Life at Pinfold

Easter at Pinfold


Just before the Easter holidays, we were asked by St Barnabus church to create some things for a display for the residents and those who visit the church to look at. As you can see from the pictures below the stained glass window creations and the fabulous writing by the children was greatly appreciated and welcomed at the church. Here are some pictures below. 

Pinfold receives Platinum Sports Award

There are only 4 schools in Tameside and just 10 schools in Greater Manchester who have achieved this prestigious award and 104 nationally. This is an amazing achievement for our school and a fantastic accolade for Tameside.


To achieve this award, the schools have to qualify by having been awarded the School Games GOLD award for 5 years on the run and then submit a case study (written/ powerpoint or by video). These schools have shown that for many years they have a massive commitment to developing PE and school sport, not just with competition, but with leadership, extra curricular clubs, inclusion & staff development


We submitted a supporting video showing the amazing work we are all doing here at Pinfold to achieve this amazing award. With a big thanks to Miss Goodwin, who we wouldn't of done it without. Well done Miss Goodwin!

The Incredible Adventure of Ernest Shackleton

It's finally here! The finished product. Lots of children have worked extremely hard on this project over the last 18 months and they've created yet another wonderful Stop Motion animation using the iPad. Here at Pinfold we think it's superb and we hope you do too.



The Incredible Adventure of Ernest Shackleton

This is our trailer for our new stop motion production, The Incredible Adventures of Ernest Shackleton, this will our second stop motion production made by our Year 6 children. We first started creating the artwork that will be used for the production, then we used our iPad and the app StopMotion start creating. The trailer you can see underneath was created using iMovie on the MacBook (but the same can be created on iPad). We hope you love it just as much as we do!

Cecilia and the Halloween Ghost

This video was made using the StopMotion app on the iPad by a group of Year 6 children. The art was created by the children with the help of our fantastic school artist Tommy.
