Please keep this date free in your diary and watch this space for further details.
We have had some good feedback regarding courses that parents would like to attend in school. Mrs Sandland is training a group of parents who will help with hearing readers in our classes next week. If you feel you would like to assist with hearing readers in school, please let us know. Preston College are also providing some dates for phonic, reading and maths awareness training for parents. Again, please watch this space for further information.
Miss Dixon’s class gave an outstanding performance on Tuesday’s Film Competition afternoon. They performed The Great Fire of London and showed off their story telling skills, as well as playing their ocarinas., which are our brand new musical instruments in school. As a treat they visited Odeon Cinema and watched Mr Peabody and Sherman. Two lucky children from all junior classes were also nominated to attend and help out the younger children. Well done to all classes as every performance was GREAT!
Year 6 have visited Miss Bell’s stables this week as their reward for collecting the most Gems in our Gem Project. Please read below what the Gems stand for. Thank you Mr Moss, Miss Bell and Miss Munro for organising this. Year 6 were also in action at the Guild Hall taking part in the Athletics tournament. We were in the Lancashire Evening Post for this event too.

This week was Friendship Week. Everyone has had super fun learning names, playing kindly and helping each other. Year 6 in their assembly helped us to understand what bullying is and what we can do about it. We have also looked at internet safety too.
Next week we are having a week looking at Road Safety and awareness.
