Our Magical Moments

This page, ‘Our Magical Moments’, is here to share and celebrate activities and events in school that demonstrate your growth as a person. 

Our learning behaviours and drivers, British Values and your social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding will guide and enlighten you on your journey through school and beyond.


Culture Fest at Bare Trees. Children across school learned about a cultural festival and shared their understanding with other classes and explored a variety of other festivals. This allows pupils to understand different traditions and beliefs; embracing diversity in our community and the wider world. Lots of fun was had and activities were creative and insightful.

Resilience Day


On Friday 19th April we celebrated one of our school Drivers- ‘Resilience’. The day started with a whole school assembly where teachers had chosen pupils who had demonstrated resilience within their learning. Throughout the day pupils worked hard on practising their resilience, they were then rewarded for this.


Spring House Reward - Congratulations Platt!!

Children from Year 2 and Year 3 participated in Europe's largest Choral Speaking Festival this week at the Queen Elizabth Hall, Oldham. The children were amazing! We are so proud of their enthusiasm and bravery! You can watch the Year 3's performance of My Shadow by Robert Louis Stevenson below.

International Mother Language Day 


We all had a wonderful day celebrating International Mother Language Day. At Bare Trees there are over 22 different languages spoken by children and staff, which is why it is important to us to understand why language day is important. We enjoyed celebrating and learning how spoken and written languages equip us as individuals and as a society to contribute to the world. 


To help us celebrate the day we have been learning new words and phrases in new languages and we have had virtual reality experiences linked to different places around the world where amazing languages are spoken. We have also had some wonderful visitors who have shared their mother language with us and taught us new words and phrases to use. 




All children should be respectful and responsible active members of school and the wider community, we aim for pupils to explore and pursue a range of extra curricular activities with equality of opportunity ensured and enrich the curriculum with exciting experiences. Equality and diversity underpins everything we do. See below our school values (BARETREES), our learning drivers (DEARL), and British Values linked to our house teams. Pupils should leave us physically and mentally healthy, safe and be able to develop positive relationships with others to engage and thrive in the wider, diverse world.

Year 5 Celebrating International Mother Languages Day

Year 5 were very lucky to be visited by a parent who shared information about the language of Yoruba from Nigeria. Pupils really enjoyed learning facts about the language, counted from 1-10 and learned greetings such as 'good morning', 'good afternoon', 'good evening' and 'good night'.

We also learned about sign language and signed along to our school song, Count on Me.

Year 6 Celebrating International Mother Languages Day

Language for Learning Day


The pupils had a wonderful day on Language for Learning Day.  As this is one of our school drivers it was really important to raise the profile of the need to develop language for learning. Throughout the day, sessions took place to develop vocabulary, language and to celebrate the diverse languages that we speak. Families also took part in a home learning task prior to the day that allowed pupils to learn new things about each other. 

Diversity Day


The pupils had a wonderful day on Diversity Day. As this is one of our school drivers it was really important to raise the profile of this alongside acceptance, tolerance and celebrating the diverse community that we are at Bare Trees. Visitors came to school and delivered workshops to the pupils. Families also took part in a home learning task prior to the day that allowed pupils to learn new things about each other.

Pupils at Bare Trees have remembered her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, through class discussions and art projects. Pupils recognised that she was powerful female role model to others and how resilient she was being our Queen for 70 years. Many pupils watched the state funeral on the Bank Holiday Monday as a sign of respect. 

June is Pride Month. A celebration of diversity, individual liberty, equal rights, respect and tolerance through democracy and rule of law. Read about inspirational individuals who are part of the LGBTQ+ community.

The Bare Trees' Platinum Jubilee Celebration

Mrs Ali's hard work at school is always valued but her crochet skills have brought joy to Shaw this week too.

On Friday the 27th of May 2022, Bare Trees are celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. The Queen has reigned for a record breaking 70 years! The Union Jack flag will be waved and everyone will wear the colours red, white and blue during a whole day of exciting activities. We will be playing sports from the Commonwealth Games, enjoy a party picnic at lunch and year groups will dance to music from different decades in a whole school danceathon. An Art Gallery, in the main hall, will display artwork inspired by artists from each decade of her reign. Families are invited to visit and admire the children's creations at hometime. smiley

Good Luck, Year 6!
