Every year I go with the Year 6 children on their residential. It is a time when they face challenges and show the whole range of school values we work hard to develop in them as they journey through Hall Park. We see resilience, courage, tolerance, kindness, hope and of course – respect. This year was no exception – they were a joyous group to be with.
We could not visit Towerwood without a group of committed and enthusiastic adults and – along with me – Miss Brierley, Mrs Curl, Mrs Peet, Miss Singleton and Mr Taylor came to Towerwood and threw themselves into all the activities making it a super special time. Thank you to the Hall Park team – another exciting step in the Year 6 journey.
Here our just a few photographs to give you a taste of Towerwood – there are LOTS more on the Year 6 blog.
Well done Hall Park on another fabulous performance. I was so impressed with your beautiful singing, your confident acting and your all round excellence. Not a dry eye in the house.
One more step Year 6 – you continue to make us all feel proud.
Well done to our committed Year 6 children for helping our younger children at play times. Miss Tomlinson is very impressed and our infants really enjoy you skipping with them!
Our talented year 6 artists have sent a beautiful birthday card to the Queen. We do hope she likes it.

A fantastic opportunity was given to our children in Year 5 & 6 today taking part in a debating workshop session organised by the Lower Sixth students of AKS. By the end of the session our children had taken part in a formal debate on a range of interesting topics.

Inspiring writing… In assembly Dan shared his story Blown Away, but we were left on a cliff hanger. It is now over to Year 6 to create an alternative ending. Next week, in our assembly, we will share the results and keep an eye on the Year 6 blog for our ideas.
Today Year 6 were visited by 3 magistrates who helpedÂ them to understand politics and the law. Year 6 were challenged to a Who Wants to be a Magistrate quiz, acting as magistrates to make decisions based on evidence.Â A fascinating afternoon!
Key Stage 2 children enjoyed listening to poetry and readings by the author A.F.Harrold. It was a very entertaining morning! We learnt about his latest book, The Imaginary, and met one of his characters, Fizzlebert Stump. We are now looking forward to reading some of his stories for ourselves.
Huge congratulations goes to one of Year 6 artists for her winning entry into the road safety competition. Over the holidays she was presented with her prize, a wonderful eye-catching design.
This afternoon I was interviewed by two of our Year 6 children. They were gathering information to include in the Lytham Hall Park leaflets we hand out at the Open Sessions later in the term. We do have an official leaflet to share with parents who are looking at schools for next year’s reception class but the leaflets the children produce are always so informative and share not our view, but the children’s view of their school. I think parents much prefer the children’s versions and I just love reading them. It is always interesting to see what the children include as the important facts and information about our school.
Thank you girls, your interview skills were excellent. I will share some quotes from your leaflets very soon in my blog.
