Living and Learning – We’re all the same and all different

Posted on Wednesday 10 June 2020 by Mrs Latham

Our Living and Learning learning this week links with the British value of mutual respect and tolerance. We aim to promote empathy and understanding in our school, making it a happy and healthy place to learn. We celebrate diversity and challenge prejudice. We have talked about this with the children who are in school and hopefully you have had discussions after watching the ‘We’re different, we’re the same’ video, which was part of the home-learning this week.

Here are some things that children said in school this week.

People should be treated equally.

It’s not fair when people are treated differently.

We should stand up for what’s right like Rosa Parks did.

We are kind to everyone!

It is good to be different and like different things.

Hello from school!

All the teachers are back in school so we also have some learning from school to share. We are still enjoying seeing what everyone is doing at home still. Please keep sending us photos. We might not be able to respond to emails as quickly as before but we will get round to it!

Get creative with Hello HipHop

Posted on Saturday 23 May 2020 by Mrs Latham

We have been keeping in touch with Phil from Hello HipHop. He has created some blank lettering for our school name and a guide showing how to do some different effects.

It would be nice to have some of your ideas to display on the website and in school. If you would like, you can print this blank lettering and add effects or you can create your own ‘Scholes’ graffiti art with your own lettering. Send your ideas to

Get creative!


Happy and healthy home learning

Posted on Wednesday 20 May 2020 by Mrs Latham

We pride ourselves on being a  happy and healthy place to learn when we are at school. One of our recent tasks has been thinking about how to stay healthy – particularly important at this difficult time. We’ve had some lovely posters that children have designed.

We have also enjoyed seeing the practical maths learning all about fractions. Cutting into thirds was tricky!

We love seeing your creative sides too. Tie-dye is a great skill to learn. What a fab t-shirt!
