Rio Ferdinand Meets Our Girls’ Football Team11-12-2018 | 17:16:21 | No Comments

This morning, our girls’ football team and Mr Ball were invited to Stanley Park for the official opening of the new 3G astroturf pitches. The girls were chosen, along with St John’s Primary School and Park Academy, to receive some coaching and play some games against each other. The highlight of the day was getting the chance to meet former Manchester United and England legend Rio Ferdinand. 

His visit was brief but he managed to squeeze in time to have a picture with all of the schools and speak to the local press. Many thanks to Rio and Blackpool Sport for the invitation.

Our Letters Home30-11-2018 | 10:51:17 | 2 Comments

This week, Year 6 have been writing letters (as Michael from Kensuke’s Kingdom) back home to send help to get him off the island.

We have focused on subordinate clauses this week, which are parts of sentences which may use a subordinating conjunction at the beginning. For example, if, when, because.

We used the acronym: I SAW A WABUB to help us remembers some subordinating conjunctions in our work.

https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-is-a-clause – more information is available at this site for work on clauses and you can also use your revision guides at home.

Can you hear any examples of subordinate clauses, which are read aloud by our excellent pupils? The password is ‘6a’

This afternoon we had 3 special visitors to Reception . Natasha came with her training dog, Rex, and our school dog, Arnold. Natasha is a dog trainer. She told us how to stroke dogs. We must stroke with a flat hand from head to tail. We don’t pat dogs as this could hurt them. We bend down to talk to dogs and always approach from the front.

We practised on Rex the toy dog and then got to stroke Arnold.

Arnold was really well behaved and enjoyed his time with Reception.

Natasha is going to come back to talk to us about how we tell if a dog is happy or sad.
