Special Award for Ms Williams

Our Chair of Governors Ms Jackie Williams received a special governor award at the end of the Summer Term. Congratulations on behalf of the pupils, parents, teachers and Governors!

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.

DoJo

Congratulations Year 2/3 as all your parents have signed up to the online DoJo rewards system for your children! Thank you teachers for uploading pictures of what is happening in class and in school as the action happens!! Great communication!

Parent and child learning opportunities

This term there are many parent and child learning opportunities being run in school in the form of courses. Early Years parents and Year 1 parents are invited into school on Friday 23rd September for the day. The course is all about phonics and will help you with teaching your child at home and supporting them with their reading. There will be an opportunity to work with your children on this day.

European Languages Day

On Monday, we look forward to celebrating European Languages Day. Many of
the diverse European Languages spoken and some spoken by our children will be celebrated
by the Junior children including French, Turkish, Hungarian, Polish and Italian.

Annual Parental Questionnaire

Our annual parental questionnaire went out last Friday and many of you have completed
this and returned it with your comments. If you have not already done so, please spare 5 minutes to complete this and send it back as soon as possible and no later than Friday 30th September and then these can be processed by Lancashire County Council. I will let you know a summary of findings when these become available later in the term. The feedback so far has been wonderful!
