World Book Day

The staff and children looked fabulous dressed as their favourite character for World Book Day.  

Here are the winners.

When you are next in school, take a look at the officeTV to see the rest of the school.

Shakey's Got Talent

It was another year of amazing talent from our pupils who showed what they were made of in the annual Shakey’s Got Talent show.

Sixteen acts were whittled down to a semi-final to find eight finalists for the ultimate show at the school. They showcased singing, playing musical instruments, acting and dancing in the event which is now in its eighth year. They performed in front of a panel of judges – former Shakespeare Primary School headteacher Margaret Lund on behalf of Fleetwood Rotary Club, former pupil and actor Ryan Wilkinson, Fleetwood Town FC mascot Captain Cod and Jason Sharpe, the club’s senior sports development officer.

The judges said that the talent just gets better every year. The youngsters looked and sounded incredibly professional and some well planned outfits – even a tuxedo! – added a touch of glamour to the competition. The winner was Millie, who sang Part of Your World from the Little Mermaid. Runner-up was Gracie-Mae who sang The Climb by Miley Cyrus, and in third place were White Lions, who comprised Asa on drums, Kelbie on guitar and Jack singing Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes. These acts will now be invited to enter the ‘M’ Factor at Millfield High School in Thornton later in the year.

The competition is to raise awareness of anti-bullying.




On Tuesday 31st January we were visited by Spellbinder with an interactive storytelling performance.  

Thank you to the Friends of Shakespeare for funding this visit.

The KS1 children were entertained with fantasies and fairy tales and KS2 children with myths and legends.

Have a look at the fun they had.

In the lead up to Christmas, Elite Choir were very busy learning Christmas songs. In the last week of term we performed at various nursing homes, Fleetwood Library, Fleetwood Rotary Christmas meal and also our own Carol Service.

Take a look.

Reindeer Week Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who bought antlers, raffle tickets or donated to the Reindeer Week Fundraiser for Brian House Trinity Hospice.  Not only did we have fun but we raised over £540 to go to this very worthy cause.

Talent Spotters

Earlier this month Fleetwood High School held a talent spotting competition and primary schools were invited to enter.  

With the vast amount of talent we have at Shakespeare, it is no surprise that Taylor from year 5 won the primary section singing Electicity from the musical Billy Elliot. In addition to getting the top spot, Millie and Georgina  from year 6 picked up second prize with their version of A Thousand Miles from The Twilight Saga.

Take a look at Taylor and his winning performance.

Harvest Collection - Fylde Food Bank .  


Thank you to everyone who donated to Harvest Collection, we had a fabulous response and this week we had Colin Brown from the Fylde Food Bank come into school.  Colin sent the following message:

I am writing to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU for your support of the Fleetwood Food Bank with your very generous donation of food following your recent Harvest Festival collection, in fact it was a huge collection that needed two cars to take it all away.  It was a pleasure to come into school to meet you and say a few words to the children about the food bank.  Without the support of schools, churches and individuals we would not be albe to provide about 45 food parcels each week which help to feed over 110 local people, adults and children who can not afford to put food on their table for whatever reasons as we do not receive any financial assistance from any statutory organisation and we are completely dependent o voluntary donations.

Many thanks once again,

Colin Brown

Secretary, SVP Fleetwood Food Bank

Wild Nature Club

Wild nature Club have been having a wild time in our Outdoor Area, CLICK HERE to have a look at all the fun things we have been doing!

Operation Christmas Child

The children and their families have been extremely busy getting items together to send to the shoebox appeal, Operation Christmas Child. The Children have either wrapped and filled their own boxes or brought in items to go into donated empty shoe boxes. All of the generous offerings have meant we have been able to send off over 130 Christmas shoeboxes. On behalf of all the staff we would like to say a huge thank you for all the donations, they will make some children so happy this Christmas. What a great way to kick off the season of giving! 


French Exchange

Miss Clarke and Miss Mooney had an absolutely fantastic learning experience in France. They have both learnt so much about the French language and how to teach it effectively in school. During the trip to Carcassonne Miss Mooney and Miss Clarke took part in lots of cultural activities and language lessons at the local college. This trip has also given the school opportunity to link with a school just outside of Toulouse in Lanta. Miss Mooney and Miss Clarke spent a day at the primary school visiting different classes and teaching. Miss Mooney had a great time sharing ‘Pete the Cat’ with the Nursery and Reception classes. Miss Clarke also gave a presentation of Shakespeare School to a selection of the junior classes. We are excited about our link with France and hope to continue to share ideas and projects.



A Midsummer Night's Dream

This year talented drama children from Shakespeare School have been working in co-operation with Blackpool Grand and The RSC together with eight other schools in the local area.  The result was a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream premiered at a sharing event.  We also had a an exhibition at Larkholme High School to showcase the writing skills of last year's Year 6 children.

A midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare between 1590 and 1597. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (The mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

The play was divided into nine sections and one given to each of the schools.  Take a look at our contribution.
