School have enjoyed being involved in creating a heritage trail called 'The Lost Boys of Bickershaw' around Victoria Fields. Children visited the Museum of Wigan Life to research local WW1 casualties as well as spending time in Victoria Fields familiarising ourselves with the local area. The children also worked with the artist Lucy Wray to create the poppy route markers.
Community Christmas lunch in school
We invited Elderly people from the community to visit our school and have Christmas Lunch. Year 3/4 class sang them Christmas carols and hymns. They then gave each of them gifts they had wrapped and cards they had made themselves.
Mrs Clarke turns 100
At the end of February, local Bickershaw resident Dora Clarke turned 100. Children delivered her 100th birthday cards, made by the children in school. They sang to her and also read the card from the Queen and telegram .
Year 4/5 and Reception took part in a community concert for local residents at Christmas.
The residents ate a delicious Christmas dinner prepared by Mrs Millington before being entertained with songs from the children in Year 4/5 and Reception.
Y5/6 entertained the local residents, in Church, by singing carols. The children had a lovely afternoon as they helped serve members of the community refreshments and they joined in with the games and activities.
