Oak Class Librarian Training


On Wednesday Mrs Monk, from the School Library Service, came to train our new Oak Class librarians.  The group will use their newly acquired skills to help the younger children in school to find books and research a topic.   Our librarians are also responsible for keeping our beautiful library organised and neat and for making book recommendations. 

Gift books


Every child in school was presented with a copy of 'Garstang's Great War Heroes' by local authors Paul G Smith and Anthony Coppin.

Radio 2's 500 Words Competition Winner Beth Grierson


Year 5 pupil Beth Grierson has been selected as one of our top 50 stories from our Radio 2 500 Words Competition.  Beth's story, "The Astonishing Diary of a Depressed Sheep", has been selected from 120,421 entries and made it to the final 50.  Beth will now travel to London to the Palace at the end of May where the final winner will be announced.

We are incredibly proud of Beth's achievement and wish her well at the final!  If you would like to listen to Beth's story it has been narrated by the Radio Drama Company and can be read or listened to on now.



Young Voices


On Wednesday 4th March we had the pleasure of joining one of the largest school choirs in the world at the Young Voices concert at the Manchester Phone 4 U arena.  We all had an amazing time and enjoyed performing in front of a huge audience. All the staff were extremely proud of the children. Here are some photographs from the night. We even had time for a few selfies! 

Reindeer Run


Children boogied to Christmas tunes to raise money for Brian House Hospice. They enjoyed their flashing noses and jingling antlers - and raised over £500!!
