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.

The Spellbinder

This year, as always, the KS2 children were mesmerised at the wonderful story telling talents of The Spellbinder as they watched in awe and wonder.

He told of the Greek Myth in which Perseus sets off to take the head of Medusa, The Gorgon, in order to win the freedom of his mother from the evil clutches of King Polydectus who has set him this, seemingly impossible challenge.  

He also told a haunting Scottish Legend about a shy and lonely fisherman who finds his life turned upside down as he is caught up in a mystical experience which brings both great joy and sorrow. 

His final tale was a European Legend in which two quarrelling Knights set out in search of a quest of valour and in so doing find themselves as brothers in arms upon a quest greater than they could ever have imagined.

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves as you can see in this collection of photographs.

Golden Ticket Winners

This term the lucky Golden Ticket winners had a fantastic afternoon learning lots of different circus skills.

Take a look at the fun they all had.

Year 6 Science

In science we have been studying light and how it travels.  To discover how shadows are formed, we created a shadow presentation using card puppets with transluscent sections.  

Here are some photographs of the children's work. 

Football –Shakespeare Vs Stannah

Following the downpour on Thursday 5th November, the pitch at Shakespeare Primary School was very skiddy and very muddy. An unbeaten Shakespeare side met with an unbeaten Stannah team for one of the most important matches of the season.

Shakespeare started slow and sluggish, but soon grew into the game and it wasn’t long before Ethan Campbell scored with a goal from a set piece. Stannah soon hit back with a goal of their own and at the end of the first half the score was deadlocked at 1-1.

The second half started with high intensity and saw some good challenges from Shakespeare, however, against the run of play, Stannah scored early on. Shakepeare reacted by pressing forward which left space for Stannah’s winger space at the back for their third goal. Shakespeare refused to give up and in the dying minutes, Keanan scored his sixth goal of the season so far – and a superb one at that!

Unfortunately, time wasn’t on Shakespeare’s side and the final score was 3-2 for Stannah. Man of the Match was awarded to Harry, but a special mention was also given to Nathaniel Treece-Birch, for an excellent performance in the Shakespeare goal, making a number of incredible saves that kept Shakespeare in the game.

Shakespeare left the field as darkness fell and the bonfire night fireworks began; tired, muddy, and in need of a hot bath!

Football – Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Vs Shakespeare


On Thursday 5th November, Shakespeare Girls football team travelled to Blackburn for a game against Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, who had to suddenly round up a team of girls after the team they were originally going to play had to cancel.

The opposing team tried their best, showing some excellent football skills, however, the Shakespeare girls played magnificently, winning 7-0. Goals were scored by Gracie Slater, who fired four into the back of the net, with Mollie Mullender, Faith Glasgow and Morgan Shewan contributing to the final score, each with a great goal of their own.

Our Lady of Perpetual Succour had some great players and showed some superb skill and overall, both teams played great – and due to the fact that it was pouring down with rain, the drenched players were invited by the hosts into the school for a cup of hot chocolate and a biscuit.

All of the team were awarded player of the match as they all performed to a fantastic standard.

Well done Shakey Girls!

Also, a big THANK YOU to Mr Clarke, who surprised the team with a trip to Ewood Park, home of former Premier League champions Blackburn Rovers, for an exclusive tour of the stadium.

Year 4 Science

For our Science Topic ‘Teeth and Digestion’ we have been very lucky to have Mrs Baldwin come in to school and teach us about teeth! Mrs Baldwin is a local Dental Nurse. She has taught us about the different parts of our teeth and their functions. She has explained to us how to take care of our teeth and how to prevent plaque and gum disease. We would like to thank Mrs Baldwin for coming and speaking to us, it has really helped our understanding! 

World Poetry Day

'On Thursday the 8th of October Shakespeare school celebrated World Poetry Day. Class R spent time writing and learning their very own poem called 'Light'. It was Class R's first big performance in front of the rest of school. They did exceptionally well- we are very proud of how smart they looked and how well they recited the poem! Just take a look...'


Have a look at a children all enjoying poetry day.
