A very warm welcome back to school.
Before the autumn break, the school was certainly very busy with a whole host of exciting activities both inside and outside of the classroom.
By all accounts, the Year 3 children had a super Scandanavian experience at the Dane Law Centre where they had a great deal of fun pretending to be Vikings for the day. Hopefully, one day, I'll get the opportunity to join them on the school trip and sample the experience too.
Over the last few weeks, Year 6, Year 5 and Year 4 have performed in front of parents and members of their family. Without doubt, each class produced a fantastic performance showcasing a wide range of class work which made a lot of people, including myself, very proud to be associated with Cams Lane. Each and every one of the children demonstrated an abundance of skill and talent - well done children and the staff involved.
On behalf of the Porch Box Project, can I say a huge thank you for your Harvest contribution. The support and food aid given by the children and parents was staggering and a true demonstration of our school community's charitable understanding for people less fortunate than ourselves - Well Done EVERYONE!
The tree has been ordered, Christmas dinner has been planned and the Key Stages have chosen their Christmas performance titles - Christmas is on its way! It is probably one of the nicest times of the year in any school and I am eagerly awaiting our performances and of course, the mince pies!

The past few weeks have certainly been an eventful period at Cams Lane Primary School and I would like to take this opportunity to show my appreciation.
I would like to publicly thank all the staff and volunteers for their continued hard work and dedication to the school, working tirelessly in ensuring that the education given to your child is of the highest standard.
On behalf of the children, staff, parents and Governors, I would like to thank Mr Stuckey for his continued hard work, both in and out of school over the last 18 months. Unfortunately, he will be leaving the school on Friday 24th May to take up a teaching position in Rochdale. Everyone at Cams Lane wish him all the very best for the future.
On a brighter note, both Miss Halliwell and Mrs Black will be returning from maternity leave. Miss Halliwell will be returning to school on the 1st of July followed by Mrs Black on the 18th of July.
Without question, the children in school have been ‘fantastic!’ Throughout the year, they have worked extremely hard either in class, or when they have represented the school during out of school activities.
As always, the children in Year 6 have worked extremely hard in preparing for their SATs and I am sure they will make both their parents and the school very proud. The continuous hard work and perseverance by the children, Mrs Cooper, Mrs Coffey and Mrs Cobb has been impressive and will surely enable the children to make a great start at their chosen High School.
Year 5 have been extremely busy this term and very successful too. The Rotary Club of Radcliffe organised a competition entitled ‘People and Places’. Each school in Radcliffe was invited to celebrate the Radcliffe area in a range of media – Mr Pickup chose ‘performance poetry’. I believe the competition was very strong but our Year 5 proved how fantastic they are and were placed a creditable 2nd place.
Year 5 are not only super poets, they can dance too! On Tuesday 21st May, they participated in the Derby High School ‘Dance Festival’ performing a super rendition of ‘Happy Feet’. Every child played their part especially well, performing to the highest standard – they were a credit to the school and their parents. Well done Year 5 and to Mr Pickup!
Without doubt, the final half term will be equally as busy, and I am sure your support will be unquestionable.
Finally, can I take this opportunity to wish you all a sunny and restful half term holiday.
