Irlam and Cadishead Food Bank


As you know, each year Irlam Endowed take part in Harvest celebrations. The Trussel Trust organisation have expressed the need for non-perishable foods to provide to Irlam and Cadishead Food Bank.  We have decided to make donations to this local charity.

The charity is asking for donations to give to families who are in poverty and unable to afford essential items. To show our support, we are hoping to collect donations to give to this charity. We have decided to allocate each year group with a food item to be donated, please see below for your child’s year group.

Nursery – Rice

Reception – Rice pudding

Year 1 – Pasta

Year 2 and Language Resource– Tinned potatoes/Instant Mash

Year 3 – Tinned Tomatoes

Year 4 – Instant Coffee

Year 5 – Sugar

Year 6 – Biscuits

Thank you very much for your support,  Mrs McMahon

Daily Mile
Reminder that from September 2017, pupils in Y1-Y6 will be completing a running activity for approximately 10 mins, a few times a week. Due to this ‘Daily Mile’,  we have advised that pupils may wear black trainer type shoes to school. This means they can participate in the activity without having to change shoes. Examples of the types of trainer/shoes which are appropriate are shown in the photos below. Anything similar, with black soles are acceptable.
Please remember that the children will still need to bring in a PE kit including pumps as usual, for their PE sessions.

Red Nose Day


Red Pepper

This half term some of our families have been completing healthy challenges, with the health team from Salford. They have been learning about the different food groups. Here they are playing a game with the different foods. They have also been trying lots of new foods; hummus and vegetables and making our own wraps. They have had lots of fun while learning how to keep healthy. 


Daily Mile

This term, children in Year 4 and Year 2 are trialling the Daily Mile. Every day children will do 15 minutes of non-stop jogging around the school field or playground. The Daily Mile is something that started in Scotland and the benefits to children’s health and wellbeing are being widely reported. It is hoped that it will have a positive impact on the children of IEPS. If successful we will be looking at doing it in more classes next year.


Professor Brainstorm


On Tuesday 25th April  2017 Professor Brainstorm came to visit Irlam Endowed Primary School.

Year 1 and Year 2 had great fun watching the ‘Magical Science Experience’. We particularly enjoyed the disappearing water trick. The exploding Pringles containers using liquid nitrogen gave us quite a shock too.

‘Professor Brainstorm put liquid into the Pringle pot. The lid popped off and it really made me laugh’. 

Melody Year 2


Year 3 and Year 4 were thrilled to watch the ‘Amazing Sound and Light Show’. The ‘Boomwhackers’ reinforced our learning on sound and pitch from class. We enjoyed learning about optical illusions, especially with Einstein’s face.

‘I liked the sound experiments. Before I watched the show I had made a basic loom band guitar. But after I watched Professor Brainstorm’s experiments I knew how to change the pitch of the strings on my home-made guitar.’

William Year 4


Year 5 and 6 really enjoyed the ‘Fantastic Forces’ show. They were especially pleased to see the famous ‘Tablecloth Trick’ and now know how they can perform this at home. They enjoyed watching the variety of powered rockets, especially the ‘Potato Gun’.

‘I liked how Professor Brainstorm used a tablet to launch a rocket. He added water to a tablet and as they mixed they made a chemical reaction. It produced so much gas that it shot the rocket off’.

Lily-Rose Year 5


After school we invited Nursery and Reception parents and carers to come along and watch the ‘Magical Science Show’ together with their children. We particularly enjoyed watching the effects of immersing bananas and flowers into liquid nitrogen.

 It was lovely to see lots of other examples of fun, science activities that parents and carers can enjoy with their children at home. 

‘It was a fun and enjoyable way to explore science. My son loved getting involved with the sound experiment.’

    This half term, Year 2 we will be learning all about Australia, thinking about culture, traditional Australian tales, as well as plants and animals. We will use this information to make comparisons to England. We are sure that Year 2 will love learning about a different part of the world, especially as there is so much to take in!
