Spring Bank Primary School

General Category


As part of Health and Sports Week, Miss Milburn and Miss Naylor organised an after-school cookery session each afternoon for a number of parents and their children. They made a selection of vegetarian/halal dishes, including butternut squash curry, risotto, chilli with guacamole and a chickpea stew; some desserts were also whipped up, including a fruit salad and American pancakes. Some of the produced used was from the Spring Bank allotment too!  All the pupils who took part learnt safe cutting and measuring skills, and there are now several budding chefs here at Spring Bank! We were joined by teachers for a final meal on Friday as a thank you for all their hard work and organisation this Health and Sports Week.

Stars of the Week!

This week certificates were awarded to 2 whole classes! Reception collected a certificate for their excellent behaviour and sensible walking during their trip to Pizza Express in Headingly, while Year 2 were awarded Star of the Week for their fantastic behaviour and listening skills during their recent trip to Cannon Hall open farm. A certificate was also awarded to this week’s football player of the week, and other stars received their certificates for consistent hard work, asking questions, being kind to others and for some crafty homework!

Well done to all our stars of the week!



Today we welcomed Andy Seed, author of children’s books including the ‘Silly Book of Side-Splitting Stuff’, filled with fun facts and jokes to tell, and ‘Prankenstein’, a mystery novel.

Andy told us some knock-knock jokes from his book, as well as some funny scientific names of animals (who knew a Magpie’s scientific name was ‘Pica Pica’?!), we tried a terrific tongue twister (Irish wristwatch) and we guessed how many Year 6 pupils it would take to balance on a see-saw with a gorilla, a crocodile and a blue whale! Lucky participants who got the correct answers were given a pencil with a moustache on the end and some were given a bookmark. Andy also told us about receiving his Blue Peter award for Best Book with Facts in 2015 and answered questions from our own budding authors about publishers and which writers inspired him.
