1st July 16

Welcome to Eldon Primary School             LEP SCHOOL OF THE YEAR!                                Eldon expects the best...Let's be the best that we can be!


On Super learning day we had lots of fun trying out lots of different subjects. Here is a photo of some of us being scientists.


On the 23rd of June we won the 'Primary School of the Year Award again!!! As the existing holders of this title, it came as a bit of a shock, however, we do feel that we are definitely very deserving of this amazing accolade, again!!
Other finalists were: Korede- Who was highly commended as 'Pupil of the Year' (Year 6)
Andy Bradshaw- Our sponsor 'Unsung Hero'
Mrs Butt- Our Headteacher for her role as 'Headteacher of the Year.
This is the second year we have dominated the awards. We are already looking forwards to next years ceremony. Thank you Lancashire Evening Post!

Rocket Science

More than 8,300 schools and educational groups applied to the RHS Campaign for School Gardening Rocket Science project and received their rocket seeds on Monday 18 April.

Our school began the 35-day experiment, growing 100 seeds that have spent six months orbiting the earth, and comparing them to 100 rocket seeds that have not travelled in space. The seed packets are colour-coded, however the pupils will not know which of the two packets is which until after the results of the experiment have been published.

Year 2 recieved a letter from the Queen!

For the Queens 90th Birthday year 2 received a letter from the queen thanking us for the cards we sent her. Before we broke up for the holidays we made her some special cards to celebrate her birthday and posted them off to her. We are thrilled to get a letter back thanking us for our cards.

Summer Uniform.....

A reminder that our summer uniform should now be worn this term. For girls it is blue/white checked dresses, white leggings if legs are to be covered, royal blue cardigan/jumper with logo, white knee/ankle socks. For boys it is white polo shirts, grey trousers/mid length shorts, black/dark grey socks, royal blue jumper with logo. Please label all clothing with your child’s name and please help us to ensure that we continue to look smart in our summer uniform.

Key Stage 1 pupils Working With UCLAN
