Promoting British Values

Through its curriculum, extra-curricular activities, teaching and learning, Springside Primary School will promote British values. By doing so, we will ensure that all learners understand the values that have traditionally underpinned British society. The teaching of these values will promote cohesiveness within our school and community. We will prepare pupils for life in England where the population has an increasingly rich diversity of backgrounds, origins, beliefs and cultures by promoting the values on which our society has been built. By teaching pupils these values we will help all to become good citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Assembly Theme of the Week - Teamwork

posted 12 May 2018, 07:45 by Gillian Thornicroft

This week we have been thinking about TEAMWORK. We watched a video of a group of ants working together to move a huge piece of cake and we watched a Meerkat looking out for danger to protect his family. On Friday we watched a video of a formula 1 team changing the wheels on a car in less than a couple of seconds! and we also watch a video of a formula 1 team who were not communicating well and it took a long time to get the wheels changed. 
We thought about how we can work as a team in school and how teamwork can help us all achieve. 

Children's Book Week 2018

posted 5 May 2018, 08:25 by Gillian Thornicroft

This week we celebrated Children's Book week in our assemblies.
I shared my memories of the classic Mr Man book 'Mr Bump'. This book brings back good memories as I used to read it to my nephew when he was a baby. I love the times where I can read my nephews a book before they go to sleep. 
Mr James shared some classic children's poems.    

Our Heart at Bury Hospice

As I mentioned in a newsletter a while ago, we have been awarded a heart at Bury Hospice because of all the money we have raised over the last few years. We were invited to put our heart on the wall and to have our photograph taken. Please keep an eye out in The Bury Times as the hospice are going to try and get the picture into the newspaper.

This week, we all walked to Christ Church Walmersley for our Easter Service. It was great to see the church so full of children and family members. Well done to all the Y6 pupils who delivered their readings beautifully clear and loud.  Year 1 and 2 children also performed their song and poem very well. We had some lovely written feedback from the visitors who said you all behaved and sang beautifully.
