A huge WELL DONE! to all the children in the KS2 school choir who took part in our achievement assembly on Monday 16th October. As it was our first official performance as a newly reformed choir we wanted to share with parents and carers how fantastic the children performed in our version of “Don’t Stop Believing”. There will be lots of opportunities for the choir to perform in assemblies to build our confidence and we will let parents know in advance when we will be performing at local events where parents and carers will be invited to come and support the children. Again, a big well done to all the children who took part, you should be very proud of yourselves as we certainly are! and we look forward to our next exciting performance!
Borwick Hall Thursday 2017|
Hello everyone (again!)
So our final full day finished on the crest of a wave (on the canal at Borwick Hall)!! Last night we went to bed, wondering if we might wake up floating down the canal in the major flood but unbelievably the sun shone today and Borwick Hall was saved. After breakfast, we dashed to our various activities and either kayaked, climbed or attacked the low ropes at various stages during the day. Three and four letter words were spelt as the children scaled the walls and massive tennis balls were pushed up jumpers in order to complete a climbing warm-up ceremony. Tennis balls were hidden and the children scampered through tunnels, scavenging for their rewards. The low ropes saw the children dangling from carabiners, swinging like monkeys; some became tangled and plopped into the water but everyone had a smile on their face. Kayaking proved to be highly competitive; some of the children should now be standing for parliament as the debates were loud and strong. Borwick was nearly consumed in a tsunami as we jumped in the kayaks, creating Mexican waves as ducks swam for cover. Sliding down upside down kayaks was a great favourite as was the mini pentathlon across the canal. The children were not very good at saving certain teachers
This evening Broadway met Borwick as every act from the Goonies to the Bagels (Dunking Doughnuts) performed their premiere acts. The children loved showing off their shimmies and high kicks; fun was had by all. They are now snuggled up under their duvets, dreaming of fame and fortune on the big stage.
So the final countdown has begun......another story time, more hot chocolate emblazoned with marshmallows, and the promise of home......the children have been fantastic....room inspections have proven to be very popular...most bedrooms have gone from zero to hero.......however, BEWARE THERE IS SOME VERY WET, DIRTY, SMELLY WASHING COMING YOUR WAY!!!!
We are all looking forward to seeing you at the school gates!!!!
Love Mrs Watts, Miss Santamera, Miss Furber
Borwick Hall Wednesday 2017|
Well.....today we needed an ark as it's been hosing it down constantly....rivers have burst their banks, roads have flooded but we have survived... sloshing and sploshing in our boots all day! Our adventure day took us to Lake Coniston slate mines where we slipped and slid down a gorge and were met by plummeting waterfalls. Then we climbed back up again, sploshing and splashing until we entered a cave system where we were met by a lovely warm fire, hot Vimto and a picnic lunch. Then we were off again to the cave where "Snow White and the Huntsman" was filmed. In the pitch black, we manoeuvred our way through the cave system which was tricky for some....We have played pooh sticks, skimmed stones and eaten lots of chips! We were really proud of ourselves (and the teachers) as we battled the elements which bashed them from all directions. We settled down early tonight and went to bed shattered after a stint of ping pong, pom poms, Yamsi and card games washed down with hot chocolate and another bed time story.

Borwick Hall Tuesday 2017|
Well here we are again.....after a very exciting day! On Tuesday, we scaled trees, wobbled on the high platform and jumped high from the leap of faith. Some of us danced as we sprang, some of us recited Shakespeare whilst others recited their times tables! Miss Furber and Miss Santamera showed great flexibility and core strength as they dangled in the air, later plunging to the ground. Caving challenged us before we even began.....as somebody lost their wellie in a peat bog as we ventured across the Yorkshire terrain. However, after a massive heave ho we regained the missing boot and continued the adventure. We came out with flying colours, squeezing through tight spaces, sliding down the muddy chutes and splashing through the swirling water. We now know about tectonic plates, stalactites and stalagmites. We're off to the Lake District today for an adventure day. Knitting is still going well and hopefully we will be returning with some bespoke pom pom sheep! We are all learning some new games. Story time at night has been a big hit with hot chocolate. The food is still good.....no complaints and everyone is eating well!!!
Love Year 6
Borwick Hall Monday 2017|
Just to say there were no tears at bed time and everyone has had a good night's sleep. When we arrived, we made our beds; then we played some team games in the rain and some of us got very wet and muddy which was great fun!
Afterwards a good meal of nuggets, chips, pizza, chocolate cake and ice-cream warmed us up. We're playing monopoly, colouring, playing table tennis, learning to knit and performing dances in our spare time.
Today we're off caving and leaping like Tarzan through the trees. Everyone is having toast for breakfast with happy smiles on faces.
Love to you all,
100% Attendance Treat|
The children who attended school for the whole year 100% of the time were awarded with a treat this morning of playtime on the bouncy castle, the new trim trail and ice creams provided by Morris Murray Ice Creams. They all had a wonderful time!

