The Remembrance Service at Padiham Town Hall
On Wednesday 11th November, Years 2, 3 and 5 walked to Padiham Town Hall to show their respect for the brave men and women who have been injured or died during all conflicts.
Here are some photographs we took. Year 2 made a letter 'A' which became part of the message of 'PEACE'. Year 5 performed and recited a poem relating to the letter 'A' and the anguish felt by the mothers left at home.
THEME WEEK SPRING TERM
In February we celebrated The Year of Mercy with a theme week in school. During the week each class took part in a range of fun activities related to the Pope's vision and his hopes for the future.
We had a visit from a member of the Jewish community who shared with us some of the differences and similarities between our faiths.
FUN RUN AT TOWNLEY
On Wednesday the 23rd of March, 20 children from Year Five took part in an organised fun run at Townley Park. It was a fabulous community event and attended by over 500 children from schools in the local area. Well done Year 5!
This week, Year 5 pupils got on their bikes for a two day 'Bikeability' course intended to help the children learn about how to ensure their bikes are well maintained an roadworthy and how to ride safely out on the road. The instructors were fantastic and the two day course was a tremendous success.
ITS FUN FRIDAY TIME AGAIN...
Who can build the tallest tower that must stay upright for I minute without falling. Sounds easy...not that easy when you only have a few sheets of paper and roll of sticky tape. It was such FUN!
YEAR 5 TRIP TO THE BUTTERLY HOUSE AT WILLIAMSON PARK IN LANCASTER
There was so much to do and so much to see in Williamson Park.
The Butterfly House was amazing! Not only did it provide us with the perfect opportunity to see first hand examples of each stage of the life cycle of a butterfly, we also saw lots of other interesting animals, including stick insects and turtles.
Later in the education centre, we learnt more about other minibeasts and reptiles and were able to hold an American Giant Cockroach and a Bearded Dragon.
After a late lunch, there was just enough time for a short woodland walk and a play on the adventure park before we headed back to the coach.
It was an absolutely brilliant day and as you can see we all needed a rest on the way home.
