Manchester Histories Festival

This week pupils from Years 5 and 6 have ventured into Manchester to participate in the city’s Histories Festival. They visited the John Rylands Library and learnt about mapping in Manchester throughout the ages. Following this, the children experienced a ‘supporters throughout the years’ tour at The National Football Museum. It was a day packed with learning, history and most importantly, fun!

World Book Day

Pupils have today celebrated World Book Day. The children have spent the day dressed as their favourite ‘book title’ or character, donated money to charitable reading causes and participated in reading-related activities throughout the day. Below is a video, which was shown as part of Mrs Bourke’s Y1 assembly; it highlights the love of reading at St. Philip’s RC. More updates to follow ASAP!

Cross-Country Success!

Saturday saw the culmination of the Salford School’s Cross Country Competition. Children from across KS2 (and some from Y2) participated in five meetings which were held at Buile Hill and Bolton Road Playing Fields,Salford. All the children who took part should be very proud of their efforts and achievements in a very challenging event. Children battled the mud and the cold over 5 Saturday meetings, competing against children from 20 other Salford Primary schools. As a result of their efforts and commitment, there were a number of individual and team successes. Our Y5 boys were crowned Salford champions, whilst our Y4 girls achieved 2nd place overall…a wonderful achievement. On an individual note, a number of children produced some stand-out performances, in particular Isobel, who finished 2nd overall in the Y4 girls competition.
