Christmas 2014 displays
Overnight the wonderful work of our children have been doing for Christmas was 'magically' put up by staff and many helping elves and pixies!
The Year 3/4 corridor has been transformed into 'Frozen' while you step into Narnia through the wardrobe in the Year 5/6 corridor. Look at the Year 5/6 class pages for more photos of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe display and the Year 3/4 pages for a Frozen masterpiece.
There were many surprised faces the following morning!
Our Autumn Art Gallery
We welcomed our parents and friends into school on Thursday afternoon to share with them our Autumn artwork that we completed before half term at our open morning. Many thanks to the people who came, we hope you liked our super work.
Open Morning and Harvest|
Thank you to all our visitors who came to our Autumn themed open morning. It was lovely to see both familiar and new faces in school. All the children were busy at work with some children outside in the allotment with Mr. Roscoe, Mrs. Pinder and Mrs. Norcross. They harvested the last of the vegetables which were shown in our Harvest Assembly review of our first year in the allotment.
We hope you enjoy our new hall displays, themed on Our School grounds.

Y6 WW1 visit to Belgium and France|
I am very happy to report that the Year 6 visit to Belgium which I undertook with Mrs Mosley was a real success. All our children and those of the other schools who accompanied us were a credit and excellent ambassadors for Lancashire. Wherever we went we received very positive feedback, in particular where we laid a wreath at the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres.
The visit lasted for 5 days and the main focus being the centenary of the start of The Great War 1914. We stayed in Ypres with visits to The Passchendaele Museum, The Last Post Ceremony and a visit to the Somme Battlefield where many Lancashire soldiers fought. The children also enjoyed a trip to the seaside at Nieuport and a trip to the beautiful Belgian town of Bruges.
The following pictures are of the Passchedaele Museum which tells of the numerous battles fought for this village in 1917. It shows life in the trenches through reconstructed dugouts, trenches and numerous artefacts from that period of the war.
As part of our studies we visited the Somme Battlefield this included the Sunken Lane where theLancashire Fusiliers went over the top on July 1st 1916 and Newfoundland Park an area of preserved battlefield at Beaumont Hamel. Here with permission of the Commonwelath War Graves Commission we took wax rubbings of some of the fallen soldiers. From here we went to the Thiepval Memorial to the missing which has over 70,000 names of the soldiers with no known grave. Some children from Lea CP School laid a wreath in memory of a fallen relative. Finally we went to La Boiselle to the Lochnagar Crater one of many mines detonated on July 1st 1916 the first day of the battle. We finished the day by holding an act of rememberance.
To conclude our visit, we visited the historic and beautiful city of Bruges 'the Venice of the North'. This stunning little city is built around a network of canals with cobbled streets and fine medieval buildings. Here the children enjoyed a canal trip and tasted the delights of waffles, Belgian chocolate, chips and mayonnaise.
