Each year children from Year 5 and 6 are chosen to be Pupil Ambassadors. Children are selected through a recruitment process which involves completing an application form and being interviewed by Miss Leech and Miss Lord.
The children regularly meet with the Pupil Ambassadors from Prospect Vale Primary School, working collaboratively to organise events. At Christmas they produce their Ambassadors’ newsletter which has proved very popular!
The Ambassadors have represented our school at a variety of events including opening the new Sainsbury’s store in Cheadle.
PE and Games
We fund a variety of coaches to enhance our curriculum. Throughout the year all children have the opportunity to work with Dr Welch to improve their basic skills.
We regularly have representatives from local clubs and associations such as Lancashire Cricket Club and PFC working with the children.
This term we have had a specialist dance teacher working once a week with year 5 and 6. We also have one off events such as archery, zumba, lacrosse, cheerleading etc, often as part of our “Sport and Talent Week”.
Miss Brown, a freelance artist, regularly works with our Artisitc Action Team to produce work of the highest standard. Our Artistic Action Team are our Key Stage Two talented artists.
On occasion we work with another local school on joint projects where the children can share skills and ideas.
Ash, our Steel Band teacher is in school each Tuesday and Friday. He teaches groups from each year group throughout Key Stage 2.
Our talented musicians are members of our two performance bands. Our performance bands play at a number of events throughout the year.
Netball Club takes place each Thursday from 3.10pm until 4.00pm.
All children from Years 4 to 6 are welcome to come along and learn the skills and rules of netball. The children have lots of fun playing this fast paced game, whilst at the same time improving their skills of passing, footwork and teamwork. You will play fun games which will help you to improve your skills and raise your fitness levels.
If you don’t already attend why don’t you come along and try it? If you would like to try netball come and see Mrs. Pickering or Mrs. Martin for a consent form.
Cross Country at Wythenshawe Park- 17th September 2016
Cheadle Primary School headed to the first cross-country meeting of 2016/17 at Wythenshawe Park on Saturday with a strong mixture of new and experienced runners. As the sun shone, the excited runners pulled on their Cheadle Primary School vests, eager and proud to represent their school. This season has seen a change to the course so the distances are slightly less to previously, with Year 3/4 completing a distance of 1km and Year 5/6 an impressive 1.6km. The course change has meant spectators and supporters are now able to see the runners for the majority of the time, which further adds to the excitement.
The Year 3/4 girls were first under the starters’ gun to test out the new course. Jessica Foster got off to a flying start and was straight into the leading group which was closely followed by Alexa Billman and Natalie Wright. All 3 showed such determination and strength to maintain their top 10 finishes.
Jessica Foster- 5th
Alexa Billman- 6th
Natalie Wright- 9th
Having watched the girls, it was the Year 3/4 boys who were next to the starting line. It was fantastic to see so many of our new running club members ready to begin their first race. As the boys began, experienced runner Sam Barrow was towards the front of the pack and looked strong as he held his place, finishing fast in an amazing 4th place. Taking part in their first race, Zach Boulahia, Corey Morris, Lewis Rothwell and Caleb Cahalane ran together, with Seth Davis just behind, which helped to encourage one another. They were able to hold their positions and put in a sprint finish to make their race even more successful, especially as they are only just Year 3.
Corey Morris- 26th
Zach Boulahia- 33rd
Caleb Cahalane- 36th
Lewis Rothwell- 38th
Seth Davis- 46th
In the Year 5/6 race, Josie Barrow was our only representative, with many of the Year 6’s missing due to being away on residential earlier on in the week. She was focused on her own run and had her race plan firmly set in her head and got off to the quick start she was hoping for. She held her position and stayed strong to come home in an impressive 9th place; not bad after a tiring few days at Kingswood!
Josie Barrow- 9th
The final race of the morning was the Year 5/6 boys, who had supported and cheered on everyone else. All of our runners were competing at this distance for the first time, though they were still excited and hopeful of getting a good result. As the race began they all made an energetic start, with Toby Guest and Jamie Poole settling into a good pace running together. Taking part in their first race, Ashley McGarrie and Niall Erasmus were determined as they worked their way around the course and still crossed the finish line smiling.
Jamie Poole- 19th
Toby Guest- 25th
Ashley McGarrie- 38th
Niall Erasmus- 39th
With such a successful first race, the next race meeting is the 8th October at Wythenshawe Park, where we are hoping for even more top 20 finishes!
