Hannah Smith - Friday, October 02, 2015

Careers Week: 12th October—16th October

In order to make the week possible, we really need your help! You don’t need to be an  astronaut, a doctor or a secret agent – we need to learn about a wide range of careers. If you think that you (or another family member) would be able to help us; by holding a stall at our careers fair, by speaking to a group or by holding a workshop to demonstrate an aspect of your work (uniform, equipment, paperwork etc) please get in touch with Miss Smith or leave your details with the office. The week will not be successful without you!

Let’s Investigate Science Day: Tuesday 6th October

On Tuesday 6th October, children will be taking part in a fun day full of science activities.  Throughout the day  classes will work as teams to take part in different  problem solving activities.  They will also carry out exciting scientific investigations.  For homework this week, we have asked children to have a go at carrying out an experiment at home.  We would love to see photos of this so please send them in! There will be a prize for the best  ‘mad scientist’ photo!  Please note; children are NOT  dressing up for this day so please send them in uniform as usual.


Red, White and Blue Day

Red, White and Blue Day @ Ecclesfield

Red, White and Blue Day is a chance for every school in the  country to show their support for the huge number of  service families in the UK. Service children are brave and adaptable, but they are also often under strain and can be vulnerable.

On 9th October we are asking pupils and staff at Ecclesfield to dress in red, white and blue. This is to help celebrate the 75th anniversary of The  Battle of Britain. During the day the pupils will be  taking part in different learning experiences to help commemorate the day. We are not asking for a donation on this day. If you would like further information on the work of the charity please take a look at their  website:
