Autumn 2023

Thank you to the PTFA, all our staff and the children for a fantastic Winter Disco!

3/4SG have enjoyed exploring the dip dying technique and have begun creating some excellent artwork.

As part of 3/4’s DT topic this half term, please will all parents bring in any used and cleaned food packages they may have? Ideally, different sized boxes such as pizza boxes, cereal boxes, jars with the labels still on and empty juice containers. Please can all packages be washed/rinsed before being brought into school.  

Year 1 have been learning about ways to record the weather in Fleetwood. They have been using weather instruments to record the different aspects of the weather including, temperature, rain fall, wind direction and cloud cover. They have then used this information to write their own weather diaries and act out giving a weather forecast for the UK weather.

Here are some of our finished working hands that we started last week in Science Club.

We were also challenged to walk through a page.  Check out the instruction page and have a go at home!

Thank you to everyone who attended our workshop yesterday.

Thank you to everyone who attended out parent workshop today.

The children in 3Y have been looking at forces in science and completed an experiment looking at the best type of surfaces for roads using force meters. 

In 3Y we have been doing some amazing printing as part of our art topic.

Thank you to Fiona for delivering a fantastic outdoor learning session for staff. We all had a great time and have lots of new ideas for our lessons.

Thank you to everyone who could join us for our PSHE/Wellbeing workshop for Y5 and Y6 today. Tomorrow will be our workshop for Y3 and Y4 and Wednesday for Rec, Y1 and Y2. Both start at 2:15pm

This disco is just for the children only. If parents can bring the children to the office at the beginning and then collect them from the hall doors in the car park at the end. All children MUST go home with an adult.KS1 is Reception, Year 1 and Year 2KS2 is Years 3, 4, 5 and 6(We will let you know the prices of the drinks and snacks nearer the time).

Well done to our maths team who took part in the Fleetwood High Primary Maths Challenge yesterday evening.

We were faced with a challenge today in science as part of our topic on the properties of materials.  We were given a tray of different materials including sand, split pins, rice, grit and marbles.  We had to use our knowledge of materials to separate the materials using the equipment that was given to us.  We were not allowed to use our hands!

Fabulous work in reception using the story The Stickman.

Our challenge today in science club was to make a ‘robo-hand’ using cardboard, elastic bands and string.  When they are finished we should be able to move the hand by pulling a string.  Creepy!

Why not have a go at home and make your own moving hand – lots of patience is needed but the results are amazing!

Thank you to Scott and Alex who came in today to talk to us about Stanger Danger and staying safe when out and about.

We currently have a vacancy for a parent Governor at Larkholme Primary School. Nomination papers and information has been sent home tonight. If you don’t receive your letter or you require an additional copy please contact the office. Governors play an important part in our school. Please consider becoming a Governor and supporting our school.


If you have any dressing up clothes, scooters or doll prams that your children no longer use, we are looking to add them to our resources for the children to use over lunchtime. Please can they be dropped off at the office. Thank you

Today in geography, 5/6I have been understanding that our food comes from various and diverse places around the world. We have explored ‘Fair Trade’ food and whether food is natural or processed. We then wrote arguments for and against ‘home-grown’ and ‘imported’ food. It was a very interesting lesson.