Borwick Hall Year 6 May 2017|
Our year 6 team had a fabulous time recently on their 3 day Borwick Hall Residential. The teachers and staff at Borwick Hall commented on the excellent behaviour all round. Well done! Some of the fun they had are shown on the selection of pictures below.
Today was the grand opening of Larkholme's Garden. The garden was designed by Helen Christie and was funded by the Big Lottery fund. With eleven planters, the garden provides each class with a space to grow flowers, herbs, fruits or vegetables.
Our garden will give our children so many opportunities to learn outside. We are looking forward to watching our garden grow for years to come.
Larkholme primary school would like to thank the Mayor of Wyre for opening our garden. Thank you also to all our parents and Governors for supporting the event.
Hewett Treat Day March 2017|
World Book Day 2017|
Our children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters for World Book Day
Children from Larkholme Primary School are participating in the Last Choir Singing Competition 2017. Our children will be singing an original piece of music written by J Slowen called Open Your Eyes.
To help our children practice we have included a song sheet and both the original song and an instrumental version of the piece to sing along with. The first regional heat will be held between the 6th - 31st March 2017. The winners if the heats will go through to the Grand Final of Last Choir Singing on Friday 16th June 2017.
This is an exciting opportunity for our children to learn new performance techniques, develop their musical skills and experience the fun of singing to a large audience. The process will help encourage team work and build confidence.
Many thanks to Hambleton Choir who came to sing some lovely Christmas Songs to our children in a special assembly. Our Larkholme Choir also had the opportunity to sing along with a couple of songs with the Hambleton Choir. Well done to all!
Children in Need 2016|
Our children had lots of fun on Pudsey day and raised a fantastic £230 for Children in Need. We were also extremely lucky to have free ice creams for everyone courtesy of Maurice Murray and his ice cream van. A few years ago Maurice started an event called the Great Ice Cream Giveaway during the Children in Need week. He is seeking sponsorship through customers, family and freiends with all the money going directly to the Children in Need appeal via his Just Giving account. We would like to say a huge thanks to Maurice as all the children thoroughly enjoyed their treat!

Sports Day 2016|
Well done to everyone who took part in our Sports Day. Boston were our house winners this year. The weather was lovely and we had a fantastic turnout from parents, guardians, granparents and friends. Our children really enjoyed seeing their family and friends at the event and your support is very much appreciated.
Save the Children Den Day|
The children had a very exciting day making dens to support the excellent work of Save the Children.
The charity provides support when disasters like earthquakes strike, and when children are caught up in conflict in countries like Syria, or forced to leave behind everything they have in search of a life where they’re not afraid. They give them vital things like food and water, healthcare, protection and education. They make sure they have a safe place to shelter at night. Hence the den building day!
The children worked with partners and in small groups to problem solve, using their initiative to create hideaways. Opportunities to build dens of all shapes and sizes are vital for our children as they offer so many possibilities for learning; negotiation, creative thinking, sustained and shared thinking, planning, evaluating, constructing, connecting, investigating and just plain old joyful expression.
Thank you to our parents and friends who have support our Den Day by providing the children with equipment and giving a donation to support the work of Save the Children.
100% Attendance Treat Day|
Our children had lots of fun playing a variety of games in our new MUGA on Wednesday afternoon. This was a special treat for them as a reward for achieving 100% attendance last term.
RSC at Larkholme Primary School|
The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC)’s Learning Performance Network (LPN) provides opportunities for clusters of schools to work with the Education staff from the RSC. We are the hub school in Wyre and are now in our second year of our partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford and The Grand Theatre in Blackpool.
We are teaching the children both in and out of the classroom to engage with, and take ownership of the work of Shakespeare. Currently, we are working on the play, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
During the Easter holidays, thirty children from Key Stage 2 will be performing on the Blackpool Grand stage; whilst in the summer term we will be celebrating with an RSC festival at Larkholme which will provide the children with an opportunity to show case their work.
