Children in Need

 Our fundraising day for Children in Need was a fantastic success.  Thank you to everyone who has given so generously to this worthy cause.


Well done to Hope, Zain and August who were voted for the top prizes for the cake competition and to Mrs Dobsonand the School Council for organising such a fun week of activities. 

Music for the Many Orchestra

Our budding musicians have been working incredibly hard again this year with the Music for the Many team to learn a range of instruments.  They showcased their talents at Todmorden High School for an evening performance with the orchestra made up of musicians from different schools in Todmorden.  It was a wonderful event, offering our children more opportunities to play for a wider audience.  Well done to everyone involved!

Todmorden Hippodrome Christmas Tree Competition

We have enjoyed making lots of handmade decorations for this years Christmas Tree Festival.  We are proudly raising money for Music for the Many as our chosen charity.  

Year 2 Multi-skills interschool competition winners

Year 2 were worthy winners of the Todmorden Schools Multi-skills event this week.  Not only did they show what great sports skills they have, but also showed our RAINBOW Values of Never Giving Up, Independence and Believing in Yourself.  They were wonderful team mates too, cheering and encouraging everyone to try their best.  Well done to you all!

Walsden Scarecrow Festival

We were delighted to take part in this years Scarecrow Festival, making our wonderful entry of Sponge Bob and Patrick.  We were pleased to find out we had come runners up and won £50 for school funds.  Well done to the children, Zoe and India for your hard work, team work and creative ideas.  

Todmorden Carnival

Our school was inspired to get creative in this community event, when we went all out to decorate and ride on an 'artic lorry' through the town as part of the carnival parade.   We loved dressing up as Woodland Folk and cheering and waving at the crowds.  It really was a magical day, made even more special by winning the prize for the best school entry and float.   

A huge well done and thank you to everyone who took part and especially Mrs Morrison for helping to organise it all!

Todmorden County Fair

We have enjoyed another year of success at the County Fair, where we showcased our  arts and crafts talents.  Well done to all the children who had their work entered and to our winning entries.  A further well done for being the winning school entry as well!

Well done to everyone who got involved and to Mrs Dobson and Zoe for organising it all!
