Our school serves the villages of Crakehall, Langthorne, Newton – Le – illows, Patrick Brompton and further afield both up and down the dale. Children from Newton-Le-Willows and Patrick Brompton have access to a free school bus. We have 81 children on our roll, taught in 4 classes. This affords us an excellent adult to child ratio.
Our staff and governors are committed to ensuring that all children in our care achieve well in all aspects of their development and that they enjoy a rich and varied curriculum that will leave them with happy and lasting memories of their time with us.

In class 3 we have been sewing and making wrapping wool pictures. We have designed a cross stitch pattern using our initials and then sew it onto special cross stitch material. For the wool pictures we could choose any design and try to make it using wool.

Yesterday we weren’t allowed to the bottom of the bog only at the top near the grass. The river had flooded the bog so we thought it was a risk. I went on the rope swing which was awesome. I made my very own ‘Boggart’ out of clay and sticks. I checked my firework picture from last week it was still all there! Mark helped me learn about safely using the secateurs and loppers and I tried really hard on my knots, the reef knot was tricky.
We had pancakes for snack and hot chocolate to drink.
I still came back muddy!!
I had fun splashing in the bog and climbing high in the big climbing tree. The beck was too high and fast to go in but the bog was boggy. I loved doing a bomb in the bog.
I climbed the tree and MN was teaching me how to be in ‘TREE RESCUE’. This is a group of people that help you if you get stuck in a tree. It takes along time to pass so I will have to practice every week. My fire work picture was still in the bank. I used mud to stick down the leaves. My Boggart is called Angry Man and he has a very long nose.

The whole school enjoyed 2 afternoons of science. Each class had different science activities in and the children rotated around the classrooms. In the hall lots of different science equipment was put out for the children to experiment with such as magnets, friction ramps, torches and tuning forks. The children looked lots of varied activities in the classroom … the human body and their organs as well as a grouse and a pigs heart, raising agents in bread , leaf sorting, reversible and irreversible changes and soluble and insoluble substances as well as static electricity.
