Come and join us for some festive cheer at the KS1 Carol Concert. Nothing can get you more into the festive spirit than a good sing along. There will be the opportunity for you to join in as well as having a brew and a mince pie.
Children in KS2 are more than welcome to bring fruit into school to enjoy after break time. The free fruit that we provide in school is only for Key Stage 1 children.

This week the School Council visited the Blackburn with Darwen Foodbank with Miss Harrison and Mrs Mears. Our children were overwhelmed with the work the charity does and realised they do so much more than hand food out. It was really lovely for the children to see where all the food we collected for Harvest went.
Year 3 and 4 children went to Sunnyhurst Woods this week to sing Christmas carols under the bandstand watched by parents. Some of the school choir have also sung at the Sunnyhurst Community lunch.
Some of our Year 2’s pupils attended a Kurling competition at St Bede’s High School on Tuesday with Miss Lysons. The team consisted of: Maisie Crabtree, Solomon Naylor, Eve Huddart, Tristan Walsh and Kade Turner-Cathie
Results were mixed winning some games and losing others. This the first time we have entered this competition and all children represented the school very well.
Year 5/6 dancers
Our Dance Club has been really busy this week performing in the Christmas Dance Show at Darwen Vale High School. They have performed three times during the day and at two evening sessions. They have been practising after school throughout the last term enabling them to perform an outstanding festive number. Huge thanks to Mrs Morgan for giving up her time to organise this.
