Well done to our netball team who won their match against St Anne's Lydgate this week, 14:3! We are very proud of each and every member of the team! Thank you to Mr. McQuillan and Mrs. Eglin for organising the team and supporting them with training.
Oldham Football Finals
Our school football team represented us today in the Oldham Athletic Kids Cup Finals. The team were, as always, a credit to school. They supported one another well and demonstrated high levels of determination and resilience. Unfortunately, an overall win wasn’t to be but the team did win two of their three matches. We couldn’t be prouder. Thank you to Mr. Freeman for supporting the team.
DLP Netball League
This week our netball team played in the decider match for the league trophy. The team played at home against St. Mary's Greenfield and unfortunately lost 6:9. We are extremely proud of the way in which the team has conducted themselves this season. Thank you to Mr. McQuillan and Mrs. Eglin who have organised and refereed matches in order to make sure we can compete.
DLP Netball Rally
Well done to out netball team who recently took part in the Dovestone Learning Partnership netball rally. The team won their mini-league and went on to play in the semi-finals against other DLP schools. The team looked great in their new kit and the hoodies, funded by the FOF. The team came fourth overall. Thank you to Mr. McQuillan and Mrs. Eglin for supporting the team.
Dovestone Learning Partnership Writing Workshop
The collaborative literacy project was the first to be ran by the DLP. Pupils and staff from Saddleworth School went to visit all the schools in partnership to inspire the children’s imagination for a poetry competition. We were very lucky to have a winner here at Friezland.
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

Gotta Dance Competition 2018
Our Street Dance Super Stars in Years 1, 2 and 3, represented Friezland at the Oldham Gotta Dance Competition. The girls performed their routine in front of an audience and were up against six other Oldham Primaries. 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.

We are delighted to announce that we have maintained our Gold School Games Mark Award for the 4th year. This is awarded for our contribution to school PE and Sport.
