Artsmark Award For Grosvenor Road

Posted by Grosvenornews on Tuesday Sep 10, 2019 Under Art, Curriculum, Music, School News

We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Artsmark Silver Award.

Artsmark is Arts Council England’s award for schools and education settings who champion cultural education, celebrating settings that embrace the arts across the curriculum.

Our Silver Award shows how the school is skilled in unlocking the potential of our children, developing their character and talent, and increasing their knowledge and understanding across the wider curriculum.

The award has been achieved over a three year period, led by Mrs Heys and Mrs Peacock, together with our Art Subject Leader Mrs Moran and our Music Subject Leader Mrs Newall. We look forward to continuing to promote the arts and a wider curriculum at Grosvenor Road, giving our children a range of opportunities and experiences in school and out in the wider community.

Year 2 Trip To St Annes

Posted by Grosvenornews on Thursday Jul 11, 2019 Under Curriculum, Histroy, Year 2

Year 2 have been learning about seaside holidays past and present. We have looked at Victorian seasides in the UK and compared them to seasides now. We visited St Annes and saw the pier, walked along the promenade, looked at the band stand and the Victorian shelters. We spotted lots of changes over the past 100 years; what people used to wear for the beach and what they did at the beach.

We also visited the Lifeboat Centre. The children thoroughly enjoyed making sandcastles and eating ice cream on such a sunny day!

Children’s University ceremony

Posted by Grosvenornews on Thursday Jul 4, 2019 Under Children's University, Fun Stuff, School News, Year 5, Year 6

On Tuesday, 22 children attended the Children’s University graduation at Salford University.  Over the course of the year, each child who had taken part in a school extra-curricular activity gained credits to achieve Children’s University awards. This year, we had children who achieved bronze, silver and gold awards, which is amazing. The children and parents who attended the ceremony thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were a credit to the school.

Remember, your credits from this year roll over to next year, so keep going to the extra-curricular activities to gain even more credits and achieve your next award!

The Life Education Caravan

Posted by Grosvenornews on Sunday Jun 30, 2019 Under EYFS, PSHE, Visitors

This week the children visited the Life Education Caravan at school. There they met Harold the giraffe.

The children in Nursery helped Harold to get ready for school, using the items in his wash bag and talked about the importance of washing, cleaning our teeth and brushing our hair.

The children in Reception spoke to Harold on the phone and told him what sort of things made them feel happy. Some of their ideas included ‘smiling’, ‘going to the park’, ‘playing with my friends’ and ‘eating ice-cream’. 🙂
