Greeks, goodies and guests at Knowsley Primary School

YEAR THREE pupils turned back time at Knowsley Primary School in Springhead as they took part in an Ancient Greece day.

They had been studying the Greeks throughout the term, learning about lifestyle, democracy and voting.

And they rounded it off with the fun day of activities as pupils and staff came to school dressed in a variety of Greek-themed costumes and outfits.

The children played games and puzzles as well as doing a quiz and drama activities and they also had a special visit from a ‘peasant’ and soldier’ provided by Portals from the Past.

Meanwhile, Easter came early for some pupils as they were voted ‘Good Eggs’ and received chocolate eggs to take home.

Staff and pupils all nominated pupils who made a difference at school, with reasons including being kind and helpful, nice and friendly, helping others and being a good listener.

The eggs were donated by Tesco’s Community Champion Greg Barratt.

Meanwhile, the school welcomed special guest Saddleworth Parish Council chairman Cllr Enid Firth to hand out awards at their weekly assembly.

Cllr Firth, accompanied by consort and school governor Cllr Bill Cullen, presented the trophies to pupils for their hard work, outstanding contribution and improvement in lessons.

She talked to the pupils about the “great honour” she feels working for Saddleworth, visiting schools and events, and attending meetings and dinners across the Parish.

She answered children’s questions about her role and the council, and also handed our special Parish Council pens to the award winners.
