Welcome to Trumpets!

Welcome to Trumpets Class. We are hardworking bunch of 29 learners supported in our work by Mr Glaister, Mrs Edwards, Mrs Moores & Mrs Potter. We need our P.E. kits in school on Mondays when we do P.E. with the West Lancs Sports Partnership. On Friday afternoons we are taught R.E. by the wonderful Mrs Higson.

A big thank you to our parents, carers and people from home for helping us with our spellings, reading and Times Tables Rock Stars homework which is set on Fridays. 

We know that mistakes happen when we learn and we take a Growth Mindset approach to learning – keep putting in the effort and learning from mistakes and we will succeed! We know the power of the word YET!

Black History Assembly

As part of Black History Month, Trumpets looked at the former NBA player turned psychologist John Amaechi. He recently recorded a few videos about the treatment of black people including discussions about white privilege and the difference between being anti-racist and not racist. These videos were a great stimulus for discussion in class.

Hello Yellow Mental Health Day!

On Friday 9th October we took part in Hello Yellow Mental Health Day and all wore yellow for a donation to charity. We talked about mental health and designed our own mental health superheroes. Please see our pictures below :) 

"120 Challenge" European School Sports Day

Today Trumpets took part in the 120 Challenge to have 120 minutes of exercise in one day! We GoNoodled our socks off and did our usual playing at playtimes and lunchtime. In the afternoon Mrs Higson lead us through more activities and as a school we Go Noodled again over our Celebration Assembly. Phew! We're exhausted!

Our first theme this year is A Kingdom United! We will take a look at the Geography of the United Kingdom and delve deep into the past as far as Anglo-Saxon times to discover how our Kingdom came to be United!
