Primary School


Welcome to Reception:

Mrs Chisnall,

Mrs Chadwick, Mrs Kaur and Mrs Whitworth



Here you can see what we are learning about in class, view our weekly routines and keep up to date with notices.

We are taking part in a new Lancashire campaign to promote the importance of communication and language for our youngest children.


Walk and Talk is about inspiring families to go outside and communicate with each other.

Talking to young children during everyday activities can help them learn communication skills such as:

  • listening
  • attention
  • turn taking in a conversation
  • learning new words

Being outside is good for our wellbeing and in Lancashire we have lots of beautiful places to walk and talk.


Look out on Seesaw for the latest prompt cards and games. Your child can win a badge for taking part!





Prayers We Say in School


At Start of Day

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

From my head to my heart, from one shoulder to the other, I belong to you - God my Father.


Oh my God I give to you

all that I say and think and do,

all my work and happy play

I will give to you today. Amen.


Before Meals

Bless us, Oh God as we sit together,

Bless the food we eat today,

Bless the hands that made our food,

Bless us, Oh God, Amen.


After Meals

Thank you God for the food we have eaten,

Thank you God for our good friends,

Thank you God, Amen.


At End of Day 

God our Father, we've come to say

Thank you for your love today.

Thank you for my family

and all the friends you give to me.

Guard me in the dark of night

and in the morning send your light. Amen.


We also say

The Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.


The Hail Mary

  Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.


Please help your children to learn these prayers by saying them at home with the family.
