Well done to all those girls and boys from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 who got up early on Saturday mornings to complete the courses at Buile Hill Park or Bolton Road playing field. St Philip’s are especially proud of the 16 runners who braved the snow, sleet and freezing conditions at Bolton Road on the 9th December. The season has now ended with our Year 3-4 girls’ team narrowly missing out on coming third. Well done to Isla for achieving silver as a year 4 runner!

This week the whole school are learning about the theme of ‘Social Justice’. Class 11 have spent the morning working on a dance based around the classic poem No Man is and Island. They have learnt how unity is essential in our society…
Today is the day that our wonderful Y6 pupils leave us. Over the past few weeks they have celebrated with trips, discos, masses, dances and many more events. We hope that the video below serves as a reminder of their brilliance!

Last Friday, on 14th October 2016, a group of our KS2 pupils ventured into Manchester to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to our city. They were fortunate enough to get to the front of the crowd;the rest is history! Enjoy reliving this unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience which our pupils were so grateful to receive. Thank you to Miss Lavelle, Miss McNamara and Mrs Aldred for taking the pupils…
Happy St.Patrick’s Day! Over the last few weeks, Miss McNamara’s seven year old niece, Kate McNamara, has been teaching Class 4 how to say Irish phrases over a video link from Dublin. This was part of a competition to teach as many people as she could Irish phrases. Kate won the competition and her teachers were so impressed with her efforts that the media got in touch and asked if they could show her video clip teaching Class 4 on the Irish news. Class 4 are elated to have starred on the Irish news and according to them, they are “famous”! Have a peek at the video below to see some snippets of the video links and the news clip. The link to the actual news clip is: http://trte.rte.ie/news2day/ Enjoy! 🍀🍀🍀

The whole school had an absolute ball celebrating Chinese New Year! Calligraphy, Chinese paper folding, lantern making and traditional lion dancing were just some of the excellent activities taking place around the school. A huge thank you to all the parents who supported the day; it was clear a huge effort had been made judging by the fantastic outfits the children arrived to school in. A whole school Lion Dance performance, courtesy of the Manchester Chinese Cultural Centre, left children completely mesmorised; some of our staff and children also had the opportunity to take part in it too. Have a peek at some of the highlights in the video below.
