Sports News

Well done to the Year 4 Cricket Team who fielded and batted really well at the Indoor Cricket Competition last Friday at Fearns. They all took part with great enthusiasm and displayed determination and great team spirit! Thank you to the parents who came to support their children.

This week in school, Year 4 and Year 6 have enjoyed the first of their handball coaching sessions with Rossendale Leisure Trust. They have learnt how to use different passes during the game and also how to aim with accuracy.

Year 6 will enjoy their 3rd table tennis coaching next Wednesday afternoon. Year 5 will be taking part soon!

Our Sports Ambassadors, Kian and Izzy, took part in Change4Life Training at Fearns last week alongside Mrs Dawson. We are always looking at ways in which we can really make a difference in promoting healthy, active lifestyles. The ideas which were given at the training will soon be introduced at our lunchtime sports activities.

Your Views Matter

We would like to set up an informal parent group to look at the values and aims of the school. It is really important to get parental points of view and this is an opportunity to have your say about a variety of issues across the school. Don’t be put off by thinking you can’t contribute; this will be a friendly and informal group which will work on really valuable areas of school improvement. And this is your chance to get involved. If you are interested in finding out more please contact Mrs Longstaff through the school office.

Welcome back to school and the Spring term 2016

Welcome back to Britannia! The teachers and staff have really enjoyed hearing about all the fantastic experiences that the children have had over Christmas. It has been great to see everyone refreshed and ready to start an exciting new term.

We have lots to do this term; children will be busy and we appreciate all the support you give your children at home.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Spring term, please contact the class teacher or Mrs Longstaff.
