Special Days

Author Visit


Year 5 and 6 were very lucky to have a visit from an author on Wednesday. Ralph Timberlake had written a book all about space called Blast off to the Moon. He told the children all about the history of space and answered lots of interesting questions. The children who had purchased the book then got it signed by Ralph. 

Two of our Year 5 and 6 children were featured on BBC Radio Lancashire. They were interviewed about their opinions on the book and they got chance to share their knowledge about space with the listeners. 

International Day


On Wednesday, we had a special international day in school. Each class had focused on a country for the past two weeks and we celebrated and shared this learning. 

The children were split into eight groups and travelled around the school to the different countries to take part in activities linked to that country.

In England, the children took part in an African dance whilst in Spain, the children worked on their footballing skills. In New Zealand the children learnt the tricky art of origami and in Egypt, the children took part in running races. They were nearly as fast as Usain Bolt.

In India, the children had a competition of mummifying one person in their group whilst in Canada, the children had a chopstick challenge! In Brazil, the children made and decorated cuckoo clocks whilst in China the children decorated 'Day of the Dead' masks. 

The parents then came into school to see all of the children's hard work. 

Online Safety Day


On Tuesday 5th February, the whole school took part in Online Safety Day. We thought about how to keep our personal information secret and how to create strong passwords.

Years 4, 5 and 6 had a special workshop from Life Education called bCyberwise. The children had to think about how to make the correct choices when using the internet.

Our Well with Aqua Aid


We are really please that our well has been built in partnership with Aqua Aid. 

Take a look at the picture below of our well with our school name and mission statment on it. 

World Book Day


We had lots of fun on World Book Day dressing up as our favourite character from a book. All of the children (and teachers) looked amazing! Thank you for the effort you put in.

We talked about our favourite books and read extracts from them to our friends. Later in the day, the teachers switched classrooms and read their favourite book (or part of it) to a different class. 

The children then planned and wrote their own short story and had some fantastic ideas!

Thank you to everyone who donated a book they no longer read at home. Our school library is now full with new and exciting books for the children to read.

Have a look at the fantastic outfits below.


Grandparent's Day


The children had a fantastic day on Friday performing something special for Grandparents and special friends. 

Some classes played fantastic songs on the glockenspiel whilst other classes shared a song or a story.

The Year 6 children provided tea and cakes for the special guests and sat with them during the performances.

We hope the grandparents and special guests enjoyed watching.
