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. 

A Taste of School Life: Harvest

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. 

A Taste of School Life: Art Exhibition 2018

On Thursday 5th July Templenewsam Halton held an Art Exhibition. The school based gallery showcased a range of different art from across the whole school including paintings, drawings, sculpture, wood carving and digital art. The event was a great success and we would like to say well done to all of the children in school for their amazing efforts and a huge thank you to all parents who were able to visit the exhibition.  

Thank you to all of our pupil helpers who gave tours of the galleries, served refreshments and even enhanced the Year 2 Beach installation with a spot of dancing!


A Taste of School Life: London Parliament visit 2018

Members of the School Council had a very special day out in London. The day was focused around a visit to Parliament which included access to the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Children also gained access to the famous number 10 door at Downing Street and saw many London landmarks such as the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, New Scotland Yard, Horse Guards Parade and Trafalgar Square. All staff were extremely proud of the children's behaviour, enthusiasm and attitude on the day.  

A taste of school life: Sport Relief 2018


Templenewsam Halton had a fabulous Friday on March 23rd celebrating Sport Relief 2018.

Children were split into their houses in order to take part in six main sporting activities throughout the day. Points were allocated to the house that performed best in these. The day started with a whole school Wake up, Shake up on the playground (won by team Apollo). Further sports activities included an energetic and exhausting Zumba class (won by Endeavour), Curling lessons and competition, Martial Arts with Mr Singh (won by Endeavour), a Creative Classroom and a Step Challenge which set each house the task of collecting the most steps whilst travelling around the school grounds (won by team Voyager with 5675 steps). In addition to all of this, we set a cycling challenge to the whole school. This involved keeping an excercise bike moving all day. Staff and children took turns on the bike and were more than up for the challenge, not only did they keep the bike cycling all day but they achieved a whopping 86 miles distance whilst doing it!  To end the day we first streamed the Curling final via a live link up between two areas of school. This was incredibily exciting for the children and staff watching on the big screen in the hall and was eventually won by team Discovery by a very narrow margin over team Endeavour. After that, children and staff took part in a Templenewsam version of A Question of Sport which was also won by team Discovery.

All children in school were fantastic and really enjoyed the range of activities on the day. Two houses, Discovery and Endeavour, shared the title of overall house winners for Sport Relief 2018.

Of course with Sport Relief being about charity we would also like to say a huge thank you to all children who brought in a donation which helped the school to raise a brilliant £430. A special mention must also go to Sophia and Eleanor Hirst who donated £10 which they collected after completing a week of sporting activities which ended with them both running to school on the friday.
