Dilhorne Endowed C.E. (A) Primary joined Parishioners, Councillors and members of their community at Dilhorne Recreation Centre for a special commemoration to mark 100 years since the end of World War I.
The event culminated with the children singing and the Lord Lieutenant lighting a Beacon at 7pm, as part of a very special act of unity and remembrance with other villages and towns.
We Will Remember Them.
Members of the Dilhorne Endowed C.E. (A) Primary School Worship Council were delighted to join friends from their sister school, St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary School and new friends from Hanley St. Luke's Primary, at a religious retreat in Dovedale, organised by the Diocese of Lichfield.
The group of six boys and girls from Dilhorne visited Dovedale House in Ilam for the 24 hour retreat and worked with staff from the Diocese of Lichfield, including the wonderful Bishop Geoff, to explore how they could bring a sense of the wonder and awe of God into the worship which the Council will plan and lead in school.
