Have you heard about our new Phiz Lab?

We’ve been busy for weeks converting a classroom into a dedicated science lab, so that the children of Lowerplace can get hands-on in their science lessons, and we’re delighted to announce that today is the grand opening!  The Phiz Lab has been made possible by the funding and support of The Odgen Trust which is a charitable trust set up to promote the teaching and learning of physics.

Sir Peter Ogden will be joining us later today to declare the Phiz Lab open, and he will be visiting classes around school to see how we teach science at Lowerplace.

We already had some exciting visitors this morning – a crew from BBC Radio Manchester arrived to interview our Science Lead Teacher, Mr Lowe, and two of our budding young scientists, Thomas and Tayba.

Christmas Fair fundraising!

We want to say a massive thank you to all of the fantastic parents who ran our Christmas Fair in December, and to all the pupils, staff and families who visited to make the event such a success.

We managed to raise an amazing £1,198.31 for school funds!

Christmas Tree Assembly

Lowerplace Christmas Tree Assembly 2017

On Monday the 04 Dec, the pupils of Lowerplace invited some special friends to help them decorate their Christmas trees. Santa was accompanied by Rudolph and other members of Santa’s Christmas Crew.

Both KS1 and KS2 pupils had taken time to create their own special hand crafted decorations, to be hung on the tree while the children sang Christmas Carols. 

All the pupils sang with enthusiasm and cheered as Santa and Rudolph distributed gifts and chocolatesA wonderful time was had by all and both trees now look amazing. A BIG well done to the children for the brilliant decorations and for welcoming the start of Christmas to Lowerplace for 2017.
