This week, we celebrated Shrove Tuesday in school with our sponsored pancake flip. All our children have had a great time – trying to flip as many pancakes as possible in 2 minutes! Thank you to our PTA for organising this event and thank you to all those who have sponsored the children
All our choir’s hard work in rehearsals over the past few months paid off at our spectacular Young Voices Concert on Friday. We were amongst 8351 children who performed at Manchester Arena as part of ‘The Largest School Choir Concerts in the World’.
We are extremely proud of our children’s fantastic singing, their super dance moves and their impeccable behaviour during the rehearsal and concert at the Arena. Here are some photographs and video from our amazing day – a truly memorable experience for all of us!
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.
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!
Mr Alzheimer’s is a storybook character, created by an Age UK Salford dementia awareness project, in order to start a conversation and campaign around dementia awareness for children.
This week, members of our School Council attended the launch event in Salford and our school will be taking part in the project over the next academic year using a Mr Alzheimer’s teddy, introduction post cards for family and friends, puzzles and games, a diary and a Mr Alzheimer’s Goes to Toyland story book.
