Multi-skills Sports Day 2019

The weather held out for another fantastic Multi-sports day at Park Road. The children really enjoyed working in their teams across a carousel of sporting activities. We're also excited to take part in Competitive races soon!

World Book Day 2019

As always, we were very impressed with the effort and enthusiasm shown by pupils with their costumes for World Book Day.

Many thanks to all parents for their support with this!

Education Without Boundaries

This year’s trip to LCCC Emirates Old Trafford had the added bonus of meeting Freddie Flintoff and, the current Lancashire player, Steven Croft.

We had a great time observing form the Media Centre, where the public don’t usually get to see, playing some indoor cricket and thinking about fair play and sportsmanship.


Everyone came away some mementos and memories, and I think some Year 5s may be trying to take up the sport, later in the year, when the weather is better.

Learning Together Morning

Thanks to all parents who joined us to learn about Islamic scholars, geometric patterns and creating music. The time flew by and some excellent questions were posed. Mr Wood hopes that parents gained a good insight of life in the Year 5 classroom.

Number Day 2019
We all enjoyed the Maths challenges posed by Miss Lee. You can see how much thought was being used in the photos taken!


For English, during Parliament Week, Year 5 held a debate as to whether ‘Zoos should be banned’. Ishaan chaired the debate admirably, with views being argued for and against the motion.

Indoor P.E.

Bad weather and lack of hall space doesn’t necessarily stop PE lessons. We all enjoyed playing some games practising catching, throwing and requiring quick reactions.


I hope that you have a calendar hanging in a prominent place in your house, which was inspired by Matisse. We were careful to create intricate seaweed type fronds to assemble in a collage. Some people were inspired by Matisse’s mask work. There are a few other examples of work here.


PE and sportsmanship

It is always pleasing to see the Year 5 children playing games in PE. They show a keen competitive spirit, but always know that they need to respect and thank their opponent for playing the game.
