Festive Sports Festival
Our F2 children participated in a wonderful fastive sports festival on Friday, which was lead by our Year 6 sports leaders. Organised by the Wirral School Games Officers, the children played active games themed around Christmas. What a lovely way to begin the festive season!
KS1 Playground
The Key Stage One children where finally able to enjoy playing on the climbing equipment this week. After Wirral Turf laid our lovely astroturf, the children began to enjoy climbing across the tyres and along the balance beams.
It is great to see the children playing actively during their break times.
Children in Need
There were hundreds of spots around school today to celebrate Children In Need Day. After our celebration asembly, the children went back to their classes and joined Joe Wicks in completing a special CIN workout. There were also special active challlenges at lunch time too. Again, we thank you for supporting this charity through your donations.
Shoe Box Appeal
Mrs Bardolia, from the school office, came in on her day off today to collect over 200 shoe boxes that you had kindly produced for disadvantaged children in Romania. Once again we must thank our school community for you generoisty and kindness. These gifts will bring joy to many children. Thanks must also go to the Rights Crew for helping to load the boxes into Mrs Bardolia's car so she could transport them to the charity depot.
Remembrance Day
Today we remembered those who fought for our country by completing a two-minute silence. All the children were respectful and understood the importance of this annual event.
Year 5 Birkenhead Priory Trip
Year 5 visited Birkenhead Priory as part of their history unit about the Tudor reformation of the churches. It was great to see such an historic site and see how Henry VIII's religious decisions affected the nation. 
Year 3 West Kirby Trip
Year 3 ventured out to West Kirby beach to learn all about coastal Wirral. They completed a beach look and walked across to Hilbre Island. They even managed to make a few sandcastles in their break time!
Safety Week
This week, afternoon lessons have focused on different elements of safety. We want all of our children to feel safe in every aspect of life and so the children had lessons about fire safety, 1st aid and e-safety. The lessons were etremely engaging and very informative. We hope all of our children understand the importance of safety after attending these sessions. 
BBC Workshop
Today, we welcomed Joe and Andy from the BBC show, Rhyme Rocket. They were very funny as they helped F2 to Year 4 develop their vocabulary through an interactive rhyming concert. After this, they taught years 5 and 6 what it is like working in different roles in the television industry. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed learning about the different jobs people have. Thanks Joe and Andy!
Prospective Parents
It was lovely to be able to show parents of potential F2 children around our school today. They were able to see for themselves the lovely grounds, facilities and displays we have on our site. The four Year 6 pupils, who presented to the parents, were also very informative about the brilliant things that take place at Poulton Lancelyn. If you are considering Poulton Lancelyn for your child but were not able to attend these sessions, please contact the school office to arrange a visit.
Forest School
Today, Mr Johnson led his first Forest School sessions. Pupils from F2 and Ks1 were able to explore our outdoor environment and they identified different types of leaves. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed this learning and are already excited for the next session.
Walk to School
We found out during the holidays that Poulton Lancelyn had come first in the whole of England for the amount of children who walk to school. We thought coming first in our region was a great achievement but to first nationally is outstanding. What a great start to a new half term! Thank you to everyone who takes an active part in supporting our walk to school scheme. Remember, if you have to travel by car, you could always park further away from school and then park and stride.
