The Life Education Caravan

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’. ūüôā

The Lion King Y6-1

Today, as part of our world of work week, UKS2 were visited by West End Schools who talked to them all about the theatre industry and also worked with them to produce a short musical version of The Lion King, which they performed to each other. They worked incredibly hard and threw themselves into it Рas you can see from the photos below. Well done everyone who took part.

Nursery Cake Sale

For World of work week this year in Early Years we decided to learn all about chefs and bakers. We were lucky enough to have a chef come in to bake with us. Thanks again Mr Ball!

The children enjoyed baking and decorating cakes, writing recipes, counting cakes and guessing how many we could bake. It was a very busy week! Nursery ended the week with a fantastic cake sale!‚Äč

We would also like to thank all the parents and carers who supported us in coming to our cake sale on Thursday. The children absolutely loved preparing for it and the great turn out was fantastic!

 

KS2 Sports Day

The weather behaved perfectly for our Key Stage 2 Sports Day yesterday.

The children had a fantastic time Рworking together to earn points for their team.  They participated in a range of disciplines, including hurdles, long jump and javelin.

We would like to thank Premier Sports for organising such an enjoyable day and well done to ‘Team France’ who were the overall winners!

Year 6 fire service talk.

Greater Manchester Fire Service came into school on Friday to speak to the pupils about summer safety. They discussed the dangers of open water swimming and the potential consequences of swimming in open water. Also discussed were the effects of antisocial behaviour on their neighbourhood. The pupils found the talk very informative and were shocked at some of the real-life scenarios they discussed. At the end they summed up what they should do: think about the consequences before you do something.

Year 6 also enjoyed watching Mr. Cronin dress up in their water rescue gear.

Is it hot in here… or is it me?

School Council visit to Wentworth House Care Home

At Grosvenor Road Primary School, we are very keen to make links with people of all ages in our wider community. One way in which we are doing this is through a link with Wentworth House – a local residential care home for the elderly. On Thursday 13th June, members of our School Council visited the residents there to help them to celebrate their ‘Alzheimer’s UK Cupcake Day’. The children helped to judge the cupcakes which had been decorated by the residents, played games, chatted to the residents about our school, presented prizes and enjoyed refreshments. Our visit was very well received and we look forward to visiting again next month with our choir.
