Firework safety poster competition, by Mrs Catterall

Date: 11th Oct 2019 @ 3:04pm

Sorry this is late notice, time has flown quickly and posters need to be in well before bonfire night to be judged and prizes awarded before the day.

Children from any class can enter.  Just create a poster showing how to be safe on bonfire night and bring it to school on Monday to be sent off to Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service. 

Last year we had an overall winner in school, it would be great if someone from Longton could win a prize.

Lucy's Blue Day, by Mrs Hothersall

This half term we have been thinking about our emotions of happy and sad. Today we read a lovely story called Lucy's Blue Day. We found out that whilst it's great to be happy it is ok to be sad, and eventually your sadness goes and you become happy again.

Macmillan coffee morning and book read, by Mrs Catterall

Date: 1st Oct 2019 @ 5:39pm

What an amazing morning. We were completely blown away by the number of visitors this morning. Thank you to everyone who came along to support this event, there was plenty of cake for everyone. The children enjoyed reading with their parents/grandparents, reading with the younger children or sat on a bean bag, taking off their shoes and sharing a book with their friends. Thankyou also to the parents who helped our amazing charity ambassadors and heads team. 

We had lots of amazing cakes for our moon/space themed competition. There are some very talented bakers out there.  The charity ambassadors had some difficult decisions to make when choosing the winner from each class.  The winners were informed in assembly today and prizes given out. All children who took part will receive a special certificate later this week. 

We will let you know the total amount once it has been totalled up.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow. 

PE circuit, by Mrs Hothersall

Date: 17th Sep 2019 @ 9:42pm

In PE we are learning to move carefully around the hall, moving forwards, backwards and sideways. We listen carefully to different instructions and then we had a go at a circuit where we were throwing, catching, balancing and stepping up and down....we thought about what our heart was doing inside of our body whilst we were exercising.
