Mrs Johnson and Mrs Latham had a fabulous time with the year 5 Eco counsellors at the Eco Conference in Accrington. The theme is always......Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!!! They also got chance to meet some very interesting animals...
Year 3 trip to Williamson Park
On Tuesday we enjoyed a fabulous trip to Williamson Park. We spent the morning being explorers in the park; we went on a nature trail, hunted for witches and enjoyed looking at the different stages and sets that are being used for the play that is on there at the moment!
After lunch in the Ashton Memorial we visited the Reptile House and the Butterfly House. We got to meet a Milk snake called Strawberry and a Millipede called Millie! We learnt lots of different facts about the animals and really enjoyed holding and stroking them. We were amazed by the beautiful butterflies. They were all sorts of different sizes and colours. In the Butterfly House we got to hold the new stick insect!
After this it was time to come home. A fantastic time was had by all! It was a great way to celebrate the end of Year 3.
Year 2 RE Day
RE Day was so much fun. We listened to lots of stories about Jesus and did lots of fun activities about these stories. We made a sheep, we made a friendship bracelet, we made a picture of Jesus the healer and we did some drama in the hall for the Jesus in the storm story.
Take a look at the year 2 children working very hard trying to master 'The Shuffle'.
Brian House School Challenge Award
Clare and four Year 5 children were invited to an awards ceremony at Brian House where we were presented with a Bronze Award for our fundraising achievements during 'Reindeer Week 2014'.
A staggering £730.80 was raised!
Take a look at the photographs, you may spot a famous face.
An ambulance came to visit Reception Class
A big THANK YOU to Mrs Hill and her colleague Kirsty for bringing an ambulance to school for us to look at.

The children have completed the stage 1 Pedestrian Training Scheme. They have learnt how to cross the road safely with an adult. Thank you Mr Hill and Nanny Hill for helping us with this!
Lancashire School Games
Well done to the girls football team who came second in the Lancashire School Games Final. This is an amazing achievement as over 600 schools participate in this event
They played 7 games and lost 2. The final was lost on penalties after a 1-1 draw at the end of extra time.
Clare, Miss Mansell and eight very excited children had a fabulous time at Wimbledon. The sun shone on what was a fun filled day. They sat on Henman Hill (Murray Mound), watched the start of the Murray match, had a look around Centre Court and Number 1 Court before heading off to Number 2 Court to watch live tennis in the baking heat. While in Wimbledon, how could they not sample the famous strawberries and cream.
Take a look at the photographs on what was "A day to remember".
Year 4 Tennis
Well done to our fabulous tennis team from Year 4 who came second in the 2015 competition. This is a fantastic result as some of the children had never, until this year, even held a tennis racquet.
Year 6 Hockey
Well done to the Year 6 Hockey Team who came 4th in the annual Rossall Tournament. The standard was high and the children performed well and their behaviour was, as usual, a credit to both their parents, carers and the school. Well done to all involved, you deserved your hotdog and chips!
Bobby became the 2015 Champion by defeating Elizabeth in the final. Bobby was awarded a signed Ronnie O'Sullivan snooker ball for winning the title, together with a signed Jimmy White snooker ball for scoring the highest break of 22. Well done Bobby!
Elizabeth also won a signed snooker ball along with Joseph and Cameron who came joint 3rd.
Take a look at what's happening in Year 4
Children in 4H (Lucas Burton, Charlie Nuttall and Kelbie Groves) using Shakespeare's new bridge building kit to make a suspension bridge.
Year 4 children also enjoyed a trip to Emmanuel Christian Church where they learned about the life of John Wesley, who founded the Methodist Church.
Science in Year 2
Planting! Planting! Planting!- Our potatoes are growing VERY well! We are loving watching our sunflowers grow and filling in our diaries.
We had a look at our own greenhouses! The bean and seed didn’t seem to grow to well and stay healthy! We all worked out why- they didn’t have enough air and water but plenty of sunlight. We realised that plants need all these three things to stay healthy.
In the quad our potatoes are growing very well and so are the plants in our greenhouse!
Humans- Also in science we have been learning all about what humans need to survive and stay healthy. We talked about a balanced diet, exercise having sleep and rest and what happens if we are poorly. We talked about germs and how they spread. Oliver pretended to have germs on his hands by using flour- it spread around the classroom and his friends very easily.
Year 2 really enjoyed the ambulance visit. We learned all about what paramedics do and what ambulances are for. We then got to go and explore inside the ambulance. Some of us got to see how fast our hearts were beating. We pretended to drive and turned on the flashing lights. We also got to try on the outfit, it was funny.
Primary Science Challenge
Four very talented young scientists from Year 5 competed against six other schools in the annual Science Challenge. We came a very impressive 2nd place.
Well done Jake, Vivian, Oliver and Holly.

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.
