Foundation Stage performed their Nativity play for the rest of the school this afternoon. It was excellent, with lots of singing and dancing. The story of Christmas shone through and put everyone in the Christmas spirit. We hope the parents enjoy it this afternoon. If you or your family missed it there is a video here https://vimeo.com/248042587
Our Foundation Stage children and parents had a fun filled start to the day when the Foundation Stage staff organised a wonderful Festive Friday for them. They even had a special visitor!
Year 4 visited Gorton Parks Care Home for their annual Christmas sing along. We don’t know who enjoyed it more – the children or the residents! The staff said that the children were very sensitive towards the residents, many of whom are vulnerable. We feel that it is very important that our children develop an empathy towards elderly people and they did us proud.
Some of our classes have been very lucky this term to have been able to visit Gorton Library. They have really enjoyed these visits and have created some excellent videos linked to topics that they are covering in class.
Year 4 have been studying 1066 in history and when they visited the library they used green screen technology to make videos that put them right at the centre of the battle!
A great big thanks to Darren and Paula at the library who organised the session. Darren sent us this lovely email too.
Hi Miss Ramsey
Please find attached the photos I took during the session. The shots outside are especially cute. they are such a great bunch. Thank you again so much for all the effort you put in prepping for the session. I think it made such a huge difference to how the day went and the results we got. My colleague Paula, who organises a lot of the outreach in the area, said the trailers I showed her were the best she has seen from anywhere in the city. I thought your kids might like to know how much their work has impressed everybody here.
We’re proud to announce we’ve become an eCadet school. The eCadets is an award winning programme which trains, empowers and supports a team of pupils to keep their friends safe online.
The programme is run by a team of former police officers and there is also the opportunity for every other child at the school to benefit and get involved through Bubble – the 100% safe social platform which is run and moderated by eCadets HQ and enables children to safely engage with children the same year group age as themselves in complete safety.

We were absolutely delighted to be crowned Manchester Athletics Champions in a very hard fought contest. Miss Jagger reported that the competition was one of the best that we have ever attended, with every child from every school supporting each other and cheering for each other. She felt it showed the true spirit of sport. Our children agreed!
