On Thursday 28th March, Miss Sawkins’ class presented their excellent assembly all about Brazil.

We were treated to flights onboard ‘Grosvenor Road Airlines’ to travel around Brazil and learn about all the features of Physical Geography and Human Gepography which the children have learned throughout their topic this term.

Well done to all the children in Y5PS – you were amazing!

Thank you very much to all the parents and carers who supported their children at the assembly and came into class afterwards to join in activities.


On Monday 25th March, we held a very ‘Egg-citing’ Easter Hat Competition in school. Children and their parents really worked hard to create some extraordinary hats and these were all celebrated in class. (see photographs below)

Our Chair of Governors, Mrs Dunkley, was then given the very difficult task of choosing a winning hat from each of our 23 classes and an overall winner in school.

Congratulations to our class winners below. Our TWO overall winners were Ryan and Greyson – they received an additional prize and their hats were worn by Mr Pridden, our bingo caller, at Easter Family Bingo!

WELL DONE to all our entrants – your hats were all excellent!

On Thursday 21st March, Miss Livesey’s Year 5 class presented their Brazil Assembly to their parents and carers plus Year 4.

They presented a great deal of information which they have learned this term about Brazil, including its geographical features and culture. They even included a Samba dance!

ALL the children contributed to the assembly and made this a very memorable occasion. Well done to eveybody!

Thank you to all the parents and carers who supported the class, attending the assembly and taking part in activities with their children afterwards in the classroom.


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:


Our children had a lovely time at all of our PTA End of Year Discos this week. We also drew out the names of the lucky winners in our Name The Bear Competition!

Thank you to all those who attended and to those who took part in the competition.

Our thanks also go to the Parent Members of the PTA who helped to organise the events and gave up their time to help at each one.
