The Netball team had a great win last week against Holy Trinity with an amazing 8-0 victory. Holly Turner and Abby Hart were fabulous in their roles as shooters. Player of the match was Grace Montague.
This week on a wet Tuesday night the girls’ football team went to St Bede’s to compete in a Girl’s Football Tournament. They played 3 games, winning 2 and losing 1. They lost against Longshaw 3-0 but kept going and won against Lower Darwen 1-0 and Our Lady of Perpetual Succour 1-0. Player of the match was Paige Baker. Thanks to Mr Clegg for organising and Mrs Watson for her taxi services.
A boys’ football tournament was held on Wednesday night at the BRIC (Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre) though as the title indicates this was inside, unlike the girls! A clean sheet was kept with three victories against St Alban’s 2-0; St Gabriel’s 6-2 and St Anne’s 5-3. Player of the match was Bradley Heys. Again thanks go to Mr Clegg for organising.
Class photographs are scheduled for next week Tuesday 7th March. The photographer will be in school during the morning to take class photos of children who are present on the day.
We are trying really hard to get you more involved in knowing what we are doing here at school and keeping you more informed about expectations by holding a series of parental workshops: Maths, Grammar and spelling, headlice, KS2 SATs, Early Years and Year 1 phonics. A huge thank you to the parents who attended and feedback was really positive. For some workshops however we had 2 parents from the whole school. Workshops are partly being held due to parental request, via the parental questionnaires. Please work with us to provide the best education we can for your children, we have to work as a team. You as parents are the biggest influence on your children’s lives, you are the people they want to please more than anyone. Talk to them about their day at school and then extend their learning at home.
KS1 SATs WORKSHOP
- This is being held on Tuesday 14th March at 3.15 - 4.15pm. Letters with more information are being sent home.
World book day
Huge, huge thanks for supporting World Book Day! The children’s (and staff) costumes were amazing. Lots of fun activities took place during the day, Y4 visited Darwen Vale; teachers swapped classes to read books, children acted out their favourite books, recipes were made, the bell randomly rang, signalling that whatever you were doing had to be put down so a story could be read and lots more fun things. The book sale last night was a great success and don’t forget that it is still on in the gym tonight with some bargains to be had. Big thanks go to Mrs Nuttall for organising the day and Miss Harrison for sorting out the book fair.
