YEAR 5 DRAGON’S DEN SUCCESS!

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 –

YOUNG VOICES 2024

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:

SCHOOL COUNCIL VISIT TO SWINTON CENOTAPH

On Wednesday 15th November, our twelve School Council members visited the Swinton Cenotaph to lay our school poppy wreath on behalf of our children and staff.

This year, we also met with Mr Glen Croston, a member of Salford Veterans Association, who spoke to the children about the new Veterans Memorial Garden – this now includes 23 memorial benches, a memorial board and 12 silhouette military figures.

Lest we forget…
