Welcome to Templenewsam Halton Primary School

Templenewsam Halton Primary is a happy school with caring relationships at the heart of everything we do.

We aim to grow children, in partnership with parents, who are resilient, able to love and care for others, able to make the right choices and have a love of learning.

We do this by creating a climate of challenge for our children and staff in which it is safe to make mistakes secure in the knowledge that we will all support each other to aim high.

Go Kart Day 2019 small file.mp4

Last week was engineering week. Children across the entire school were set the task of designing and building a Go-Kart. The challenge was to get the Kart to go from the Y3/4 playground to the bottom of the Y1/2 playground in a single push. In order for this to be achieved the children had to work out how they could make their Kart go faster and run smoothly. During the entire week pupils undertook a variety of lessons in order to complete the task. In Science, children learned all about forces including friction and air resistance in an attempt to make their Karts go faster. They carried out tests and investigations and worked scientifically just like real engineers would. When collecting data, many classes used their maths skills to create graphs and charts, measure distances and use accurate timings. As well as all of the science behind the project, children also had to prove their creativity in Art and DT lessons by designing a Go-Kart that looked incredible. Each year took a very different approach with the final Karts presented as Bees, Jungle or Rainforest themed, Back to the Future inspired Deloreans, a Hogwarts Express train, a Pirate Ship and the famous car Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. All of the finished results were stunning with children working very hard to turn their designs into reality. Throughout the week it was great to see all children getting involved and picking up tools to hammer, saw, screw and drill their Kart into a final working vehicle. On the Friday it was then time to test out the finished Karts. Selected drivers from each year group drove their vehicles down our specially created track in as fast a time as possible. It was an amazing morning and a fitting end to what had been a brilliant week. Each year group was then judged against 5 criteria to decide final positions. In an extremely tight competition it ended with Year 2 in 3rd place, Year 1 in 2nd and finally Y5 crowned as overall champions. Well done to all pupils and staff for your hard work and effort.

An 'Actual' Taste of School Life - Year 4 Bake Off

Year 4 have been fully engrossed in their latest learning project which has seen them really 'rise' to the challenge of baking bread. For the project children had to really use their 'loaf' to come up with packaging designs, advertising and market research as well as sampling different types of bread. The task then 'kneaded' the groups to work as a team to create their own bread. 

For the end of the project the classes were joined by two of the Bake Off presenters who had the final say when it came to announcing the overall winners. Children went to great lengths to 'prove' themselves worthy and after much deliberation, the judges finally awarded the star baker to a group who made a very tasty bread containing pepparami and cheese. The judges were partucularly pleased with the overall taste, texture and lack of a 'soggy-bottom'. When asked about their experience Prue and Paul said they were delighted to be involved and after all of the effort put in by the children, being guest judges was the'yeast' they could do!

Templenewsam Halton Primary will soon be getting its own TV News show. Templenewsam TV News (TTV News for short) will be launching in the next few weeks and will be a regular news show reporting on events and stories in school. A specially selected group of Year 5 and 6 pupils have been chosen as the TV news crew and will have a variety of jobs for the show. This includes presenters, reporters, technical crew (filming and editing) and researchers. The shows will be created and posted on the school website (roughly 2 per half term). We are really excited to get started and look forward to finding some interesting news stories from around school. 

At the end of last half term we celebrated Harvest in school. Thank you to everyone who donated food and helped to create a wonderful display for our assembly. We would also like to say a huge well done to everyone who created a scarecrow, your efforts were fantastic. Our vice chair of governors had the difficult task of selecting her favourite 3, which can be seen in the images above.

A Taste of School Life - Y1 get a visit from the Ambulance!

Last half term Year 1 had a visit from a local Ambulance Crew. It was a really exciting day with lots of hands on learning experiences. The children showed a great deal of interest and asked lots of good questions. Now that they are all trained up we will be putting them to work helping the office team with the various bumps and scrapes from playtimes! 

A Taste of School Life: Y4 visit to Murton Park

Year 4 had an amazing educational visit to Murton Park this week as part of their learning about the Anglo Saxons. Children relished the chance to get 'hands-on' with a variety of interesting activities and came back full of exciting stories about the day. Lots of children described it as "The best day ever!" There will be lots of follow up learning opportunities back in school relating to the Anglo Saxon topic and we can't wait to see what the children produce.
