It has been such a great start to the term today, the children (and staff) have all come back with smiling faces and the school has been very busy with lots of different learning activities taking place. We have been joined today by a new member of staff, Joanne, who will be based initially as part of the Class 2J team.

This week our Year 6 pupils begin their swimming block and I know the children are already excited about going.

Christmas Celebrations

  Christmas Fair

Thank you to all our amazing families who supported our Christmas Fair last Friday – we made an amazing £1,100. This has taken our Sensory Room Fund raising total to….Santa Needs HELP!

This week we have truly enjoyed our Christmas Performance of Santa needs HELP! Once again the children at Ladywood astounded us by their singing, dancing, acting and signing parts. Well done to the children and staff for this amazing production as Santa got the help he needed! We were delighted to be joined by Virgin Media  as the runners up in the Schools Christmas Performance Competition this week who filmed one of our songs which will be broadcasted nationally.

Arts Award

Continuing with our creative theme, we are delighted to have been awarded Arts Mark Platinum. Again this reflects the amazing talents of our children as well as our fabulous staff.

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend,

Children in Need!

We had a very special visitor today at Ladywood, in time for Children in Need on Friday…Pudsey Bear!

Pudsey visited the children in each classroom to give out invitations to the Pudsey Pyjama Party on Friday!

We can’t wait to see you there and raise lots of money for Children In Need 🙂

Remembrance week

Many of our classes this week have been thinking about Remembrance Day. We had a very emotional assembly by 6W on Thursday in which all classes laid a wreath to remember those who have lost their life in a war.

On Sunday we will be attending the Bolton and Little Lever Remembrance services.

Wishing everyone a very happy weekend
