Ambassadors for India Project
Shakespeare primary are very excited about linking with a school in India. Our link school is the Sushila Birla Girl's School in Calcutta.
After many applications from our junior children, we have chosen 8 Ambassadors (pictures below) and 8 Deputies to take part in the Project. Congratulations to the Ambassadors and thanks to everyone who applied.
The Ambassadors will be skyping the children at the Birla School to talk about each other's lives, families and festivals. They will then report back to the rest of our school and to the British Council Website.
For more information and to BLOG between the two schools, please see the link on the left hand menu.
WYRE SWIMMING GALA - FEB 2015
Our wonderful swimming team took part in the Wyre Schools Swimming Gala on 11th February.
They gave outstanding performances in all events and for the first time ever, the Shakespeare Team were in the medals!
Rose took Gold for her winning performance in the Girls Backstroke Event, and Shaun, Bradley, Lewis and Sam took Gold in the Boys Relay Event.
With valiant effort from all involved, the Shakespeare Team came a marvellous second overall, with Stanah Primary School narrowly beating us ! In all, 12 schools from around Wyre took part.
Well done to our fantastic team and to all the dedicated staff and parents who played a part.
Tales From Around The World.
Children and staff enjoyed a visit from the very enchanting Spellbinder in January. Spellbinder told us magnificent stories from different cultures all over the world.
We listened to ‘The Enchanted Mountain’, a Japanese Folk Tale, ‘The Magic Fish Hook’, a Myth from New Zealand and ‘Clever Aisha’, a tale from Morocco.
Spellbinder taught us about morals and different cultures. Everyone enjoyed dancing to a variety of songs. Some children joined Spellbinder on stage to dance and dress up!!
As always we thank Spellbinder for his superb storytelling, he kept us entertained for hours!
RSPB Big Birdwatch
Class R had a visit from Mr Harding from Cardinal Allen High School. He introduced us to the national RSPB Birdwatching Week.
We identified some birds and then we made some natural bird feeders.
Thank you Mr Harding. We really enjoyed it.

To mark the Centenary of the start of the First World War, we had a visit on Monday from the accomplished mezzo soprano, Patricia Hammond and her accompanianist, Matt Redman.
They entertained the Junior children and staff with a selection of songs from the First World War era "If you were the only girl in the world", "It's a long way to Tipperary", "Over There" and "Somewhere in France"
The children sang along with "Pack up your troubles" and had a very memorable morning.
In French this week the children were comparing Remembrance in France and England.
