Anything fun!


On Friday 17th May, some of our children were given a special job to do – help unpack our new library books with Mrs Johns and Mrs Newall.  Our school successfully applied to the National Literacy Trust to be part of their ‘Libraries for Primaries’ programme. 

As part of this programme, we received 500 new books.  The children loved looking through the new books and they all  worked really hard unpacking and sorting the books ready to be put on the shelves.  We hope our new books will be well-loved by all the children and encourage them to become life-long readers. 

Please see our Grosvenor Road Reading Journey on the School Website, if you would like more information on the Reading Curriculum at Grosvenor Road.


This year’s TWO Easter Family Bingo Evenings were held on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th March. ALL tickets for the event were sold out and a great time was had by all.

Thank you to all those who donated an egg for the Bingo Evenings – a proportion of these has also been given to SALFORD FOODBANK for children who may not receive any eggs this Easter time.

We would like to thank all parents and children who attended and all the School Staff and PTA Members who gave up their time to make the evenings possible.


On Friday 9th and Monday 12th February, all children in school took part in our sponsored pancake flip – trying to flip as many (wooden) pancakes as possible in two minutes!

As you can see from the photographs below, the children had a great time taking part. THANK YOU for your very generous sponsorship and MANY THANKS to all the adults who came into school to help with counting flips – we really could not run the sessions without your support.


This term, all our Year 5 children have taken part in a Dragon’s Den Project organised by Co-op Academy Swinton and the Manchester United Foundation. They were asked to create a new product and to present this to four judges.

After a nail-biting school competition judged by Mr Pridden and Mrs Peacock, two teams were put forward to represent our school at the Final, up against four other Swinton primary schools – seven teams in total.

On Thursday 29th February, both teams made their pitch to the four ‘dragons’ at the Final – they were excellent and judged to be in the top three overall. We are very pleased to report that our Bombastic Boots Team were the overall winners!

Well done to all our children – here are photographs from the finals at Co-op Academy Swinton, plus a montage video created by Manchester United Foundation –


On Monday 5th February, our choir sang at the AO Arena, Manchester alongside 8000 other children in the Young Voices Concert.

All the children in our choir have worked very hard to learn all the songs and their efforts were rewarded on Monday evening. We are all extremely proud of them – they sang so well and a fantastic time was had by all at this very special event.

Thank you to all our parents and families who supported us and all those who helped the choir along the way.

Here are photographs and videos of our afternoon and evening at the Arena:
