Send My Friends to School
To support the National Campaign to encourage World Leaders to get every child into Primary Education by 2015, all of our children in school made paper friends. They linked them together to make a Friend Chain and sent it to our local MP, Eric Ollerenshaw - who we hope will pass on our message to World Leaders.
This year the campaign is focussing on disabled children. At the moment 57 million children around the world are missing out on school - 24 million of these are children with disabilities.

Shakespeare does Strictly at Blackpool Tower Ballroom
Last week our Year 5 pupils took to the floor at Blackpool Tower Ballroom to perform all of the dances they learned in their Ballroom Lessons this year.
They joined dozens of other dancers having afternoon tea in the ballroom and danced to the magnificent Wurlitzer. Everyone had a brilliant time and the children were given a round of applause from the other dancers !
The children then watched the Circus at the Tower.

SHAKESPEARE PRIMARY SCHOOL
Shakespeare Primary School was officially opened on 16 June 1934.
On Monday 16th June 2014 we celebrated 80 Glorious Years of our school by holding a Birthday service in the playground! We were joined by several ex pupils who were here when the school opened, and many ex-staff and Head Teachers.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Wyre, Councillor & Mrs Shewan joined Mr James Wright, our School Advisor and Mr Neil MacSymons, Chair of Governors in wishing the school a Happy Birthday and continued success.
The Choir sang On the Sunny Side of the Street and an old school favourite - I am a Small Part of the World and the School Band played a selection of pieces including The Shakey March No 1 - written by Mr John Lyne, our Brass Teacher.
The Head Boy & Girl from the current year 6 and the New Head Boy & Girl for next year read some memories of Shakespeare from ex pupils.
Mrs Lynne Atkinson, Chair of Friends of Shakespeare, presented the invited guests and all the children with a pin badge commemorating the schools 80th Birthday.
The oldest and youngest pupils from school were chosen to raise the new Shakespeare Flag.
Reverend Anne Jeffrey gave a Thanksgiving Prayer and the Ceremony finished with everyone joining in the hymn All things Bright and Beautiful.
The invited guests were given a tour of the school and visited an exhibition of photographs from the school archives. These included pictures from the original opening, staff photos from years gone by !, class photos from the 1960's and 1970's and Junior Summer Play and Infant Christmas Play programmes and photographs spanning almost 20 years.
