After careful consideration, due to the adverse weather conditions and for health and safety reasons, school will be closed tomorrow, Friday 2nd March. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of the children and staff, and also yourselves, is vital.

Due to the severe weather conditions, school will open at 10am this morning. BREAKFAST CLUB WILL NOT BE OPEN THIS MORNING. Many of our staff have long distances to travel to reach school and, whilst the weather may not be too bad in some areas, the snow is causing many staff difficulties getting there.  We cannot open school and keep the childen safe if we do not have sufficient staff.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but the safety of everyone is important and a delayed start is preferable to closing school completely. We thank you for your cooperation in this.

FS2 and KS1 Nativity

This week our youngest children presented the story of Jesus’ birth to us in the most special and magical way. It was hard to believe some of these little ones are still only four years old! We were presented with enthusiastic singing along with beautiful dancing and such clear, strong narrators. It was wonderful to see how full church was and we thank you for the support you showed the children. Well done to everyone who helped make this such a memorable occasion.

Advent at Sacred Heart

On Wednesday evening, KS2 presented a lovely version of the Nativity. There were  beautiful dances which some of the Y6 girls had helped to put together. These girls then also helped and encouraged the children in other classes when learning the dances.

There was beautiful singing which began with a fabulous solo -well done!

The text, which was read out so clearly by all the narrators, had been entirely written by the children themselves. It was thoughtful and demonstrated their deep understanding of the important events leading to the birth of Jesus.

Thank you to those of you who were able to join us on the night; your support means a lot to the children and staff.

On Thursday afternoon we held our Advent Showcase and it was great to see how many of you were able to join us once again. We hope that you enjoyed looking at all the children’s work and to hearing them sing.

We look forward, now, to the KS1 Nativity which is next week.

Harvest Service

A huge well done to all the children for such a wonderful Harvest Service on Friday. There was some fabulous singing, readings, poems and prayers. Special thanks must go to those parents and carers who so generously donated food items which have now been passed on to Sacred Heart Food Bank and St Wilfrid’s. It was lovely to see so many people join us and we hope everyone enjoyed the service.

Journey to the Cross

On Maundy Thursday, the children presented Christ’s Journey to the Cross. The children themselves, wrote and prepared the script, which was accompanied by some beautiful singing, mime and readings. We hope that all those who were able to join us on the day were able to reflect on the events of Holy Week as the children presented the story with such reverence and respect.

Science Week 2017

What a fantastic week it has been at Sacred Heart this week! From erupting volcanoes to square-shaped bubbles, elephant toothpaste to mad professors, we’ve seen it all this week! All the children enjoyed a visit to Manchester Museum of Science and Industry as well as hosting an Open Morning for parents and carers to come and join in the fun! 🙂 Special thanks must go to Mrs Barden, our Science coordinator, who has spent the past eight months planning Science Week.

We would also like to extend  huge thanks to the many parents, carers and friends who have supported the children in any way this week. 👍🏻

Here are just a few pictures from Science Week; check out the individual class blogs for lots more.
