May Day Celebrations

Despite being a little breezy, the sun shone on our wonderful children as they performed their country dancing displays.  Class R looked amazing dressed in their finery as they paraded through the yard. Year 6 then opened proceedings with the traditional Maypole dance followed by the rest of the school in turn.  To close, the children danced with family members who had come along to watch, but who were very willing to join in the fun.  A fabulous way to spend an afternoon.     

Clean for the Queen

3H and 4H have taken part in the Clean for the Queen project by picking up litter from Manor Road with the Wyre Rangers.  There will be a Fleetwood beach clean on Thursday 9 June.  If you would like to take part, children and parents from various Fleetwood schools will be meeting at 10am at the boating lake.

Wyre & Fylde High 5's Netball Tournament

Well done to Shakespeare Netball Team who are now runners up in the Wyre and Fylde High 5's Tournament. The team won their place in the finals by winning the Thornton Cleveleys Netball League. We had an amazing afternoon playing some tough matches against all the other area league winners and fought our way through to the final.  It was a fast paced, exciting and highly skilled last match but we were beaten in the end by an excellent team.  The children were fantastic and tried their very best to the final whistle.  Another proud day for Shakespeare Sport.

During History Week, Year 4 have been studying the Romans.  Children were asked to create a Roman shield for homework.  Mr Howarth and Miss Clarke were absolutely blown away by the amount of effort and creativity the children went to, to produce their shields.  Having looked at Roman army formations, the children were given the opportunity to use their shields to re-enact a Roman march and the famous Roman Tortoise.  The Roman Tortoise is when soldiers in front and at the sides interlocked their shields.  The soldiers in the back lines placed their shields over their heads to form a protective "shell" over the top of the men.  Watch the video to see how well the children did!

Fleetwood,Thornton & Cleveleys Netball Rally 2016

Huge congratulations to the Netball Team who once again have won the 2016 Netball Rally.  They played six matches and were undefeated.

World Book Day

Our children and staff put in an amazing effort on World Book Day.  Have a look at all the famous characters and the fun they had.

Wild Nature Club

Wild Nature Club have been using the outdoor area to learn about tracks and trails and minibeasts.  We have had a go at making birds nests using only one hand as a beak - very tricky!  We have made pine cone bird feeders and nest boxes for the birds in our outside area.  We have also used natural materials to make our own animal art work.

Swimming Gala


On Wednesday 10th February a swimming gala took place at the Fleetwood YMCA at 4pm. At the gala there were several schools competing in a number of races, as well as a huge crowd of spectators showing their support for the athletes.

There were many wins (and a few defeats!) and eventually, it came down to the final. Everyone sat down in their matching green jumpers and waited for our race to begin and cheer on our fellow teammates. Sam Hall managed to make second place in his race and Bradley McWilliams secured a first place finish. The boys freestyle relay finished in first place too!

Overall, Sacred Heart came third, St Wulstans finished second and Stannah came first, and even though we didn’t make the podium, we all agreed that it was a fantastic event. A big thank you to everyone who came to support us!

ECO Fashion Show

We hosted a fantastic Eco Fashion Show and were joined by other schools to create fun clothes from waste materials.  The designs were spectacular and the children enjoyed showing them off on the catwalk. 


Year 6 Audio Books

To celebrate World Book Day, Year 6 children have recorded some audio books during ICT for young children to listen to. Press play and prepare to be entertained.

Look in the ICT area for more.


Year 6 Author Visit 

On Friday 5th February, ten year 6 children went to Cardinal Allen High School to meet the award winning British children's writer, Gareth. P. Jones.  They had a fabulous morning talking to him and listening as he read extracts from his book.  The children were able to buy a copy of his book which he signed.

Shakey's Got Talent

It was another year of amazing talent from our key stage 2 pupils,

17 acts went through to the semi-final with 8 through to the final.

The judges were Mr Fuce - Governor, Mrs Lund - Rotary,

Mrs Williams - Retired Governor & Captian Cod - FTFC Mascot!

The finalists were a mixture of talents such as gymnastics, singing, keyboard and piano playing.


3rd place went to Vivian Shi 10 yrs old who played a beautiful piece on the piano,

2nd place went to Ava Parker 10 yrs old who sang Take Me Home by Jess Glynne and 1st place went to the act 'Tempo' who are Anthony Holden who played the electric guitar and Nathaniel Treece-Birch on the drums both aged 10yrs. They played a rock number that was their own original piece.


This was our 7th SGT and the judges said that the talent just keeps getting better every year as they found it hard to place 1st & 2nd as they were both well deserving of the winning title.


These acts will now be invited to enter the Fleetwood High School Mini Talent Spotters competition and the 'M' Factor at Millfield High School later this school year.


This event is organised by the schools Anti-Bullying Committee to raise awareness of how everyone should be treated as an equal and everyone has a talent. To always tell an adult if you are worried yourself or be an upstander and tell an adult if you are worried about someone else.
