Inspirational Speaker

Today, Devonshire Road had the privilege of having an assembly from the inspirational Elizabeth Wright, a Paralympic swimmer from Australia. The assembly focused on being the best we can be, and was incredibly engaging. Year 6 were even lucky enough to have workshops about Character Building, and loved it. The children all took something from the sessions, and an amazing morning was had by all!

Debating Club – The Competition

Today, our Year 6 children worked incredibly hard in their first ever competitive debate against a school from Blackburn, organised by Mr Simpson.

Even though they did not win the debate, they did the school proud, and ultimately, the practise will help them in the future.

Well done!

Year 4 Egyptolgist visit.


Year 4 were extremely lucky this week to have Michael Eastwood (an expert in all things Egyptian)  in class for the day.

Both classes were very enthusiastic and loved learning about the pyramids, mummies and hieroglyphs.

No children were harmed during the mummification process.
