Year 6 spent the afternoon at Cheadle Fire Station enjoying the ‘Safe and Sound’ event which gave them plenty of ideas of how to keep themselves and others nice and safe.
The children enjoyed learning about: fire safety; healthy and unhealthy relationships; keeping money safe from 'scammers'; the dangers of anti-social behaviour; and how to deliver CPR.
Thanks to all who were able to support our wonderful Year 6 with this very important life information.

Love to learn, love God, love one another.
Huge thanks to all for your generosity and wonderful donations towards 'Children in Need'. We fund-raised in school through our non-uniform day and at our Y3/4 Tea Dance, and also by singing at Morrison's supermarket on Wednesday.
We raised a brilliant £233.49!
Seeing so much care for others is something which lives within our school motto of 'Love to learn love God, love one another', and yet again we are feeling immensely proud of the children's care and desire to help others to have a better life.
...love one another.
The school hall turned into our very own Blackpool Tower ballroom as we hosted a Y3/4 ‘Strictly Tea Dance’.
Parents, grandparents, carers and other family members joined the children to watch them dance and were then also taught a few moves from the Cha Cha Cha, Waltz and Jive by the children!
It was a pleasure to also welcome Devon and Gracie from Leek School of Dance who joined us to give the children and other guests a brilliant Ballroom and Latin demonstration.
Our tea dance was a celebration of dance and PE and was the conclusion of a day-long training course for teaching staff from our school and others, led by P.E. Consultant (and parent) Mrs Holder. Many thanks for the great support and delicious cakes which also helped to raise money for ‘Children in Need’.
We are delighted to share the exciting news that our friends at The Cheadle Academy have been undertaking something amazing for a very special cause.
On Friday 15th November, The Cheadle Academy Sixth Form Choir released their charity single 'My Oh My', which has been recorded in conjunction with Staffordshire University and the Dougie Mac Hospice.
The choir have been operating for two years and have, to date, raised an incredible £22,000 in memory of the school's wonderful former Senior Assistant Principal, Craig Beverley, who sadly passed away three years ago. We are proud that a number of former pupils from our family of schools have also been involved and, as a Trust, we fondly remember working with Craig.
The song, which is one from Craig's old band (he was a talented musician), can be purchased through iTunes, or for more information, visit:

Through the link, there are also numerous stories and videos of the progression of the choir over the last 18 months in the build up to the single release.
Good luck and we think that what you are doing is incredible!
A tuneful group of children showed off their lovely singing voices when performing in a Cheadle supermarket today, and raised funds for a wonderful cause.
The boys and girls from Years 5 and 6 sang a number of songs to help to raise money for 'Children in Need' and with it, entertained shoppers and staff alike.
We are very proud to see the children showing so much care for others which really captures the '...love one another' aspect of our school motto.
Huge congratulations to our 'ace' Y3/4 tennis team for 'serving up' a brilliant performance in the CADSSA/ School Games championships.
Cheered on by parents and staff (who made a 'racquet'!), the two girls and two boys 'court' everyone's imagination with their determination and enjoyment of the games.
The foursome finished in a wonderful third place in the tournament and we are very proud of them.
Move over Rafa, Martina, Bjorn and Serena!
Children in our lovely Reception Class are enjoying a training programme to help them to develop their skills of riding a bike.
The boys and girls are practising their skills using balance bikes and, each week, will continue to master the art of cycling. The sessions will not only help them to develop their skills, but also their confidence and awareness of how to be safe on a bike.
Who knows, maybe we could be seeing the beginnings of the next Chris Froome or Laura Kenny!
The St. Werburgh's family were extremely proud to be part of the Armistice Day service at the Kingsley Cenotaph in remembrance of the fallen heroes of our villages.
Our representatives showed such beautiful respect at this very special event, and as well as laying our very own school wreath (made using handprints of our Year 2 children), and that of the Kingsley Kingfishers; some children also planted crosses and read the names of soldiers from Kingsley, Kingsley Holt, and surrounding areas, who served and sadly lost their lives.
The rest of our school family joined together in a very special service in the school hall to remember, and to give thanks to the brave soldiers and animals who fought in World Wars and other conflicts to help us to have the lives we enjoy today.
We Will Remember Them.
Children (and staff!) have been Rock Stars today to celebrate their learning in Maths and in particular the 'Times Tables Rock Stars' program.
Through the program, children improve their recall of the multiplication tables and the related division facts, which will help them to continue to progress as fantastic mathematicians/ Maths Rock Stars!
Trust Maths Leader, Mrs Bloor, added: "It is great to see how much enthusiasm the children/rock stars have for the program and the excitement in learning which this is generating."
