Welcome back to a new year and an exciting new term.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas service and for the generous donations to The Children's Society We hope you enjoyed the wonderful retelling of the Christmas story from the point of view of the Christmas Star and the lovely singing and instrumental performances in the service.
The children made a great start to the spring term last week
There will be a history focus in all the classes this term with children in the Bluebells finding out about the Great Fire of London; the Daffodils about the intrepid men and women who made first flights; the Roses Class will be finding out about the Roman Invasion and Settlement in Britain and the Shamrocks will be studying World War 2 in Oswestry. There will be lots of Mantle of the Expert drama work to bring these historical periods to life.
Of course there will also be the full range of other subjects. Science will be focusing on chemistry ( materials and their properties ) and already the Roses are well in to their DT project making a sling shot car. Teachers have been busy planning great art, RE , PSHE and PE lessons for this term.
This term year 5s will visit Arthog a children take part lots of wellbeing and relaxation activities as part of our Living Well : Sleep Well week at the end of the February half term.
We are all looking forward to a fantastic 2023

Thank you to Morrisons Supermarket for providing prizes for EatWell Week.
And a big 'Thank You' to all parents, carers, pupils and staff for your ongoing support, enthusiasm, kindness and generosity.
We talked about healthy food choices and studied the Eat Well Plate. We talked about healthier bread options and why whole grain is good for our diet. Everyone selected healthy ingredients and made a healthy harvest sandwich which we then shared with parents at our harvest tea.

On Friday our school library was transformed into ‘Cafe Morda’ for a special event which involved the reading champions becoming chefs for the day! The reading champions put on their chef’s hats and false moustaches and chose different genres of books that they thought the pupils in the different classes would like, setting out trays of poetry, biographies, non-fiction and fiction to be delivered to the tables for the visiting classes to sample. Pupils completed a menu plan, choosing a book from each different genre for each course of a meal, with many taking away a new book to read which they hadn’t considered before.
Family members and carers visited the library after school to see the wide range of new books available to borrow and to experience the ‘Cafe’.
Pupils in Shamrocks Class described how they enjoyed the French style of the Cafe and liked trying out new books, especially poetry. Well done Morda reading champions for hosting a great event! Well done Mrs H Jones!! - For more photos please go to the Our Learning Reading page
CLEVER NEVER GOES is the new campaign that teaches children how to stay safe from abduction whether they are outside or online.It’s the modern, child-friendly alternative to the out-dated and fundamentally flawed ‘Stranger Danger’ message. Rather than fearing the worst in everyone they don’t know, Clever Never Goes helps children to recognise specific situations that are unsafe and gives them the tools to respond.
All children attended an assembly today, Thursday 29th September, to launch the campaign.
