Chris Green MP

Today, KS2 were given a wonderful opportunity to listen to Chris Green, the local MP for Bolton West, and ask him questions in preparation for our Parliament Week.

Children asked some excellent questions, such as, “How do you convince someone to agree with your argument?”

He was very enthusiastic and was an excellent speaker. Thank you for your visit!

Why was Stonehenge built?

In class on Tuesday we looked into the mystery of Stonehenge: why was it built, how did they build it and why did they build it where they did?

We started by looking at where the stones came from and the children were a little confused why they would drag stones all the way from Wales. Sami asked, ‘Why wouldn’t they just build it in Wales?’

Then the children stared to dig into reasons that historians have considered to be the reason why Stonehenge was built.

The children decided that they thought Stonehenge was built to measure when the summer and winter solstice occur.

Welcome to our school blog!

Our  blog will be updated regularly with information about school events, examples of children’s learning and also additional work and support for children at home.
Our class blogs provide our children with a real audience and purpose for writing, as well as sharing photos of the learning we undertake.
Please feel free to comment and give us feedback on any of our posts.
Your comments will be monitored before going live and then will be shared with the children.

Singing at the Bolton Music Festival

Our school choir did Devonshire Road Primary School proud by singing their hearts out to some wonderful songs for the Bolton Music Festival. Their brilliant performance of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” was powerful and heart-felt; Miss Diggle, Miss Gent and Mrs Hall were proud to be there. The choir have worked so hard this year, and we would like to thank all the parents and carers for supporting their children with this event.
