Dovestone Learning Partnership Writing Workshop

International Day of Happiness
As part of the International day of Happiness, our schools Health Champions planned a ‘pass a smile’ assembly, created a ‘Wall of Happiness’ and asked everybody to wear an extra item to school that would make people smile. Every child in the school wrote a message for the ‘wall’ to show what makes us happy, then everybody in the school joined hands to pass on a smile.
Fair Trade Afternoon Tea
We were very lucky to be visited by the Mayor of Oldham at our Fair Trade Afternoon Tea in March. Staff and families baked cakes to help raise money for the school. Over £400 was raised from the event.Well done #TeamFriezland

They held their nerve and went on to WIN the competition bringing back a large piece of silver wear for our Friezland collection! We are all extremely proud!
Poet Ian Bland
We were very lucky to be visited in school by published poet, Ian Bland. He performed a number of his poems to the whole school with the assistance of both our pupils and staff. He then spent the rest of the day holding a workshop with each class. They produced their own versions of one of his poems and a selection were performed at the end of the day in a special celebratory assembly.
