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.

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!
