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!

Last Choir Singing

The choir performed in Lancashire's singing event of the Year - The Last Choir Singing Competition.  This competition for all junior schools in Lancashire is aimed to showcase musical education throughout the region.  Their heat was held at the Marine Hall on the 10th March with the first two placed choirs going through to the final at King George's Hall in Blackburn.

Not only did they win their heat scooping £250 in music vouchers and a glass trophy, but they were given a special award for Most Artistic Choir providing a further £125 in vouchers.

Huge congratulations to Joanna Newson for an outstanding performance and to the children for their dedication and commitment.

Thank you to Leanne Farrer for her immaculate accompaniment and to Claire Savage for all her help and support.


A huge well done to the fabulous winners of this years Young Seasiders Competition: Callum, Millie, Casey and Ellena.  They were a credit to our school during the photography shoot at Blackpool and the Fylde College.  We are looking forward to the prize giving presentation evening at the Opera House on Thursday 10th March.


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.
