St Philip’s RC Primary School Annual Summer Fair
Saturday 19th June 2010
This is a fun-filled family day and we invite all our children, their parents, families and friends to come along and enjoy the events while helping raise money for our School.
Come and try your luck on our fantastic Tombolas, take home a delicious homemade cake or even buy groceries on our Grocery Stall. There will be fun and games in the yard for the children, led by Mr Barrett & Mr Cooper. After browsing around the stalls at the fair, why not have a nice sit down in the Servite Social Centre and wait the Grand Raffle Draw while soaking up the atmosphere and entertainment. All this and so much more !!
If you can donate any items to any of the stalls, or even a raffle prize, help us man a stall on on the day, or can spare your time to help us set up the stalls or clear up afterwards please feel free to contact the PTA on our new email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following on from yesterday’s ‘mind mapping’, today you can view some work-in-progress from Class 11’s dance project.
Class 11 have been working with Angie, a dance specialist, to create a whole-class dance over a period of several days. The dance with be performed at our ever popular annual dance evening. This video features ‘mind mapping’ in order to plan and organise their creative ideas for the project.
Reception 1A have been learning about the General Election. Despite still being around 14 years away from the legal voting age, the children have taken a great interest in recent proceedings! They produced some high quality art work to depict the current situation. Well done!
A selection of wonderful photographs from Reception’s recent visit to Tatton Park Farm.
Reception 1A have used digital photography as part of an Art project, focussing on animals. The children took pictures of each other, printed them out, cut them out and then designed an animal to include the photograph in. Haf-boy half-pig? Easy for this class!
On 27th April 2010, Year 3 and 4 girls took part in a football tournament organised by St. Monica’s RC High School. The good news is… they won the tournament! The 6-a-side team managed to finish above the other St. Monica’s ‘feeder schools’ and will now go on to represent them in a Bury wide competition in the near future. In April last year, St. Philip’s were victorious in this competition so the girls will be hoping to retain the trophy.
All Year 6 football league matches have now been played. Click on the image below to open up the table showing the final standings. We have finished a respectable 2nd – our highest position in years. Well done to the boys involved and a big thank you to all the parents who supported them this year. We still have the cup semi-final to play, so watch this space!
Close your eyes and let your imagination transport you into a chariot race in Rome. Taste the dust, tremble under the pressure and never, ever fall off! This creative literacy work was produced by Class 6 in response to the Youtube clip below. Watch out for the excellent vocabulary choices…
Class 6 used the above chariot racing video as stimulus for a creative writing piece. Their work focussed on senses and was produced in the first person – as if they were really there! Video footage of their work can be viewed above.
