What's been going  on lately at Shakespeare?


                     SCROLL DOWN AND SEE....

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.

Red Nose Day

The school looked like a sea of red for Comic Relief as we all wore red clothes along with noses and various other merchandise and we raised a fantastic £418.46.  Well done to everyone.

Take a look at our assembly.

French Workshop


On the 21st February Mrs Bielec, Mme Jefferson, Miss Clarke, Miss Mooney, Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Hesk held a French workshop to inform parents about how French is talked in school and how the Erasmus French exchange has impacted school. Children from year 6 were on hand to help, teachers from other schools attended and children and parents took part in French games and activities after a short informative presentation.


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.

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.

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!

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.
