Meet our Urban Crew members for 2019-2020!
Urban Crew are a specially selected group of year 6 pupils who will take part in school initiatives, workshops and community based activities throughout the school year. Urban Crew is a citizenship programme that is run in conjunction with Manchester Communications Academy and Northwards Housing.
Keep checking our page to see the great things we will be a part of throughout the year.
Urban Crew members have an 'Urban Crew duty' to do every week. They patrol our school at lunch times and check for hazards both indoors and outdoors such as coats on the floor in cloakrooms and litter in our playgrounds. They are also in charge of emptying our paper recycling bins that were brought about via a decision made by school council last year. Another important aspect of their role is to look out for other children that may be lonely or need help in some way. You will see them wearing their green jackets and blue caps. Come and say hello!
Urban Crew Workshops
Throughout the year urban crew will take part in workshops provided by staff from Manchester Communications Academy that will centre around identity, community, citizenship, environment and enterprise. Have a look at our most recent workshops here:
Greater Manchester Youth Network Project
Urban crew are very excited to be taking part in a social action project funded by the GMYN organisation. They have £350 to use for a community based project. They are working with Mrs Potter to help bring her idea of providing a Christmas meal for the needy and the elderly of the local community to life. They have been busy planning this in workshops provided at school by GMYN. They have designed and made the invitations, and have begun to make some Christmas table decorations. Take a look at some of the things they have done in preparation so far:
Community Christmas Meal
On Saturday December 7th Urban Crew finally saw the the fruits of their labour with a wonderful Christmas lunch being served to members of the local community. The Crew members arrived early in their Christmas outfits to greet and seat the guests. Guests were then treated to some beautiful Christmas Carol's from the choir and Mrs Nish as well as a game of Bingo after lunch hosted by Mrs Henry's!
Brookdale View Care home Visit.
Urban Crew and the school choir went along to Brookdale View Care home and spent some time there talking to the residents. They helped to serve refreshments and have a chat to them. They finished with some wonderful Christmas singing with the school choir and Mrs Nish. The residents had a lovely time and thanked the children for bringing some Christmas cheer to them for a couple of hours!
Extended School's Activities Day at MCA...
Urban Crew were invited to Manchester Communications Academy to take part in their annual Extended School's Activities Day where they got to experience some keyboard lessons in the music room.
