For 6 weeks they equipment and cooking practised and practised very hard for the show they performed on Thursday. The utensils. audience really liked the dance the children did for them. By Zoe King and Melissa Heyes. Lets see if we can beat last years total! Please can you send any vouchers into school. Tesco have now stopped issuing vouchers in their stores. The deadline for sending vouchers into school is Friday 11th June 2010. Unfortunately we are only able to accept vouchers issued in this year's scheme, which are green. We have just over 29 thousand vouchers up to now so we still have a way to go to match last year. Tesco have said that last year only 60% of vouchers issued, were actually redeemed by schools across the country. ! Norwood Crescent, Southport. PR9 7DU. Tel: 01704211960. Fax 01704 232712.

  4. 4. Year 5‘s Henry VIII surprise While year 5 were in the woods and meant to be doing art, a surprisingly unfamiliar voice called out ‘Where is my horse?’ Mr.Postlethwaite panicked. Mrs Goulden was extremely shocked. All the children looked around to find a weird man wearing strange clothes, who proclaimed that he was Henry Vlll! Bravely Mrs. Goulden stepped forward and asked his Majesty if he would answer some questions which the children made up themselves. After break, Mrs Goulden exclaimed that the children were going to sketch other children in their sketch books, King Henry kindly offered for the children to sketch him. One of the things King Henry Vlll told us was that he enjoyed hunting and playing the lyre and the lute. The children tried very hard to get every speck and detail of Henry down onto their paper inside their sketch books. The children were happy with the end result. Family Orienteering Day After the terrific successes of the previous Family Learning Days focussing on Art and Literacy and on Cooking, our first outdoor venture introduced parents and children to orienteering. Steve McLean from British Orienteering UK last year worked with some of our Y6 children as part of our links with Stanley High School Sports College Partnership. They enjoyed it so much that we knew our parents and children would relish the opportunity of exploring the playground, the field and the woods as a whole day of map work, only to be halted with a delicious lunch from Josie and Sue in the kitchen. The response was tremendous with 32 families taking part and so the atmosphere was superb as some families grew more and more competitive as the day moved on and the skill level increased. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part, all the staff for putting in extra time in setting up everything after school and on the day itself and Kim Taylor, the school’s Parent Support Adviser for organising everything including the weather! We were sorry we had to disappoint people but will give them first refusal when we run it again next summer. ! Norwood Crescent, Southport. PR9 7DU. Tel: 01704211960. Fax 01704 232712.
