Spring Bank Primary School

Well done Spring Bank Primary for raising £158.80 on Jeans for Genes day! On Friday 18th September 2015, the children wore denim to support children affected by genetic disorders, in memory of former pupil Rosie Ismail.


On Monday Nathanya Laurent, a local resident who works for the registered charity Volunteer for Community Development Nepal, came to talk with children in assembly. As you will know Nepal has suffered and continues to suffer from the effects of earthquakes. Nathanya has written a letter below to all parents/carers about her charity appeal. (more…)

21st March is World Down Syndrome Day. Wendy Uttley from Down Syndrome Training and Support Service, Bradford gave an excellent assembly to the whole school. We all learnt a lot, including all about the extra chromosome number 23 – (which is why World Down Syndrome Day is on 21st day of the 3rd month!)



Kitty (Y3) and Paige (Y6) battled in the grand final to become Spring Bank’s Top Banana! Both girls are experts at this game and the final was really exciting to watch. Paige shouted ‘Bananas!’ to win the game a fraction of a second before Kitty in a nail-biting finish – she now goes on to battle against other ‘Best of the Bunch’ children from other schools in a series of online rounds. Congratulations to Paige and well done Kitty! See you next year, everyone, for the next Bananagrams challenge!

   The race is on to find Spring Bank’s Top Banana! Sixty four children across KS2 have signed up and are competing at lunchtime to find our Best of Bunch, who will then go through to battle in online rounds with other winners across the country.

   Congratulations to these children who are through to the next round: Joe, Amina, Kitty, Sajjad, Orla and India and an extra-special mention for Eden, who took part in a game with a nail-biting finish and was only just pipped to the post by a very skillful Sajjad!

   Best words so far – Joe’s hugely long ‘lavender’ and Kitty’s enormously impressive ‘roux’!

Huge congratulations go to the year 6 team who came third winning themselves bronze medals and a tropthy in the Maths Challenge.

This amazing achievement by James, Maisey, Ruby and Paige is especially brilliant as it was a place gained from competing with 24 other teams at the Grammar School. Well done!
