Today, some of our Year 5 & Year 6 children were presented with their Children’s University Awards in a graduation ceremony led by Enrich Education.

Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children – encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school.

Our children received bronze, silver and gold awards today, according to the number of hours of extra-curricular activities they have built up over the past year.

Children’s University ceremony

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!

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 – as you can see from the photos below. Well done everyone who took part.

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?
