Since September, we have been studying and learning all about World War 2. The children have looked at the events that led to the outbreak of war, all the way through to how the war ended and how this was celebrated. Children have participated in a theme day all about children within the war. The children also hosted their very own VE Day party. Alongside our work on World War 2, children also spent time learning all about Judaism. To consolidate our learning on this topic, we visited a local synagogue. In the coming weeks, we will also be visiting Blackburn Museum to participate in their World War 2 workshop.

December was a busy month, we had many festive activities taking place. The first of these was our school Christmas dinner. It was delicious and the children supported our visitors from Bispham Gardens. We also visited Bispham Gardens to take part in Christmas crafts and also sing Carols to the residents. The highlight of December for the whole school was the Nativity. Year 6 were the narrators and we really helped to tell the story of the first Christmas.


November saw the children from Year 6 visit the Memorial Gardens at Moor Park to remember all those who have given so much for their country. To mark our respect the children created their own version of a Poppy Wreath. It was also Anti-Bullying week and the children from a variety of classes came together to create our Kincraig Jigsaw which is the key to keeping us all together.


During October we took part in ‘Super Athlete Fun Day’ helping raise money for our school. We also continued our Sport 4 Champions programme and took part in ‘sit-down fencing.’ The highlight of our month was the visit to Hangar 42 at Blackpool Airport where the children all got to see a Spitfire and a Hurricane as well as dress up in World War 2 military clothing. At the end of the month we had our Halloween Disco and the children all were fully committed to their costumes.


Most of the children from Year 6 visited PGL at Boreatton Park in Shropshire for the first week of term. They had such an amazing week learning new and exciting activities. For those who did not go on our residential they also had a fun week teambuilding and using our new Trim Trail for physical exertion. September also saw the start of our Sport 4 Champions programme and Year 6 led the Harvest Assembly.
