Reception’s Red Nose Day Cake Sale

Posted by Grosvenornews on Friday Mar 15, 2019 Under EYFS

The children in Reception have been very busy this week making cakes and biscuits to sell on Red Nose Day. The children sent out invitations to their parents, inviting them to come into class on Friday for our cake sale. We also made posters and displayed these on our classroom doors. At home time today, we had lots of families and friends that joined us in class to buy cakes and helped us to raise money for Comic Relief. Thanks to the fantastic support, we are pleased to announce that the cake sale raised £109.50! Thank you so much to everyone that came along! 🙂

Whole School Total now confirmed –  £537.45

Sponsored Pancake Flip

Posted by Grosvenornews on Friday Mar 8, 2019 Under Curriculum, Fun Stuff, School Council, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, our School Council held a sponsored pancake flip in school. All children in Reception to Year 6 took part to see how many (wooden) pancakes they could flip in two minutes. All our children tried really hard and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The record number of flips went to Ammar in Year 6 with 153!!

Thank you to all our families who have very kindly sponsored their children – please send monies in to school as soon as possible. Also, a huge thank you to the parents who came into school to help over the two days, enabling us to hold this event. Here are some of our pancake flippers in action!

Posted by Grosvenornews on Sunday Mar 3, 2019 Under Curriculum

Before Christmas, Year 5 took part in an Enterprise Day which was run in association with Manchester United and the Co-op Academy Swinton.  The winning team, from Mrs Walker’s class, were then rewarded by being invited to a tour of the museum and stadium at Manchester United.  They had a fantastic day and got to go behind the scenes, into the dressing rooms, executive lounges and even pitch-side players seats at the stadium.

Posted by Grosvenornews on Tuesday Feb 26, 2019 Under Curriculum, English, EYFS, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

As part of our World Book Day celebrations, we are running a writing competition.  The children have to use one of the pictures as a stimulus for their short story.

It would be great to get the whole family involved, so the children will be bringing home a planning sheet so they can get ideas ready for writing their story in class next week.
