Zeph Report is our new online blog from one of our pupils Zeph. It was Zephs idea to gather recent happenings around Briscoe Lane Academy and write a blog about them each week to let you know what is going on in classrooms and around school on a regular basis.
School Update - 27/01/2017
Recently there have been some new clubs made across the school, theese new clubs include the Friendship Club and the Pokemon Club. Theese clubs are for very specific interests, the Pokemon club, for example, is for people who are fans of Pokemon and for people who want to chat and talk about Pokemon.
The Friendship Club is for people who want to make new friends and talk and meet new people from around their school and different year groups. Many classes from our school have been visiting Newton Heath Library recently to take part in exciting new activities such as using green screens and creating music with Garageband. My class was able to make our own stop motion animation films using playdough, it was so fun!
Come back next week for more information and news from Briscoe Lane Academy and Zeph News!
