LATEST NEWS : During Autumn 2017 over 180 children were welcomed by the Learning Team to take part in the Linking Schools project. Children from diverse backgrounds came together and took part in an array of Rushcart Art activities in our High Days & Holidays workshops. We enjoyed exploring the heritage of the Northwest’s Rushcart tradition and Oldham Wakes holidays together. Morris dance drawing, Victorian pop up photo booth and Rushcart banner making were just a few of the hands-on activities the pupils enjoyed.
“children loved being creative and working together. Good structure, great engagement. Definitely book again.” (Miss Watson, Yr3 teacher, South Failsworth primary)-Autumn 2017
