Year 5 and 6 Literacy and ICT-
In English we have been studying The Case of the Speckled Band by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. All the children were hooked and have been working hard planning their own detective/mystery stories. To incorporate our computing skills, the children used an APP called iMovie to create trailers for their upcoming stories. Here are a few.
Class 4 Christmas craft afternoon with help from some of our parents....
On Friday 8th November, Harry, Oscar, Charles and Jack represented our school at the Junior Technology competitio between local schools. It was held at Hall Park Primary School, Lytham.

Claire Balding Author visit
On Monday 24th June, some children from Class 3 and Class 4 went to Kirkham Grammar School to meet the children's author Claire Balding. She has written several books about animals and was happy to talk to our children about how she was inspired as a writer. Some children got their books signed by the author.
The whole day playing Quidditch!
On Wednesday 10th July, Class 4 had a taste of Hogwarts. They spent the whole day learning how to play quidditch- the game played by Harry Potter at Hogwarts- played on broomsticks. It looked like lots of fun and when they had learnt the rules for playing, they all had a big tournament.
Class 4 trip to Blackpool July 2019
On Tuesday 2nd July, Year 5 and 6 went to Blackpool for their school trip. They visited Madame Tussauds and posed with some very famous people. They climbed Blackpool Tower and some children who were brave climbed to the top. They visited Blackpool Circus and watched the performers doing stunts and tricks. All the children and staff enjoyed the day and Miss Barnes said their behaviour was excellent. Here are the pictures to prove what a fabulous time they all had.

Tower Wood 2018 - Day
What an action packed day we have had! We were up at seven and started our day with cereal as well as sausage, bacon, hash browns, beans and toast...and we were set up for the day! Out the door and packing our bags by 9, we got our wetsuits and jumpers ready before heading Ghyll Scrambling!! (Climbing up a waterfall). We all had a shower underneath a waterfall and jumped in if we wanted to!
After a quick lunch we had a hike up Gummers How, a picture at the summit and home in time for tea. After tea (look at the cake...yum! As you can see the children nearly didn't get a look in!!) we have started packing up to go home tomorrow, as we have a full morning of activities planned. After showers and some board games we shall head off to bed. I think we will all be asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow.
Tower Wood 2018
We have arrived and settled in well to our temporary home. I am writing this as all the children are in bed tucked up and asleep! At 9.30pm! I think we have tired them out.
After arriving about 11am, and then making our beds (shock horror, we have all managed this so we can SO do this at home all the time now!), we had a quick lunch before starting our afternoon activities.
This afternoon we started with some tree climbing, where multiple children nearly made it to the top! All of the children had a job to do and while one was climbing the others were belaying at the bottom and giving instructions. After a few gos each we then went on the low ropes course.
Tea tonight was delicious! Lasagne with garlic bread followed by cake and custard - yum! The children set the table and cleaned up for everyone.
After tea we had a competetive game of 'head hunters' around the site, before heading back to the house for a drink and showers before bed. Tomorrow we are up at 7am ready for a day full of activities! I shall keep you updated all I can. Night Night from us! Miss Barnes.
