Trip To The Theatre Of Dreams
These children had the once in a lifetime experience of playing on the Old Trafford pitch. This is very unusual as the old Trafford turf is rarely used for anything other than match days.
The children were welcomed onto the pitch with their school name read over the PA system and their school name flashing on the banner boards. The children had a fabulous day playing football activities on the hallowed turf whilst their parents watched from the stands.
This is a memory that they will truly never forget. Mr Scrutton and Mrs Aitken enjoyed the experience too.

Walk To School Week
As part of Living Streets, Walk Once a Week campaign, Strider (the big foot mascot) joined the children from Irlam Endowed Primary School's walking bus, on their daily walk to school. It was a nice surprise for the children as a reward for walking to school every day. As well as hopefully encouraging more families from the area to walk to school.
This is the second year that children from Irlam Endowed have been earning monthly badges just by walking to school. This has had a great impact on the children, making them healthier and happier.
Noah said that having Strider with them was fun. I have never had a mascot come to school before.. I like walking to school as I can meet my friends and have a chat with them.
29th January to 2nd February, Irlam Endowed celebrated our Anti-Bullying week. We started our week with a whole school assembly which reflected on how we are all the same but also unique in our own ways. Each child received a badge and continued to look at anti-bullying themes throughout the week during their PSHE lessons.
Mad Science Assembly
On Monday 15th January 2018 we enjoyed an awe- inspiring visit from a mad scientist during a special assembly on Science.
During the show, staged by Mad Science, the children learnt how to get an egg into a conical flask (‘Eggbert’s House) using a change in air pressure as the temperature inside the flask changes. Mrs Banks was fantastic at demonstrating how to remove the egg from the flask.
With the help of Professor Isaac we also learnt about testing the pH of a chemical using cabbage by extracting the coloured chemicals from the cabbage. It was fascinating to watch that when acids are added to the mixture, it will turn pink, and when alkalis are added, the mixture turns green.
Professor Sophie had the chance to be a ‘Jedi Warrior’. When she touched the Plasma Ball, the electricity from the ball moved through Professor Sophie and the light bulb on its way to the ground, causing it to light up. We learnt that Nicola Tesla invented a light bulb without wires using a glowing gas called Neon to light it up.
At the end of the assembly the mad scientist demonstrated how Butane can be trapped into the bubbles of soapy water and then set on fire. The children were told that this part of the show was not to be copied or tried at home.
Thank-you Mad Science. The children were really impressed and have not stopped talking about the amazing show. There is a real buzz about Science in school. We will look forward to you returning.
Children In Need
This year, Irlam Endowed went spotty for Children In Need.
The school councillors packed away the food donated into boxes and helped Miss Smid put them onto the minibus. Our year 4 councillors went with Miss Smid to the local food bank where they were busy sorting and labelling the foods.
