Usually at this time of year we enter the Southport Flower Show -  'design a school garden competition', unfortunately due social distancing measures this event will not take place this year. However, with so many of us enjoying our gardens at home, Class 3 have taken up the challenge to design their own 'Lockdown Garden' which would bring pleasure to all age groups.

Today Class 3 took part in the Heartstart Programme led by our South Ribble Sports Coach. The children learnt: • How to open an airway • How to put a person in the recovery position • DRS ABC (danger, response, shout, airway, breathing and CPR) • How to treat a person with a bleed • How to help someone who is choking • How to administer CPR They thoroughly enjoyed learning these important life skills.

As part of our work, Class 3 held a whole school debate on the question: Is it necessary to give Primary School children homework? Reasons for the Proposition included: • Homework stops children from spending too long watching a blue screen. • Homework allows children to retain what they have learnt in school. • Homework can develop imaginations and creative skills. Reasons for Opposition included: • Children spend enough hours (30+ per week) at school. • Children’s well-being is affected by the pressure of homework. • Homework impacts on family time. Once all the points had been debated the voting was very close. It was 30 – 29 in favour of homework.

In Forest School this week Class 3 learnt about mixing solutions, freezing and melting. They are going to see what happens to a cup full of pretty woodland things covered in water when it is frozen.

Today Class 3 were joined by PCSO Maria Featherstone who taught us the importance of being safe on the internet. We learnt: • That we must never give out personal information online • To block or delete cyber bullies who are sending mean messages or images • To be a cyber-defender by taking a screen shot of the evidence and reporting the bullies • To ensure our parents have the set the correct privacy settings on our electronic devices • Useful information can be found at

Celebrating European Day of Languages Today Class 3 enjoyed a visit from Madam Ward (Head of Modern Foreign Languages at Leyland St Mary’s High School, Leyland). The focus was to look at the importance of learning a foreign language and how it develops our British Values of tolerance, respect and understanding. The children really enjoyed speaking, reading and writing French and making a model of the Eiffel Tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows. Thank you Madam Ward what a great start to a Tuesday.
