Well done to all of our amazing Year 6 pupils for their leaver's assembly. Best of luck for the future!
Congratulations to Mrs Beckwithโ€™s stars of the week ๐ŸŒŸ
1TL had a fantastic time at Sports Day this afternoon! ๐Ÿ˜„
1AM had a wonderful time taking part in Sports Day this afternoon!
Nursery really enjoyed Sports Day this morning!
Reception RHJB had a fantastic time at Sports Day this morning!
We had a very special visitor this morning. Our adopted horse, Tiny Tim, came to school to meet the Kiwi , Nursery and Reception children. He brought his friend with him too.
Everyone had an amazing time and the horses enjoyed all the attention.
The Kiwi children were very excited this morning. It is nearly three years since we were able to hold an assembly in the hall. There were a few last minute nerves but our children were amazing.
A big thank you to all our parents that came to watch and also for supporting us over the past few months.
Tomorrow is 'Feel Good Friday'. Please wear an accessory showcasing your favourite colour and aim to do one thing that will make someone else smile.
Don't forget we will also be selling ice lollies (50p each) in the playground after school with all proceeds going to UNICEF.
We have recently adopted Ryderbrow Station. Over the past few weeks our children have been designing letters for a banner welcoming commuters to the station.
On Friday lunchtime the banner was fixed onto one of the platform fences and it looked amazing.
However, today we received the news that within a few hours our beautiful banner had been vandalised. This is extremely sad news for our children and the people from the Community Railway Partnership who arranged for the banner to be printed and then donated it to the school.
Reception CM had a lovely trip to the library today, the children were exceptionally well behaved.
Loganโ€™s mum and Mrs Taylor read a story to the children and they had a lovely time choosing a book that they wanted to take back to school.
Thank you to all the parents who helped on the trip.
Congratulations to all of our EYFS and KS1 stars of the week ๐ŸŒŸ
UNICEF Article of the Week.
Happy Thursday!

Free autumn National Trust passes 22/09/2023

Autumn is here and as the month of magic approaches why not take advantage of the wonders of nature and itโ€™s magical benefits by having a day in one of many local National Trust parks for free!

A blustery day is perfect to dance in falling leaves, the rain doesnโ€™t need to stop the fun when puddles are there for everyone, treasures can be found right under our toes as down fall the conkers, acorns and pinecones.

We truly believe that with the right clothing no weather is bad weather, and being outside can be beneficial to both our bodies and minds, follow the link below and see where you might go.


Free autumn National Trust passes Escape into autumn with the National Trust. Find out how to claim a free, single-use visitor's pass.


Itโ€™s September and time for a new Kiwi club. This term will be out and about with children from year 6.
Our first trip took us to Bean n Brush art cafe in Sale. The children all carefully painted their chosen pot. They canโ€™t wait to see them again when they have been fired and glazed. It was a great day out!


Today is International Democracy Day. Democracy is one of our British Values and we uphold this at Old Hall Drive by voting for our school counsellors who help to shape the experiences of our pupils. Watch this space as we will be announcing our 2023-2024 school counsellors next week.

Here at Old Hall Drive Academy we are a Rights Respecting School and have already gained our Bronze Award. Today we have looked at the 43 articles that make up the convention. Your child will have also received a copy to discuss with you at home.
Which article do you think is the most important and why?


Wow, our Lionesses certainly displayed many of our character traits during today's World Cup Finale. They were unbelievably resilient and positive until the last second. An amazing example of what team work and excellence can achieve. We are all so proud of you!


Today has been a special day. Our long awaited banner is now up at Ryderbrow Station and it looks fantastic.
A massive thank you to Sarah our Community Rail Officer from Community Rail Partnerships for making this happen.


A huge thank you to all our parents and children for a fantastic year in RCA! We hope you all have a lovely Summer! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dear parents/carers,

Due to traffic on the motorway, the return time for the Year 6 trip has been delayed and we are expecting them to arrive back at school any time between 5.30 to 5.45pm.

Please can you notify others to ensure that everyone is aware of the delay.

Your support is massively appreciated.

Mr Khalid


On Thursday it was the turn of children from Year6AK to visit Gladstone Pottery. Everyone had an amazing day. We would like to thank Field Good Trips and Avanti trains for making our trips possible.

Sports day fun for RCA! What a fantastic event and thank you to all the parents who joined us and for joining in with the parent race! ๐Ÿ™‚


We know how expensive school uniform can be! We are doing a uniform swap event on Monday 24th July! This is a great opportunity to bring in any outgrown uniform (preferably clean and in good condition) and swap it for bigger sizes! If you donโ€™t have anything to swap donโ€™t worry, youโ€™re still welcome to take any items youโ€™d like for next year! This will be held in the main playground outside the Reception playground! We hope youโ€™ll all take advantage of this opportunity. ๐Ÿ™‚


Year 6KW have been to Debdale Park Outdoor Centre today. They began by working as a team to build a raft and then went out onto the water. Afterwards, it was time to have some fun splashing around in the water and also a trip in the speedboat.
