I-Vengers are GO!
Buxworth Primary School has joined a county-wide online safeguarding initiative called I-Vengers. This involves children from across the school, led by I-Vengers from Year 5 and Year 6, becoming ambassadors for internet safety.
The I-Vengers have been set a challenge for this term to gather as many parent online safety surveys as possible. The I-Vengers need YOU to help them complete this task!
Please follow this link to complete a two minute survey about online safety: I-VENGERS PARENT SURVERY
We really do need as many responses as possible so your help is, as always, much appreciated.

Buxworth's Day of Compassion
Today, we have all developed a better understanding of the meaning of compassion and empathy. We read the story 'Clean up' and put ourselves in the shoes of the main character, Rocket. We understood how she felt in the story and why then made our own pledges to the environment.
We’ve had a fantastic afternoon with Peter. We’ve learnt how to light a fire using flint and steel and how to safely whittle the wood for the fire. We ended the session with a game of darts with the darts we made out of willow and feathers.
We had a great fun kicking off our topic with a foodie themed treasure hunt. We solved maths and English based puzzles and riddles to find a trove of sweets and chocolates.
Today we had the most fantastic time at our Egyptian Day. The children all looked amazing - well done for such a fantastic costume effort! We learnt an incredible amount, helped to build a tomb, took on various Ancient Egyptian jobs, created our own dances to perform, re-enacted a battle scene, made scarab beetle necklaces, made shabtis, made boat sails, weighed our hearts and practised mummification, as well as lots more! It was a very busy day! Have a look at the photos below and use them to tell your grown ups what we did.
We would like to thank the PTA for funding such a fabulous day!
Welcome to the Summer Term! We hope you all had a fantastic Easter break.
Here are a few reminders and some information for the term.
Drop off: 9am Pick up: 3:15pm
PE: Wednesdays and Fridays
Forest Schools: Wednesday
Please come wearing appropriate clothing on these days.
As forest school and PE are on the same day, please send pupils into school wearing their PE kit and have waterproofs/wellies in a bag.
Spelling test: Wednesday
Times table test: Friday
The afterschool club for Year 3s will be Drawing club on a Monday with Mrs Turega, running until 4:10pm. As with the end of the school day, club times are staggered for different classes, so please try to arrive promptly for pick-ups from clubs.
Please send your child's reading book and diary into school each Friday so we can give rewards for reading at home and change reading books. New books will be sent home on a Friday. Diaries will be quarantined over the weekend and checked on Monday before being returned to children. Please note, new books will only be sent home if old ones have been returned.
Homework: Throughout the week your child will be expected to learn their spellings and times tables and should try to read every evening. Every Friday, your child will bring home one Maths task and one Literacy task, and they will be things the children have learnt in school during the week. This is to help the children to consolidate their learning and to give them some extra practise. Additionally, a times table sheet will be sent for the times tables they will be tested on the following Friday.
And finally, a polite reminder that toys and pencil cases stay at home for the foreseeable future to limit things going between home and school.
Mrs Turega and Mrs Downings
This topic is a whirlwind of adventure where we will be exploring the exciting period of Ancient Egypt. We will be taking a closer look at King Tutankhamun and the process of mummification. There will be plenty of opportunities for art and design, along with geographical, scientific and historical exploration.
