The Enrichment Banking and Events team have been impressed by so many budding business minded pupils growing their £1.
97 students completed application forms to grow a £1 back in September. We have had teams of siblings, friends and individual pupils growing their £1 in so many different ways.
The project will be closing on the 2nd November. All £1 loans with need to be returned with any profit made to the enrichment post box outside Mrs Savage's maths room.
We can't wait to share the total made by pupils and photos of all the exciting enterprise schemes.
Thank you for giving the project a try and working hard to grow your £1.
The Enrichment Team students.

Our year 5 and 6 cross country runners romped to victory in their first cross country meet of the season. In very wet and miserable conditions, they all ran brilliantly against sixteen other schools to score 1st place for the girls team and a very close 3rd place for the boys. Our best school performance to date so well done everyone who represented the school. Those hill reps in South Park must be working!!
Final placings in the race were as follows
Lucy (2), Dot (7), Yasmin (20), Mikayla (33), Tilly (62), Astrid (63)
Noah (7), Calum (12), Hamish (16), Freddy (32), Daniel (36), Adam (47)
The opening fixture of the Macclesfield Primary schools cross country took place this Wednesday with sixteen of our enthusiastic Year 3 and 4 pupils representing Parkroyal. Although somewhat wet under foot, the weather stayed dry as the children ran their hearts out around the perimeter of the athletics track. Everyone was fantastic and gave 100% effort.
The girls team finished 7th out of 14 schools and the boys 9th out of 14.
Individually the following children took the top 3 places for Parkroyal
Girls: Maisie Wallinger, Matilda Johnson and India Bellshaw.
Boys: Alfie Adams, Nolen Connors and Adam Mclaren.
The second volleyball club is underway. A mixture of Year 1s and 2s have been showing some amazing throwing and catching skills over the last 3 weeks. Following a number of ball skills games, we have been practising using the underhand pass or 'dig', and this week introduced the overhead 'set' pass. We also brought in the net to provide a more challenging obstacle to our passing. This week the net won, but next week, we'll be even more amazing....
Wednesday's inter school cross country championships brought rain, rain, mud and more rain. Those wanting to brave the conditions gave an outstanding performance in what only can be described as swamp conditions.
Only the top 3 finishers from each school scored points, but every runner who took part from Parkroyal improved on their finishing places from last week. The top 3 finishers were as follows
Y3/4 girls - Tilly 68 Rosalynn 69
Y3/4 boys - Hamish 17 Ollie 37 Freddie 46
Y5/6 girls - Lucy 15 Dot 23 Yasmin 52
Y5/6 boys - Milton 16 Calum 46 Adam 54
A HUGE well done to all the runners - we were so proud of you running in such horrible conditions and still coming through the finish line with a smile!
On Thursday 16th March our fantastic hockey team represented Macclesfield in the Level 3 finals competition. This event was a culmination of local and regional qualifiers. This meant that today it was the best of the best competing. After a slow start, losing the opening two goals by a one goal margin, the team kicked into gear and recorded a comprehensive 4-1 win against a school from Crewe. They then followed this with a draw (in a game they should have won). Unfortunately the final three group games ended in narrow defeats, which meant that on this occasion we were unable to progress further. The standard of hockey was extremely high and as a team we played really well. The team can be proud of the journey it has been on and consider themselves winners for making it all the way to this elite level of competition.
A quick warm up ahead of the next fixture.
Action shot- the level of competition is fierce.
Team photo- post tournament; still able to smile for the camera.
Despite the beautiful Spring sunshine, there was an abundance of mud for our intrepid cross country runners to sprint through at the Primary Schools Cross Country races at Macclesfield athletics track on Wednesday afternoon.
For many of the runners it was their first experience of racing against so many and they all did brilliantly. The year 3 and 4 pupils ran once around the cross country track plus an extra loop with the year 5 and 6 pupils completing a gruelling 2 laps.
Our highest placed runners were Milton Y6 in 13th position with Lucy Y5 and Mikaela Y5 in 21st and 22nd positions respectively. Huge well done to all the runners against some excellent and very experienced cross country runners. Mrs Morgan and Mrs Smith are super proud of you all.
Y3/4 girls results - Anna 57, Erin 67, Tilly 69, Matilda 76, Maisie 78, Rosalynn 98
Y3/4 boys results - Hamish 32, Jasper 63, Luke 66, Freddy 79, Dennis 87, Ollie 88, Jude 109, Jack 110

What a pleasure to join Year 3 at their club! Lots of fun, super team spirit and bundles of enthusiasm. Thank you so much, from Mrs Tuson :)
What am I?
Let's go shopping!
Today the Choir at Parkroyal welcomed Mrs Paylethorpe and Mrs Wolski from the Macclesfield Music Festival for a workshop.
Craft club members have been busy getting into the celebrations of the Chinese New Year, by decorating their own Dragon mask. The children got to show off their finished masks in the whole school assembly this morning.
Volleyball club started this week, with 16 eager infants all working hard to improve their ball skills, and hand-eye coordination. We have attempted a number of activities aimed at improving throwing and catching skills, individually and in pairs.
We also tried our hand at the underhand pass or 'dig' , using linked hands.
