Last Saturday, the Greater Manchester Cross Country Championships, held at Heaton Park, brought an end to this year’s cross country season. Over the last three months, several of our children have demonstrated great spirit and determination by attending cross country races at Buille Hill Park and other locations; to represent St Philip’s in the Salford Cross Country Championships. All the children did extremely well in (at times) extremely harsh conditions, but a special congratulations go to Niall and Isobel, who came in second position overall in Salford and were specially selected to represent Salford at the Greater Manchester Championships. Well done children; we are extremely proud!
In our science topic this half term, Class 12 have been learning about Evolution and Inheritance and finding out about how scientists have discovered so much about the history of life. We made and carefully excavated our own fossils, before writing explanations about the process of fossilisation.
